Much like a porn star, the dark side will swallow you completely, sooner or later. It is inevitable."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

I have some experience in both, but mostly BJJ.
CSW has kind of low standards for instructors, especially compared to BJJ.
Most CSW instructors took some seminars from Paulson & trained grappling on their own.
The material is fine, it's just that the only really good CSW instructors I have seen have also bee serious BJJ guys.
Even the CSW at Inosanto's is kind of weak.;Paulson is not there that much and it is mostly people of low -moderate skill level there. HE himself is excellent --don't get me wrong. But overall if it is a decent BJJ school, IN GENERAL, you will learn grappling better than at a CSW school. Odds are the BJJ teacher has a LOT more mat time than the CSW teacher.
Also Keep in mind, alot of CSW teachers ALSO teach part of or the entire Inosanto Curriculum: JKD, Kali, Wing Chun, Silat, Savate, Muay Thai, etc.

If all else is equal, and you still can't decide, bear in mind that a Jujitsu Gi will set you back approx. $100.
