Gracie University – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Online

Did you know you can get up to a brown belt in Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu online?  I didn’t until today.  At GracieUniversity.com you watch videos of everything you need to learn.  You video tape your self doing the techniques with some one and mail it in.  What a revolutionary idea.  My questions are, what kind of quality of brown belt will you get in the end?  Does it really substitute for in person training?  I like the chat room that is enabled with each video clip so that you can chat with others about what you are working on.  It also has a online instructor to ask questions about what you are working on.  These are both great ideas.  I wonder if they would accept your submission or test video if you don’t have anyone to work with and only use a grappling dummy?

Please let me know your experience with Gracie University.  I would especially like to hear from some one who has tested for a belt through this system.
