    Bham, UK, looking for good MA school

    Hey, I decided not to join up with a MT school recently, made a thread last week asking for opinions, and it was too pricey.

    I need to find a decent school that I can fit around my college hours, because I'm in college until six pm Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, until 4:30 pm Wednesdays and Fridays. So basically very busy.

    There was a promising looking BJJ school run by Mauricio Gomes's company in this country, Gracie Barra UK. The only problem is the hours, I'll post a link to the site

    Gracie Barra Birmingham

    I'd prefer Muay Thai or BJJ, since both rock, but tbh, I need anything, I need to get fit and be able to defend myself, and I don't know where to turn for McDojo's everywhere. Advice much appreciated!

    Standard answer - give it a look, check it out if you can. I don't know enough about B'ham to give you more info, but it's nice to know there's someone here not a million miles away from me.

    Hehe, no, you misunderstood. That place is where I want to go, but the hours they have seem impossible with my college commitments. I need to find somewhere close by that is good, as that place is 50 minutes away by walking and bus. I live in Harborne, in birmingham.

    And yeah, it is nice to have another UK BS member

    There are two good judo clubs run by 3Ks. I can't remember the exact names, but they'll be on the BJA website.

    The problem you will have is that if you can't make Braulio Estima (GB Birmingham), you probably won't make any of them as they all run at that time of the evening, although the judo clubs are much closer to you.

    Have you checked youe school to see if they have any grappling clubs? most schools will usually have a grappling, wrestling or kickboxing club.

    my college has no MA clubs, unfortunately, it's a small private college with the minimum of sports. And the BJA website lists a 3ks school but the website is a dead link.
