Nice repping Carl :) and great to hear that the Trad JJ guys were positively curious about BJJ
I remember reading an article ages ago years before I started BJJ that said: "Karate is nothing" and what it meant was that Karate is no one thing. It's the training methods that make or break the style and that goes for any martial art really. If you drill against progressive resistence you can quickly separate what works from what doesn't (keeping in mind what you want it to work for).
I do however think that the arts that have a strong competitive side to them (BJJ, Judo, Boxing, wrestling, Muay Thai...even olympic TKD) seldom have overweight dan grades :p

Cheers Liam, it was a great weekend and yes the whole group were very open minded and joined in the BJJ sessions. I remmeber doing a seminar in Blackburn when I was a blue belt and it was rammed with high Dan grades and they criticised everything we did and when guard passing came, they sat it out and watched instead. They were the worst set of martial artists I've ever met, totally blinkered and wrappd up in their own importance.
Since the seminar, I have been invited to their annual shindig at Butlins next Easter weekend, where it will be packed full of red and white belts and the odd midnight blue I dare say :cool: In addition, some guys who came from Nottingham are now training BJJ and some of the local guys from Bury are coming to my Open Mat, so a job well done :cool:

Judo... seldom [has] overweight dan grades :pJudo is full of fat bastards. Fat bastards who can bury you, but fat bastard nonetheless. Half the Japanese Olympic team is straight up roly-poly, giant-baby-looking mother-fuckers.
