I just found that there's a Gracie Barra school near me. Anyone else train at one? How is it? I like my current instructor, but I don't feel like I'm learning a lot. Our classes (Minami-Ryu Ju Jitsu) now are structured as follows: Warm ups Falls (back falls from sitting, squatting, standing, side falls, front falls) Kicking a pad (front kick, side kick, round kick, knees standing, knees from sidemount) Boxing drills (jab, cross, hook, uppercut, elbows standing, elbows from mount, from guard, and while holding your opponent in guard) Rolls (forward roll staying down, forward roll coming up, back roll, kip or aerial roll) Push drills (push from the back, roll, defend a punch, push from the front, roll, defend a punch, push from the back to front fall defend against a mount) Then we'll work a standing technique against an attack for a few minutes. After that, we may work one or two ground techniques for a few minutes. Then we'll grapple 3 or 4 two minute rounds. IMO, it seems we're doing a lot of drilling that's not really teaching anything, and then we don't get a lot of time to learn new material. Since I've never trained JJ in another dojo, I don't know if this is normal. This coupled with the tuition going up on my next renewal has me a bit disgruntled. Should I maybe go check out the Gracie school? And what should I expect as far as dues go?
