Hi, I have been looking for some place to learn BJJ in my city. The yellowpages haven't been much help, pointing me to gym's which seem to do it as an aside (Bujinkan, Dragon MMA, Mike Miles (NKB), and Arashi-Do to name a few). I wanted to know if anyone had info on a quality place (or if one of the aforementioned where any good).

Thanks in advance.




Might be a little late with the reply but there's a listing at

http://www.fightcanada.com/training.htm#alb
and showdown.ca for schools.

Don't discount Gi work. I am more into the no-gi MMA style grappling myself, but my school does mostly gi work. It is good to familiar with both. Different strategies and techniques will give you more to work with. And nobody says you have to hang on to their gi or do gi chokes. I try not to, and when working out with gi, I try to find "body handles" that work as well. Behind the neck, the tricep, wrist, etc.




Yeah, despite what Eddie Bravo says about there being no point in practicing with the gi if you'll be doing no gi, there's valuable stuff you can learn doing the gi that'll translate to nogi. Even Eddie recommends wearing gi pants for guys who want a better half guard. It's good to be used to where clothing gives you extra grip to your or your opponents advantage, and the same for no clothing and extra slipperiness with nogi. I'm primarily nogi, but I'll put a gi on from time to time just to get some practice in something different.

Bitters, just checking how classes are going?

Here's also a link where Mike Yackulic fought Kalib Starnes who was on the Ultimate Figher 3 Series that I thought you may be interested in.

http://www.wffchampionships.com/wff9/6/index.htm

Mike's last fight was at King of the Cage on June 18, 2006 where he won by submission (triangle choke) over Mike Rooney. Just some info.

Ah, still going good. However, thanks to midterms I haven't been able to get our as much as I would like. When things slow down, I will hopefully be able to catch 3 classes a week.

One cool aside was that a friend of mine, whom I have not seen in a long time, takes classes here too. He has been doing it for about a year. It will be nice to be able to roll with him abit and catch some of the basics that I still haven't learned from Mike.
