I'm not sure how a beginner can judge that. As I said, conflating BJJ and MMA. An 'interesting' idea. Not sure why he wants to know Gweilo's age lol. Not everyone wants to do a stand up style, there's no reason to if they don't want to. However when one goes through a great number of coaches for what the beginner perceives is a waste of time ie doing basics, one questions who is actually to blame here for the lack of learning.
