    My eastside list:
    Westcoast Fitness (says Renton, but really Bellevue, where I train/work) MMA
    Ring Sport United (Bellevue) MMA
    Foster BJJ (Kent, also where I train) MMA

    For BJJ in Olympia, BJJ Olympia is your best bet.

    Those are the three I'm familiar with, although I don't think there is any point to this thread since KillerChris will probably never return after his 'Iz heytz da ghey!' thread.

    Well I have returned right now and thanks for the info, I am currently in Montreal training at senshido and appreciate the info. I heard MKG is pretty good; have you had any experience there? Well its nice to see that not everyone on this forum are idiotic keyboard warriors.

    MKG is run by Andy Wilson. He's a good guy and very knowledgeable martial artist. He runs a diverse JKD kind of program. If you'd like to try lots of different stuff, it could be a good place to go. The studio is very nice.

    Being a FMA guy, I wouldn't say that this is their focus. So if you're looking for stick and knife stuff, I might look elsewhere. But for general kickboxing/fitness/mixed arts style training, it could be a good place to train. It is a bit pricey however, at $120 to $170/month.

    BTW, I don't know how familiar you are with geography, but Olympia is a pretty long distance away from Seattle to be driving back and forth for training.

    Yeah, been there seen that, but I'm not sure exactly where I will be renting a place. I heard that Andy and Taky Kimura have a good JKD school but I am not yet sure if I want to train in a concepts or original JKD school. I definitely don't want to exclusively train armed or unarmed, ground or standup, so I may end up attending multiple schools eventually, or one school that has a large variety of different classes. Then of course I can get privates when I have the money for it.
