I guess if young kids to judo, you can do bjj…
Judo grappling is generally altered for younger groups. For example, USJF forbids joint locks on the ground for kids under 16.
For the OP, it depends, at 15 do you think you’re done growing? If not, just practice wrestling and such, but avoid joint locks
I thought BJJ was about gaining leverage etc. so size wasn’t so important?
Anyway I’m about 6’1-6’2 weighing round about 180 pounds. But I’m definitely not done growing yet.
And to everyone else: thanks for the helpful answers.
the restriction doesn’t have anything to do with size per se, it has to do with whether your bones are done growing. There is a possibility that repeated joint locks could cause stunted growth. Sounds like at 6’2" you’re probably pretty close to being done with bone growth!
once your joints are up to it, you’re right, BJJ has nothing to do with size
I’m sorry, but you’re going to have to qualify this claim. Does this mean Roger Gracie could’ve been like 7 ft tall if he hadn’t started so young? Or Marcello’s growth was stunted even though his parents are shorter than him?
