From Roberta Cruz and Dean Toews of ribeirobjjlangley
1- you cannot buy a Ferrari for a cheap price.
2- maintenance and insurance on a Ferrari are not the same cost as Say a Chevy/Ford. On some level Jiu Jitsu is the same…
1- Do not expect to pay a super low price for training at a good school to learn Jiu Jitsu.
2- A good Sensei spends many years of their life learning, spending money and time, shedding blood, sweat and tears to gain the knowledge necessary to become a good instructor/knowledgeable black belt. (One must do their homework on this subject before just signing up).
3- Good schools are generally guided by a good association. This allows for you instructors continual learning as well as your growth as a student. You want to be confident with the belt that has been put around your waist!
4 – ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE WHETHER YOU WANT TO DRIVE THE FERRARI OR DRIVE THE CHEVY!!!!!
Do your homework, pick the right school that feels good and allows for you to learn in a safe , comfortable environment. Although both schools say they teach Jiu Jitsu, there are differences in quality/attention to details just like the handmade Ferrari VS the conventional Chevy.
