    Bravo. Cheaper, more chicks, and more weed connections. Seriously, I think Bravo's style is more principle based so you can invent more combinations.

    It is clear that I should have made this a poll. So I did.

    Marcelo Garcia. You are going to get more instructional time from him that from Eddie's seminar.

    *** EDIT ***

    Do you have any links/info on these two seminars????

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I would go Garcia.

    If I were breaking it down $$$: $150/6hours vs $50/2hours its about even.

    Personally I like gi and no-gi. So Garcia would be showing things I would like in both realms.

    But it seems like Bravo might be more of a 'rock star' type - wheras I think Garcia would be all business.

    The BIGGEST reason is that after the first day you might formulate some questions overnight as you think about things. Him coming back a 2nd day might allow you to get those answered. Sometimes it takes 24hrs before things really sink in. My skull is pretty thick.

    Hmm... Bravo is only doing rubber gaurd for $50? I am probably going to pay $50 to see Relson himself do a whole bunch of stuff. I am a gi bunny (the good kind! - love gi in hot sticky weather) - if you want to have a good gi game when you go to tournaments - then go to Garcia, because he will show some wicked cool moves with gi. :P

    Which do I choose?
    Are you more interested in developing your rubber guard or your back-taking/control/X-guard?

    Are you poor enough that the price is an issue?

    Are you extremely flexible, or extremely fast? Or both? Or neither?

    All things being equal, the Garcia one sounds like a better seminar.

    Go to Garcia's, learn the ways of magically getting rear mount.

    Plus actual price break down.

    Garcia's = $120 / 6 hours = $20 per hour
    Bravo's = $50 / 2 hours = $25 per hour

    And as nifty as rubber guard may be, I'd much rather work the stuff Garcia's got.

    I'd pick Garcia as I feel I could get more from his game, but I'm sure you'd learn from both.
