Alex Wilkie's used to have some decent grapplers on the local level. There were some local fighters that used to do ground training there, and they had okay basics, although nothing spectacular. The kickboxing was the strength of the place, not the ground.
You could definitely do worse, but depending on your specific goals and your location, you can probably do better. Where in New Jersey are you?

The curriculum looks okay, check it out to see how they train and if the instructors can pound some student ass without difficulty (they should if it's a good place).
Yes, that does sound sexual. I'm a friendly guy.
Purple is so far away I can't even begin to contemplate Blue. Ah, the Bujinkan served me well...Mr Politically Correct GIJoe6186:
Fat people disgust me in every way imaginable. I was at Freindly's with my girl tonight and saw a bunch of fat fuckers. I felt sorry for the pavement they were killing and the people who had to see them. .

At the place I do BJJ at, there's a purple that handles the actual class, but he is overseen by a black belt."Keep a sharp knife, shiny boots and be on time."

BJJ is rife with people that are "only" blue or purple belts -- but wrestled, boxed, or in general have extensive experience that is not traditionally 'ranked' in any way. Or maybe he's a black belt in Rex Kwon Do -- who knows? :)

Two purple's run the bjj classes I checked out. If they know more than you and can teach you I don't see it as an issue.
To echo gorrila, in my case one was a pretty decent greco wrassler and taught no-gi, the other a 4th dan in judo and he taught gi.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

I just wanted to bump this thread back up and see if anyone else had any opinions/experience with this school? I'm thinking about training at this place since the prices at my current school are pretty high.
