    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    BJJ and other guys, how good is this place/guy?

    I wanted to try and get more ground work in, how would you guys that know of him or this place rate it?

    www.pedrovianna.com

    I searched around and did not find anything so wondering what you know about it?

    Thanks

    PS the only thing I did find was this

    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/f...fighterID=2044

    http://fcfighter.brinkster.net/fight...FighterID=9614

    Dunno if that is him, but I think it is?

    looks to be the real deal as far as lineage is concerned...Carlos Sr, ----Carlson Sr, ------Carlson, Jr, ---------Pedro Vianna. Some one local may no more though.

    He's been part of a good team it looks like.
    From what I've heard, there is tons of great bjj in Chicago. Look around at a few different schools.

    11 posts or more to PM. Sorry, had too many idiots who signed up for accounts just to harass other people via PM.

    Oh ok thanks Phrost. I read about some people having problems and DOS attacks (in the support forum), so assumed thats what it was. Thanks for clarifying :).
