    If so, how are the facilities (mat space, showers? cage?)
    Pricing
    How are the people and instruction

    Are there any guys who fight MMA at NewBreed


    Thinking about making a switch. The past 8/10 times I've been to extreme couture for class, no teacher showed up and it was just open mat.

    :rofl: @ no one giving a shit at xtreme couture.

    ive trained at the new breed location in socal. loved it. we used to get a lot of visitors from chicago and our black belts would travel out to chicago and portland pretty often.
    bjj is its main focus, but some do compete in mma.

    Yea, its kinda disappointing. People just stopped caring. I really like the facilities, the other people who train, and the location and distance. But its really frustrating to come out, and then not even have class. I don't do muay thai but the muay thai teacher has been missing for about 3 weeks now.

    long mat space
    100 a month
    nice people (asians, jewish)
    brown belt main instructor (cool guy, Mark)

    are you making the switch because of MMA or for BJJ? Dont do it for MMA

    Great place, great attitudes, great leadership.

    I don't shower there so I cannot comment on that portion.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I would like to do MMA eventuall, that is my main goal.
    However, I like grappling over striking and would prefer that to be my "go to" style.

    No I did not have to sign a contract with XC. You just have to give a month notice before they stop the automatic withdrawal.
    They claim they are hiring all new teachers, I will give it till the end of august, no new teachers, I will switch. I want to give them a chance because the owner and everyone else is really nice, but its pointless to go to class and then not learn.


    does johhny ramirez still teach there? saw some clips of him and he looks sick, giving up a size advantage too

    You wouldn't believe the shower place at my old gym, it was basically a hole in the wall. I thought for the longest time it was just a closet because it had the bucket and mop stored in there. Then I saw someone go in with a towel and came out all wet. I was like :wtf:

    He's not really the instructor here. He'll participate in Chicago grappling tournaments though.

    :ugh: Our old place wasn't as bad as yours though.

    Well Newbreed's former location was in a gym gym. Workout gym, MT classes, Cycling classes, Boxing, you name it. It wasn't just BJJ, so it had a lot of members. The Men's bathroom had a shower, a urnial, 2 bathroom stalls and a sink. The shower was next to the sink, so you'd be standing less than 2 inches from a naked guy if you wanted to wash your hands. The bathroom stalls were always broken with horse shit in them. If we ever wanted to change for class, I'd say 3 people max could fit in it. Even with 3, it was so cramped no one could enter the bathroom. Fucking mess man.

    it really sucks when that sort of thing happens with instructors. One of the reasons I quit kempo was because my instructor moved and I didn't like the way the next one taught. Went from a hardcore instructor to a moron who eventually got fired for doing stupid shit.

    Ya, it is located in a high class fitness center. great locker room and showers, and each shower had soap and shampoo dispensers. Im also contemplating the move to there, its where I first trained.

    Carlson Jr just fired an instructor and a lot of the students are leaving because of that. It is a great fitness center in a great area. Just ask around with the drama and notice the attitude/morale with the students. Plus it's $150 a month.

    I believe Carlson just went through all kinds of shit at his school here in Murrieta,Ca and had to split ties and open his own gym down the road.
