Hey! New to BJJ and got directed to this forum while looking for school reviews.

Any info you could provide on BJJ schools in the Atlanta area (looks like a strong Alliance contingency here) would be great.

Thanks!

So willieo, you decided to go ahead and register huh? Cool. Don't forget to review your dojo (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=83).

Great. All the "Mcdojo" talk on here, while funny, kinda spooked me about the whole thing. I don't want to get hoodwinked.

LOL, you planning on going to Alliance? 3 of the Mega throwdowns have been held in Atlanta BTW.

Alliance is the word on the street, but I'm trying to get the widest range of opinions. Tiger Academy was also recommended. They both seem to have their positives and negatives.

I'll probably go to watch a Throwdown, eventually. Not sure if its for me.

Thanks, those look pretty helpful.

Nothing is worse than being "that new guy".

I'm subscribing to this thread so I can find slideyfoot's post again when I need it. That collection of advice is GOLD.

Me trying "the new girl" would be awkward for many, many reasons....
