Open Mat times!!

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).


I wanted to specify because I would not want people showing up to academies that had open mat sessions for members only.  Instructors, if I have missed your academy’s open mat time or if it is open to visitors and I do not have that listed, please please please let me know. I certainly hope there are more than I have listed right now.
