In towns where there are more than one Brazilian jiu-jitsu academy, consumers have a choice to make. Assuming things like price and distance is not an issue, I was wondering what’s more important to the average BJJ person: the skill level of their instructor or how well they get along with their instructor. Sometimes you find a school lead by someone who is really great at BJJ, but maybe they’re not run by someone whose personality you really enjoy. Other times the opposite may be true: the instructor is not top of the line when it comes to technique or maybe instruction, but you get along really well with him or her. Which do you pick?
