Yeah, his backround's like I'd figured it would be: lots of competition in Jiu-jitsu, none in MMA or anything else.
The idea is to learn the fundamentals and the tricks that make individual technique important. A guy like Adiv might not teach you how BJJ fits into MMA, but most people can figure it out for themselves.
I do agree, though, that you should find somewhere that focuses on MMA grappling. Look for somewhere were the teacher also has a judo backround or a kempo backround (not all grappling, but equally as important). That way he/she can show you how it all fits together.
