3-4 days a week under a Charles Gracie BrownBelt. Started mid-December 2003 (at least somewhere around there).
Unfortunately for October and November of 2004 I was only able to attend one day a week at most.

Two BJJ blue belts under Adriano Lucio, black belt (BTT) teach our ne waza class once a week for our Judo Club. I've been able to attend one of his seminars and should be able to attend another one next week. He usually travels to the US twice a year from Brazil to give seminars at various schools in the South East. The BJJ we learn is tailored to Judo so we aren't learning any kind of leg locks. But I have been recently been given the green light to come to the University BJJ club when I want to so I'll probably be doing that pretty soon to get more rolling time in. I'm not a university student so I'm not supposed to participate in their club but they're going to make an exception for me. I believe the leader of the University club is a brown/purple under Mario Yamasaki."Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." -A. Lincoln

I train twice a week at Columbia University's bjj club. It's taught by two purple belts under Renzo, Jason Yang and Keith Wittenstein. It's nice knowing that they're both training at Renzo's each week, getting sharper themselves and bringing new techniques back with them. We mainly do no-gi.

Other than that, sporadic visits to BJJ places: Matt Serra, last summer 1 week=5days, Yamasaki's 3x in the last 2 years, John Rallo's (Renzo brown) place maybe 2x in the last year.

I train at SBG 2-3 times a week, for the last 6 months, about half the classes are taught by black belts, the rest either purple or blue. I have a gi but never use it.
Last year I did 3 months at Team Quest 3-4 times a week, with (I believe) a purple belt.
So I chose 'Other'.

I train under purple belt Ricardo da Silva. I make it at least once a week and 2-3 times when my schedule allows it.Dedicated to legs and the disrespecting thereof.
