    What styles/ranges are you looking for? Striking, grappling, MMA? There's plenty of BJJ places. The more specific you are, the more helpful people will be.

    Avoid Tae Kwon Do and Karate schools for the most part, they tend to be the biggest black belt factories. And if you visit and they have a dozen people (or some high number) of black belts there, probably a McDojo. If people are getting black belts in a couple of years (2-3) McDojo.

    *nervous laugh* Eh heh heh heh....I sorta trained at a Tae Kwon Do school....for about 3 1/2 years....and got my black belt.... -.-' My sabomnim is decent enough though, he never taught me any bullshit, and there weren't a high number of blackbelts there. Just whoever made it through the grueling testing.

    Are there any good BJJ in the North County area(760)? I'm currently at a pretty cool Muay Thai place in Oceanside...though the trek over there takes me about an hour by bus...2 buses to be exact.

    I'd also like to know about any places that teach Silat or Kali....the only one I know of is in Vista. I'm weary of that one because they also claim to teach Jeet Kune Do....but so far I haven't heard anything about the teacher's lineage...meaning I've asked Inosanto students...and they don't recognize the Vista school.

    NHB and Vale Tudo gyms are something I'm interested in, but I doubt there are any in my area(I know about Lion's Den, but I'm pretty sure that it would take me a whole day to get there by bus).

    Also, does anyone know anything about Sensei Jeff Brown? I've met him, and he seems nice....but I'm just taking precautions before considering his dojo.

    I do plan to stick with muay thai for a while, but all the info just helps for later on when I want to switch my training.

    Thank you.

    I lived in Oceanside a few summers ago. There's Oceanside BJJ, which I think is pretty good. However, I instead trained with Tim Clepper because I was just starting and he was way cheaper. He was a purple belt back then, and our training was a mix of Danzan-ryu (more traditional, a lot of wristlocks and throws) and BJJ, with a lot of sparring. His instructor was a BJJ black belt, also teaching out of Oceanside. I'd recommend either for the price, but there's definitely better places to train closer to you.
