    As in, the members here.

    Do most of you train with a college wrestling team? or your MMA school? or use a BJJ instructor to teach you basic wrestling moves?

    I took a silly kinesiology class at school, but there were two guys that wrestled in high school and they taught me a lot.

    My submission wrestling coach has been wrestling his whole life, too, and he teaches us a bit of takedowns and the like.

    our bjj guys try to teach us some stuff but noone really understands what they are doing and noone really learns anything useful
    it's all about the buttscoot and getting double legged into guard.

    I recently started getting coaching from a guy who wrestled through HS and coached and officiated through college (couldn't wrestle due to a neck injury). it's good instruction and has been cleaning up my wrestling a lot.

    before that it was whatever info I got from my instructors or from watching guys in bjj class who used to wrestle and how they moved and drilled.
