BJJ in Stillwater, OK

I am about to move to Stillwater, OK in the fall to attend Oklahoma State University. I was wondering if anyone knew if there are any good BJJ places in the surrounding area and if so where they are located.

Thanks!

Not alot in the general area...

Elite Combat Systems -* Self Defense, MMA, Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu is all I see...the instructors tab is the only one not active however...strange. I do see that they are Leonardo Xavier affiliates...LX is legit.

YOu might want to find out who is teaching the bjj class there however.

Lx is legit. He taught classes at Gracie Humaita. He was a solid competitor. In saying that. The school in Stillwater is ran by a blue belt that joined the lx association I believe around 6 months ago and that is about when the guy got his blue belt. If you just want somewhere to train this place could be a good place but do not expect to learn good solid Bjj from the school in Stillwater.

Good insights. I know Ty Gay, LX Brown Belt, is like an hour away near OKC. I wonder if he comes by? Or it is always just a blue?

Either way, I would say JiuJitsu_Greg is spot on. It might be a good place to acquire basics while you are in school. Osu is full of great wrestlers, start asking around once you get in school you might find some guys to train with.

Ty gay is located in Edmond Oklahoma. He is a 4 stripe brown belt. He has received all of his rank from Leonardo Xavier but is no longer a part of the lx association. I believe he is currently trying to start a Gracie academy association. I know that another lx brown belt Blake Hayes (Tulsa) is supposed to look out and help out the Stillwater school but in what capacity I don't know. Good luck at osu!

Thanks! And I have heard good things about the school you are referring to in Edmond and actually have a friend who is planning on starting training there. However I don't think I'm going to be able to make that far of a drive all the time. I'll probably just check out the school in Stillwater and go from there.

Not sure if you can make it to Tulsa but there are a number of good BJJ schools in town. Can't go wrong with Triton, Nogs, or LX. All of these schools have classes taught by Brown Belts.

Wow. Ty has been with him for a good while so that is a bit of a surprise.

There is an active BJJ Group/Club at OSU. Drop Hunter Harris an e-mail.

hunter.harris@okstate.edu

Hunter received his Blue Belt from Luiz Palhares a couple of years ago is an all around good guy.

Peace,
