Oftentimes Brazilian jiu-jitsu students will arrange to take a one-on-one private class with a BJJ instructor (usually a black belt). This allows the student to have some specific questions answered and get some special attention they may otherwise not be able to get during a group class. It benefits the instructor of course, as they can earn a healthy hourly fee to supplement their income.
Back in July of last year, we learned that a minority of Brazilian jiu-jitsu students take privates. According to our poll, only 39% of BJJ students take privates. This week our poll hopes to learn why that number is not higher.
