    The fact that Praxis Gym isn't on there makes me want to kick you in the balls.

    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?
