Whats up compadres i was wondering what to look for when picking a place to learn BJJ.. ? The closest place to me is ran by instructors who trained with some guy named Jorge Gurgel with Team Ground Zero? Does that ring a bell to anyone.... ?? Should i be looking for any kind of certifications if so what? Thanks for the reply's in advance.

here is what the website says about the school
Besides Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we also cross-train in Judo, Boxing, Submission Wrestling, & Street Fighting Concepts. We also have a No-Holds-Barred Team! This type of cross-training has allowed our students to not only have a basic understanding of how to overcome any type of "real fighting situation", but to compete at a very high level in both Grappling & Fighting competitions!

I've little or no experience on BJJ however I like a club which cross trains in all the above. Judo, for their take downs, boxing, to get your hands going but what about MT or even kickboxing?, perferably MT?..Are they training Vale Tudo?.
