jujitsu new guy
I recently started training in martial arts again and my new school has a Jujitsu program.
How many are familiar with the USJJF organization? I know my school doesn't have any ties to BJJ, but we seem to focus a lot on ground work and I like this, but I just wonder at what level it's at. My instructor dominates everyone and he's not a big guy. I don't think I've seen one student escape or improve their position on the guy.
Wrong forum, i'm sure this will be moved shortly.
Read the rules and stickies before posting.
Introduce yourself in Newbietown.
I thought asking about the USJJF standards was appropriate here?
If you had read the rules, you know the ones that say "READ ME" you'd know that isn't the case.
Moved.....of course maybe the Judo/Jujitsu section might have been better.
welcome to this forum. You'll see that by reading the FAQ you will get a slightly less downright hostile treatment.
A teacher usually beats his students, if he's any good at least. At first that is.
Is USJJF Sport Jujitsu or more like submission grappling/BJJ? If it is the later how do your students do at NAGA events?
I don’t think that means very much one way or another. Regardless of whether it’s a shitty school or a truly great one, I’d expect the instructor to know more than the students, and know all their tricks and their weaknesses—after all, he taught them! And if it were a shitty school, people who discovered that they can outgrapple the instructor would probably leave and seek better instruction, leaving only students who don’t know better.

I took a quick look at their tournament rules and they have a whole array of different competition types, from kata and self defence moves to “JJIF Fighting System” with strikes, takedowns, and groundwork (but penalties for “excessive force”? wonder what the striking is like) to a “Ju-Jitsu Grappling” ruleset similar to BJJ with gi and no-gi divisions.
