    I am looking to start BJJ in Charleston, WV and wanted some advice.

    Would you suggest I pay $90 and have the ability to take Judo/Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, and Tae Kwon Do on a weekly basis at:

    USA Martial Arts Federation

    or

    should I train strictly BJJ Tues, Thurs, and sometimes Sundays for $55 at:

    Advanced Boxing, Kickboxing, & Jiu-Jitsu - Where REAL Champions Are Made!!!


    Any advice would be appreciated. If anyone knows either school or has some tips. I basically want to learn BJJ so I can get fit and enter tournaments (after I get experience - in multiple months/years), but would the Judo and Aikido help me in said tournaments? Worth the extra money?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's tough to tell just from a website, but that first one with the Judo/Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, and Tae Kwon Do looks like some serious bullshit.

    Actually after seeing this picture, I can now assure you from just the website alone that you do not want to be training martial arts at this place.

    Try Advanced BKJ. I heard they had a respectable program. Never heard of the other guys, and that's the one of the worst armbars that I've ever seen.

    I've been leaning towards ABJK, they seem less like a McDojo.
