    I had some misgivings because of the taekwondo program, but the Machado Brothers had such a good rep I thought maybe it would be ok.

    I know there are some good schools in charlotte, but this place is so close and has earlier classes.

    I'm aware of an instance in which a Relson Gracie purple belt moved to a little town and rented space from a TKD school. The school's owner and head TKD instructor started taking BJJ classes under the purple, presumably with a view to earning some rank and becoming an affiliate. Maybe it's a similar situation here, except that the affiliation fell through and the Machados forgot to take the school off their list. At any rate, you've already been advised to get in touch with Mr. Streicher which ought to resolve the matter.

    To ender1, I agree with Omega and Stolper138.
    What!? were you an extra here?



    I only ever rolled with Rigan.
    FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.

    This one is more telling of the midset of the school.

    So would the 6-year-old MT kid beat all of those dorks, or all of them at once?

    Don't judge a school by the asstasticity of a specific program.

    45 minute classes though - is that really long enough? Personally I like at least an hour, but then I'm mildly retarded and need plenty of time for drilling techniques.

    From checking the class schedule, the BJJ program looks like it's being run as an add-on to the black-belt "karate" or whatever it is they're teaching (I couldn't find a clear definition of style or lineage). My gut feeling is that if you're purely looking to study BJJ you may be much better finding a dedicated school.

    tl;dr - you should ask for a couple of free classes, or at least go to watch.
