Wow, quite the list... And you can remember details about each of those acadamies? Your a regular BJJ directory.
Fuck me!
I've trained at like 3 clubs in 3 years of BJJ. One of them was only a one off.
Damn, Charles you get around!

I only been to one jj place, Relson Gracie Main Academy - Honolulu, Hawaii but plan on a lot more in Europe.
i will probably be at a lot more places next year while traveling.
i will update my list as it happens. i talked to phil while in austin, he is coming out to the hawaii acadamy soon, watch out for the triangles. he is the master of them.
KillaC -- Read my question and guardpasser's answer above.
if we get something in florida i will be sure to go there
which school in north carolina was the best? how about dc area and virginia? I may be moving in a year and a half or so.
The fact that Praxis Gym isn't on there makes me want to kick you in the balls.
Hey Guardpasser, do you know about any good places to train in Kansas? I want to do some MMA/Thai/BJJ. Any suggestions?

good list blake
my wife is the hold up in getting over there with you guys.
it will happen when we get a job over there, we are bidding some in cherokee county, i will make the drive if we get them.
Guardpasser, what belt do you hold? You're experience to say the least.
4 stripe blue, i dont get a lot of training due to traveling, i have ben the same level for two years.
i do get to visit a lot of places, so it keeps the interest up.

Ok Charles, thanks for the warning. I got to make sure and ask Relson which escape works better for his triangle. Only two I know of that works with awesome triangle guys.
ttt for my updated list.

With this new job I have, my training list is going to expand. Before summer, I already have plans to visit Matt Serra, ATT, Jorge Gurgel, and Cobra Kai.

Anyone else have any ideas of good academies?
