    Got to train at alliance over Xmas, with Cobrinha! Definatley a great experiece.

    Depending on where you live there are a couple choices. There is Alliance, Gracie Barra, and I think Roberto Traven has a school out there.

    Dont live there but visit the are a couple times a year

    There are several different schools in Atlanta. You have Alliance, Tiger Academy, Triple Boxing, All of the knuckle up schools, Atlanta Martial arts academy. There are several more but those are the only ones that come to mind straight away.

    Casca Grossa is on March 22nd, and naga in early may.

    To the TS, I go to Tiger Academy and could not be happier with my training. As previously mentioned, there is Alliance , Triple Boxing, and Knuckle Up (the Gracie Barra here).

    Man, you're lucky, Alliance has a great school out there. Jacare and Cobrinha and Chris Moriarty.

    And it looks like Lakeside has at least one dominant team:

    It's been a while since I've been in high school (8 years), but I think there are at least a few cool people at every high school. And if you pretend like you grew up in a City of God-style favela, you will certainly be the coolest kid in school in no time; suburban American kids eat that stuff up.

    From Atlanta Journal Constitution article in early Feb 08: "In 2004, the U.S. Census Bureau pegged Georgia's Brazilian population, mostly in Cobb, Gwinnett, Fulton and DeKalb counties, at 21,500 people, a figure considered low by many in the expatriate community."

    From what I've seen, there is a significant Brazilian population in Atlanta - a number of stores with Brazilian flags are scattered across the metro area. Brazil is also opening a consulate here in Atlanta.

    Another place to train: www.unit2fitness.com in Midtown Atlanta (Roberto Traven instructs here).
