I went to his website and it seems that he knows the secrets to become the next Marcelo or at least kick serious arse at most competitions. Does anyone actually go to his gym or has read his books etc post on this board. If so I would really appreciate it if you could give an insight to what Lloyd Irvins philosophy (secrets) to becoming a better grappler. I would prefer it if people didn't post derogatory stuff about him, I would rather just have a civilised debate about what he is teaching and if it is actually usefull. If his star pupils are so good because of his secrets or because they just ate/breathed/lived bjj for a number of years. Do other people on this board think that his star students are one trick ponies developed specifically for competition or do they have a well rounded game.
