    I'm in need of some mats myself. I'm thinking about calling the local high schools around here and seeing if they have any mats to donate to a BJJ school intended to keep kids off the street.

    That's actually what I'm planning on doing as well as soon as I get back to the states. Just running around to the local high schools and seeing if their wrestling programs have any mats they want to get rid of.


    Just have to clean those bad boys really well before using them.


    How's your school coming along by the way? What stage are you in of getting it all together? When do you anticipate the opening being?

    Yeah, it seems like a good idea to me. I'm in a rough neighborhood so everybody always talks about things they can do to get the kids off the streets... I figure BJJ will be a great tool to steer kids away from that shit.

    Yeah i'll be cleaning the shit out of everything with that MRSA virus going around. We've had 3 football teams in my area get MRSA in their locker room.

    I'm still in the early stages, just got the teachers lined up and trying to figure out promotions and stuff like that. I'm in the process of buying the building right now, so i'm not sure how long that will take (finding an agreeable price, etc) but i'll be wanting to start it up as soon as I get the building. Not sure when i'll be starting the commercial classes, but anybody from MMANews is more than welcomed to come train with us.

    Very cool. How many instructors do you have lined up? How long have you been training and what's your rank?


    Yeah, I managed to get MRSA about a year ago. It fucking sucks. I have been mercilessly anal about cleaning everything after a workout ever since.


    So are you looking to buy a building, or lease one? You going to concentrate mostly on BJJ, or going to have a cross-section of classes?

    I have 1 instructor able to be full time. I've been training for about 5 months (started about 6 months ago but had a shoulder set me back a month), but I train No Gi so I don't really have a rank, but when rolling with ranked students I match up with Blue Belts. I'm wanting to get one of those Hemp Gi's and start training with the Gi.

    MRSA ain't no joke, especially after seeing Randleman's lol. My brother almost threw up when I showed him that Randleman pic, he was like I wasn't expecting anything like that.

    I'm looking to buy the building, I have a few investors in my Spa and i'll be using the back as a training center. I'm wanting to do a cross-section but I don't want to put in money on somebody training MT or boxing so we'll probably just self teach other aspects for the time being.
