I am not a competitor, but I love Jiu Jitsu. I roll to stay in shape, learn self defense and hang out with my buds. Why do you roll? Phone Post 3.0

I am pretty much like you OP.  Two other reasons though... I am 40 and wrestled my entire childhood (1st through 12th grade) and it lets me get back into "the grind".  I also have a 14 year old who will be a Blue belt as soon as he hits 16 so its something him and I can do together and I can lead by example for him.

^^I'm a lot like Jason. I didn't wrestle growing up but as soon as my son started wrestling at 6 I wanted to do it to.
I found jiujitsu at the end of his first season and also wrestle when I can find big enough partners. It's nice to be able to participate rather than just spectate as a parent.
I'm not as good as junior but I think he respects the fact I get out there and get after it. Even when his former D1 coach throws me on my head. Lol

It's a family thing for me Phone Post

Well, thanks to the skills I have developed in BJJ, I was without doubt THE toughest M-F'er at my mom's recent 75th B-day Brunch... and that felt good.

I knew if Doris or Aunt Donna or even Uncle Kenny got out of line, sh!t was gonna hit the ground with a quickness.

And like I announced to the table when they served the Mimosas, "Tap, Nap or Snap... I ain't putting up with ANY bullsh!t here today."

Because I am curled up like a ball. But actually, it's fun and good exercise. Stress relief, a good way to build camaraderie and so on.

It makes me feel better mentally and physically. Between the cardiovascular demand, increased flexibility/mobility, and the social aspect it's better than any antidepressant.
