Long time lurker, so please excuse the newb title :redface: Just a quick chirp about myself, I'm a blue belt and have been training bjj for 3+ years under a Marcus Soares blackbelt. I was wondering if anyone heard of what "Morganti Ju Jitsu" was?? A friend of mine has been training "Morganti Ju Jitsu" for a while now. I've actually had a chance to visit his school to train with them but I found their instruction to be a bit odd at times... It seemed like Morganti was a mix of stand up fighting + ground submissions. There would be striking while standing, but once it hit the ground you were not allowed to strike and only grapple. No one trained with gloves or shin guards. You were not allowed to punch to the face, but you could kick to the face :icon_neut Their belt rankings were totally different from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. You can check out the order of colors they go by HERE. I was kind of confused when I walked in to see some students wearing a Red Belt... b/c in BJJ a Red Belt was the highest belt achievable... Another thing I found odd was that I was told not to wear anything to the gym with the Gracie name on it??? I was told that the "Sensei" had "beef" with the Gracies... whatever that meant I'm not sure... It felt pretty sportjj-esque... Anyone have any experience? Or could shine some light as to where Morganti came from? Anything that I tried to Google was in a foreign language..
