Hi Reddit.

Im a black belt under Roger Gracie and have competed on ADCC, EBI, Polaris and Quintet.

I put a big emphasis on strength and conditioning, some of which some people may call unconventional.
I host a podcast. Run a tournament organisation and have been teaching BJJ for 10 years.

Go for it.

Almost all websites I’ve visited don’t state their prices on their site. So do I call for pricing or do they have you come in for consultation? Is there a reason they’re not upfront about prices? And does anyone know the average cost for a Gracie (Humaita) Gym in a middle class neighbourhood?

For me it was that everyone’s strategy works good enough, the problem is getting a strategy that works on your opponent. This made me embrace weird things such as being super flexible and try to utilize that in my game plan because my opponent has never prepared for it, and therefore I can employ it more efficiently than conventional things.

I've heard this statement around the school I train at. There seems to be a culture of "there's really no need to train no-gi, just train in the gi because all the best no-gi competitors are also the best gi competitors and they only train in the gi.". In the past I feel like this might have been true with most competitions following IBFFJ rule sets and the most prestigious competitions being IBJJF. But, with the rise in popularity of Sub-Only no-gi competitions I feel like this sentiment is no longer true today.

It seems to me that no-gi and gi are starting to become very different games and the training for each is becoming more specific. Given that you see guys training no-gi only and focusing on sub-only style no-gi tournaments. Do you think that the best Gi competitors are still the best no-gi competitors or has the styles changed so much that you must focus your training on whatever style you wish to become the best in the world at.
