    I had the same feeling the first time I went to LA. After a lot of time and trips, I'm convinced that people in LA are generally just nice.

    If I went to LA to train, and found that the people their weren't nice, I'd take that as a big indication there were a lot of issues with school, because its such an anamoly to find rude people.

    So you weren't distracted by Joe Rogan yelling, "HE'S ROCKED!" every time someone got caught in a submission?

    Joe Rogan didn't say anything. I always wonder if I should go get my phone and take a picture. I usually decide not to harass people. I saw Rogan and Hendo and decided to leave them alone. They both seemed really nice, but I wouldn't necessarily want to be bothered all the time too.

    I just paid $30 per class. I think if you do the month, there is a registration fee...$30 is not that much Hollywood BJJ was 25 and I think Tim Burrill's in Rhode Island where I used to train is also $25 drop in.

    Thanks for the Reveiw! I promised my girl I would take her out their for a week or two once she got her blue belt... and she got it like 2 months ago, lol. I guess it's time to start planning :XXsunsmil
    FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.

    Im a 10th planet practitioner

    hey whats up phrost, I bet I met you while you were there, since I have been going to Legends i.e. 10th planet since January, albeit there were some hiatuses and I don't remember doing that particular two weeks of x-guard knee-bars. Anyway I think you gave a really great review and I am really happy to have read it and here's why:
    I am totally that starry-eyed noob you were talking about, but I didn't realize it, and now I feel alot better. Like how you were saying he can get impatient and he doesn't hold your hand, you need 1 year experience, etc.- well that all applies to me. Outside of a few weeks/months of casual jits training under purple belts back in indiana, this was my first real BJJ school. I read about Eddie, bought his books, and was hooked. I even started smoking pot again, I was a total Bravo disciple, pulling gogo's on my friends and talking **** about the twister all day long. But after half a year of training there I was still completely unable to get out of 95% of any1's side mount. Seriously, it was like you put me in side control and I might as well tap cuz I just could not get out. Serious holes in my game, and I blamed myself.
    Now I think I was wrong to blame myself, everyone who is devout to that school has 1 year experience in BJJ, or more, or wrestling background. I was NEVER taught a single side control escape while I was there because it was too basic. Seriously, I never realized that this may be a problem until 6months of training there and some guy out of McRandomDojo who has basic skills just sits on me in side control and can only helplessly try the stuff I watched on youtube.

    That long rant being said, this is a great place to train if you have a very good command of basic BJJ or Judo or if you are a very good wrestler. Otherwise, you could be paying too much money to learn BJJ if your a beginner like I was. It was hard for me to figure it out, but I think the best route is to first take a year or so of BJJ from a traditional BJJ place a la Gracie before moving on to 10th planet, Machado, or Marcelo Garcia stuff.
    By the way, Eddie is a solid dude =)

    Yeah don't go up to him with your phone, especially if you have to see him again lol. I introduced myself to him, but he is a really down to earth dude who just wants to be treated like any other guy, I think he dislikes the celebrity stuff while he's at the gym.

    L.A. has a lot of friendly folks yes its true. Its just like any other place where you have nice people mixed with assholes. The only difference is that here you have a lot of people who want to "make it" in whatever industry, and they want "connections" so sometimes the niceties you see are just that... niceties. Don't shoot the messenger, but I live here, and I've seen it so yeah. Just sayin.
