BUT it's extremely important to get the technique down. That can only be taught by a certified instructor with proper credentials. Tons of Black Belts out there, but ya should dig into their backgrounds. Reason I say this, it sounds like you want to take your kids far in this sport being a competitive athlete yourself. You can't stick em in a Karate gym that changed into an MMA gym. Any Gracies, Machado, 10th planet, Drysdale, Marcello Garcia affiliates, or any top camp will have a BJJ program to fast track your kids from the ground up. There's no coincidence that any fighter from those camps are top notch when it comes to the art of Brazillian Jiu Jitsu.

Basically if I had my choice I would pay any amount to train under Rickson Gracie followed by the original Royce. I've checked out a Marcello Garcia seminar, but that's later on for your kids. Great to see you're such a supportive father!

Thanks for the input.. and when he's old enough, I will do whatever I have to do to get him to where ever he wants to go.. At this point, I'm just happy he likes going to class. I always tell him that it doesn't matter if he wins or loses.. It matters that he tries. From wrestling I know that a dad pushing for a win at whatever cost it takes really messes the kid up in the long run. I tell him with anything he does... video games, playing w/ his friends, something new.. The more you lose, the more you win.. I guess I learned a little from what my dad did w/ me.. lol. Anyway, thanks again.. I plan on getting some private lessons.. Just talked to the wife. ha.. Thanks for the help everyone..
