    Willy: thanks for the link, it looks pretty good. Cheaper than the last one I checked out, a lot closer, and offers more classes at better, less intrusive times.

    And Coldwater is about two hours from where I live, so no can do on that

    3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

    Dammit. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. After checking out the website in a bit more detail, I noticed the highest ranking instructor there just got his brown belt this year. I'm not one to judge a guy too harshly on his rank (or lack thereof), and I appreciate the honesty, but ****. That seems like way too little experience to be teaching. It's too bad, too. Would've made a good school.

    AND THE HUNT CONTINUES....

    Willy: On the subject of driving 45 minutes to a school, I guess it depends on their schedule. I wouldn't drive out there for a one-hour class, but if there were multiple classes I was interested in, then we might have something.

    Boyd,
    Don't worry about whether or not your BJJ instructor is a black belt. Blues and purples have a lot to teach. A brown is great. Don't think of it like other arts.

    "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - for ever."
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    I was actually wondering about that. I know BJJ has a lot harsher standards on ranking and whatnot, and I suppose honesty is a good thing. I dunno, I guess I won't rule it out.

    So now I'm checking out another place, www.factormma.com The website, you'll notice, tells you ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, so I sent them an e-mail asking for basic stuff like a class schedule and whatnot. Anyone know about that Bryan Harper fellow?

    Boyd there was actually a thread about relative comparisons of ranks between martial arts.

    I think Punisher put it up.

    I've never heard of these guys Boyd. It may be because they've never been in a big event.

    Training two or three times a week, all things considered equal, it'll probably take you about 3.5-5 years for a purple belt in BJJ. One guy I know made blue belt in a year. That's with at least 2 hours of training a day, 5-6 days a week. Just to give you some sort of comparison to other grappling arts, I'd have to say that a decent pure judo BB has the same grappling skills as a blue belt.
