Martial artist wanted to start Simplefit

I am a martial artist and I have enough off all these forums with their heavy weightlifting routines. I know this site for long way back, before I felt into the trap off training with heavy weights again.
I am getting a little bit older now and I have decided that I dont need all these heavy stuff, so I want to go back to bodyweight again and I know that Simplefit has great workouts.
But I dont know were I can find these workouts, can someone point me the way to them?
Because if I remember it right there were beginners workouts, advanced etc. but I dont know for sure.
And do you have maybay more advice for me as martial artist? I mean, how often to train etc. etc.
Any advice would be more then welcome, and I realy like to make a start with the workouts off Simplefit (sorry for my bad Englisch, I am from the Netherlands).
I want to gain some strength, endurance etc to translate to my martial arts training, so I dont have to look like a bodybuilder, but just look compact and strong without bulky muscles.
Hope someone can react

reddragon,
Here is the webpage for the workouts http://www.simplefit.org/workout.html

I would just start with level one and progress through the levels it's probably the best to do the workouts on M,W,F to give yourself ample rest. I am not a martial artist but this is the way that I am progressing through the levels. I hope this helps.

Hello chongtxtx, thanks for reacting and for the link.
3 Days a week seems very fine to me, I think its a good combination with my martal arts training. How long do you foolow these routines if I may ask? And what are the results?
I like the fact that there is progression in it, so you can go from easy to advanced. And off course because it looks simple, you dont have to learn all kind off exercises.
I was just wondering about the results. Thanks again.

reddragon,
I have been following the program for a little more than a month. In that time I have lost 5 lbs and my body composition has changed a bit my arms are bigger and shoulders are starting to get bigger as well. My cardio because of all the squats has improved quite a bit. I hope to post some pictures here soon with my progression. I wish you great success in your training.
