    Good schools in Tulsa, Oklahoma

    I saw that there are several people from Oklahoma posting here, and I was hoping that someone could recommend a good school in Tulsa for me. (Or at least tell me some that I should avoid.)

    I'm most interested in taking Muay Thai and/or a grappling system like BJJ, but I'm open to any other suggestions of non-BS styles that are taught in Tulsa.

    P.S. I'm a long time lurker, first time poster, So flame away. I can take it... :BangHead:

    MartialInfo.com sucks though, it usually only lists TKD and Karate schools. I used it for searching for a school when I started looking and found nothing but TKD and Karate schools listed.

    Thanks for the link. I checked it out, and it had some schools listed, but no reviews were written for any of them. I was hoping someone here would have direct experience with some Tulsa schools and could help point me in the right direction.

    Those are the ones I'd check out for sure, the rest I looked for had really generic names.

    In my half-assed searches, I've also found a gym run by Mikey Burnett that teaches submission wrestling, boxing, and NHB.

    BTW, Ack, if you find out anything about Burnett's place, could you come back and post about it? Google gives nothing other than a vague description and a location, and I won't actually be in Tulsa until the beginning of the fall term.

    Sure thing, Izzy. I'll post anything I find out, along with my final decision.

    Currently my short list includes:

    International Martial Arts Academy of Tulsa (formerly Gibson's Martial Arts) - Teaches Muay Thai, Filipino Martial Arts, Jun Fan/JKD, and "Groundfighting consisting of BJJ, Erik Paulson's Combat Submission Wrestling, and Marc McFann's Unified Fighting Arts." Their website seems to be down currently, but you can still browse most of it through Google's cache by clicking here: http://www.google.com/search?q=allin...n&lr=&filter=0 and then clicking on the <cache> link beside each page listed. Instructor bio from inosanto.com: http://inosanto.com/wrapper.php?file=bios_whittaker.htm

    Adams Muay Thai Kali Academy - http://www.muaythaikali.com - This instructor is a former student of Gibson's Martial Arts (above). This school seems to teach most of the same arts as the school above. Instructor's certifications: http://www.muaythaikali.com/instructors_sam1.htm

    the Mikey Burnett place - I know nothing about this place and can't find much about it on the web. I guess I'll have to call or visit to get further info on this place.

    I'm still eager to hear from anyone in this area who has experience with any schools in Tulsa.
