I've always heard great things about Shawn. A few of his former students have moved down to Carbondale for school and ended up training with me. They knew what they were doing.

Robb from Edwardsville - I've got the same problem as Rich Santoro (2 kids, law job, and not enough time to train). Anyone know of any training opportunities in the Edwardsville/Collinsville area? Vaghi's school is in south St. Louis, but that's 1+ hours each way for me.

Myles Vives, moved to Chicago about two weeks ago. I am under New Breed Academy (John Ouano/Johnny Ramirez) and the BJJ Revolution Team (Rodrigo Medeiros) in Cali, and train with the Carlson Team here. OyamaFighter (Alex), Who are the instructors going to be there? I heard from an old friend I used to do Muay Thai with years ago here, that Tim Tokarz is working/training with you guys? Please give him my regards. Rich, How's it going? I hope all is well!

The facility is incredible. We should be open on Monday the 18th. We will have muay thai, bjj, and MMA training. plus boxing 2x a week. We will have a bunch of info up at www.teamoyama.tv in a few days. this place is soooo sick, we will be having other Team oyama fighters out every month to do training and instructing. Rampage will be out to do a seminar after his fight with Wanderlei at the end of the month too. there will be some news out about it in the UG forum and on sherdog in a few weeks. come check us out!!

I haven't been to GMAP in Springfield ( http://www.gmapfights.com ) yet, but I hear good things. Anybody here know of them? Subfighter, GMAP's head instructor apparently trained with Mike Griffin. Guy named Greg Giddings, his profile on the website says a brown belt in Kajukenbo under Mr. Griffin. Do you know GMAP? Recommend them?

Gmap is/was a good school. Now its run by Scott Ward I dont think Giddings trains in there. If I were you I would go to Decatur and train at Rienhardts mixed martial arts academy. The head instructor is Jason Reinhardt who is a black belt under both Mike Griffin and Pat Miletich plus a very successful professional fighter. Laverne Clark and a few other up and coming fighters train there.

Gregg Giddings is a great guy and a great instructor. Jason Reinhardt is also top notch... either guy would be great to train with.
