    Greg Eldred's school in Indianapolis is good, as is Team Mario Roberto (www.ibjja.com). I'm not really sure how close "NW Indiana" is to Indianapolis, but at least I got NJCarder's question . . . By the way NJCarder, check out my response to your post on the "New Brown Belt" topic.

    Hands down the best in Indiana, Marcello Montiero 3rd BB under De La Riva.

    www.bjjcoach.com

    Address to school is wrong as he just moved and opened a new place, and also opened a second no-gi place.

    He is also cheaper than the other two places, even going 8x a week.

    Email or call him from the link and he will get back to you fast.

    www.bjjcoach.com Marcello is a great teacher, under De La Riva.
     

  14. dont listen to these guys, clingerman's is the only way to go...montiero is an closeminded asshole who barely speaks english, uses outdated techniques, gi only, and shows unbelievable favoritism to a 1 or 2 chosen students, plus he sells FAKE GI's , hes a snake, not only does he NOT believe in mma classes or no-gi training, he is a jerk...i used to go there for over a year and after my first trial class at ibjja i quit his dump

    Hey Mr. 3 posts ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The post was about NW Indiana, not Greenwood. I also don't know how " barely talks English" has anything to do with training. Helio barely talks English, you wouldn't want to learn from him?

Miguel Torres was his student before he left to carlson, and monteiro fought mma and won in indiana... i think u just frustrated because he didnt baby you.. its up to you to ask questions....

    wow, it's one thing to give your opinion on someones instruction and its another thing to call them out personally on a bunch of random bs.


    whatever

    WHo is this?

    Marcello Montiero is the best instructor in Indy HANDS Down. He is the nicest guy there is. Is the most qualified by far. Why do you hate him?
