    So I happened to be driving by Rigan's academy in Torrance, CA and noticed out of the corner of my eye that one of his signs was gone. It used to say "Rigan Machado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu" or something like that. Now it says, "1-888-NINJUTSU" in tacky wannabe Japanese style lettering!

    Anybody know anything about this?

    I dont know much about his school, but Rigan came over to Global Jiujitsu back in October and gave us an awesome free seminar. So he is still around BJJ from time to time I'm assuming.

    I think I found the new location. It is in north Redondo, on Artesia Blvd. Anybody that train at this location, if you have some basic info such as costs and schedules for beginner adult and children classes, please advise. The website I found does not have any info or contact number. http://www.riganmachado.com/
    Thanks.
