Well, why don't you go check those schools out and then get back to us.And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

checked out nolabjj - was not bad. only a purple belt teachin, but he's an active fighter and he knows what he's doin. they were a little arrogant bout their technique, but its a decent place. i recommmend. only warning - rolling is very organized, since there is not that much space, i'm used to just goin around and rolling, this was all organized by the teacher. And at the end they had this sort of battle royale - two teams each just tap out as many from the other as they can. was funny - but it was BJJ against multiple atttackers - sorta i guees on the "street" guys wouldnt just use sport BJJ

I rolled with a visiting blue belt from NOLA BJJ and he was a very cool guy. I got zero attitude from him. Sorry you didn't have the same experience.
