    Specifics are the key...

    If he's a black belt under Renzo it can't be bad. Check it out and see if you like the way he teaches. that's the best advice I can give.

    I've been going to Ground Control for about a month and a half and so far I like it a lot. I've felt pretty welcome as a new student. John Rallo is an excellent instructor and a very nice guy. We have muay thai, BJJ. MMA and boxing classes. We are also moving to a new and bigger building next week and are going to add alot more class times and also some Judo classes from what I hear.

    Also we have a bunch of muay thai fighters and MMA fighters that train there. Most notable Binky Jones who fought on the undercard of the CBS Saturday night fights event.

    SPRAWL I'll see you there. My name is Bryan i'm the tall skinny white guy wearing a gray long sleeve rash guard and black trunks. I'm mostly there days and thurs night. Just don't forget that Ground Control is closed through July 7.

    As far as new classes they are not really sure yet. It is going to be the same as the current schedule at the beginning and I think they are going to change it as they get more students and the need arises. I think they intend to add a lot more classes. But so far it sounds like they are definitly going to be adding a friday day no gi class at 11:15am and striking classes after the day no gi classes.

    Here is the current schedule if anyone is interested:

    Ground Control Academy - jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts in Baltimore, MD Current Schedule

    I forgot. If you want more info shoot them an email. They answer pretty quick.

    i haven't heard anything bad about GC other than that it didnt have much of a focus on Gi BJJ, but that doesnt look to be a problem considering your interests

    i got mad love for any legit school in the bmore area!
