    clinch academy

    Has anyone heard anything about The Clinch Academy in Frederick, MD? I drove by it today and had never noticed it til now and i can't seem to find anything on it anywhere. Any info would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Ok, since I'd rather play on the internet than work, I used a little Google action to find out about the school. Their web page is http://clinchacademy.com
    and they seem to go to and win some NAGA tournaments, and seem to compete in MMA events. Which if I were looking for a school to train in would be my main concern.

    He's wearing a black belt with a BJJ gi on his front page, and I'm sure he's a very good grappler and but he doesn't seem to be a BJJ black belt. A friend of mine told me about this place last week and I've been meaning to check it out.

    Guy is not a BJJ Black Belt so if claiming to be one then he is a fraud.

    Luke Rinehart doesn't claim to be a BJJ blackbelt.

    He's a really great guy and an excellent instructor. The Clinch is a very good place to train.

    Does anyone know what Luke's belt is? It doesn't say on his site, but with him wearing a BJJ gi and a BB, it is kinda assumed.

    Also any other news? I have only heard things about the school, but have never been,
