    I'm waiting till after my wife graduates from school then im thinking of joining a bjj school, i have a couple of options, either at Klay Pittman's Gym Or Tony Bonello's. Price Range is huge but I was just wondering if there is anyone here who has trained with either one and their opinion of the gyms? Any help would be appreciated.

    The only thing I would pay Tony Bonello for is to stop working fights. He's a disgrace to MMA.

    I've never heard of the other guy but I would go with him.

    doesn't pittman have a reputation for nickle-and-diming people with belts? I think he uses like 9-10 belt colours for his students and testing for each one is like 50$

    I feel like any thread discussing Tony Bonello needs this gif.

    Tony Bonello seems like a complete douchebag. I don't care how good the training is or how low the prices are, I wouldn't want to learn from him because he strikes me as a terrible human being.

    Yes, and the same one that has beaten 5 people who are currently either 0-1, 0-2, or 0-3 including a guy named T Bone (which is listed as his name, not a nickname) and Gumgor Gumgor.
