Does anyone know of or have any experience with this school of MMA in Salem, MA? They claim to teach some BJJ as well as kickboxing and Filipino Jiu-Jitsu (something I've never heard of). They host a lot of seminars with Kenny Florian (UFC fighter). If anyone has had any experience with these guys it would be great to hear from you.

they're part of my organization, SBGi.
they have also done ok in grappling tournaments and i've seen their fighters on mma cards.
i also have friends at the school and everyone seems on top of their ****.

So you think it's an overall good school? What about the "Filipino Jiu-Jitsu"?

Style: TSD, Missing BJJ and Judo
I've met several of them at a Matt Thornton seminar, and they seem to know their stuff when it comes to BJJ. I'll also second what vinhthekid said, if they're SBGi it's an indicator that they are using good training methodologies (e.g. aliveness). I think it would be a good place to train. I can't speak for the Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, as I haven't seen that part of their curriculum.
(in the interest of disclosure, I'm also affiliated with SBGi)
