So as a judo guy I want to add more ground work to my training and I have two options in my area Mauricio Villardo (A blackbelt under Royler), or Marcelo Silveira (a black belt under "Conan" Silveira), have any of you roll or practice with any of this guys, and if so, what do you think will be my best option (yes I'm also planning to go to the classes, but I want to see some opinions of the bullies and people who might know way more than i do around here).
Thank you :bully:

Neko, how far north in Boca are you?

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Go to both places. They should both allow you at least 1 free class. See which instructor you like more, which has the better facility, which class's frequency matches your schedule.
Basically - go to both. Make a pros and cons list and start from there. First hand experience trumps all. This shouldbe common sense.

as a matter of fact, I agree with you Yrkoon, I've already call both places and I'm going this week to one and next week to the other, I just wanted to hear some opinions in case anybody knew this people personally or have rolled with anybody from this schools.
