    The main change came when the Booj head instructor picked up BJJ as a side-interest. He immediately realized the first problem was fitness and sought to fix that with us. Then he schooled us with his blue belt skills. Since then, all the instructors and the senior students have gone on to earn blue belts in BJJ. The school solution was to add BJJ to the curriculum. Now we have a core group at Blue Belt level in BJJ, and any students not taking pure BJJ classes are getting crappling instruction during regular classes.

    There are serious growing pains here. I can see that the instructors are busy reinventing the wheel, and due to the investment of time and effort in the Booj -- and also the relationships they have built -- they are not willing to make all the necessary changes. They think BJJ can simply be added to BBT when that's not exactly the case. As Shinbushi pointed out, there's no need to reinvent the wheel.

    My personal training has changed. I spend far more time per week in BJJ and my Contemporary Jeet Kune Do (JKD) classes and training than I do with Booj. If you want to know why I stay at all, it is primarily because I really enjoy the people in my Booj class. As I explore other arts, I have yet to find anything that wasn't touched on in Booj; so for me (and YMMV) Booj has provided an excellent background in theory. But it does not produce skill in the same way an Alive art can.
    nice advice.
    I already figured as much a bit when I see other people trying to incorporate more "modern" approaches, it always kind of disintegrates.
    also the reinventing the wheel bit and the social part...

    thanks a bunch!

    There you go again Lebell. You make a statement that assumes the rest of the world knows the nuances of Dutch culture. I don't think that most people know about the Schmorgenfeld.

    If you don't mind, I'll explain it to the rest of the board.

    OK people. At night, Dutch children empty their bowels immediately before going to bed. Their parents then collect the poop and set it on drying racks so that, in the morning, the freshly dried poo is ready to be taken to school.

    The children carry the poo in their Dookenhousen bags (specially made poo carrying bags) to schooll. They all line up before class in a large field, remove the dried dookey from their bags, turn and face each other, then yell and scream obscenities while threatening to fling the feces.

    This huge outpouring of rage and a potential shitstorm summons Schmorgenfeld, the Dutch demon of fecal warfare. Upon his appearance the children turn to him, cast their feces his way and swear allegiance to the Tookerschlouser (council of excrement elders).

    Then they go to their classrooms and learn how to add numbers.

    Oh there's so much more to our culture than just flinging poo.
    We also pee at eachothers feet, and we have a folkloristic sport called pukeswap, the name pretty much explains the game.

    At least the Dutch know the difference between piss and water, which is more than can be said for the septics.

    Yank 'Duuh dis er's a urinal aint it'

    Yes, yes it is. That's why its in the universal shape of a urinal, filled with piss and deodorizer blocks.

    You fucking retard.

    Seriously, and these people are not only legally allowed to own guns, but have control of a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons.

    We're all doomed.
