Fredericton Brazillian Jujitsu Academy, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada
My MT school doesn't have a website yet, but they run under the same gym. We're Fredericton's only BJJ and MMA gym, and we've got a brand spankin new, state of the art gym with 1200 sq feet of mat space, + punching bags and workout impiments (medicine balls, ect.). Our owner and teacher, Dana Dickenson, is no pushover and has placed highly in various Thai Boxing and Submission Grappling competitions. He's trained with some of the best in Canada (the first picture is of him with GSP), and he's eager enough to pass it on to us. We're a little bit low in numbers, but we're just getting started. Bullshido has a stranglehold on our little city, and we're the first step to sweeping it out. :disgust:
I'm assuming that those pictures are not from your school.
And why is it called "Fredericton Brazillian Jujitsu Academy, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada" but you call it a MT school?

Becuase my MT school runs out of the same gym, but with a different instructor. He doesn't have a website.
Weird, the reason I said that I thought that the pics weren't from your club was because you said you had low numbers:

Actually, that was a seminar we had close to our opening. Great turnout :)
You might notice that nobody is wearing gis, while this is in fact not no-gi wednsday.
Sorry, I'm confused. Are your reviewing a MT school that shares mat space with a BJJ school?
What, exactly, do students of your school get training in for there monthly fee?

The guy who opened the club has a good Thai coach, so a lot of us took that up too. Dana is not the Thai coach. For our $60 per month, we get three two-hour classes of BJJ per week.
Thanks. That clears it up. I could not find Dana's BJJ history anywhere online. Do you know who his BJJ training has been under?
Is this the same Dana that was competing as beginner in 2006.
Wait wait wait! Most of those pictures are from Toronto BJJ...what gives?
