    island jiu jitsu?

    ok... so I saw some instructionals on youtube http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=islandjiujitsu and the techniques in the videos seem alright to show beginners but on the site www.islandjiujitsu.com they have a list of "highlight" videos where the instructors are doing all sorts of wacky spinning kick/board breaking/possibly mcdojo type stuff. To me it looks like they are teaching grappling without setups and possibly without intensive rolling. Anybody ever hear about them and know if they are a mcdojo?

    I watched the videos on youtube and they looked like BJJ - kind of. If you look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu8Jz...elated&search= you can see that his kimura is done with only the arm power. The way I learned it, you use your whole body to do that to the guy's arm so you could actually overpower his arm strength. Also, on the 2006 pictures on the actual website I saw some bullshit wristlock.

    I'm not gonna say its Bullshido, but if I had to put money on something, I'd say the guy in the ski cap went to a BJJ seminar and tried to make a course out of that. Of course, I'm just a noob to BJJ so that could just be a bad interpretation.

    Probably so. The owner of the school where I teach (yeah I know) TKD said that she would pay for my entry $500 to a MA school owners seminar. I was talking about starting BJJ ( I just started doing it 2 weeks ago , taking BJJ that is) and she told me....for $1500 bucks you can take a course in BJJ and they will certify you as a BJJ instructor. No kidding.

    For $3000 and your soul, my master, uh, I mean, I will give you a black belt.

    I went to the site and there's a pic of what seems to be Royce doing a seminar at that school in '94, so they've been dealing with at least some real BJJ for over a decade, I'm thinking probably not bullshido.






    Later, unidentified BJJ black belt shows up.

    Amusingly, I am more appreciative of the fact that I don't have cross-eyes, or a disproportionately small head after looking at those pics.

    I think his lack of a jawline makes his head look as small as it is. Also, you can watch the cross-eyed guy go from comically funny looking to...differently comically funny looking if you look at all the pics on the site.

    They probably aren't bullshido. They do some TKDish flashy kick moves, but I also saw a decent few legit takedowns (seio nage, osoto gari, aishi guruma (i think)), some armbars and triangles, it looks like they spar with a decent ammount of contact (more than your usually jjj place anyways) plus I got to give them props because in one of the instructor videos, it looks like the instructor pulls X-guard from standing to x guard sweep. I also saw a few aikidoish looking takedowns and wrist locks, but I have no experience with them, so I can't say too much stuff on that.

    My soul is dirty and tattered from years of abuse. You may not want it...how about we compromise at $2000?
