I am soon to moving to ohio. (somewhere around findlay).

Are there any BJJ, submission grappling, or mma places in the area?

Thanks.

You've got Wreckroom Athletics in Ashland, OH, but better bring your A game. They've got some big hitters there. Cody Stevens will probably get a WEC shot if my hunches are correct. They'll expect alot of committment from you.There is a team, or a fighter (good fighter) out of Findley, I just can't remember who it is (or what the team is).There's also Devil Dog MMA near Bowling Green, but I don't know much about them other than one of their 205's who has potential.

Relson Gracie has some BJJ schools around the Columbus area and so does Geroge Gurgel. I think George has a good number of schools around Columbus/Cincy, so go to his website for a list of schools. Both George and Relson have very high standards so all of their schools should be good at a minimum.

Get on the NAAFS website and go to the forum section and click on NAAFS discussion and you can ask questions about Findley and school and etc.

I don't know much about BG clubs, only what I previously mentioned. I know they've got something going on there as far as MMA goes.

If it were me, I'd drive to get with Relson Gracie's North Columbus School,or with Dustin Ware at IMB--Columbus, but that's only if you're serious about rolling.

As far as the NAAFS website, make sure you browser settings accept "cookies" for NAAFS forum registration.

Team Relson-4 Gracie Black Belts, 6 brown belts, about 10 or more purple belts, and enough blue belts to keep you busy for awhile. All under one roof. Not to mention, the 1st BJJ school in the state, the founder, Dr. Jeff Hudson (chiropractor) and 2nd degree black belt under Relson Gracie has also logged more mat hours with Relson Gracie and the rest of Helio's son's (try 6 figures in private lessons!) than anyone else in the world. Add to that there is no ego, no tough guy crap, just the best jiu jitsu in the world. Real for self defense too, not just sporty sport moves that WILL get you killed.

In Perrysburg there is "John Penny's Black Belt Acadamy" rather popular in the area and close without driving to Columbus. Hope this helps, You said you had mats?

You are kinda screwed living in Findlay. Saulo's in Toledo is awesome but kinda far (at least 45-50 minutes from Findlay, probably an hour). If you live in BG then Saulo's is pretty doable (around 25-30 minutes) and they have more BB's on a regular basis than you'd ever imagine could be in Toledo, OH. Columbus is way too fucking far to drive on a regular basis. I almost forgot Saulo has an affiliate in Lima Jeremy Harris - myspace.com/srjjatriangleclub - Lima, OH


Granted, I haven't lived in NW OH for a while and there MIGHT be some new places.

 Did you ever stop by my gym in Grove City?  We are only 10 min from downtown, have about 80 students, 2 BJJ Brown Belt, a Muay Thai coach from SITYODTONG, and a great training environment.  Oh, and our dues are only $75 a month for Unlimited Training!

A little about me...I am the VP for Team Jorge Gurgel, Owner of the OHIO GRAPPLING CHALLENGE, and I serve as the Fight Coordinator for the GAMENESS FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (based out of Nashville, TN).
