I am sure this thread has been made before but just in case... So I was wondering what your guys thoughts' were on the cost of some seminars. I took one recently from a BJJ bb from France and he came over as a favor to my instructor and so we could all come, he only charge us 20$ for like 3 hours and also if we wanted to we could go to two other ones he was doing during that week for free. And at each one he showed different techniques. I have also been to one when i first started bjj about 4 years ago that was my instructor's instructor and I remember the price being like 200$ or more. To me I felt like we had to go to support our instructor's instructor but the price was crazy. Your thoughts? Also my instructor made a good point about how we get a lot of seminars at our school from top level guys, and recently had a certain well known UFC fighter come and he was just mentioning how it's ridiculous for us to spend so much on seminars where were shown unpractical techniques that well never really be able to use. BTW - i have a video i made of one of the seminars that I put up on utube if anyone wants that link. it's nothing new in BJJ, and my video editing sucks but its worth checking out for white/blue belts that want to see some simple yet effective techniques.
