    My jiu jitsu coach does have a certain dislike for the "Gracie" part of jiu jitsu. And he alwayed mentioned that they had techniques that they taught to keep the student behind, such as the gaurd pass mentioned previously. Because they didnt want students getter better then them, and because us Americans buy that ****. It is kinda easy to see how the rest of the world caught up very quickly to a lot of those guys and now they arent at the top of their game anymore.


    Aside from all that bullshit:

    I am probably their biggest proponent on this board.

    Sadly, I've seen what you have posted. :(

    I am looking to train here www.graciesydney.com
    Should I look into other schools because I will eventually be getting inferior training compared to other bjj places?

    I think people need to distinguish between Rorion's GJJ and other family members. Rickson for example has produced some excellent American black belts. Also, just because the last name is Gracie it doesn't mean they trained under the same people e.g. Renzo and Ralph trained at Barra Gracie, whereas Royler is from Gracie Humaita. They have the same name and are family but trained at different schools, although they sometimes still train together.

    Thanks Johnny, thats what I heard to. I am a relative n00b to bjj as it is part of the curriculum at my current school but am looking to do more and the Gracie Sydney school will make it so I can train 4 nites a week and it slots into my timetable and area with ease. Am looking forward to getting in there in the next month.

    the one arm in, one out guard pass is one of the primary closed guard pass techniques taught at my school. could somebody explain why this pass sucks and what are better ways to go about doing it?

    Infidel,
    It's not a bad pass at all, but it should be taught properly i.e not leaving one arm in and one out.

    Sooner or later, you're going to get triangled. Probably sooner.

    1) Two arms in
    2) Two arms out
