Hi Furious, bringing this back on topic, do you know which BJJ team Marcin is from and who he got his purple from? And is the BJJ with the gi or without?

thanks to all for the support, even if things went a little off topic - no harm done. Marcin Dragun( Bjj instructor) has told me what school he was involved with in poland and who awarded him his purple but I'm fucked if I can remember. I will be seeing him on thurs and will get more details that I can post here. The Bjj will be no gi for the time being but we will consider a gi class in the future (I believe it makes a more rounded ground game for a fighter)
What we are really looking to provide is a gym that trains aspiring fighters and encourages them to compete at a suitable level. We dont want to be one of those gyms that just takes your money and concentrates on the few elite guys in the gym. Anyone that displays a will, we will encourage.
Gym sounds great. I must come visit it sometime
Furious,Good Luck with your gym.
I don't believe we have any guys using 'Bully Boy Tactics' towards novices.
In fact when i partner up novices i always explain to their partners that they are beginners and to apply submissions slowly and for Americana's and Kimura's i tell my fighters to TELL the beginner to tap as they apply them.
We don't allow leg and foot locks for beginners.
We very rarely have people get injured and 90% of people who come training at the Gym end up joining.
Have you experienced "Bully Boy Tactic's" first hand at Carlsons or have we got a reputation?

Thanks for the support simon, Please accept my apologies if I offended you with my statement. I was not refering to carlsons . I have never trained at carlons so therefore cant comment and believe what you say 100%. I have met some guys from carlsons at shows and they have all left a good impression.
Again, my apologies.
Do you mind if I ask your name?
good luck with the club
