Been out of martial arts for about a year now. I feel so out of shape and really want something new to keep myself busy with. Yes, I know about Megaton, but I'd really like to know if there are any other schools here that are good. If I wanted Megaton as an answer then I wouldn't have signed up for this site. I know he's one of the best teachers in the state, but he's also very expensive and not close to me.

Does anyone have any insight?

Please do not cross post threads, MrKillerGarcian. One thread per topic.

I moved your thread to Newbietown because it will receive more attention here, and because that's where new members typically introduce themselves and ask questions like, "Where can I find a good school?".

Welcome to Bullshido.

You can check out the Arizona Center for Mixed Martial Arts in Phoenix, Arizona. Never been therer myself. But the guy has a lot of basic BJJ techique videos on youtube that are pretty good. The head instructor is a Black Belt under Carlos Gracie Jr.

Thank you, I had no idea where to post my inquiry so I posted it everywhere I suspected would be productive. Sorry if that was cumbersome.

It is Fake

I’ve been living and training in Arizona since I moved here in 1996. The following is a pretty comprehensive list of grappling, mma, and a few boxing and kickboxing schools available in the Phoenix (and Tucson) area. I might have missed a few but the way schools have been opening (and closing) around here it’s hard to keep track of them all.

Be forewarned Arizona is a hot bed of bullshido, I would venture that a good 90% of the schools around here are crap. Every guy with mats and some rental space (or garage) has some sort of “school” or “fight team” now. Every other Karate and TKD school around now claims to be offering “grappling” or “mma” classes too. There are some real bullshit artists out there trying to cash in on the current mma boom, although I imagine you could probably make that same claim about martial arts in general and not be too far off.

IIF nailed it with a comprehesive list, but if you gave us some specifics on what you're looking for we could probably help you dial i in some.

Choi's Black Belt Academy looks... uh, interesting! http://www.weschois.net/index_kicks.jpg

I like a lot of schools, specially Hawaiian Kempo. There's some Kajukenbo in Phoenix area but the only schools I know of are out in Mesa or Gilbert. They bring in the old Hawaiian guys for testing, so they are probably OK, but probably out too far.
