Basically this is the story. Ever since I was 6 I loved mma..it all started from the movie bloodsport and me seeing royce gracie tap out what seemed to me half of the population in the mid 1990s. I took up karate when i was like 8 or something and became a brown belt. Ofcourse I had little if any knowledge on actual mma..it was more of a gracefull dancing type art. Then I took up judo with a coach who was very respected within russia and held many titles. I went for a year or so and fell in love but then I got into an accident and could not go any longer. 3 years have passed and I cant miss it enough...Everyday im thinking about mma weather it is bjj muy thai judo or whatever and decided this summer im not holding back and NEED to find a good mma school. I am like 5 foot 9, weigh about 180 with like 13 percent bodyfat and am sort of in shape(got kicked out of the gym for 3 months so i gained some fat)..I would really appreciate if anyone would be kind enough to direct me to a good mma school in brooklyn new york, or a good judo/sambo/bjj school. Theres a bjj school owned by a brown belt under renzo gracie but I am a bit skeptical on this. thanks and sorry for this long ramble.
