Brazilian JuJitsu is a very individual sport. No two people perform every move the same. Therefore, the requirements for a rank are not the same for everyone. Student A could learn 4 certain sweeps and sweep everyone. Student B could learn 4 different sweeps and use those 4 different sweeps to enjoy the same success as student A. That is where a great teacher comes in. Robson is a master instructor. He can look at your game and modify everything to fit you, your body, and ability. He then evaluates your performance base on you! Not what other people are doing. So is there a curriculum for Jiu Jitsu? No, not in the traditional sense. There are requirements and performance goals, but there is no way to show you a piece of paper and say this is what you need to know for each rank.

Jiu Jitsu is a very unique martial art. Robson believes the best way to learn is one on one. Getting stuck in class with only 15 minutes of learning a day does not support fast learning. Sometimes your partners can not give you the correct defense. You learn something in class and only find that when you use it against someone else your success was short lived. That is why he wants to be your partner. Each time you drill a position he will not let you make a mistake. Your learning starts with Robson as your partner and you begin to develop skills that will last forever. Do you have a position that gives you trouble such as escaping side control or defending the guard pass? This is where private lessons can take years off your training. Drill guard defenses with the best in the world. Robson becomes your dedicated training partner – Now that is how you get good fast!
