    interest primarily in building some self-confidence, improving my fighting skills and becoming fit again
    Here are some basics that will help your search.

    #Try a BUNCH of different places before you pick a school.
    #Ask if they spar. If they do, ask if you can observe the sparring. Since you are interested in improving your fighting skills, make sure that they have at least a fair amount of free sparring with contact. Some places restrict sparring @ the beginner levels, so you might have to try and check out the higher-level students sparring.
    #Try to avoid signing a long contract initially. You typically won't get a great feel for a school until you've been there several months.
    #Just because the school is really nice doesn't mean they are excellent teachers. Just because the school is a dump doesn't mean the teaching sucks.
    #Watch out for hidden fees--like excess charges for belt tests, mandatory equipment, etc.

    In case you still don't know, BJJ is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and SBG is Straight Blast Gym. Carlos Machado is a top BJJ instructor whose students run affiliate schools under him.

    Speaking of BJJ, here's something I came across on another forum that you might want to check out:

    Here's the links to my school in San Antonio

    http://home.earthlink.net/~sinlapa-muay/
    http://www.realityself-defense.com/

    Muay Thai, Submission Wrestling, Kung Fu, TKD (just started classes at our school in Sept.)
    I like this place alot, been going here since Jan 2004. Ku Phet is a vey nice guy, almost to the detriment of his business. He teaches Muay Thai and has a Kung Fu. If you are interested in fighting MT competitively definitely talk to him. As for submission wrestling/MMA Mike Rangel has a small team of MMA fighters who also practice here. Andrew Chapelle who fought Aaron Riley in Hook n Shoot trains with him.

    There is also a Self Defense class taught by Ivan Santana and a Kung Fu class (not sure what style) taught by another guy whose name escapes me.


    I have also heard good stuff about Texas Powerhouse also, but its abit to far from where i live.

    btw Im also on txmma forum as daigoro

    Yes, Curtis Abernathy's American Kenpo sakenpo.com. I tried a few trial classes there, and was not impressed. The students there were pretty sloppy, some of the brown belts didn't seem much more comfortable than I did, and even being out of training, I didn't break a sweat. The instructor there did have a bit of an attitude, but the last and loudest alarm bell was the 6-month contract. I'm not crying McDojo, but personally I would not recommend it.
