Do any of you train with your significant others? How is the dynamic? Who had more base knowledge? Do you have more or less patience with them than other people? Any advice?

As an FYI, my fiancé is my coach. I'm just curious to see how everybody else interacts with their partners. Phone Post 3.0

I was going to make the old "What's his name" joke, then realized that we live in a new age, and that your fiance and coach could totally be a him, and that I'm living in the past.

So what's his name?

Haha!! My name is Missy Estrada. I've been on the forum for years and I am a mod. I thought everybody knew I'm a girl, but I don't really go around announcing it. :) Phone Post 3.0

I took my fiancé in to train for a few times and it took so much convincing. I had to buy her a Gi and nice new rashies. Which I don't mind by the way I love buying her that stuff because I couldn't wait for her to get into it and have a roll.

But one training session she came along I got a little carried away in the roll and say on her a little hard. Since then she has never come back and been dirty about it ever since and that was a long time ago. I'm hoping to get her back into it with my brand new daughter sometime in the near future.

My wife trains. Almost made it to blue belt then she got too pregnant. She plans on coming back. We work well together and once the little one is old enough, family training will be awesome. Jiu jitsu used to be my happy place too but sharing it is amazing. Phone Post 3.0

My GF started training with my school about 2 years ago. About 8 months ago, I became the coach. I had about 7 years ahead of her. The dynamic hadn't really changed much, because she was already used to me working with her before I was the coach. She also came into Thai class before jits, and I am a coach in that class as well.

Actually it has helped my growth as a coach. She is 5'3 and 110 lbs. she helps me with insight into teaching smaller people. I have to help find ways to modify some techniques to work. That has helped as we have added more females.

Downside... She is trying to rip my arm off.

Competitive fucker. Phone Post 3.0

My wife trained for about a year, starting a little while before I got my blue belt. It was her idea, but she never seemed really committed to it, so I was not real surprised when she decided to stop. Training with her went fine, I worked with her just like I would any other beginner. Now that both of our kids are training, she has started to mention coming back. I hope she does, but I have no plans to push her to train again Phone Post 3.0

Only once with a girl who I've been on and off with for over 2 years. She is certifiable of course. She trained at another gym for a while. When I met her she was already a Blue.

All I can say is never again. Jiu Jitsu is my escape, it's my sanctuary where I go to be myself away from my girl.

I dated a couple other Jiu Jitsu chicks as well in the past. Let's just say there is a certain type that goes along with it. Again, never again. Phone Post 3.0

I was married for about 7 years when my wife decided to try it out. We've been married for 12 years now and she's still training. She's a 4 stripe blue . She may have been a purple by now but she is currently pregnant.

Her biggest gripe about being pregnant is not being able to train. Phone Post 3.0

My wife and I both train together and actively compete. I'm a two stripe blue belt, and she's a one stripe . . . but will probably catch me before we get promoted to purple belt.

It's pretty competitive, because she's mad strong for a female. If I start out trying to be too polite, I'll end up getting choked.

She gets pissed because, many times she's about to pass guard or otherwise score, I'll start tickling her and she can't stand it. She has slapped me pretty hard right on the mats before. It's a blast, and definitely has helped us as a couple.

Before she got pregnant she trained fairly often for a year or 2. It was up and down as far as attitude. Sometimes she wouldn't listen to me, but another person say the exact same thing and she would do it. It was equal parts frustrating and awesome. Phone Post 3.0
