    Where do you live? I work at an MMA gym that teaches grappling so I might be able to help you out.

    Mostly BJJ and grappling classes cover just the mat work and not takedowns so it really won't help your wrestling from neutral. I was trying to train in both last year and it kind of messed me up.

    The good thing about BJJ is that it gets you more aware of moving your hips when you are working your submissions, and getting used to that makes you more mobile when you go back to amateur wrestling. But it also creates some bad habits (like going to your back or pulling guard off a takedown).

    The MMA schools ask the wrestling coaches to come in and teach takedown technique. Wrestlers are much better at that skill area.

    What city specifically? There are a ton of places in that area.

    Most jiu-jitsu schools offer no-gi classes (no-gi=grappling, wearing the gi=bjj)

    I favor grappling, b/c the style is more aggressive I think.
    However knowledge of jiu jitsu is imperative in an MMA fight.
    I think if you want to be a better grappler you have to "know" the submission style.
    Jiu Jitsu has its strengths in using less energy, therefore, it won't necessarily be great conditioning for wrestling unless you grapple like a high school wrestler on their mat.
    Wrestling in my experience is a very constant struggle, always using energy, even the most technique oriented grapplers, often expend more energy than necessary to take someone down.
    Jiu Jitsu I've heard translates into meaning something like "the easy way"
    Meaning the moves should be easy, they should seem effortless, and they should be fluid.
    Wrestling is not this way.
    Judo will help with your takedown experience, but nothing translates completely, they will only crosstrain you for something like MMA, you can't use the moves from one during the other.
    The only purpose this would really serve is self betterment.
    KuDoS to that

    San Jose State has the best college judo program in the country.
    I would contact one of the coaches and see if they can give you some dojo options for your area.
    My son was in a combat judo school (judo/jui jitsu/silat) at a very young age and it helped his wrestling. He became more flexible, developed a keen sense of touch, better incorporated his feet in matches (trips/sweeps) and learned new escapes from trouble positions. Everyone has a different experience; however, it will be well worth your time/effort.

    Norfolk School of Judo and Jui Jitsu Student's Goal

    In learning combat Judo, you will learn techniques, feel, flexibility,
    speed and power. In learning the techniques, you will learn how to
    pivot and take falls. In learning feel (touch), you will learn how to feel
    and think like your opponent. In flexibility, your body will learn how
    to move from the joints and how to relax to relax from the joints and
    how to attack and counter-attack. Speed will come with flexibility,
    technique and feel. Power is the combination of technique, speed,
    flexibility and feel (touch). Why you use your entire body to do
    your techniques? To maximize power one must use all tools available.

    There are a dozen judo clubs that are nearby. You can go to California Judo Inc. and get links to clubs nearby, good luck have fun. Remember Judo is not wrestling don't try to make it wrestling. Focus on the judo specific techniques even if it means "losing" avoid falling back to wrestling. In the end you will be a better judoka and wrestler.
