Hey, i'm currently looking at bjj schools in my area and i was wondering what belt level does an instructor have to be at so that the training will be of a reasonably high standard? I suppose it depends on the individual instructor but surely a certain level of skill and time studying bjj is required before instructing lessons. What level are most instructors? At the school closest to me classes have recently started at a multi purpose ma school. The instructor is a purple belt and seems like a decent enough guy and is affiliated with Jorge Gurgel. Another bjj school which is abit further away only trains bjj and was trained by Bjorn Friedrich and Roy Harris( not sure who either are ) he has studied escrima and wing chun from the web site it seems that all he does is train. What ma school would be more likely to offer good training Any advise or comments appreciated thanks.
