I just moved to Taipei a couple weeks ago from Los Angeles. I've been training in Jiu-Jitsu on/off for a few years back in sunny Cali and since my arrival to Taiwan, haven't had a chance to train. I have asked a couple locals and there doesn't seem to be a large BJJ community here; people mainly go for karate, judo, or other types of kungfu is what I learned.
I'm itching to roll!
That being said, I primarily train Jiu-Jitsu as a form self defense, so I tend to avoid those competitive, sports-oriented BJJ schools. Due to certain circumstances, me and my instructor had a custom curriculum drawn out for us, so technically speaking I'm not exactly looking for new knowledge so much as just sharpening my skills and honing what I have. If anyone here is kind enough to provide a little more insight to the Jiu-Jitsu community in Taipei, and/or if you know any place that provides a suitable space I can train at (which does not require $$$), I'd be extremely grateful.
Also, please note that I just don't have the cash but am absolutely willing to trade you some knowledge for a training space! I have confidence that this will definitely prove as not just a way to stretch your limbs, but also a nice bit of useful knowledge. I come from a long line of people who've practiced Jiu-Jitsu (literally) their whole lives after all :-)
So if you have an empty garage... (see where I'm going with this?) then perhaps we can have some fun
If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to ask...
