    Sorry for posting this in stand-up and grappling, mods, but if anyone can recommend a good gym in Sin City I would greatly appreciate it. Thinking about moving there and the only two I can think of is Cobra Kai and Randy's rumored Team Quest. Thanks in advance.

    Is it with a "K"? I can't find their website? LVCC looks damn good. Mayhem is at Kobra Kai, right?

    Cobra Kai.

    A lot of guys come in and out of there:
    Phil Baroni
    Mayhem
    Jay Heiron
    Ricco Rodriguez
    Kevin Randleman
    Coleman
    Joe Stevenson

    They have a ring, a cage, and a mat area. Although they have a well rounded program they are best known for their grapplers. For example, the last 2 grappling tournaments they have completely dominated. NAGA they took first, and last weekend at Nevertap they swept the superfights with every one of thier guys winning. Bieri, Mayhem, Spangler, Ulysses, and Sim all won. Simply put Cobra Kai is #1 in Las Vegas and makes a damn good showing in the U.S.

    Probably Laimons. I've heard J-sect has been declining since he left...

    I called them and they told me. Looks like a good school, but a lot of grappling work. I always worry my stand up is going to suffer if I train at a place like this or at a Gracie school.

    Heard Cobra Kai is the place. I believe there is a Machado Jiu Jitsu school out there as well. If you want to learn Gracie JiuJitsu I'd go there. But Marc Laimon at Cobra Kai is definitely a reputable teacher.
