    As some of you may know I will be moving to the DC area to attend Job Corps in less than 2 weeks. What this requires is that I live on campus and cannot bring my own vechile with me, which limits my means of transportation.
    I suppose I could take a cab, but when you figure in the fact that I will have to pay a cab to and from campus plus pay for my training all out of my food money (for those of you that know I can't travel to and from work as a condition of entering Job Corps).

    So if any of you could give me a ride to 1 class per week I would be willing to give you $100 a month and maybe a little more. If your interested just post here or PM me ASAP, because I would really hate to stop training for the next 8 months.

    Thanks,
    The Man Monster

    Another option, is maybe take a cab to class, and then find a ride home with someone there. That way your easing the burden a littlebit. And for $25 per week, they should give ya a ride to 2 classes. I'm half tempted to join Lloyds just so I can take your $100. But Lloyd and his students are good people. I'm sure you'll find some help.

    I really hope so, I'm well aware that Lloyd Irvin and his team are top notch and I'd give my right nut to train there... Also, who all steadily teaches there?
    I've searched the site and found a few names, but I don't think Todd Margolis and Leo Dalla are normally there.

    Not sure about Todd, but I beleive Dalla has his own school somewhere in No. Va now. He's still part of the Lloyd Irvin network though.

    Where are you going to be living at? I know the Arlington, VA (www.novamma.com) is a lloyd irvin affiliate school that is easily accessible by metrorail (DC's subway), which is cheap, easy, and safe. I don't know if Lloyd's location is accessible via the metro, but you may be able to find some combination of public transportation and walking that's easy. Check it out and shoot me a pm if you need help. www.wmata.com is the main transit site

    Dude, Why Lloyd's? If you were going to give Yamasaki Academy a chance then there is no need for a car. In the DC area there is an exellent Subway system called METRO-Rail as mentioned in a previous post. It is fast, effecient, inexpensive and safe. It covers the entire washington area. There are two places to train that I know are walking distance to Metro-Rail stops.

    1) Tenley Town on the Red Line. Yamasaki operates out of the the Sport & Health Gym (BJJ and Thai Boxing). Very nice part of town.

    2) White Flint also on the Red line is the main school. The school is about 4 blocks away but they have day and night classes as well as MMA on Fridays and Thai Kickboxing every day exept sundays.

    I may try and train at both if its possible, but if I can't make it to both then I'll have no choice but to train at Mr. Irvins school... He just seems like the best opition for me.

    In either case if you think the subway system is safe then I would love to cross train with both schools, as I will only be able to attend school 1 day a week at Lloyds due to my school schedule (I can't be off campus after 9:00 or I will be locked out until the next day) and I'd really hate to train just once a week.

    Hey, I checked out the Yamasaki Academy and the DC area school only has class that run to close to 9:00 at night, which I cant attend.
    If you could please correct me then I would love to attend this place on the days I cant make it to LIMMA.

    Why not Lloyds? He can get to it on the subway, too. And besides, the only good Yamasaki school is Dave Jacob's, because he's so dreamy....

    Seriously, both schools/networks are good with plenty of options, and there's "One Source MA" or whatever around there, too.

    Anyway, I'm all the way down in Fredericksburg, and it'd take $100 worth of gas just to come truck you back and forth to The LAB with me on TUE-THUR, and I usually don't leave til 9:30 so I can get extra mat time in.

    By the way, in two weekends, Jeff Routh's (a Dalla/Irvin affiliate MT school) has a Shogun/Ninja seminar.

    LMAO!
    I read the first half of your post and started to be like "I've heard nothing but great things about Ground Zero from my instructor" and then I realized after reading the rest of your post that we share an instuctor, as I train under John in Richwood... :redface:

    In either case is this Jamie or Ernest?
