    What's the vibe like at this gym? I'm looking for a no gi gym after training mostly gi. I'm a blue belt but coming back after a 3 year "break", 2 shoulder surgeries. I'm laid back and I'm not looking for a daily MMA shark tank beatdown. Is it a good place for 40 something hobbiest?

    Is next gen in san francisco still open? who teaches there now?

    I have tried different schools in SF I prefer Charles Gracie's schools and he has a couple near by. it's t really no gi but if you ask me no gi will have more of an mma type atmosphere than a traditional jiu jitsu school. kind of..

    Do you have any desire to do gi?

    If no go there. Chris teaches a lot o fkimuras and guillotines along with a lot of wrestling from what I've seen from his dozens of students I've reffed matches for/listening to him. I can see it being fast paced with a lot of young guns but I always see pics of older guys there as well on Facebook. I don't have much more insight then that, but go try out a few classes. I know he's highly skilled just by his results and the # of seminars I see him teaching across the world a lot of weekends.

    Frisco, tx. Suburb of Dalllas.

    Thanks for the info. I'm kind of tired of the gi. Thought I would never say this, but I'm kind of agreeing with Bravo about the gi.

    Go take a few classes and see if it fits. If you have ANY desire to do gi in the future though you will have to find open mats/other places to do that pretty much.
