best place to begin training in eastern LI?

Im only 17 and live in the Hamptons. most people suggest Serra's but its too far for me to go consistently (would take me over an hour to get there). I dont want a crappy place either, I want the best training possible so i have a chance to get somewhere with mma. thanks

*im looking for muay thai and submission grappling

Here you go kid...

How about Grand Master Francisco Mansor, a 9th degree red belt in Port Jefferson since it's nothing but the best for you?

Kioto Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

I don't think he assumed that at all. I'm guessing he just went from you posting, "I dont want a crappy place either, I want the best training possible..." So he replied sarcastically because you're 17 and can't find a local gym.

But, who knows. I'd look locally (walk around man, ask, drive, look in the newspaper), most schools advertise. As far as the 'best' goes, best at what? You mentioned Serra, so BJJ? How about wrestling? How about karate or MT?

Or just look at what Tony posted. GM Mansor is supposed to be great.

Hour to half hour drive is nothing. While I was a poor broke college student I drove a 150 mile round trip 4 days a week to train up at Jackson's MMA. A little half hour drive shouldn't deter you from training at a great place if you really want to be a fighter.

A big grip people have had over the years was having to learn from low ranking teachers. The love the sport, like the trainer but can't help feeling like they would get more out of learning from a black belt. Specially from the beginning of the journey.

You are 15 mins from a black belts school. Coach depo.

He is from the Renzo lineage in NYC though i believe Joe D'Arce. If I'm not mistaken he ran a program at D'arce bjj, now runs BJJ at vertex and LIMMA.

15 mins from you. No excuses. That is the closest black belt to your house.
Good luck
