    I was at the gym (regular workout kind) today hitting the heavy bag they have in the back and a couple guys walk in that I could tell knew what they were doing. I started talking to them and they told me about this brazilian jiu-jitsu gym that is hidden here in town. I was able to catch a class today and watch them. I was talking to the two instructors there and they said that they have it hidden and dont advertise on purpose because they dont want to many people, they are both black belts. Everyone there was real friendly and came and talked to me. I start on sunday :wiggle:

    50 a month. There arent very many people that go there (this isnt exactly a huge town). He said that they just ask for enough to pay the rent and other bills.

    Cant remeber right now, I am terrible with names. One of their last names is brunson, I remeber that because I was looking at the trophies and a plaque on the wall displaying his black belt

    Here is the other one, my mistake he is only a purple belt. Guess I assumed when talking to the other instructor. Found him on the Gracie Barra website
