I’ll also be setting up my visit to Flo / Brasa this week!
Do you train at a Chicago BJJ/Grappling/MMA academy? Do you compete regularly? Have you won local tournaments? national tournaments?
DO YOU WANT TO BE FEATURED ON THIS SITE??
I want to start hilighting some of the amazing competitors that we have in our area on the site. If you’re interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org If you’re too humble to e-mail me about yourself, recommend somebody who you train with! I already have a few of the top competitors on board so this list will grow fast!
I’m looking to put together a summer schedule of gyms and academies that I’m going to visit. I already have a few on my schedule, but the last poll was so popular, that I wanted to give everybody a chance to vote again to see where I should go.
Link this to your academies homepage, facebook page, tell people at class, etc!!! (In addition to me plastering it all over the internet like it’s my job).
Last time one gym did this and really ran away with the poll. This time, I’d love to see more people voting.
Speaking of that, if I’ve already visited your academy, vote for a friend or affiliate!
My hope is that I can visit the gyms in the order they place on the polls and have them all done by summer!
1. There’s an awesome widget on the right side of an interactive map of all of the bjj gyms in the Chicago area. It’s awesome so get on that.
2. I did some digging and put together as comprehensive a list as I could of all of the Open Mat times for academies in our area. This is not to say that there are not other open mat times at other academies, they just do not have them listed on their website.
I have also starred (**) the academies that welcome visitors to their open mat sessions to train (they either mention this on their site or I know firsthand that they do).
