    Thanks much
    Around where do you live? I'm in the DC area and just joined a place where Pedro Sauer is the instructor. Haven't seen a class led by him yet because I can only go weekends but the Purple belt instructor over the weekend is pretty cool. Though, depending exactly where in the DC area you are it might be too far.

    Above link shows the two locations for BJJ on Sauer's website. I just started at the one in Herndon. Good crowd, friendly students and higher belts.

    I'm in Landover, MD to the East of DC. Both of those locations are a little too far for me. I'm trying to keep the drive under 30 minutes because my old school was only about 3 blocks away and I got spoiled :icon_blac

    Thanks for the suggestion though man, I hadn't come across your school and it looks like a good one. Any more ideas?

    Edit: Well, I went ahead and signed up at the Yamasaki Academy. Seems like a pretty good school. They've got a few different locations around the area and a lot of different classes during the day. Feel free to ask me about it after I've been going for a few weeks. :icon_thum

    Kioto BJJ LI- Massapequa, NY
    The instructors are Kevin Wind Sr. and Kevin Wind Sr. Both are purple belts and certified instructors under Master Francisco Mansor. The classes and curriculum are very structured, personally not for me but I think it's very good for people who aren't very physically coordinated or just like slower paced learning. I trained there for a month unfortunately I only took 5 classes in that time. At the time it was $80 for 1 class a week.
    http://www.kiotobjjli.com/

    Kioto BJJ LI- Sayville, NY
    The main instructor here is Milton Regis a Mansur black belt. I have not trained here but I have talked to people who have and I was told they use the same structured curriculum.
    http://www.kiotobjj.com/index1.html

    Serra BJJ - Huntington, NY
    Matt and Nick Serra's school. Renzo Gracie black belts. I have not trained here but I did watch a class probably about two years ago. I know this isn't much of an endorsement but I've rolled with two of their students, and advanced white and a purple belt, and well they're better than me.
    For an informative review check here:
    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=47581
    http://www.serrajitsu.com

    Serra BJJ - East Meadow , NY
    Probably a lot like the Huntington class.

    Vamos BJJ - Holbrook, NY
    The instructors there are Chris and Alex Vamos, Joe D'Arce purple belts. I have taken an intro class with them. I was taught a guard pass, an escape from mount, and 2 submissions. Then about an hour of free rolling. I have rolled with 3 of their blue belts outside of class and they're better than me. If it was cheaper and closer I'd probably train there.
    http://www.vamosjiujitsu.com

    Shootfighting - Plainview,NY
    It is a separate class taught out of Busto's Karate and Fitness a Tracy Kenpo school in Plainview, NY. While I was shown a couple of guard passes, a sweep from guard and the upa escape from mount, it seems to be run more like a study group than a formal class. We got to do some takedown sparring, think no gi judo, and free rolling. The next class I attended we did some padwork then went straight to grappling sometimes starting from standing sometimes starting from the knees.
    http://www.bustoskarateandfitness.com/

    Combat Judo - Massapequa, NY
    The class is run out of Judo sports in Massapequa by Mark Staniszewski (BJJ Purple under Matt Serra and Judo Black belt)and Mike Arcuri (Judo Black/Wrestling coach). It is a completely separate class from the main Judo/Japanese Ju Jitsu classes that are run by the school owner, Sensei Thomas E. Dalvano (Judo Black 4th Dan). I did a review on the Combat Judo class here:
    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=51460
    But the main Judo/Ju Jitsu classes teaches grappling as well. Along with the grappling that is in the Judo and the Kokushiryu Jujutsu they also have a class on Monday specifically for grappling.
    I can't give a reliable opinion on the grappling instruction given in the Kokushiryu Jujutsu classes but since they are taught by a Judo instructor it can't be horrible.
    http://judosports.org
    To this list of Long Island schools, I would like to add the school I currently train at:

    Red Boy Brazilian Jiujitsu - Port Jefferson Station, NY
    BJJ classes are run by school owner Paul Rodriguez (BJJ Purple under Master Francisco Mansor), and MMA classes are taught by amateur fighter Eric Ott. Capoeira and boxing are also offered, and Judo classes are about to start as well.

    Just to try my luck;

    Anyone know of any schools around the South / South Central PA area... preferably between the Chambersburg - Harrisburg area. There are other schools, but the closest I know of is in York. One Judo place I found in Carlisle, they "don't do Ne Waza." That was in the instructor's own words.
