    So would it be possible to get some good takedown defense training at an MMA school? For example, at the school I've linked below? I figured that most of these types of schools would incorporate a lot of takedowns since that's where you want your fighters to be--on the ground.

    Thanks for the input.
    I would guess so, but the takedowns and takedown defenses that BJJ uses are wrestling and judo techniques so take that for what it's worth

    on another note, you can't lose going to a Relson Gracie JJ school, so I would definitely recommend it

    Cool. Yeah, I'm not really interested in where the techniques came from, as long as they work.

    One more question for you guys--Do you think it would benefit me significantly if I started going 1x / week? It would be ~3 hours, but there's no way I can make it out more than 1 day a week right now.
