 Definitely recommend Master Luis Palhares. I've been to his school many times, he has great guys and gals, plus you can't beat 7th Degree Coral Belt under Rickson Gracie.

Heres his website:
http://www.luizpalharesjiujitsu.com/

He has two locations, One is in Jacksonville (where he teaches) the other is in Orange Park. Both are towards the south end of Jacksonville.

I've rolled at Gracie Barra South Jax on business trips. It's a great school with a wonderful vibe. Check it out at http://www.gbsjax.com/

All the already mentioned schools are very good but also check out


Thetrainingyard.com
Great people & lots of high ranking belts always willing to roll

mma4florida.com
About 40 mins away in St Augustine but well worth the trip to train with a 3rd degree Relson BB in Phil Cardella

Also check out combat athletix in Orange park  now a Relson school with 2 bad ass black belts in Carlos Varona & Smiley 


Bulldog boxing off of Phillips is also a great place.

You will not encounter any politics or BS at any of these gyms

I have been with Luiz for five or six years so you know what my recommendation is!

Anyway, you're in luck because there is a tournament this weekend. You can come and meet people from all the local schools.

Had a private with Palhares years back. Awesome BJJ. Dropped in at Victor Huber's (under Royler) a couple years back a handful of times, and really enjoyed his classes too. You got Smiley at Combat Athletix in Orange Park as well. Heard good things about the Training Yard as well. Nader (black under Devine) teaches at two different places in Jax too. A handful of other places with some BJJ down there too, but I don't have any personal experience with them. Jax is so spread out you may just have to go with who is closest since your just dropping in.

I'll be seeing Devine next Saturday myself.

I train at Victor Huber's school (Gracie Humaita) in Atlantic Beach. Great environment, friendly people, and his instruction is outstanding.

I might be a little drive from JAX but youre always welcome to a first free class. www.MMA4FLORIDA.com

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Relson-Gracie-Jiu-Jitsu-St-Augustine/151069344950986

Plenty of great training in JAX area to explore. I would see where is closest to where you are and build a good spot for your growth, support the place as well, don't just bounce around collecting free classes.

Hows ATTJax doing? I went by a few weeks ago and they were closed. I heard there are new trainers also. Who's teaching up there other than Mike? Thanks!
