    Hey guys! I'm looking for a Bjj school in Pasadena area. Somewhere I can train in mornings before work. I've seen a few school around but def worried about their rep don't want to be in a mcdojo. Anyone got a few good suggestions? I appreciate any help thanks!

    Yeah, check out Gracie Barra Pasadena. Pretty sure you won't get the McDojo experience there :)

    There is Legacy in Pasadena which I believe is the same school another poster was talking about when saying "gracie barra pasadena." There is also a Machado school on Colorado blvd.
