Best Muay Thai gyms in the US?

There's a thread in the K-1 section regarding "American kickboxers or lack thereof"... I'm not going to bring up the debate again here, as that would accomplish nothing.

What I would like is your opinions on the best MT gyms here in the US?

We all know of the more accomplished gyms in Thailand and Holland, but rarely do I see anything regarding gyms here in the states. I'll throw out a few of the more well known places AKA/San Jose, Fairtex/San Francisco, Five Points/NY....etc, but I have never actually trained at any of these facilities so couldn't tell you the actual level of training.

*Disclaimer*- Yes I did use the search function, and no I did not find anything relevant. Don't believe me, type in "Muay Thai US" or "best gyms" and see how many bogus hits you get. Also I know there is a school directory up top, but no discussions are allowed.

Sityodong in the Boston, MA area is pretty highly recommended.

The Sityodtong west coach branch is very good too.

Master Toddy's in Vegas is also another well-known one.

Thank you to cobracore for my av.

I train at 5points and we are literaly neighbors with Kru Phil Nurse's The Wat in Chinatown!

Though the Wat is a good place to train, 5Points is a larger facility and the atmosphere is not that gritty. There is also Sitan Gym in Queens and Boradin Gym in Brooklyn.

Each of these places I mentioned are good, its just the matter of price and the right fit for you.

Preserve your Partner and you'll train longer!
