    I am on vacation and stopped by for their 6pm class. Very good group they have over there, very cordial and welcoming. I was in whatever class is blue belts and up. If I lived in the area I would sign up in a heartbeat. Highly recommended if you are in the San Diego area.

    50 fee, 25 if you do a yelp review. Mat was loaded, 55 is a good guess. Not sure how much they want people to divulge but I will tell you they roll 6 min rounds, and 8 rounds. You will leave tired and you will have the opportunity to roll with guys who have placed and or won national awards in gi and no gi. K Cornelius was there, Galvau was there also.

    Well it is not a joke.

    It is the truth.

    Behind all the facade of Christians religous mentality, the mendes business opened shop right across a shared car park with an already established Bjj gym.

    Just out of curiosity, what Christian religious mentality is that going against exactly?

    I'm 47, 3 stripe blue belt from the South Carolina. I did ok, I tapped every white belt I rolled with, tapped 1 blue, got tapped 3 times, 2 blue belts and one of their black belts. Near the end I was stalling because I was tired and their guys seem very conditioned. If I lived there I would join in a heartbeat. There were plenty of guys I didn't get to roll with who would ball me up in a hury. They have a beginners class and they let you sit out if you need to. It was in no way intemidating, even for a guy in his 40's. Btw, the oldest guy I rolled with may have been 28 max. I was amazed at how many of their students moved to that area just to train at ATOS. I met students from Brazil, Montana, Texas, Guam, Arizona, SC, ETC.
