    This thread is oddly specific so I doubt it will get any attention, but here it goes.

    I'm on my way to my senior year in highschool, and I desperately want to go to college in southern California, aka BJJ heaven. I'm in the Bay Area currently.

    Do any of you who live in SoCal know of any BJJ/MMA schools (provided they have real BJJ) near any colleges. <30 min walk would be great, train and bus are fine too.

    Also any particular schools with flexible schedules are great. (BJJ AND college)

    I'm sure LA has plenty, but I didn't go there.
    San Diego has UCSD, which is down the road from Roy Harris. A bit futher is Saulo, and the new Throwdown. But still very reasonable distance.

    Wander Braga teaches at Gauntlet BJJ, which is about a 10-15 minute bike ride from the Claremont Colleges.

    Wait you want bjj schoosl next to colleges? There is like 10 schools per 20 mile radius so I don't think you should have much problem. Fabio Santos, Roy Harris, Riberio brothers, etc are all pretty close to UCSD and SDSU, as well as Dean Lister and some other good schools. I don't really suggest SDSU as a school though. San Diego also has a good and expanding public transportation system, primarily referring to the trolley.

    As far as flexibility, almost every main bjj school offers classes 1-2 times a day, and college has classes running from 6 in the morning to like 8 at night usually.
