I would like an honest opinion from the experienced grapplers in this forum. I an new to any form of martial arts training, but I have decided to learn brazilian jiu-jitsu.
If budget was not a concern to you would you recommend private lessons over group lessons? I have heard pros and cons for both, and would like some experienced opinions here.
My goals for training are not to get a higher belt. Many of the people I speak to just want a new color belt (with new belt comes more respect), I am interested in self-defense not the color of my belt.
I can afford private lessons a few time per week with a world-class instructor (received his belt from Rolls Gracie), what are your opinions?
Thank you all for the help.
