    Hey everyone,

    I recently am contemplating on moving to another state/city, and one of the determining factors on where I'll be living is whether or not it has a great school to train in. Important factors include price, respectable instructor, frequency of training sessions, etc.

    So what do you guys think is the best place to train BJJ in the United States?

    I guess it kind of depends on which factors are most important. I'm sure there are plenty of really good instructors scattered across the country and your cheapest bet (since you mentioned price as a factor) is probably one of them. On the other hand if you move to one of the hot beds of BJJ in the US like southern California then you have the advantage of their being lots of tournaments and quality opponents, and you can be more assured of finding a school that is a good fit for you.
