So I had a friend of mine that was wanting to train martial arts and she called me up one day and told me she had joined an amazing gym that offered everything that she wanted. I asked her the name of the gym so I could do some investigating for her and was smacked in the face with about every red flag you could think of on that site. I decided to call and find out more information that way and, like CombatYoga has already pointed out, I was fed a stream of buzz words(BJJ catch wrestling combat science) and name drops(Alliance Jiu Jitsu affiliate). He then asked if I had trained and I said that I hopped about from school to school and he said that was unacceptable and he only wants dedicated students and no gym hoppers. I asked more about his(Charles) qualifications and he said that all the information I was asking about was found on the website and then he promptly hung up on me and refused to answer his phone or call me back

I'm in New Braunfels. I'm off all day tomorrow. I'll call them up and tell them that I'm interested in getting back in to Jiu Jitsu. We'll see where it goes from there.

So far, nothing but the answering machine. In all fairness, the pics on their site seem to show that most are wearing Judo/JJJ style kimonos. There is one pic with a woman in a pink Fuji gi, but that doesn't mean anything. I bought my daughter a pink Fuji gi when she was taking Danzan Ryu because the only available pink gi was in BJJ style.
I've seen no claims to BJJ rank. But, I'll keep calling until I get somebody on the line.

I didn't stop by, I wanted to reach a live human being on the phone first and now I'm out of town till next Wednesday. Guess I have to get over that wish and just show up cold.
