    Shaolin is affiliated with Premier. They run his school. I'm actually thinking of training there since it's very close to work -- but put off by the whole Premier thing.

    In one sense it's probably pretty savvy of Shaolin -- he (presumably) doesn't have to worry much about the day-to-day business operations, marketing, etc.
    There was nothing McDojo'y about the school when I took a trial class. But I can't speak for their non-BJJ operations. Premier's bread-and-butter was as a TKD belt factory in days past.

    So it's a situation of legit guys running a McDojo? Because I'm sure students of Shaolin are legit.

    No, not really. The McDojo guys run their McDojo (Krav, kiddie krotty, etc.) at two of the three Premier locations. Plus they have BJJ classes. The third location is Shaolin's school in Midtown. That seems to be a straight up BJJ school. But it's administered by the McDojo folks.

    I dunno if they hired Shaolin to teach, or he contracted with them to handle the business end of the school, or what. Shaolin's school didn't seem McDojo'y at all. It's odd.

    I submit people with wristlocks in bjj constantly. That said, I don't teach or recommend them to anyone. They are way to risking to setup and use.

    PS. The takedown in that video was awful.

    Two things: Judo contains not only wrist-locks, but how to menace somebody with a handgun (http://judoinfo.com/katagosh.htm). Naturally, this is an illegal technique in competition.

    The black belt with the white stripe in the middle is a (http://judopedia.com/index.php?title...nd_Belt_Colors) Joshi rank and means that the wearer is a chick.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    Sadly, if you read the bio someone linked earlier, he's a Judo BB and BJJ purple. But it sounds like he's primarily a Krav/SD instructor.

    Lol on the joshi belt.

    But the bottom line is that he should know better. :eusa_naug

    I was so hoping to chock this up to just being a shitty video series... maybe that will wind up being the case.
