    Cool man, I live in plymouth/canton area. I mapquested flint to the place im at and it's an hour away and a place I know of in walled lake is an hour away as well.

    Check out eastwestmartialarts.com. That's where I train for the most part. Ryan is a black belt under the Machado and has been training for 18 years. Nicest guy you could meet. There are always blacks and browns there as well. Lots of experience and I only have good things to say about it.

    Unfortunately the closest place is 30 miles away but that's not really that far. I'm considering driving 30 miles myself to a place that does real BJJ

    http://www.warriorway.com/

    It looks nice though and it's huge

    We're talking about >90 miles, and I would want to go at least 3 times a week. With gas prices so high (despite the recent decrease), summer school tuition and rent i would be financially unable to do it.

    I live in round rock and both my schools are in south austin. I'll be moving closer in 4 months or so, however.

    and I meant it's 25 miles 1 way to each of my schools, 50 miles round trip. I train 6 days a week.
