Strange new instructors and you!
Hear hear motherfuckers, tharuz has got a story to tell you:
It was another day in the usual life of tharuz.
I was forced to eat at McDonalds and now I'm skeptical whether I want to continue going to my class or be fucked by the coming hurricane.
As I just finished muay thai class successfully without puking, I noticed something different about my BJJ class:
there are a couple of new guys in town.
and it ain't pretty.
I noticed one of them in particular:
a fat, short and stubby arabic looking man with a white gi and a very fucked up belt.
you couldn't tell what color it was, it seemed some sort of blue with white spots from a bad washing, one belt he never seemed to replace for a new one.
either that or some kind of pink.
This man speaks with a lisp, likes to joke around, and acts like he owns the place.
Ladies and Gentlemen: This is my new BJJ instructor.
WHAT THE ****?!
Most. Pollitically Correct Class. Ever!
just as pink belt introduces himself, he informs us that he knows some Judo
I think to myself:"Good, now I have someone to learn Judo from"
and I'm right, so far I have nothing to complain about from that aspect, other than BJJ classes are as of now more Crapjudo oriented than BJJ oriented.
never mind that: He paired me up with someone we will now call "stereotypical asian kid" the rest of the class, and just as he had me do a ballroom dance with a nagi sage twist to it, guess what?
he makes a gay joke.
Impliying we're gay?
the other kid was tense; I wasn't.
and I'm not joking around with you, mr.n00b instructor, only reason you're here is beacause the chief instructor's too lazy to teach us anymore.
"don't be silly. you're learning judo"
WHAT ABOUT BJJ ************?
and I was even nice to both motherfuckers.
all goddamn class.
let me tell you how it used to go around these parts:
We had half an hour of techniques, half an hour of rolling.
plain and simple.
this guy fucked the whole class up.
he's teaching us too much useless ****: falls, running, "warm ups" a half assed throw.......
and the icing on the cake:
he taught one technique the entire class, want to know what that is?
A FUCKING ARMBAR FOR ALL THE N00BS!
to be fair, he did ask us what we wanted to learn, and I said rubber guard
want to know what he did?
he judged me based on how many months of training I had.
This coming from the guy who JUST BARGED IN WITH HIS FAIRY BULLSHIT?
he gave me the same old traditional crock of ****:
"you'll hurt your knees"
that was the main point betwixt the colorful lenguage I'm trying to forget.
so I proceeded to do the splits and tell him not to worry about my flexibility, and he then told me I could "try it out in the last 10 minutes of rolling", asked me for my name, and told me to buy the all important GI.
YOU SON OF A BITCH!
I'M NOT GOING TO USE A GI AND LEARN GI STYLE JIU-JITSU, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU BITCH AT ME.
I wish I'd learn from Eddie Bravo himself......
I don't like this new guy, not beacause he's probably gay-I'm cool with that, but beacause he tries to rule **** and change **** with his traditional jiu-jitsu
I dont want to commute 1 hour in traffic just to learn a basic fuckng armbar, some half assed "workout", some half assed "judo" and roll "soft" with stereotypical asian kid for less than 10 minutes. he's easier to tapout than my paternal grandpa, and he's dead!
I'm paying $120 plus gas for god's sakes.
I dont give a **** if my instructor is reading this, I just wanted to exaggerate alittle bit over the internet.
this guy and I are actually in pretty good terms right now. I just dont like the way he teaches. I want to know some moves.
post your stories of instructors whose teaching methods you've disagreed with in the past.
Wow tharuz. I'm sure you could get a doctor to prescribe you some prozac. But yeah that does sound sucky. The only time I've been dissatisfied was when I went to my University's BJJ club the blue belt teaching was crap my room mate who trained with me back home never came back until a blackbelt came.
Pretty much man, just don't go, find another place. Also plan your thread out more, it was a bit of hassle just reading that, I was lost on many points there.
I understand you're mad / angry / whatever about what's going on ... but is there any chance you can just find another place to train?
Use paragraphs, not a big space between each sentence.
That was pretty funny. I award you +10 house points.
P.S. I'm going to armbar the hurricane. Are you going to as well? Are you a hurrican or a hurrican't!? (Teehee)
I'm just going to wait to see what happens with these new BJJ classes.
I think the guy just teaches tuesdays, but today was a monday so I dont know......
seriously...what the ****?
I just wanted to complain about this traditionalist ************ and his bullshit, people say he's really good at jui-jitsu- my plan is to learn a little rubber guard and tap him out.
Naw, don't leave after the first class. The teacher is the noob, not tharuz. The teacher is also the employee and he needs to know what his job is. He's supposed to teach BJJ, not pseudo-judo. Granted BJJ IS pseudo-judo, but what has been reported is just bad. Try talking to the original teacher and let him know what's up. If nothing else, then yeah I guess leave, but still give it a shot.
edit: damn you people got a few posts in before me....
I'm decided Eduardo the "hurricane" is nothing but a NASA hoax.
