    What happens when people fight back? Some of that stuff looked like Aikido. Real judo matches and BJJ matches are a lot messier, from what I've seen.

    I'll be picking it up when it's finally released. I consider Tim one of my BJJ teachers plus he's also a friend of mine. All in all he's a fantastic teacher and a great competitor. His intructionals are usually really indepth and explain everything very clearly.

    Well being that he's a black belt in BJJ he's probably pretty familiar with tournaments. He competes a lot out on the west coast and most of the stuff he's pulled off in BJJ tournaments. I believe he took first in the Copa Pacifica this year.

    Cartmell? You're one of his students? Dempsey, you're a lucky man. I didn't know he was playing BJJ now, but seeing as he was a bagua man, I guess it's not a huge leap to take.

    Olddog, Ronin, diejie1, Dempsey's not nut-riding. Tim Cartmell is the real deal. I'd jump at the chance to get with him for any kind of training.

    I'm more of an indirect student. I live in El Paso but myself and a few other people try to bring him out to teach a few times a year. He doesn't really do any form of CMA anymore just jiu-jitsu. He's maintained some of the drills from bagua but that's about it. I think he only teaches cma as private lessons and seminars but his focus is on BJJ.

    I attend Shen Wu off and on as my schedule permits and you are correct. Tim teaches primarily BJJ with some of the CMA incorporated into throws/takedowns. He is a BB from Cleber Luciano in Huntington Beach.

    Most classes involve some type of "stand up" session before working on pure BJJ.

    I am not an expert in any way shape or form but training with Tim is great. Beyond being very hands on and technical in the way he runs his school, Tim is a wealth of knowledge who rolls with all students at the end of every class.

    Just my 2 Cents
