    15-20 minutes, depending on traffic. 5 minutes would be awesome. One dude at the school is within walking distance, bastard.

    well, you've been doing this for a while so you have to be picky with your gym :dunno:

    it shouldn't matter much if you are new to BJJ (blue belt and below)

    why not :)

    they have that at check mat in la habra too. it kinda sucks though because too many people opt to sit out during sparring on those things. the whites and some of the blues at my gym are pretty wussy :hs:

    Like 10 minutes out in the car. :dunno: Close enough to be convenient, but not close enough to ride a bike or walk.

    Where i live doesn't have too many BJJ gyms. If i want to go to Braulio's I have to drive at least an hour.

    Arkansas: 40 minutes on the interstate with no traffic.
    Here: Depends on where I train. Could be a five minute walk, could be an hour bus ride. Place where I'll train the most is like an hour walking, not bad.

    5 minute ride down the highway. My gym is very close, it's nice like that. Helps keep me motivated by not having to drive 40 minutes to class and back.
