Right,

So I'm shopping around for a way to spend my hard earned cash on MMA when I find this site:

http://www.rebellionjj.com/

Now, it looks good, but IS it good?

I met a guy who trains here and he's a wuss bag who can't roll. Mind you, I'm sure the instructors are good...

Anyone been there? Reviews? Comments about the site?

Opinions?

Seems fine to me.

If the head instructor is a brown belt under Pedro Soares, then it sounds legit to me. I like the website too.

Werd. Johnny is corredt.

You can't judge a school by one student. Go and train.

My BJJ-obsessed friend trains at the downtown location all the time. So does Repulsive Monkey I believe. I've heard nothing but good things. Plus, Omar's nickname is "The Backpack". How can you not at least try the open mat?


Do you live up near that area?

Two blocks north of my old training hall. And 4-5 blocks south of CT's dojo.
I'll be checking it out sometime when I get back to town.

Seems like a good place unless their website is a total lie...

They even teach Thai boxing, so you know the striking they teach will be good.

Heh, Shuma, you got your question ignored! Rather rude I'd say.


BTW, Stillkicking, you mind writing a report on your experience there? Thanks.

He can train there instead of here if he wants. More mat space for me :cool:

Was his question aimed at me? Oops.

In answer to your question: I live in the east end, bro.

Heading up to rebellion JJ will be a pain in the ass, but I've travelled further for decent instruction.

Hope that clears it up.

Cheers.

Sorry boyz, gotta bring this thread back to life for a sec.

I have NOT been able to get to RebllionJJ yet. BUT I am planning on visiting their "partner school" downtown.

Check this site. What do you guys think about it?

http://www.bjj.ca/

Looks like it's a "little brother" school where the Rebllion big boys send their fledging instructors. HOWEVER, I could be wrong.

I'm going to check it out near the end of this week. If it looks good, I'm joining up.

Your thoughts on the website would be much appreciated. They claim to have affiliation with Carlson Gracie Team/Marcus Soares.

What do you think about that?

Cheers!

P.S...a lot of the instructors seem to have Korean martial arts backgrounds too..so I'm a little sketchy on hooking up with these guys. Thoughts?

It looks good to me, after you check it out be sure to write a report. Although if you go you might want to borrow a gi from a friend, usually you don't want to use the "loaner gi."
