Where should I visit next??? (part deux)

by Brendan on May 5, 2011

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!

In summary (tl;dr):

  1. Like us on facebook.
  2. Join the mailing list.
  3. Vote in the poll below.
  4. Check out the recent open mat times post.
  5. Tell your friends to vote in the poll.
  6. Be excellent to eachother.

Have everybody from your academy visit the site and vote! We already have quite a few votes for GB Chicago, but I want over 100 votes before I close the poll!

They look like so much fun! I’ve been looking at so many cool facebook pictures! Whats the best way to get in touch with Luiz?

The best way would be to call monkey bar gym chicago (312) 488-1915. Luiz originally taught in Brazil and had a number of academies in the US that he came to give seminars to every couple of months. He just moved from Brazil to Chicago about 3 months ago and opened up the academy there in the new Monkey Bar Gym. Currently it is growing really fast and a lot of guys have left their previous academies to train with Luiz.

Right on! Andre spent a while training with us in Hammond, IN. In fact, one of my first experiences with mma (five years ago) was having to spar with him and get straight ankle locked and punched in the face simultaneously. Great stuff!!
