first of all happy new year and all the best.
However, as I told you earlier I was very busy during throughout December so I couldn't attend
any of the practice at valko BJJ. Personally, I would rather stay in the area where we were before because it is more convenient for me than driving all the way down to Valko. Another words, I would go with Conviction rather. Whatever you guys decide let me know via e-mail. See you guys in a few days.

Happy New Year, everybody.
During December we worked out at Conviction Fitness and Valko BJJ. In addition we looked into 6 other possible locations that for various reasons were not feasible as our new home. So it's time to make a decision of a new regular workout facility.
I would propose Valko BJJ to be our new home. Parking is easy, the locker rooms are great, the mats are decent, if a bit hard, and above all, Jay Valko is an easy guy to get along with and they value wrestling. The main problem with Conviction is that the mats are in sections with gaps in between.
Before I finalize this arrangement I would like to give everyone one more opportunity to provide feedback or suggestions. I would appreciate getting your comments in the next few days. Turnout the last few weeks (over the holidays) has been low and I hope that after making this decision we start seeing more wrestlers at each eorkout.
Feel free to email or call me directly.
