    Literally 5 mins from there is a Roger Gracie black belt who teaches a lot of BJJ self defence stuff.

    I visited one of these academies in SA whilst I was working out there last year. The guys running the club had a genuine passion for BJJ, but had limited access to good quality instruction themselves - not a Black belt for miles. In their case, signing up to the Gracie Academy makes sense, distance learning etc was their only real option but why you'd want to do this in London when there are so many excellent BJJ clubs and instructors, I have no idea. I'm guessing that the instructor is purple belt level at best? I may be wrong....

    My bad if I'm wrong but the guy seems to be a blue belt.

    Good business though from a financial pov, will make loads of off people willing to pay for this stuff

    You're probably right.... the SA lads running the GJJ classes were blue belts.

    lol at even paying for a private off a blue belt. Like paying for tuition off someone who just has GCSEs.

    The whole thing is horrible. I dunno why anyone would want to get involved in BJJ that way.

    Sorry. Do you stand them on their head/outclass them? Wouldn't be surprised if you do. But gcse analogy a tad harsh?
