    What do you guys think about training under two different trainers for bjj......The reason I ask is that my current teacher only has classes on M,W,Thur,Sat. Thursday is no gi, all other days are gi........

    I have found another trainer that trains no gi on Fri and Sun.

    I have stopped going to the gym to concentrate more on bjj and I am looking at going 6 days a week if possible. Do you think it is bad to learn from two different teachers......

    all it can do is help. two perspectives is better than one when you're learning

    it would be really good to learn from two teachers. and to roll with two different sets of students would help lots also.

    keep an open mind about what/how you learn. i dunno the instructors.. but if you learn the same thing two diff ways. work on it both ways, but don't contradict the instructor because you think you know better.

    (i'm having the problem with my judo instructor and bjj instructor)

    my current instructor is a black belt under machado......he is just sick....he teaches mainly gi with one no gi day.....

    the other instructor is mainly no gi....I think I want to find out more information about his back ground before I go and train with him....

    Since I am so new I don't want to pick up any bad habits.....

    I do wish i could train more than four days a week....I would like 5-6 days for sure.....

    man if you have the time and money to support it I'd do it. it made a hell of an impact on my grappling to see moves from two different perspectives, plus maybe one has tricks the other doesn't.

    ask them first.. americans are sometimes more open minded about this. this is a BIG no-no for brazilian schools. its a good way to get a bad reputation.

    the more people you train with the better. you get different approaches to the same submitions you also get a different group of people that you can roll with as well.
