    i trained with Eduardo at Gymbox for a few months before I fucked Gymbox off. The guy is the business , very cool and very technical.
    I have always trained at RGA but because of work I could only get to a session offered at Gymbox, the guys is the business and very welcoming. He knows his stuff so get yourself along there and man up

    I do know that Eduardo is a quality guy though, and being affiliated to Braulio is only ever a good thing.

    Why not just go along and try a class though? I never understand why people ask so many questions online. Just train... if you like it, keep training there.
    It's probably because they have little or no expereince so have nothing to compare it to. Simple really.

    I know loads of people who have wasted years training at bad Muay Thai Gyms as they had no idea of what 'real' muay thai is. It's only when after they go to a few shows and see the other camps it finally dawns on them.

    Agreed this sucks and seems to be a simple ploy for handing out belts after a set time period rather than actually earning the belt and being the level required, is sad as i never thought BJJ would fall into this.

    I had no experience of any martial art before I started jiu-jitsu... I just went along, got my ass kicked, kept going and now I do the ass kicking.

    But surely having a set structure is a good thing? Especially for beginners. Calling it a curriculum sounds awful though.

    How do you teach a set structure to a class of varying belt levels and what do you teach if the curriculum says one thing but you think something else is more needed by your team?

    A good instructor should know what is the best thing to teach their team each class.

    Beginners would have to learn the same stuff though? When they've nailed that stuff then they could move to a more advanced class. Obviously if a club only has mixed classes it's a different story.

    So it would be like Karate but on the ground?

    Not really. No katas or anything that formal. But beginners must surely have to start somewhere, and isn't it the case that they'd most probably be learning the same stuff?
