Hey I'm just getting into BJJ and am from the Philadelphia area. Looking to train at Balance Jiu-Jitsu which is run by Phil Migliarese. Been a pretty big fan of MMA for a while and BJJ always really interested so I finally am deciding to take the plunge and start training.

Welcome to Bullshido!


Hey I'm just getting into BJJ

You might find this BJJ Beginner FAQ (http://slideyfoot.blogspot.com/2006/10/bjj-beginner-faq.html) useful, as a new student in BJJ.

As I mention in that FAQ, for further reading on BJJ, I'd recommend the following threads:

Thanks for the welcome guys. I've been looking at all the stuff slidey linked to and I am super excited to get over to Balance and start training. A little nervous but the eagerness to learn is far greater.
