    Thanks for your insights guys, it was very informative....As for those questions, there is a problem. My japanese is at an about intermediate level I would say....I asked them this once a while back (back when it was even worse) and they told me but I didn't really understand due to my limited vocab. I don't want to ask them the same thing over and over, so I will have to ask the other students people if they know...

    I just know that one guy is a 3rd Degree BB in Karate and won one national tournament in Tokyo, and lost his second by KO...The JJ part i didn't understand.

    It sounds good to me, some people dig formal training situations, some do better in more "open mat" type situations. If you are happy trainign where you are and you can school any newb that turns up then dont sweat it. Keep training and maybe take the occasional private lesson with a BJJ blackbelt and youll be golden.

    i didnt read the whole thread but i disagree with the people saying "seek REAL training"

    i think this place sounds awesome.

    but if you want to get graded and do competition, i would seek out a legit club then

Our school has been around since 1994, though, so the depth has been built in over the years. So, if you have access to a school that offers that kind of depth or more, then I would say go there, but I think what you're doing now is pretty good.
    Oh snap, Weechey, where in NY do you train? Is it in Thornwood under Steve Kardian?

    I've been in classes under a certified purple, and also trained with certified black belts. I would say that your class structure is a great drop-in type of environment for sparring.

    However, the level of detail and insight you get from a black belt is quite a bit better. You can learn basic techniques, and then wonder why they don't quite work against pressure, against larger people, against strong wrestlers. Or you can learn from a certified black belt and watch them handle larger people, strong wrestlers and aggressive pressure, and have him teach and show you why in detail. That's far better.
