    What are the good schools in southern Florida? I might be taking interest in a job opportunity in Fort Lauderdale or Naples, and living somewhere in between. Just for training casually, probably not fighting.

    I understand that... but why a "shitstorm" is my question, I guess.

    Does anyone know if there are any CSW affiliates down there? I think I'll look that up next.

    LOL, yeah I'm definitely excited for a chance to even visit, let alone maybe train at ATT. I just want to keep my options open and would prefer a Paulson affiliated CSW school, but who knows.

    Only CSW school I know of off the top of my head is World Martial Arts in Jacksonville (but I am sure there is atleast on down there). Its a Paulson school and I know he, Barnett, and Sherk hold seminars there

    2 separate listings and zip codes for the schools... but if they are close that just means both are too far away.

    That's ok, just looking.

    edit: and yeah, lol, that is pretty far.

    My brother was telling me he was going to join a grappling club, I'm wondering now if it was the Armory. That is Franca's school, right?

    He (my brother) lives in Port Charlotte or North Port, which is near Naples.

    ATT has many locations around Broward and Palm Beach county.

    FFA is in Miami and is quite a good team

    If yo uare up north like orlando there is a gracie barra and 2 ATT schools

    Naples I think has a gracie barra

    Jupiter has the Armory

    Hermes was opening a "Team Franca" but i dunno where

    WPB has a "Team Noguera", "ATT", I think maybe a 2nd "Armory" and an "Xtreme Couture"

    Coconut Creek is the main HQ that all the pro's train at.

    We then have subsidiary gyms. That were founded by themselves but affiliated with us (Roger Krahl's WolfPack, etc..) then there our gyms that we opened up as subsidiaries that are taught by our fighters.

    In south FL I think there are like 10 to 15 ATT schools. we got schools in Vega, CT, Cali etc...
