    It's funny i recently just took up BJJ and Yoga pretty much at the same time although i took up the yoga for a form of exercise and relaxation to help my mind get away from from martial arts and aggressive/violent ideas ... oh well i'll just start knitting i guess.

    With the BJJ I do in cross art training, I could definitely see the advantages to Yoga, both on flexibility and core strength. As a swimmer, and being very flexible since my pre-teen years... I tend to use my legs in ways few others do when we roll. Leads to "how did you do that" discussions. On top of everything else... reduced injury. Also causes me frustration now after that left knee hyper-extension... I have lost my advantage on that side.
