Part of my plan to drop about ten or twelve kilos while the ladies are away is to get more time in at the dojo. Traditional jujitsu is not the calorie furnace you get in the Brazilian offshoot, but it"ll do me. As I get older and the knees get creakier I find the ground-fighting harder.
By happy coincidence, however, I"m working through the second bar of my brown belt grading at the moment. Plenty of opportunity for burning off flab there.
