I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to find it; how did you find / hear about your current school? Were you actively looking at the time, or did you just fall into it? Is it what you were looking for to start with, or have you ended up on a different track?

I found it from someone here on the forum that (ironically) had PM'd me about trying to find a BJJ/MMA school in my area.

My original TKD clubs I found by personal recommendation.

Backhold wrstling, by searching for it.

Clubs I've trained at in Poland were generally by advertising.

In some cases, Tai Chi, Doce Pares, JKD they were what I wanted to do (after some years of experience).

TJJ, TKD I fell into.

My school is all word of mouth. I found out about it through my cousin who was in the class at the time.

Word of mouth...one person recommending another person, and so on until I found something local.

2.Were you actively looking at the time, or did you just fall into it?
Actively looking.

3. Is it what you were looking for to start with?
No.

I overheard two friends of mine, talking about visiting a class.
One dropped out after a couple of weeks. Currently I train the most of us.
