BJJ Poll: Do You Prefer That Your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor is Brazilian?

This Saturday’s installment of our weekly BJJ Poll was just something that occurred to me the other day when I got a call from someone asking me about Brazilian jiu-jitsu schools in San Diego. This person wanted to get their boyfriend a gift certificate to enroll in a BJJ school and we were talking about some of the things that would help her decide a good place to send her boyfriend. It made me wonder about all the factors that affect someone’s decision to train jiu-jitsu in a certain school. Things that might influence your decision about a jiu-jitsu school are its proximity to your house (or in this particular case, the guy’s surf spot), the belt level of the instructor, the vibe of the academy, and so on… Then I realized that to some people, it might make sense to choose one school over another because the instructor is Brazilian.

What about you? Do you think that it is important? Be honest! Let us know by voting in the poll above, and definitely leave a comment below!
