So I'm back home in New Jersey from San Diego, taking care of college stuff, went to a wedding, and scouting out a new gym. I went to this one gym tonight which I had a bad feeling about before I even went. The place advertises on it's website that some black belt from ATT is the instructor there. When I show up though it's a couple of blue belts teaching, and these blue belts are like medium to high white belts at my school back in San Diego. The white belts that were here all seemed to be like, 3 weeks into training. I'm not arrogant at all in my abilities, but I seriously don't see my self getting anything from this gym. I don't need a black belt to teach me (the gym I'm checking out tomorrow is run by browns, and I get a way better vibe from this place) but this place just SUCKED. I'm a 4 stripe white belt and I was most likely the best person there. I wouldn't be talking shit about it if not for the fact that 1)it's one of these massive chain places 2) it was full of guys that were the sort of stereotypical asshole wrestler types who thought that since they could wrestle than they were all around great grapplers. This one guy appeared to be a great wrestler, but he didn't know shit about submissions or how to play off of his back, and he was worshipped at this place. On top of all of that, not a single person ever came up to me. I was just some sort of "weirdo" sitting in the corner and nobody inquired as to what I was doing or if I wanted info, or anything like that. Part of me knows that I'm spoiled in San Diego, but part of me knows that this place just plain old sucked.
