damn...don't you just love baseless statistics that can't be proven or disproven? for example i could say 85% of statistics are made up:)

Im not sure of the specifics, but if a Olympic wrestler or Judo player studied 8 hours a day for 2 weeks it's not improbable that he could adjust his 34 basic techniques to a reasonable enough level to teach them right?
Although participation in the ICP requires only a one-time flat fee, all CTCs pay a monthly licensing fee.......
ANYONE have any idea what:
1) the one time flat fee is????????
2) What the CTC monthly fees are??????
I don't think its going to be cheap.......I hear the other Gracie camp bases there monthly affiliation fees on how many students you have....and they want to know everything you do.

I noticed Gracies will not release the Licensing Fees until "Deemed Eligable" which sends a clear message that it's not cheap.

A lot of the advertising for this program makes me sad. But, Gracie Cape Town is a good school with solid grappling skills. Two of our guys were there for a visit recently and they really loved the atmosphere, attitude, and big-ass floor fans. Damn we need some of those.
The Gracies have always taught Bullshido. This online program is just another moneymaking scheme as any "blue belts" opening a school to teach the stuff they learned online will have to pay money up to the Gracie family.
This is insane. It's even crazier somehow than getting a blue belt online
