    When Carlos Machado did a seminar at my old BJJ school, he also tested a bunch of the white belts for their belt stripes after he was done teaching technique. I woud up hanging around to watch a lot of that, because there were these fat guys in Chute Box gis who had no clue what they were doing and it was fun to watch Carlos rag on them.

    With a different kind of teacher you learn different techniques or totally different gameplay. People are different mostly by physical stats but also mentally and skillfully. You might find lots of good techniques from a new teacher, but you still need to practise alot to really learn them.

    Is it to network and meet people?
    Yes. I have met some nice sparring partners in seminars. It gets quite boring to spar with the same guys again and again. Especially when there are only few of the same weight class and similar skill level.

    Do the 6th degree bb school owners look for new black belt students to recruit?
    uhmmm... honestly don't know, but I doubt it's the main purpose of seminars.

    Is it to make money? Is this how a black belt makes extra money without opening a school?
    Yes. And even if a BB has a school he/she might travel around world teaching others. I see nothing wrong earning some money from it, but I don't personally like when it cost so freaking much.

    If you're intrested I know couple of fast, simple and cheap ways to get a blackbelt...

    Damn. That explains a lot. So now all I have to do is make up a style and a fictious history for myself, and I'm all set to rook the gullible for all they are worth.

    How is it a stupid question?

    There are threads here about people who get a black belt in a MA like Kempo, then they go find a Taekwondo school where the teacher agrees to a quick promotion to black belt in the new style. Why? Because they share a great deal in common and there is no reason to do the basics over. There are other threads about how some schools and styles that will NEVER promote in the black belt ranks unless the student recreuits new members. I'll find the thread if you want-- about the guy with a black belt who couldn't get promoted until he agreed to give a % of his new schools revenue to his old teacher and then he got promoted up the ranks quick.

    Back on topic--

    What is the point of a seminar?

    Is it just to teach a techique? Can't you get that in your home school?

    Is it to network and meet people? Do the 6th degree bb school owners look for new black belt students to recruit?

    Is it to make money? Is this how a black belt makes extra money without opening a school?
    This needs repeating. :suicide: :suicide: :suicide: :suicide: :suicide:



    A lot of your questions will be answered the moment you decide to leave the godamm keyboard alone and train once and for all (specially in Judo and/or Boxing as it was suggested in other threads.) :violent1: :violent1: :violent1: :violent1: :violent1:

    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
