    BJJ school questions - Maryland

    I thought there used to be a school forum, maybe in Newbietown, but this is specifically a BJJ post so I'm putting it here.

    In general, I'm finally doing some training with a couple of friends for striking stuff - one I'm bringing up to speed in basic generic kickboxing, one is into the FMA so we're working that.

    Slowly, and I'm no expert, but I've done enough over the years to be qualified for beginner training. It's nothing fancy, but I'm starting to feel halfway competent again.

    My ground game still sucks, though. As in, it's almost nonexistent.

    So I'm looking at MMA and BJJ schools near me.

    I'm in Gaithersburg, MD, and there's a relatively new place in town that I haven't had a chance to visit yet. Brazu Academy, http://www.brazuacademy.com/, looks like they're mainly Gracie linege.

    Anyone know them, have opinions or experiences to share?

    Probably can't get in to see them for a few weeks at least, but Bullshido is always a good place to ask!

    So let me know what the scoop is - no flames, please?

    A quick check of the instructors looks pretty legit (at least the BJJ guys). Strong tournament records etc. And the Carlson Gracie line is a good one, if I remember right (I am not a BJJ guy).

    So, assuming the claims of competition record and BJJ lineage are accurate (I don't see a reason to think otherwise) they look like a good spot.

    Smarter, more experienced BJJ guys can feel free to tell me I am wrong.

        Thanks, Plasma - should have checked Sherdog to start with.

        So, following up, anybody know about the Yamasaki program over in the Kentlands? I noticed that the TKD school there was advertising BJJ classes. Started maybe last year, I did check and see that it was somehow Yamasaki-affiliated. That right there is a plus for me, I've been around here for a while and never heard anything negative about them.

        I did *not* know all that about Lloyd Irvin though - kind of an eye opener!
