    Or are you doing the complete opposite?

    For me my instructor has a heavy top-game and wrestling and all the guys training do as well, but i like to play guard a lot. Kinda sucks because everybody is so good at passing different guards i just get smashed :o

    Yes and no. They're about my size/build, so to a point yes, but I'm still trying to figure out what works well for me.

    No. I play my game. My instructor is a 270 pound black belt who lays on his back and sweeps anyone and everyone. Although I'm developing better sweeps daily, my game is nothing like his and I doubt it ever will be.

    :rofl: werd.

    instructor is 2nd degree bb, and at the very least 250. IF he's ever on his back he'll have you swept in about 5 seconds, and he has a very mean top game. I'm a small guy so I like working from my back. :dunno:

    i took a small piece from everybody i trained with.

    the two people i took the most from are:

    jason brudvik (genius with the overhook)

    and marcel louzado (my guard passing, even though it still needs some work)

    I have adapted a little to my coach's game but I've got my own game and it is drastically different from his. In fact, I would say I developed it to counter him for the most part because I roll with him the most.
