Know your club. BJJ isnt like other martial arts

"it is very important that you figure out what the culture of your club is, especially if you’re just starting to train Brazilian jiu-jitsu, OR if you’re switching from one BJJ club to another, OR if you’re coming from a traditional martial art."

This is so true. I was amazedand a little bit worried about the lack of dicipline and the slack at the club I started to train at.

No "yes sir", no hierarchy. No rules for entering the gym, the mat or for when leaving the gym.

But hey, I figured it out now. Its Brazilian jjiu jitsu. Its laid back. Its focused on having fun. Its focused on beeing effective.

Its great actually
