    One option might be to allow Bruno to smash these beginners then explain the only reason he was able to smash them was because he drilled the techniques A LOT.... Perhaps Bruno should explain to the beginners the importance of drilling etc., being good at few techniques rather than learning loads etc...

    I remember at BTT when Ze Marcello was showing us a technique and getting us to drill it he'd say and I quote, to do the technique '1 million times'....

    if you think its easy stop now

    no one achieved anything by doing nothing

    never argue with a fool

    if fighting is a pursuit rooted in pain, you will find the best teachers have often absorbed the most punishment themselves......and remained standing

    That sounds brilliant. The folks who do that will soon have a huge advantage over the ones who don't I bet.

    rjd,

    Here is the truth-those guys are never going to get good at BJJ and were never going to stay anyway.They don't have the mentality or the minerals.
    Because they are not prepared to work hard and learn the basics they will never win your team any medals and will always be looking for magic
    and the latest 'You Tube' technique somewhere else.
    It's hard but it's actually better in the long run if they get weeded out early
    and leave.Better now than after Bruno has spent his time and effort teaching them only to have them leave later.
    London is littered with people who left Carlson's and now regret it.
    Their loss.

    you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drill for reps
    man, when you're the nail, hang in there....until the day you become the hammer

    Agreed. There is no point trying to make everyone stay and keep training. Loads of people do 1-3 lessons, maybe up to two weeks worth, then disappear for whatever reason. Nothing will ever stop this happening.

    It's the people who train for a few months then disappear I don't understand.

    drilling is undoubtedly the way forward..

    but i feel that it is important t highlight the fact that there re more gifted individuals than others in regards to bjj gi/no gi..

    some people simply 'get it' better than others it could be argued that its genetics or natural ability..some may say just plain old hard work..but 'ability' to learn and understand the technique shown is priceless..

    for example..we have two guy that train..one is young and dedicated and thinks about training i would say 90% of his normal day..he has god given talent and ability to perform techniques well..

    we hve another..training and fighting who requires much more drilling than the later to understnd and do the technique correctly..

    so is it natural ability? Dedication? Intellegence? genuine love for what he does? Genetics?

    My own opinion..a little bit of them all..

    I would bet almost everyone wishes they did things differently when they first started BJJ, how many of us can say we did much proper drilling in our first 18 months/2 years?
