Professor Elliott Bayev showed me his Intro To BJJ Course and BJJ101 blue belt curriculum I was blown away. It was exactly what I had been trying to achieve for so long. The level of detail along with the clear-cut guidance through the belt system is, in my opinion, above anything that I have ever seen in my twenty years in Jiu-Jitsu.

We implemented the Blue Belt Curriculum as our school’s curriculum in September 2019 and the feedback has been amazing and for me as an instructor, it has solved one of the biggest challenges I’ve had.

I like the Blue belt curriculum very much. It has allowed me to see connections where before I was stuck.

I’ve done jujitsu for many years and have trained at many different schools around the world. I have to say without a doubt that Coach Bayev and his other coaches are second to none.

Elliott is one of the most skilful and thoughtful teachers of jiu-jitsu that I’ve ever met. Not only is his knowledge of the art encyclopedic but he’s able to convey difficult concepts and techniques in a conceptual way that makes learning fun and easy. I highly recommend training with him.
