    There is Marcelo Alonzo's and Gracie Barra. Both are great schools. Google them to find the websites.

    Yep. In addition to Marcelo Alonso BJJ (http://www.mabjj.com) in Fremont (where I train at), there's the Gracie Barra in Ballard (http://www.ballardbjj.com/), the, uh, other Gracie Barra school in Southish Seattle (http://www.bjjseattle.com/), and the Northwest Jiu Jitsu Academy (http://www.nwjja.com/). There's a Pedro Sauer affiliate up near Everett as well (http://www.nwbjj.com/).

    Those are the ones off the top of my head, at least.

    If you're going to the UW, there a great place at like 54th and University. Real inexpensive to train there, top notch atmosphere, and BJJ/Judo/Sambo. Good ****. Aaron Fields is the man you want.

    (Disclaimer - I don't train there myself as it's a touch far. I've met/stalked Aaron before and he seems decent.)

    In addition to what's already been mentioned above, there are several school databases you could try. For example, for BJJ:

    TrainJiuJitsu.com
    bjjMap.com
    Gym Database (BJJ, MMA etc)

    As somebody new to BJJ, you might find this BJJ Beginner FAQ useful.

    As I mention in that FAQ, for further reading on BJJ, I'd recommend the following threads:

    Training, Stagnation and Tapping
    Maximizing what you get out of rolling
    Protecting Yourself During Sparring
    Grappling Basic Principles
    Advice for Noobs
    First Day Lesson
    Fundamental 5
    Obvious Epiphanies

    And the following articles:

    Nuggets of Advice

    Your welcome to stop by our gym or contact me directly if you have any questions.

    As SFGOON said, we don't play by one particular ruleset. Dogma kills, being well rounded both ground and standing is the key. The truth is we practice with a Sombo model. Anybody who has trained with us will tell you we don't leave anything out.

    In addition, we are a not for profit venture. My bills are not riding on another member. Everything we bring in goes back to the club itself. Our going rate is well below the average, becasue I believe that grappling is a blue collar venture and I try to keep the cost about the same as my coaches did for me.

    We have a number of guys from all the local BJJ gyms and many of the local judo gyms, as well as a small army of wrestlers in our gym.

    If BJJ is your exlcusive interest, I would check out NW Jiu Jitsu, Brian is a great guy, or Barra. We have guys from both gyms working in our gym as well, all good fellas, who know how to practice. I don't know many folks from Alonso's place, so I can't comment.


    Regards,
    Aaron Fields
