Detroit Jiu-jitsu academy
Anyhow, i figured i'd write a review for this school, in case anyone in south east michigan is looking for an absolutely amazing b.j.j school...
Well, in equiptment, i give it an 8. b.j.j doesn't require much equiptment, but the academy is in a (albeit large) room inside the oakwood gym facility. Oakwood gym is an amazing gym, lol. Plenty of space, good clean facilities, i only wish it was a little bit bigger...but i'm sure most people do.
For instruction, i give it a pure 11 out of 10. The school, started by Saulo Riberio (who visits and still awards rank), and continued by Chris Blanke, who earned his black-belt under Saulo. (i'll leave the credentials to the website listed above). While he doesn't do 100% of the instruction (the brown belts instruct a lot, as does one blue-belt on sunday). I must say, they lay everything out in an easy to learn fashion, and are always paying attention to answer questions and fix the minor gaps in your technique. The instructors are some of the friendliest guys i've ever met, and hell, i wouldn't even mind hanging out with them outside of training!
I'm not sure what other criteria there are, but i'll just go ahead and mention the members there as well.
Most schools have that cocky guy that thinks he's the ****, you know what i'm talking about? Not here, everyone is extremely skilled, and whats better, is instead of pummeling the guys that are less skilled, they help you through your game, they talk you through how to escape, how to sweep, how to submit. Everyone at that school is there because they love it, pure and simple.
I highly suggest for anyone, anyone at all, no matter how much skill, or how little, to come here and see for yourself, you won't be dissapointed.
how about rewriting that review in our "Dojo Reviews" section?
did i seriously do this?
I'm sorry guys...
