Hello everyone. I was hoping someone can give some insight on training BJJ in the Chicagoland area. I am a total beginner but have been in love with the art since watching Royce a decade ago. I am currently training with a BJJ black belt in Chicago but unfortunately his class doesn't seem to be structured. The only thing I have truely learned in a few months is a few chokes from the mount and a few sweeps. I am wondering if I will ever learn anything that applicable in a street situation. I doubt that I could escape a headlock or a bear huhg at this point...which makes it pretty sad since I am dishing out a good chunck of change for BJJ. Anyhow, my question is this. ARE BJJ CLASSES GENERALLY NOT STRUCTURED? AM I LEARNING SPORT JIU JITSU? CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND AN ACADEMY IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA WHO'S INSTRUCTOR(S) AREN'T IMPATIENT, KNOWELDGEABLE AND TEACH PRACTICAL JIU JITSU FOR SELF DEFENSE?
