    As long as you aren't learning only from books, books provide a wealth of information about technique, training etc...

    i have several books related to training....

    Mastering Jiu-jitsu - Renzo Gracie
    Kodakan Judo - Jigoro Kano

    Numerous boxing related books...
    theres nothing wrong with books, but they cant be your soul source of instruction.

    Is that common in the states? I've never trained at a gym that offered private lessons for an extra fee.

    There's nothing wrong with books, per se. And both books, and instructional videos, are neat supplements to training. But you can't learn to fight by reading any more than you can learn to fight by doing kata.

    Screams bullshido?

    Oy Vey....

    Bullshido=martial techniques or claims that don't really work.

    Mcdojo=commecialized water down approach to mass produce martial arts with very little substance.

    I believe you're thinking on the Mcdojo side of this.

    Not to come to his defense but what does that have to do with anything? Most "Sifu's" couldn't produce many things in ways of certificates.

    That's funny. BJJ has a long claim of encouraging privates.

    In 2003, I took one private class a week, addded to my 5 - 7 group classes a week.

    Can you tell me where you base your statement that all privates are bullshido, as far as you are concerned?

    I'm pretty sure if I call my instructor to tell him he is bullshido, he'd be pissed.
