    Alex Wilkie's used to have some decent grapplers on the local level. There were some local fighters that used to do ground training there, and they had okay basics, although nothing spectacular. The kickboxing was the strength of the place, not the ground.

    You could definitely do worse, but depending on your specific goals and your location, you can probably do better. Where in New Jersey are you?

    I just kind of thought that a purple belt with his own full time school with his name above the door was slightly unusual?

    It's not unusual to have Purple Belt BJJ instructors. Unlike most other MAs black belt level jujitsu instructors are relatively hard to come by.

    The curriculum looks okay, check it out to see how they train and if the instructors can pound some student ass without difficulty (they should if it's a good place).

    Yes, that does sound sexual. I'm a friendly guy.

    Purple is so far away I can't even begin to contemplate Blue. Ah, the Bujinkan served me well...

    In my, admittedly limited, experience, you often get a purple belt running a small satellite of a big org, teaching the odd class/private at a bigger school or running a class for small/no profit in places where there's no black belts. Does no one else find one running his own full time school a little unusual? If not, feel free to let this line of discussion die, as I'm obviously confused here.

    At the place I do BJJ at, there's a purple that handles the actual class, but he is overseen by a black belt.

    I see no reason a purple belt in BJJ couldn't open his own school - particularly if he has good/extensive instruction in other martial arts.

    BJJ is rife with people that are "only" blue or purple belts -- but wrestled, boxed, or in general have extensive experience that is not traditionally 'ranked' in any way. Or maybe he's a black belt in Rex Kwon Do -- who knows? :)

    Two purple's run the bjj classes I checked out. If they know more than you and can teach you I don't see it as an issue.

    To echo gorrila, in my case one was a pretty decent greco wrassler and taught no-gi, the other a 4th dan in judo and he taught gi.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    My instructor is a purple belt, and he almost tapped me once.

    I just wanted to bump this thread back up and see if anyone else had any opinions/experience with this school? I'm thinking about training at this place since the prices at my current school are pretty high.
