My experience with Carlson Gracie Team MMA in Chicago
I recently moved to Chicago and visited a number of schools to pick a new place to train. Carlson Gracie in downtown Chicago is a SCAM. The sales representative Jimmy lied to my roommate and I about the pricing and contract, then fraudulently billed us even though we were not students and never attended a class after our first and only trial class. When we contacted Eric at membership services, he supported Jimmy. Apparently this is standard procedure there.
The facility itself is mediocre. No shower area. Few students in general, and even fewer advanced students.
There are a number of great BJJ gyms in Chicago with more integrity.
