    I'd want to agree with you but I went to a Haystan affiliate once and, well, momma Lumpa always said if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

    IMO The Gracie Combatives is a good way to learn jiu jitsu.

    It's the core stuff that works regardless of whether the opponent is hitting you or not, or wearing a gi or not, or on concrete or not. The core stuff translates into sportive competition, but it doesn't necessarily work the other way round. Just my 2 cents.

    Phew... Expansive answer...

    Is that 'no' to the original question about can the poster learn the Gracie Combatives outside of the military? (in which case you're wrong, you can), or is it in answer to my post about the combatives programme being the useful core of jiu jitsu and working in tourneys too?

    The reason I believe this stuff works is because I teach the combatives programme fulltime (we have 15 scheduled classes per week, plus privates, and self defense seminars (did one just yesterday). The academy has been open here in Cape Town for just over 10 months, and we swept up at the South African Nationals last weekend, winning 14 golds, 10 silvers and 4 bronzes against teams from all over the country including affiliations of Renzo Gracie, Royler Gracie and Roberto Atalla.

    ...So is the Gracie Combatives stuff useful and worth a try in my opinion? Yes.

    Oh... Now I'm getting it... This forum isn't about helping people out by answering their questions, it's about making monosylabic dumbass comments without reasoning, foundation, or evidence.

    Sorry dude, go windup someone else. I'm off to teach some jiu jitsu.

    Hi Das Moose,

    We're imaginatively called 'Gracie Jiu Jitsu Cape Town' under Rener & Ryron. Roberto has a few affiliates around Jo'berg, notably a brown belt called Weikus who runs the 'tapoutacademy' there. But I think he does the rounds in terms of seminars when he's out here. The other academy in CT used to be Gracie Barra, but recently changed to Renzo Gracie.

    There are also representatives of Carlsons (via Marcus Soares), and Royler. But the relationships between the clubs are good and representatives from other affiliiations are welcome.

    PS. You're from Dublin? Do you know Paddy Carmody? I trained with him in Brazil for a while. Top bloke.

    So what is the break down of the belts / divisions these wins were in?

    Also, how many people were in the tournament?
