Hey guys! Well, I am moving to Fabio (Santos) Jiu Jitsu after the new year and have a good friend of mine that wanted to move over to Fabio's with me. Anywhos, he lives in North country and isn't attracted to the long commute. Well he happens across northcountybjj.com and Sam Kressin. I've seen the man compete before and hes a good grappler, I've seen better but that doesn't mean hes not a good trainer, however I know nothing about teh calabur of his instruction. I want my friend to start grappling so when we hang out on weekends we can roll and he can come with me to competitions (to compete or not, not really concerned). Other than having seen Sam Kressin go at it in competition, I really know nothing about the guy. Has anyone had any experience with him? Know him or currently train with him? Apparently he does no-gi and bjj training with a slight focus on MMA (there is no muay thai or boxing instruction, Sam says its all BJJ and Wrestling but they do striking mixed in with it but its not a main focus of his instruction). I just want to know if this is a good place for my buddy who has very little training (he did HS wrestling and a few months of Kempo with me several years back, before he left for japan with the military). Should I give Sam Kressin the thumbs up for my friend?
