    There is no problem other than unrealistic expectations.

    Would you expect an old, overweight, out of shape guy to start tapping everyone left and right after one year of training? STFUAT.

    5 years is good to start judo. Bjj clubs I've seen so far are boring for kids.

    Honestly for my age I'm pretty toned. But cardio is an issue.

    I wouldnt say 18 months is a beginner, but even if you were a few months in, at least 3-4 rounds.

    it worked for the miyaos

    seriously though, he may train 6 days a week but it sounds like he could do more sparring. also, watch more film, easy to do anytime.

    situational sparring would be beneficial as well, to address the weakest aspects of his game.

    Well some very knowledgeable people on here are saying it's not enough because I only roll 2 or 3 times a class. How would I know if that's the norm or not without asking?

    Once again.
    It is a forum and you cannot just tell people to shut and keep training.

    In thus case, ts is not that old. He is not overweight. Actually I think he is small and that is the reason of his problem. And he is putting lot of training. Already.

    It's not really training if your not doing any hard rolling sessions. It's has to be technique + rolling. Technique only classes will only take you so far. Hard rolling is what sharpens everything.

    I agree.... just have to find the right amount for my age and my goals and that's what I'm hoping more knowledgeable people on here can help me determine:)

    Cardio tends to be scored subjectively.

    Do some tests find out if you actually have bad cardio before blaming it.

    Normally gassing is intensity related.

    Just my opinion, but I think people often make the mistake of looking for abstract answers to tangible problems. You getting dominated by less experienced people is probably not because of your training regimen, age, cardio, intensity level, etc, it's because of some very specific technical things you're doing or not doing that are allowing people to beat you. Most likely, you're lacking important defensive fundamentals in your guard. Also, you may still need to develop a simple yet effective gameplan necessary for success at lower belt levels.
