So our little team has been rolling along nicely in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario.  We're the only team in the area with legit coaches.  We have several national medalist wrestlers, do a ot of our boxing at a club that recently had a national champ and our jiu jitsu intructor is a three stripe purple belt under the legendary Yuki Nakai.  I know there are lots of higher ranking jiu jitsu guys in Ontario but in our area this guy is far and away the best ad most legit.

All of a sudden another martial arts club in town is advertising "Train in Gracie Jiu Jitsu"  "earn your belts under the best instructors in the world" etc. etc. bla bla bla.

These guys have purchased the Gracie online training program.  There is not a single one of them that has any background in ANY type of grappling art whatsoever.  The owner of the club is a yellow belt in Kung Fu  (yeah, fucking KUNG FU!) with no other martial arts background. We have worked our assess off to get decent at jiu jitsu and build our grappling program the right way.  We compete regularly to test ourselves and identify weaknesses.  The sad part is that the average newbie won't be able to see the difference in the two programs and will get sucked in by the Gracie name.

What say you… dojo storm?

frustrated and venting.

Dont worry… once a couple customers go through there and realize they're a bunch of hacks then the word will spread and they'll be gone.

"These guys have purchased the Gracie online training program."

 

What the hell is that? Gracie is synonymous with top notch bjj. Please tell me this isn't a real thing that they endorse.

 What gym do you train at btw…
