Sounds good to me. I train on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but after your group is done belt testing, Friday may be possible, and weekends after this one. I am going to help with Krav instructor training and testing this weekend. I will be in touch....you can count on that.

Last night when talking with my Instructor I learned some background on David Meyer. It seems he used to run his own Jujitsu school in the past. One of his students on the side went to a Gracie school and when he came back after a few months David found it more difficult to roll with this student. Then another Gracie student asked if David would roll with him and after an hour of great difficulty he asked the Gracie student how long he had been training and was told a year. This stunned David and eventually David closed up his school and went to a Machado school leaving his black belt behind and taking on a white belt to learn BJJ. Now today he is an exception BJJ black belt.

I just thought I'd pass that on to you.

That's interesting Dereck, I didn't know that. I did know that Mr. Meyer had a black belt in "small circle?" jiu jitsu under professor Wally Jay before he began training BJJ under the Machados. That's pretty impressive that he put on a white belt and trained BJJ until he earned his black belt, but then he's a pretty impressive guy all around!

Matt ...

I just wanted to post that I have gone through David Meyer's DVD on arm bars and it is awesome. He and his partner John Will show about 30 different arm bars from the top, bottom, side or when your opponent is in a turtle. I have already successfully tried a few of these in class last Thursday and they worked excellent, even enough for my Instructor to take notice that I had picked them up so fast.

So if you get a chance to view this do so, you won't be disappointed.



Hey guy's, Sorry to come into this thread so late. I'm a Brown Belt under John Will and also Dave Meyers Web guy. Just wanted to let you all know that we've upgraded Daves www.grappling.us site and added the "Mastering Armbars" DVD with the overhaul.

I'm really pleased that so many of you had such a good time. Dave and John are amazing instructors and the Curriculum is a piece of gold. I don't even live in the same country as John or Dave so I needed those tapes to help my progress.

Nothing beats good training partners but with the DVD's that John and Dave have put together it's a huge help. Just following what they say can set you on the right track..

I really enjoyed reading all of your comments and posts and I'll try and direct David to the forum to have a read, he'll be chuffed! Keep up the good work and enjoy the grappling.

Geoff

Thanks for the updated link. If you will look on this part they have our school listed ... Elite Taekwondo, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and are currently listed as Level 2.

http://www.grappling.us/schools.htm

This is not exactly my school as we are in Fort Saskatchewan, AB (15 minutes away) but we are Elite and are grouped together as one entity as this is mainly where BJJ and our training was for the seminar plus where Sean (my Instructor) and Steve (Edmonton Instructor) train together. Sean and Steve are best friends and partners plus Steve was one of Sean's Instructors when training under Master Sung Lee. They train extensively together on these techniques as well as JJJ/Hapkido/Taekwondo. Good sounding boards for each other to perfect techniques and teaching.

Thanks again.

David Meyer came up again to Edmonton where our clubs got together and went over working from the top for the first 1.5 hours and some techniques and then working from the bottom for 1.5 hours. Some basics with a few twists that I will find very useful, but always good see him. Will post further photos once available.
