    He seems to have bought into the whole "Yoda of BJJ" persona that has been placed on him.

    I respect his knowledge, but not the way he communicates. It's pretentious, condescending, and unnecessarily complex.

    It's possible that he's just playing a character now.

    Internet fanboys are creating these eccentric gurus. I blame Joe Rogan. He's become the Oprah of potheads, and assorted rejects.

    He's extremely intelligent and eloquent. Interesting that you're unable to listen to him.

    Might be good to get some details before you pass such harsh judgement.

    WTF. Do you perhaps have, I don't know, an opinion on his knowledge and/or the subject matter? Did you come on here thinking it was a public-speaking forum?

    John Danaher is a treasure trove of BJJ knowledge. Not only is the eponymous founder of the Danaher Death Squad himself a Renzo Gracie black belt, but he holds a masters degree in philosophy, which he frequently uses to analyze the Gracie art.

    Has he actually ever competed, or does he just spout theory?

    I would be able to form an opinion if I could actually hear him talk. Honestly, he needs to talk louder is he's going to be doing audio stuff like podcasts etc.

    Or it's possible that he's spent decades in a position of authority-- as university teacher, a bouncer, or a BJJ teacher--and he's simply accustomed to the hierarchy of teacher/student relationships and has molded his speech based off of those experiences.

    Regardless, if you're unwilling to learn from someone simply because you dislike the way that they speak, then you're only depriving yourself.

    Definitely making my groomsmen do it.

    Na I'd get like 5-6 guys on him at once. Overwhelm him. Try leg locking 6 guys at once Danaher, ya fuck.
    Well that's acceptable. If someone at the reception needs to be thrown in a GoGo you'd be my guy.

    Hmm. The mans grappling iq is impressive, but wearing the rashguard everywhere is weird.

    Imagine Floyd showing up to a wedding in his gloves...

    He's very respectful and modest by all accounts. The 'yoda of BJJ' comes from other, many high level, BJJ practitioners. I've never heard John actually brag about himself - he always puts praise on his students. In other words what you're saying couldn't be more wrong.
