I may be moving to Dallas, so what is out there in terms of BJJ training(besides Carlos Machado-I'll be a poor graduate student)

I think the Lion's Den has a school out there if you were intrested in any MMA stuff, but other than Carlos Machado, I never found any other BJJ when I lived there.

Lots of places.

There's Carlos Machado, of course.

Travis Lutter BJJ Academy (Machado Black Belt)

I think Guy Mezger's Gym (Lion's Den) doesn't explicitly teach BJJ, but goes for more no-gi submission wrestling.

I train at Machado Jiu-Jitsu, and have a friend that trains at Mohler's. Carlos teaches almost all the classes (except when he's out of town or his wife is having a kid or something).

Thanks for the help. I've heard a lot of good things about the Machado school.

125 for 2x a week, 180 for unlimited

Machado lists it as $180 a month for unlimited, but he discounts it...I think everyone who is doing unlimited is really paying $162 a month (that is what I am paying).

Night classes are usually not too crowded, tops there are usually 25-30 people there, although I've been some nights when there were as few as 8 (close to the holidays, and Thursdays always seem to be everyone's off-night).

Class mixture is pretty good, there is no beginner's and advanced class, it's all mixed together, so if you are a white belt, you'll have plenty of opportunity to roll and get tapped by blues, purples, and browns.
