Ok. Some time ago i had to leave my mma gym for personal reasons. Now i only had months boxing and then 6months mma at the time i left. I remember one of the major isssues i had with the bjj class was i was nearly totally lost. Sure i picked up the and repped the basics of guard passing and mount control and switching postitions and what not but it seamed that learning new techniques was so haphazard so random.. For the last few months i have been in a local mma gym and he only had me working on basics. Sadly he decided that he was going to cancel the adult class and focus on the children's class. So i have found a good bjj school in my are and am going to attend. My question is, with the semi random nature of sport BJJ training how the hell do i keep it straight? So damned random. I actually liked the GJJ curriculum of the Gracie academy that is near me, it has a progression from one to the next. Problem is they are massively more expensive then the local sporting bjj place. So when i do start at this bjj place what tips do you guys have to keep me from getting lost again.. My goal is still one armature cage fight before im to old. Why is it that so many bjj schools have such a random teaching style. Why do so many lack a decent ascending curriculum? Case in point. I remember when i started mma, i remember it was i think the third or forth class after the basics was done, the first real technique i was shown was the gift wrap... Kinda above a 1 weeks rollers pay grade... I appreciate the help.
