Here I was thinking this thread was going to be about something ENTIRELY different."Keep a sharp knife, shiny boots and be on time."

They did teach you a good amount (probably too much IMHO) on the first day though. But if you like it, stick with it, while their advertising may be a point of contention for some, a solid grappling school is a good thing.

90% of what you're taught for the first few months you forget anyway so it doesn't really matter what they teach.

If they get to repeat the same or similar techniques over and over in each class, that may be good. If each class is substantially different from one another and yet each is jammed with info, that may be counterproductive. I have a hard time trying to remember what the **** we did last night (one submission and one guard pass), my mind would be in WTF mode with so much info.
It seems to me that they are using the term "Brazilian JJ" to denote grappling, or they are trying to give credit to BJJ for the grappling concepts they are incorporating in their JJ curriculum.
However, by using that term, it gives the idea, intentionally or not, that they have some sort of BJJ lineage (I hate that word.)
Even if it's BS in that part, meh, if what they teach works, and if you like it, just stick to it IMO. It will be hard to tell if they are teaching good stuff until you try it for a while.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

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

Instead of worrying about wether it's Brazilian or Japanese just ask them about competition. If they compete and do well then it should be a fine school to train at. I would think since they also train Judo and alot of the instructors seem to be ranked Judoka that they are not adverse to competition and it's probably a good school.
There's a JJJ school in my city that focuses on ground grappling and is basically run like your average BJJ school. They regularly compete at NAGA events and do pretty well for themselves. Not all JJJ is the same.

At this point it doesn't really matter what you train as long as you can guage how well they do in competition.
