    Please help O' knowledgeable ones

    Hi Guys,

    I don't post here very often these days, but I need some help please.

    I am looking into adding some more MMA/BJJ to my training, and have found these gyms close by. I am hoping someone who may be familiar with either of these can provide some insight/recommendations.

    http://tuffmuthafightgym.com.au/

    The coach here has a pretty decent pro MMA record

    and
    http://www.peterdebeen.com/

    There is a location near home. I hear Debeen BJJ kills it comp wise.

    Obviously I am planning to try both, but any options would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I am not from the area but doing well in competitions is usually a good indicator that it is a good gym.

    Again, not local...

    I would agree that an entire competition team with successes is probably a better option than a single pro fighter running the school. It seems trite, but look to your goals and identify which school is better aligned with them.

    Its true a school you will actually show up to is usually the best school. So the one that has the environment and people you like more is certainly good.

    Where in Brisbane are you? There's a few of us at Advance Martial Arts at Coorparoo, which is, of course, the best gym in Australia hands down.

    I've been told Advance is a good gym by quite a few people. I'm pretty far away from Coorparoo unfortunately, but thanks for the tip.

    They have a training facility out at Slack's Creek too, which is a bit closer to your end of town I believe.

    Thanks
    Not just a good gym. THE BEST GYM. Mainly because I train there and I'm a celebrity, Internet fame and all.
