    i leave for a month in Shanghai on Saturday, i plan on training at at SHBJJ - (LINK) as much as possible while i am there....

    i know that several members of this forum either have or do train at the academy and was wondering which classes are the best ones to attend? I have a few family things happeining while i am there too so i want to work my schedule around enough to get in some good sessions....

    I am a fairly experienced blue belt and compete regularly if that helps

    Hey man, 欢迎你到上海!

    I am glad to hear that you'll be coming to train with us. The website you linked has an up-to-date class schedule and, if you're looking to train hard, I would suggest you train on Thursday nights and Saturday afternoons. Bruno is a great instructor (http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f12/bruno-moreira-gordo-cabecao-new-blackbelt-shanghai-bjj-1314719/) and very hands-on, but has been running "competition classes" on those days. They start with a solid hour of brutal conditioning, followed by technique instruction and then open mat. Those are preceded by the beginner classes if you would like to do some review.

    I popped my rib Saturday and might be taking it easy the next week/two until it heals, but I'm very happy to hear about you coming through. Look forward to meeting you man.

    p.s., Sorry to say that (to my knowledge) the chick's a model and not a student. We do have some other girls that train with us though, including a couple cute Chinese girls.

    Apparently my photography skills have gotten to the point where it's being copied and ripped off. That means I'm gettin' good! :icon_chee

    Isn't that Mark Chambaud (sp)? He trained at Shanghai BJJ didn't he? Is his group affiliated with Shanghai BJJ now? I have no idea. I haven't had a chance to train with Mark personally, but one of the guys in my MMA class cross trains at his place from time to time and only has good things to say about him.

    Yeah, from the about page it looks like he is still a teacher and student at SHBJJ. I do not know him personally though.

    I will be back in Shanghai in December after more than 5 years look forward to train at my old club!

    Not regularly, and not too often. I stop by on Fridays sometimes for sparring- always a good experience. But I'm pretty busy this year running classes at my new gym in the evenings and commuting to Feng Xian in the mornings, plus I've got a new baby on top of that, so I haven't been back in a while.
