Id be slightly worried about a schools who's first thing to offer you is "relaxation & meditation", but they have a grappling program too which means they arent totally in the dark. They also have sites like Machado BJJ and Full Contact Fighter linked. So maybe it would be a great school, I would see if they have a free week of classes or something you can take and then decide for yourself. Cant hurt to try it, right?

"Dude, don't go there. They teach Lameco Escrima."

The Lameco System
(Edgar Sulite 1957-1997)
In 1981Edgar Sulite created the Lameco System of Eskrima. The name Lameco is actually three words joined together.
La = Largo (long) me = Medio (Middle) co = Corto (close)
All the ranges you will fall into in combat. Lameco uses primarily Double and single Stick, Double and single Dagger, Stick and Dagger, Sword, Staff, Handkerchief, and Empty Hands. Lameco Eskrima is a synthesis of five major and 6 minor systems of Eskrima.
Edgar created training drills that he called Labon Laro (Play Fighting). Labon Laro would allow the practitioner to come as close to real combat as possible with out injury, it was also designed to make you get an uncountable number of repetitions in, in a short period of time. Following the theory "repetition is the key to success". Edgar was always looking for unique training methods to improve Lameco. He devised training armor for the hand and forearms that let the practitioners train more realistically.
On April 10th 1997, the Filipino Martial Arts world suffered a major loss. Punong Guro (Head Instructor) Edgar G. Sulite passed away due to complications from a stroke that he had suffered two weeks prior to his death. Edgar Sulite was the founder of the Lameco system of Eskrima.

E, if you go, let us know what you think. I heard from a friend that they require contracts so I never went.
