    Default A question for the instructors on here?

    Do you only teach privates to your own students and potential students who have obviously never trained BJJ before?

    I teach privates to people who ask to be taught. That has in the past included people from other teams.

    If a good instructor from another team was in town (or if I was travelling) I'd be happy to seek instruction and since I'm not a hypocrate, I treat anyone who wants to be taught the same way.

    Private session are about getting some 1-2-1 time with someone who can guide you thru the journey. They shouldn't be about tricks or secrets coz there really aren't any. If you spend enough hours on the mat with someone you can trust and train with in a progressive manner, you will discover and uncover everything. The private session shifts the focus to you. In teacher training, we were taught that as a teacher you enter the room with aims (what the students will gain) and objectives (what the teacher will gain) and these become very focused on the single learner when I'm teaching a private.

    One of the best things Gunni (Gunnar Nelson) said to me in a private was (I'm not here to pass the guard my way, but to help you figure out the best way for you).

    lol, the original question just seemed weirdly worded!

    I guess I would but I've never been asked and it strikes me as a bit weird if people want privates off guys from another team (unless it's a world level instructor).

    I don't have a team as such, even though I have trained quite a bit of no gi/MMA in the past depending on where I was living at the time. However, I have come across an ad online by a well known Black belt advertising privates. He has not mentioned anything about team affiliations and is seemingly happy to give privates to whomever wants them and I'm thinking about booking some. I just wondered if this was a strange thing for an instructor to do, teaching privates to people he knows nothing about and has never seen roll in class with other people etc?

    Is it mental of me to think that even though I'd get my moneysworth with this guy, perhaps I might be better to wait until I'm settled in a proper team with an instructor who has been able to watch me in training?

    You could get shit instruction off an instructor from a team you're affiliated to, you could get great instruction from someone you've never met. Only way to find out is try em out.

    The only thing I would find weird is if someone you were unaffiliated to offered a belt promotion.

    often the simplest answer is the right one.
