    BJJ

    Hello all. Haven't been around for a while, turns out bullshido takes up a bit more time than i can afford if i wanna pass my degree. I thought I'd see what people think about a query I've had for a while now. We all know there's plenty of **** teachers out there, ESPECIALLY in TMA, but what i wanna know is about BJJ...

    What are people's experience with BJJ instructors relating to their competence in the art and as teachers?

    I've had nothing but great instruction. Others haven't been so lucky. Hopefully they took their $ elsewhere.

    I've been lucky to have fantastic instruction for BJJ. Between the two blue belts (both now purple) who introduced me to the art, and my current instructor, Peter de Been, I can honestly say I've no cause for complaint whatsoever.

    I have had nothing but great instruction and open minds. Teachers who cross train in boxing/wrestling/MT/kickboxing.

    But every cart is going to have some broken eggs, I am sure if we dig far enough and deep enough we can find some.

    The thing is, the regular randori and competition of Jiu-Jitsu lets us lose enough on the mat that we dont develop into ego-maniacs easily. Even the phenoms started as white belts and lost a lot to get to the higher levels. Even BJ Penn can lose to GSP.

    Once we started to solve the language barrier, no problems.

    As long as your teacher is listed on BJJ.org (For Example : http://bjj.org/a/people/linton-dave.html, I went to his school for part of my trainiing), your more then likely get some great instruction.
