    How much do you guys pay for it. I want to take it, but most of the places are fairly expensive and require me to sign a contract.

    I'd like to. I've learned a few submissions from second hand sources and videos, but I'd love to get something more personal.

    congrats by the way, and thats a great way of displaying your medals. what is that exactly? thats not a t shirt in the case with the medal is it?

    i never thought of doing that with my medals, i just kind of have them all laying on a desk in a room. i am definitely going to do this

    dope. you should man, you dont necessarily have to do gi to compete in grappling tournies though. most of them have gi and no gi divisions but its way more fun to compete in both. i love gi way more. for some reason im way better in gi than in no gi

    thanks brotha..


    to everyone else with regards to Gi & No Gi...

    you really need to do both.. but i would start off in Gi.. why? because that is where all the technique is... think of all the best No Gi fighters in world.. they all started in Gi..


    Minitaro Nogeria..
    Richardo Arona..
    Wanderlie Silva
    Gonzaga..
    Jacare...

    all do Gi... if you have a chance to do Gi.. do it.. if you have a chance to do both... Do them both...

    How much do you guys pay for BJJ per month? I found a place by me, but it is 200 bucks a month. Is that normal?
