    You should wear a parachute to soften your landing.

    I know its a broad question, but how much difference does that extra Dan or two, make to the quality of the coaching. Carlo Knoester is also an IJF referee.
    An extra dan grade or two won't make or break someone as an instructor. You'll find high dan guys who suck as instructors, and lower dan guys who are very good.

    Given two guys who are good instructors, the one with more experience with Judo in different places and more competition experience will likely be the "better" coach. The refereeing angle can be a plus, except that some higher level refs are absolute arrogant pricks.

    You'll need to check out a club/program in any case before you choose. Look for coaching certifications/training from the NGB as well.

    A bad sign is if noobs get throwin into randori very quickly without any skills, especially ukemi (falling safely). Noob vs noob randori is typically counter productive.

    Either club looks good to me, the head guy at the kano school has a pretty impressive resume, and the WA Uni club looks good as well in that sense.

    Check in advance if they take non-students. Many Universities can't because of legal and university rules.

    Does anyone else have tips for a good school?

    I've trained with plenty of current and ex-squad members, you get your arse kicked, but you need prolonged exposure to someone of that level who knows how to teach to gain real benefit from it.

    Just getting pwned once doesn't help much. Repeated pwnings backed up by good coaching is what gets you there.

    There are good BJC people as well, the likes of Andy Marshall and Neil Roode spring to mind.

    Aye, you did. But once there what should I be looking for in particular? As it is I've tried two schools now, Wessex is next on the list, and I was reasonably impressed with one of them - but this is purely on my criteria of the instructor isn't a dick, and is better than me.

    Well, that's a difficult one.

    What I look for is a club that places a lot of emphasis on high quality drilling. And not just mindless, purposeless drilling.

    So there are lots of clubs that will make you do what I call shuttle uchikomi.



    This is fine when done with competent dan grades and in some cases 1st kyus. However, when done with adult beginners its a retarded drill. And constitutes mindless and purposeless drilling.

    Although the drill in of itself is not mindless or purposeless when applied inappropriately it indicates an approach to drilling that is mindless and purposeless.

    If you're doing purposeful and quality drilling like tsurikomi drills, tsugi ashi drills, basic movement drills etc...

    And perhaps most significantly you're drilling newaza uchikomi.

    Then you're probably at a good club.

    Whats so bad about people in Blue gi's?

    Also the rec club i train at is a BJA one and the more larger more competitive club is a BJC one.
    Is the bja supposed to be the better org? I hear alot of criticism from the BJC aimed at the BJA whats the beef?
