    Kali was actually how I found his website after searching for Tennessee Kali schools on google, so it naturally has my interest peaked.

    Looks to be a great school actually. 2 hours though, ick...

    There is nothing wrong with learning how to throw ppl on their heads, plus your ground work will still be better than the average joe.

    There are a few places around. Team Oxendine apparently competes in MMA. I checked out their gym but couldn't stay to see what the class was like. The instructor mentioned that they start people out with BJJ. The big bummer is that it was expensive and had a 6-month contract; I think 75 dollars a month gets two classes a week, 85 gets 3, and 100 get unlimited. I talked to the guy that runs it and visited their gym. It's in downtown Johnson City and is rather small. Unfortunately my parents aren't comfortable with the location of the gym, so the prospect of my being able to check it out is unlikely. Casey Oxendine, the guy who runs it, apparently has a brown belt in BJJ: http://bjj.org/a/people/moreira-helio-soneca.html. Here's Team Oxendine's website. http://www.groundnpound.org/teamox/

    Another option is the Ithica Kingsport Judo Dojo. I don't know much about it other than that it's about 25 minutes away. I'm planning on checking it out in the near future. The prices are somewhat expensive, 85 a month with a contract and 25 a week without a contract. They advertise Judo, Gracie Jiu Jitsu, and wrestling (Greco-Roman and free-style.) I couldn't find whether or not the head instructor has any rank in BJJ, though evidently Helio Soneca had a seminar there. Here is their website. http://www.kingsportjudo.com/

    That's about all I've got. If you find anything worthwhile in this region, let me know.

    Hmm, I hadn't heard about Oxendine, I'll have to check it out.

    The 2 hours thing doesn't bother me. I had to drive a lot to go to my former school before I moved here and I did that for 4 years, no problem.

    Hitman;

    I havnt seen Bruce Corrigan in several years (about 15) but i trained with him in Virginia Beach when I was in the Navy. He was a great teacher back then and had a great reputation. Even back then, he taught a pretty rounded out program including kickboxing, kali, and other things. I also remember he was pretty selective with who he took on. I was surprised to see he was in tennessee.

    The real deal

    I met Corrigan a few years ago at a retreat..he`s a great guy..and has some of the really combative kali and JKD too, and his BJJ is top notch..I`d go with hi school..
    His teaching skills aqre top notch too....
    Have fun!!

    If this is the same progressive, I stick sparred against these guys a few years ago at a tourny in MD. They're skills were solid. (Again, if it's the same group) Corrigan won in his weight-class. As I remember there was a bit of controversy and he popped a guy's elbow in the final bout (supposedly didn't feel/hear him tapping).

    Just a quick update.

    I have an intro session tomorrow at 5pm EST. I'll post with an update afterward.
