Chris David received his Purple Belt from Prof Carlos "Caique" Enrique Elias. There is also a variant of Jiu Jitsu being taught at the Des Moines Mixed Martial Arts Academy. The instructor would be Josh Neer, no belt, but a pretty good technician on the ground. Ron

Ok, there's the list so far. Any others? I was pretty sure there was a place in Council Bluffs, but I don't know anything about it.

I think that contacts and addresses would be a plus as well for when you are intown or traveling and can ge to know other grapplers from Iowa.  Don't forget Miletich's in the list.

Ok, once again here's the current list. I'm short of a lot of contact information. Devon, if you should help me out on the Cedar Rapids side that'd be cool. I've had a few people e-mail me from Iowa City looking for a place to train and would like for them to be able to contact you guys if they wanted to join up. This is still just a rough list, I wouldn't mind cleaning it up as time goes on. Any other places you guys know about let me know and I'll add it.

Not to HiJack this thread, but I am jealous that Devon gets to roll with LilJJChick. Just watch out when Devon lets her get the triangle sunk and makes absolutely no attempt to escape. Ya dirty bastid. Ron

LilJJChick, You guys still work out on Saturdays? If so, I can head up there not this weekend, but next and get my shirt. What time do you guys work out? Ron

Ron, me and Shanon usually work out around 11AM depending on what is going on with our families.  If you are coming up, I can let the wife know and I am pretty sure I can be there.

11am? Maybe I can make that this week too. That'd be a nice extra workout.

It would not be this weekend, but next weekend. I have a ton of things to do this weekend and would be pushing it way too close to try to come out this weekend. See, leaving my shirt up there gives me a reason to come up there just to get it and get a work out in at the same time. Ron

And how...but on that note. Anyone have the scoop on Des Moines Extreme? I don't know anything about them except for the fact that they do Jiu-Jitsu. Plus if anyone could fill the gaps in the list that'd be cool too.

DMEF does more of what I would consider a freestyle fighting. They do ground work, they do stand up and each of the guys there has a specific skill set that they bring to the table. If you what more details do to the following forum and ask, they will be sure to help you out. http: //sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/desmoinesextremefighting/ Ron

Warfrog and Danny A would be your best contacts.  They train out of the Badger's Den and the Frog Pad.  Basically Ronnie and Dan's basements.  Cool set up though.  Good resource for somewhere to go and train as well.
