    he fights mma. He lost to dan henderson in the UFC and to mark coleman in pride. He recently fought in the iFL

    the closest place to irvine with good bjj is anaheim or huntington beach. the places in irvine are way too mma oriented

    what have you heard?

    i have a few friends that train/used to train there and have put a few hours in myself. quality of instruction seemed fine (goes is almost always there), but i didnt like the emphasis of always finishing a sub- crossfaces, cranked air chokes, can openers, knee on chest, etc were always valid options

    edit: oh yeah his belt system is wack too

    ehh

    weird belt system and 1 hour long classes is good enough reason to me for sucking. the guy is obviously very legit, but that doesnt make it a good place to train necessarily

    a good BJJ'er doesn't mean he's a good instructor.

    My current gym focuses too much on MMA and not enough on BJJ. i think i'm going to look for another gym next year when my contract ends.

    make the drive. youre investing more than a hundred dollars a month probably. a 30-45 min drive is worth getting good instruction

    His gym is more mma focused. and most of his classes focus on leg locks.
    and i didnt get that great of a feeling of a comraderie from his students when i was there. all individuals, no real sense of a helping team. goes is way more interested in making cash, than making sure his students are legit bjj players.

    i think most TMA schools work like that, but for a bjj school that shit is way over the top. BJJ is such a chill martial art having a strict atmosphere like that IMO ruins the culture of BJJ.

    those rules are meant more for the kids classes.
    i had a difficult time trying to hear his or his assistants instruction when i was there. not because of his heavy accent, but because they like to blast angry ufc-style rock music during class. the stereo is on a shelf over the mat. ugh.

    plus i think its a bit ridiculous to have to ask permission to compete and/or participate in any other martial arts activities. :dunno:

    at my gym we just line up at the beginning and end and bow, and during class if we have a question for the instructors we just say "coach (name)" :dunno:

    is that strict?
