ok, first off, hey im new, now to the topic at hand.
i quote "Our PROGRAM incorporates a complimentary blend of Japanese and Brazilian theories and techniques and systematically teaches students how to use these time-honored systems to be effective students of self-defense" (i dont know how to quote yet, sry)
so i show up for my first class, and of course knowing nothing of the difference between japanese and brazilian jujitsu save where they're from, i see no difference between what ive seen of bjj on the internet. So i get to talking with the guy i was rolling with, a brown belt i think is what he was, and he tells me that what they teach is really just bjj, with some exceptions. I didnt poke around at what these exceptions are, but i was wondering if any of you had ever seen anything like it? I expect to keep studying there, as i really enjoyed my first class, but i dont really know about this whole hybrid style deal.
