any renown players dow there? lookin to move
Trying to start a rivalry?
Most people would say Gustavo Dantas or Megaton is the best place to train in Phoenix but I don't know anything about Tuscon and other places in Southern Arizona and there are very few places to train in Northern Arizona (I train in Flagstaff with people who are mostly students of Megaton). Clearly... Dantas teams did the best at the last BJJ tournament Dantas put on based on points, followed by MMA Lab, but having visited Dantas' gym I believe Megaton has less students so it might be difficult to compare based on points alone (also the other two schools have people training MMA professionally whereas Megaton focuses only on grappling).
It depends where in Arizona you are looking to train. In the Phoenix area there is Arizona Combat Sports which is run by 3rd degree black belt Gustavo Dantas. There is also team Megaton which is taught by Gracie Humaita 4th degree black belt Megaton Dias. If you are looking to train in Tucson, then Tucson BJJ is the place to train. It is run by Demetrius Ramos a Rodgrigo Medeiros (bjj revolution) black belt and is where I train while attending University of Arizona. This was the school of world champion Ryan Beauregard who opened his own academy, Team Beauregard BJJ in Phoenix.
thank you guys very much. sounds like arizonas a solid jitsu place. im lookin forward to it
