    Looking for a training partner for the Sacramento/Folsom area. Want to have a supplement to 1x/wk instruction at local BJJ academy. I am a novice and am just interested in learning without getting injured. how would this work?

    Why not just go to the academy more? I think you will have problems finding a place you can practice that has mats and such...

    Why find "partners"... Anyone will do, just walk down the street and grab somebody. Work for position, do some catch-and-release subs, and then thanks them before moving along. You can do it just jogging around your neighborhood!

    You'll be amazed at the way it brings your game up.

    That had me laughing pretty good. You guys are right, I needed a twin brother like Matt Hughes to get some free training in.
