    I am thinking of joining Gracie Barra. I really want to focus on my jiu jitsu (I am new) but do not want to shy away from Muay Thai (about 2 years experience). They offer both at this school I am looking at. Any input from Gracie Barra members?

    Which Gracie Barra? There are like a million. It's the largest chain of schools worldwide.

    try it out and see what you think. I'm sure they offer a free trial class.

    Looks like a good school. And if youre a gracie barra student, you can go train at any other gb school for up to a week for free. There are quite a few gb schools in the southern california area, including gb america, so thats a pretty big plus. But go check it out and see how you like it for yourself.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about joining Gracie Barra Orlando. I hear they're a little shiesty with their uniform policy but obviously the instruction is good. Well, you would figure.
