    academy choice..what do you think?

    since, im new to bjj and never took a martial art before, it was tough for me to find a school. i live in los angeles, and i took classes at gracie in torrance and then ultimately i now train at beverly hills jiu jitsu.
    my question is how do i know i am at a good place? it seems instruction at these two places were very different even though they were both teaching bjj.
    anyone offer an opinion or any reputable schools in los angeles?

    Thought it sounded familiar, and with a quick check on fightfinder.com, I was reassured.

    Genki Sudo's club.

    It has a good reputation. Stay there.

    Do they teach you how to sew and dance in Genki's club? Granted, those are some pretty nifty outfits. I really like the Super Mario one and the one where he dresses up as a woman with a fan and does some magicky tricks.

    Oh, and the mask under a mask for a finisher!

    Then again, a guy that kicks that much ass can dress anyway he wants as far as I'm concerned.

    P.S. I've gotta learn that "jumping leg triange choke". That's freakin' sweet.

    If you're looking just for fun training and ability to fight in "self defense" situations, I'd say go to the place most convenient that actually teaches something of use. If you want to be a amateur or pro fighter, do some research and compare the fight history of both places.

    How do you train at beverly hills jiu jitsu and ask a bunch of online people who you dont know if it's a "good school"

    You are unworthy.

    PS: Does Bas still swing by there?

    because i am new to martial arts. i dont know the difference in terms of instruction.
    for example, i played division 2 basketball, when i first started going to camps i didnt know which ones were the most efficient/good at developing my skills. in the end i realized there are good camps and great camps. i improved my game the most at the great camps. i was just wondering if my training in martial arts was at a place where i would not just be wasting my effort.
    i realize a lot depends on the student/person, but good instruction makes a big difference. in all honesty, i was hoping someone had trained there before, or trained somewhere else and could offer me an opinion.
    like i said, i am noobie to bjj/mma.
    BTW, havent seen bas just yet.

    Fair enough.

    Well then to answer your question (though a few others already have) it's regarded by many to be one of the best schools in the world.

    I've never trained there personally, but those who have speak nothing but praises about it.

    Lets just say you're a lucky dude to say the least.

    How much $$$ is it for unlimited classes?

    thanks to all who replied.. im having a blast at that school so far.
    as far as pricing it is on his site. cant really comment if it is expensive or cheap as i dont know how much is too much.
