Roger that. Do you normally train at Tully's? I'm always in Ballard, but we may have met. What's your name?Quote:

Plus, we share space with a Capoeira school, which is super fun to watch, if you know what I mean. Check us out at http://www.bjjseattle.com .
If you're looking for something a bit more MMA/No-GI focused, however, check out http://www.ringdemon.net . That's Eric Dahlberg, and the guy is a BEAST. He brings his guys over to train with us sometimes as well. Go to his site and check out his resume. I learned my second favorite guard pass from him. Amazing talent, super helpful.
I've heard nothing but good things about Brian, however. His guys can hang at tournaments, they're super technical, and they're nice folks. All the older guys say he 's great.
There really aren't any assholes in this town when it comes to BJJ. It's sort of a small scene, and everyone knows everyone else, so the **** gets weeded out REAL quick. There's no really heavy school rivalries or anything. Everyone's just super focused on training and improving. It just depends on what part of the area you live in, and what you want to focus on.
You really can't go wrong, as long as you go.
