    Just letting WNYers know that Carlson Gracie Team Buffalo is accepting members. The team meets fridays at 630 at flips gym in lockport. if you have any questions check out http://www.jamestownjiu-jitsu.com/index.htm . Chuck runs his Jamestown Academy and the Team in Buffalo. He is a purple belt under Carlson Gracie Sr. He is an excellent teacher and coach. Feel free to contact Chuck through his website or me here. All skill levels and ages are welcome.

    Chuck Anzalone, he is a Carlson Gracie Sr Purple Belt.
    Very attentive and involved.
    This is the instructer.

    BTW Gusano, What can we expect on a Wed MMA class in Jamestown?
    4 oz gloves, no gi, headgear?
    I don't know what to expect for the 2 hour class.

    Parker.

    Parker, for the MMA class we train without the gi. You guys won't be doing any full contact sparring anytime soon but will be doing lots of striking with pads in the beginning to hone your skills. We hit focus mitts and Thai pads to practice punching and elbows. We have a leg kick pad and body shields to practice kicking and knees. We also practice no-gi grappling technique and free spar grappling without the gi. In the beginning, guys train these things seperately and once they have a foundation they are combined. Later comes sparring with protective gear that includes all aspects of the fight from standing to clinch to the ground and includes striking on the ground.

    Expect an awesome workout and we'll grab some food afterwards!

    I'm up in Buffalo a lot on business. Overnights, and all. I'm new to grappling, but would it be imposing to ask if I could come and check your academy out if I'm out "west"?
