"Elite Performance Gym is a thing of virile charm. A warehouse garage turned professional MMA studio: cement floors, exposed ceilings, Olympic-style weight set, an octagon steel cage, two handmade-by-Horn boxing rings, a sprawling wrestling mat, and Fairtex Muay Thai equipment galore. Garage doors that once opened to a loading dock, now serve to ventilate the sticky, leather-scented humid air."
I worked out with one of their members, Little Idea, who gave me my first BJJ/submission wrestling lesson.

Hey guys, I might be moving to Alachua, FL. I'm not familiar with the area or even what is close to that area. Does anyone know any good bjj, MMA, or judo clubs in that area? I would prefer bjj.

Gracie Barra Birmingham, UK
Founded by Mauricio Motta Gomes, also affiliated with Roger Gracie and i'm not 100% sure on this but think Braulio Estima is the main instructor so the heritage is certainly here.
Will be able to provide more info by next week hopefully as i will be able to make it down to my first class.
Single Class £8
8 Classes / month £55 = £6.87 per class
12 Classes £60 = £5 per class
16 Classes £80 = £5 per class
Unlimited + gym £90 = £2.81 / average of 8 classes per week
Check the site for training times, plenty of choice.

Can anyone suggest good BJJ/grappling instruction in the Waco, TX area? I have a friend who lives there and wants to start doing BJJ but I have no idea what schools they have or how far the schools I found on google are from Waco.
