Hello everybody, I'm an MMA and Bjj enthusiast who would love to have a chance to learn, practice, and possibly compete in brazilian ju-jitsu; but the sad truth of the matter is that there simply aren't any proper Bjj schools anywhere close to where I live. I've been looking on and off for over two years and the best I could find was some instructor of some other martial art (whing chun) who attended a few BJJ seminars and was willing to show me the basics, but the lack of teacher's knowledge and experience, training partners, and long time goals eventually left me no choice but to abandon my quest and look for some other sport. After the summer break, another athletic year is about to start again and again my search has been in vain and my hopes have been frustrated. Moving to another place solely to learn ju jitsu is out of the question at this particular time. So, fellow Bjj lovers (or should I say you lucky bastards who get a chance to actually train it), it seems my last option is self-teaching through instructional tapes/books, assuming I can find one or two friends willing to take part in such madness Do you think it's even worth the time and effort to try and learn Bjj exclusively from books/tapes, with probably very limited rolling partners selection? (who knows, maybe I could start a phenomenon!). And if yes, what resources would you reccomend? Thanks for your time and replies!
