Looks like a east coast move in imminent and I'm looking for some info on where to train in the Raleigh area. I'm looking for a real academy, with guys who go to train, not hold the walls up. I trained for many years at one of the best academies in NorCal and as of recent I moved, and I'm forced to train at a, well, "lesser" (thats putting it nicely) academy. No warm up, classes start late, 3 minutes of repetition before the 'move' evolves and then open mat. No mandatory rolling, no timed rounds or anything. Upper belts lounge around and everyone relies on strength. The only guys half way decent are those from other schools. Its really not even worth going most of the time unless I get a rare upper belt who takes the time from his chit chat circle to roll, and even then its usually a match consisting of 90% strength and stalling. Enough bitching, are there any schools that are the opposite of this clusterfuck? I'd hate to move somewhere else and think I should just stop training because its so horrible.
