will be looking at a school near by me. see how their training is. I like grappling & ground work. The Brazilians are good fighters and not only in the jungle .
yeah i think Luta Livre is nearly the same as BJJ. I have a Judo background but over the last years have concentrated on Wing Tsun (wing chun). yes i contacted a school in Hannover & they wrote back. There is a school just up the road though so will have a look there first.BJJ is awesome, I just don't enjoy it nearly as much as I do kickboxing.
You shouldn't have an issue finding a gym though, BJJ is in vogue these days.
