Im a belt below black in another art and decided to try jujitsu because i felt the syllabus we follow in the other class was biased towards kicking, although this is complemented by good boxing skill work and the odd show of locking techniques. Is it normal for the instructor to show around 6 or 7 techniques or was he trying to impress. Don't get me wrong i loved the class to the point i felt sick at how easy it was to apply pain to the joints with little effort.Ultimately i wish to gain my black belt in the other style,but continue jujitsu to help in more grapple type situations. PS does the shock/pain of joints getting hyperextended get bearable as you go.
