    I live in sacramento and I am also trying to find somewhere to train. Ive checked out Brudda's BJJ, which is supposed to be a Gracie school. There were quite a few members there but theyre exclusively BJJ, no striking or anything. If I am gonna be paying for a membership each month I personally want to have access to punching bags and weights too. If I find any good places in sac ill post them here.

    If you want to train BJJ come check out our school www.werneckjiujitsu.com we have alot of fighters that train here: Urijah Faber, James Irvin, Scott Smith to name a few. Cassio Werneck is the instructor whose part of Brazilian Top Team. If your looking for BJJ, IMO this is one of the top schools in the area. if you want to train mma check out Capital City Fighting Alliance.

    I couldn't find anything on CCFA online. My fitness/nutrition trainer also trains Poppies Martinez though, and I think Poppies is up there training with them right now. I'm gonna see him later today and I'll try to get some details/contact info.
