    We can go on forever. Your experience is yours and mine is mine. We take and learn from our experiences and interpret them how we see it. We have differing views that's it. I'm sure it's not the first time and certainly won't be the last.
    I’m a little skeptical that there are tons and tons of places where kids today are learning nothing but worm guard, but ultimately I appreciate Leonard Cohen level expressions of world-weary disdain.
    I need you to work in something about Millennials. Bonus points for mentioning Supernatural Survival Gear in a seemingly natural way.

    So as a new, and older BJJ white belt, it looks to me like we are all training smarter, and more sustainably. The video looks more like what I'd consider reasonable for an audit of your abilities, similar to ECQC evos, but maybe a little too "boxing-gym-meat grinder" for daily training if I'm being honest. So far in my fundamentals and intermediate classes everything has been applicable to self defense and no one has mentioned points once. Cecil's post above was actually my first introduction to the competition points system.

    But I completely agree, the majority of people I train with WOULD be willing to train like that.

    We in the BJJ world, in general, are SOOOOOO much smarter about how to train. While I am extremely happy that I went through that kind of training shown in the video throughout the 90's and into the early 2000's, I don' think it should be done that way normally - i.e. every class, every day for two hour sessions at a time.

    You are totally spot on about about where it fits and comparing it to ECQC. We should do ECQC type evo level training about once a month for no more than an hour at a maximum, and maybe twice a year do the full blown thing for a weekend. More than that, unless you are a young meat eater who has no outside responsibilities and can train 5-8 hours a day everyday, will kill you.
