    Im going to be in Manchester UK and then all over europe to party, train and meet some cool people. If anyone knows of good schools to gear my trip around (its pretty broad as of now, I have a eurail pass+flight but thats about it) please let me know. I dont want my bjj to suffer while im away for 2 months.

    thanks,

    Mike

    Oh crap yea - I knew that was there too (although I have no experience training in Manchester to know which is better)

    Since everyone is throwing websites around i'll point you in the direction of www.masterbjj.co.uk - I train at one of these so if you're in an area that has one i'd suggest you check it out.

    Yeah ive heard great things about SBGi. ARIS I was thinking about coming through Greece but the ferry only runs from Brindisi, Italy to Corfu in the summer months. So no greece for me unless there is a very cheap way to get from italy over there.

    Thanks for the club in Paris mogway, I expect to be through there at least once. Last time I was there it was amazing.

    Is there bjj in Portugal or Spain that anyone recomends?

    Thanks guys

    Somehow being a crazy ManUtd fan, I think merseyside may be the last place I want to go. But thanks for the link.

    Assuming you don't wear a Man U shirt you should be fine.

    Just in case you happen to travel south of Manchester, Braulio Estima teaches at Gracie Barra Birmingham (and I think he's over in Milton Keynes, too) and in London, Roger Gracie teaches.
