    Sounds pretty good, but need more info. School only monday and thursday?

    Were you the person that lives in Mich? If so I'm not familiar with any schools like that around here.

    Integrated american JJ is the part that sounds a little suspicious.

    I dunno I've heard some good stuff about American Ju-Jitsu, supposedly it's not BS. Whether this is the same AJJ that I've heard about is unknown.

    I don't think I've heard of American JJ at all, I am just assuming he meant Japanese JJ. We have a club in our school, and at the local YMCA for JJJ... They do not roll with each other at all and only practice throws and wristlocks without resistance. I don't know, I wouldn't really want to waste my time like that.

    There is an american JJ school here in kansas city. They train a lot of mma at the school and have put out a lot of fighters, but out of all the times of seen an AJJ guy on the ground at local fights here, there ground game is HORRID.

    I train BJJ, and every once and a while someone will come down from ajj to train a couple nights with us to see what it's like what the difference is, almost 99% of the time the first thing out of their mouth after technique time is wow...this is a lot more technical than ajj, they seem to work on a lot of the basics stuff only there. Straight armbars, mabey a triangle etc etc...Again i have probably seen 10-15 fighters from that school fight and have only been impressed with the ground game of one of them, and he's a friend of mine. Id go bjj all the way for the money.

    AJJ has only been around for 9 years...

    Sister/affiliated schools teach the same curriculum that their BJJ schools teach where in this case they have two black belts. It kind of sucks that it's only 2 days a week though.
