Can I join a BJJ academy even if I’m obese?
I’m a fat guy (5’8, 240 lbs.) that wants to learn how to defend himself. Am I too fat to learn BJJ? I can’t do a basic tumble.

Yes, training will certainly help you lose weight and get in better shape, be consistent, and don't give up.

That depends. Are you going to do something about your obesity or not? And if not, what makes you think you are going learn to defend yourself? At the end of the day, if you do not have the initiative and cannot cultivate self-discipline such that you can change yourself to be more fit and leaner, then you are not going to the same initiative and self-discipline to learn a martial art?

You should try sumo wrestling instead.

Yes why not. You might actually loose weight and get into shape.
