Private Lessons and their value
I have been studying BJJ in South Florida for 7 years off and on (mostly on) and I am now a blue belt. I began my training with American Top Team and I now train at the Miami Gracie Academy.
I have the opportunity now to take private lessons from a Gracie brown belt who trained at The Gracie Academy in L.A. and recieved all of his belts (from white to brown) from Helio & Rorion Gracie.
Are private lessons worth it? What can I expect to gain from them as opposed to just training 3 to 4 days a week in group classes? Will it allow me to progress to purple faster, to improve my tecnique, etc.? Naturally I want to be the best I can be at BJJ. Is this the right path to take?
I'd appreciate any advise and suggestions from anyone.
P.S. It would be one private a week (four a month) in addition to training in group classes 3 to 4 days a week.
