I was stationed in Hohenfels at 1/4 INF until 2005.

There is a school in Bamberg but its a bit of a drive, same with Munchen. I heard there was supposed to be a BJJ/MMA school opening in Regensberg, its about 15 mins away, but I don't know anything about it.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
Thanks man. The guy doing my PCS told me he would ask around for it. I've read that there is a big gym with "wrestling mats," so I assume some combatives go on. I guess I'll find out soon enough.
Search this thread:
It is a list for Grappling/BJJ Schools in Germany. It is from a german forum and maybe you need someone to translate. But even if you cant translate, if you read the whole thread you may find the city you are looking for mentioned with the address of the school in the same post.
i found a training opportunity which supposedly is close to kaiserslautern that offers kickboxing and bjj, maybe it is worth checking out for you guys down there:

Check out the website: http://www.alliance-bjj.de/
It might be a bit of a haul (90 mins.) But it is well worth it, and you will probably come to Frankfurt pretty often anyway if you live in Landstuhl.
PM me if you want more info.
First off, sorry for the mild thread necomancy. However, I thought it would be better to post in this thread rather than starting a new one.
I am going to work in Moenchengladbach from Summer onwards and would like to know if anyone knows of any good BJJ/MMA school nearby.
The only one I can find on the interweb is http://www.jkd-akademie.de/, which does Luta Livre training. I have googled the instructor and he seems to be fairly active in grappling competitions, which is good. However, the image of Bruce Lee on the website and the heavy JKD bias makes me somewhat wary so I am looking for alternatives just so I can make a more informed choice.
I don't speak german, which doesn't help! (I plan to learn some german before going over though)
Gave the site a quick look, ELLO is a legit ValeTudo/ Luta Livre organisation, trainer states

I'll probably give that school a go when I get to Menchengladbach and after I've learnt some german!
Go and check out Michael Schmitz' school in Mönchengladbach. He is a good guy.
