I'm sorry, I'm from Israel in case this is a silly question.
But doesn't Oaklahoma have a big wrestilng community? If you can't find a BJJ/Judo/Sambo instructor, what's wrong with a solid wrestling coach to add to your grappling knowledge.
Anyway, it's good to hear you're making sure your school keeps improving.
I gather Oklahomo is a fairly large state, so things tend to be quite spread out. Like someone in Britain hoping a Judoka from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne can pop in an help with classes in Brighton every now and then.
(p.s. My Israeli geography is too poor for me to make that more culturally relevant, soory)
(p.p.s - just noticed my spelling of OK. That's a keeper...they make eye contact...)
Thank you OP for ......
1) having an open mind
2) being successfull, and showing how having an open mind can improve your school not take away from it
I hope you pay it forward and keep being an example for other schools!
I though this was going to be a Goatse thread or something but i was pleasantly surprised.

I thought we were fine due to our heavy contact, very non-traditional style of sparring, but I was wrong. I hate the fact that Karate(no matter the style) gets a bad rap and I want to fix it. Even if it is one school at a time.
