Guy Spends $1000 On Gordon Ryan’s Instructionals – Was It Worth It?

Guy Spends $1000 On Gordon Ryan’s Instructionals – Was It Worth It?

If you’re after faster progress in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, then watching instructionals is one of the best things you can do! Of course, just merely watching won’t be enough; you have to try the techniques out and troubleshoot things that don’t work. Trial and error: that’s the name of the game.
However, it goes without saying that BJJ instructionals can be quite expensive. For example, Joshua Richards paid a total of 1000$ for Gordon Ryan‘s instructional videos… But was it worth it?

 

PAYING 1000$ FOR GORDON RYAN’S INSTRUCTIONALS

For the most part, Joshua says that yes – Ryan’s instructionals have been worth the money. He has been able to use a lot of the things he’d seen on the instructional videos; for instance, Gordon’s signature Shoulder Crunch Sweep technique. As well as his guard retention tips.
The only thing he had against the instructionals was against one of the first ones that were issued – a lack of organization. But even that, in Joshua’s words, wanes in comparison to everything else shown in the series.

Bear in mind that, all in all, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructional videos and series will be worth your money only if you put in the effort to try and learn the stuff that’s shown in them.
Yes, seeing a mind-blowing detail or a novel technique might inspire you to use it in a roll or two… But if you want to make it a part of your game, then you will¬†have to drill it. And probably drill it a lot.
