    I've Rolled (got skooled) with Liffguard & based on that I'd say Sleeping Storm is a good place to train.
    Carlsons (Boiler Room) are top boys and offer more than BJJ.
    Rogers is great but expensive unless you do monthly (18 for drop in).
    If Brighton is not too far then http://www.ztfightskool.com Sol's ZT Fightskool is a top place (top bloke) about 2.25a day for all classes plus peak time access to the fitness gym.

    Oh yeah, I can also vouch for the Boiler Room guys (Carlson Gracie). Wilson is a crazy-good grappler. I mainly train with the Tonbridge-based Carlson school but I've rolled with some of the London guys too. So yeah, Carlson Gracie is another good school. I can't comment on Roger Gracie but from what I've heard it's also very good.

    Well worth it if you can afford the fees, which when I started about a year ago was 90 a month for unlimited classes, of which there are shitloads: you could potentially attend ten classes a week as a beginner. Once you get a third stripe on your white belt (normally takes 6-8 months), you can then go to all the advanced too, which brings the total up to about twenty (if my maths is right). After blue, you're restricted to the advanced classes.

    Its a big club, which means there is an excellent mix of size, experience, age and to a much lesser extent, gender.

    Let me know if you need any other info (or if you're feeling really bored, I babble about RGA at length in my blog).

    Carlson's would be a good option too, and I think its slightly cheaper. As far as I'm aware the main difference is that Carlson's don't separate classes into beginner and advanced.

    I train (about once a week currently) with the Carlson London school and it's 60 a month so it's quite a bit cheaper than Roger Gracie (or 7 a session on a pay as you go basis). There's no advanced/beginner classes but I don't think that's a massive problem personally.

    i visited first school on my list which is alex reid's MMA club in woking

    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/f...FighterID=5415

    more MMA focused class, alex is primarily a stand up fighter who has a defensive (return to standing asap) ground style, cant gauge much from one lesson. I enjoyed the session. But the club is pretty remote so getting their is a pain.

    "The Andy Roberts"?

    If so, everyone should train with you.

    Every good wish. (I live too far away otherwise I'd be there).

    Cheers
