    Bravo. Cheaper, more chicks, and more weed connections. Seriously, I think Bravo's style is more principle based so you can invent more combinations.

    It is clear that I should have made this a poll. So I did.

    Marcelo Garcia. You are going to get more instructional time from him that from Eddie's seminar.

    *** EDIT ***

    Do you have any links/info on these two seminars????

    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

    I would go Garcia.

    If I were breaking it down $$$: $150/6hours vs $50/2hours its about even.

    Personally I like gi and no-gi. So Garcia would be showing things I would like in both realms.

    But it seems like Bravo might be more of a 'rock star' type - wheras I think Garcia would be all business.

    The BIGGEST reason is that after the first day you might formulate some questions overnight as you think about things. Him coming back a 2nd day might allow you to get those answered. Sometimes it takes 24hrs before things really sink in. My skull is pretty thick.

    Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
    Hmm... Bravo is only doing rubber gaurd for $50? I am probably going to pay $50 to see Relson himself do a whole bunch of stuff. I am a gi bunny (the good kind! - love gi in hot sticky weather) - if you want to have a good gi game when you go to tournaments - then go to Garcia, because he will show some wicked cool moves with gi. :P

    Which do I choose?
    Are you more interested in developing your rubber guard or your back-taking/control/X-guard?

    Are you poor enough that the price is an issue?

    Are you extremely flexible, or extremely fast? Or both? Or neither?

    All things being equal, the Garcia one sounds like a better seminar.

    Go to Garcia's, learn the ways of magically getting rear mount.

    Plus actual price break down.

    Garcia's = $120 / 6 hours = $20 per hour
    Bravo's = $50 / 2 hours = $25 per hour

    And as nifty as rubber guard may be, I'd much rather work the stuff Garcia's got.

    I'd pick Garcia as I feel I could get more from his game, but I'm sure you'd learn from both.
