    So there's a jiu jitsu class thing near where I live and it's by the looks of it a Demian Maia student teaching the classes. Do you guys know any of the sort and can tell if it's a good place to start training jiu jitsu? Thank you!

    This is their youtube channel, Vitalino Silva is the teacher.

    Many thanks.

    Yes, it is. Go there at once.

    Unless there's another place close by with a legit black belt. Then consider going there instead.

    But "go there at once" is the important part.

    Thaanks, is the teacher good? (I think he moves well but I don't know shit about jj yet)

    I'm going to university near there and saw it and got very interested so it's great if you think it's good!

    I was there just last week :)

    Teacher speaks excellent english and is a pretty good purple belt. If it is near your house, the "go there at once advice" is perfect.
