I know it is a kickboxing gym but did his BJJ program expand? Last i heard, they had a megaton blue belt teaching 4 or so guys and had plans to bring in a brown belt. Did this ever happen? Either way, how many students currently attend the BJJ classes & what style do they teach (fancy gi moves or sub-wrestling/street style)?

Until I jacked my knee I was training there. (was going to get miniscus surgery, but have decided on physical therapy instead.) You could not ask for a better, more down-to-earth guy than Rick. He had definitely showed me a lot more to the standup game than I came in with. While I was training there, I quickly got into shape. Eddie Sanchez's BJJ class is great, I have trained with Eddie many times, and we have been friends for years. They train mostly no gi. Eddie is a brown under Ricco, and he brings in lots of guys to train. I have seen Dean Lister, Ricco Rodriguez, and Jason Chambers there just to name a few.

Thanks for all the info! Is there a website for this gym up at all? What is the schedule, fees, etc? I'm relocating from central Illinois and can't wait to find a quality gym out there. There aren't many options where I live. Thanks in advance!
