Toilet Steak™ -
chaseb1 - We would be looking in greenbrier, Hendersonville, gallatin, whitehouse, mt. juliet....... not too familiar with the area but have restrictions on work vehicle, can only be used for work. so i'd have to leave, retrieve personal vehicle and then leave for class (if i could beat traffic). Not sure if driving downtown would be viable with traffic so looking for options.
Had seen the academy didn't know if it was a reputable school (no offense, have never been in the area). Have heard nothing but great things about Shawn Hammonds being a great person and teacher.
Shawn isnt with Nashville MMA anymore. Cant stress enough if you're anywhere near a 20 mile radius to check out Profectus BJJ in Brentwood. Jeremy Akin is an incredibly underated instructor with an amazing place.
I know for a fact that Shawn is still affiliated with NashvilleMMA.
He still owns a small piece of the gym, and every black belt there is affiliated with him. He was training for Master's Worlds there two weeks ago, and from what I understand, runs morning classes 2 or 3 times a week.
The Academy is also affiliated with Shawn and is ran by a Shawn Hammonds black belt. Very convenient for you, if you end up in Greenbrier, Hendersonville, or White House.
