    With the exception of Hollywood and Downtown, those are not remotely close to each other.

    Where will you be living?

    So Cal is massive and there a plethora of great gyms. You need to be more geographically specific.

    If you are moving and don't know where you'll be living yet, where will you be working?

    I'm not concerned with what's close or not, I know a lot of those places like OC and Downtown LA are drastically different. I want to know what good gyms there are for these regions.

    There are many, many top gyms in so cal. depends purely on location at this point and what you want out of training. Great striking, great wrestling, etc.

    In the lake elsinore area, Carlson Gracie Temecula is a great place to train at, highly skilled guys that are excellent people as well as teachers plus with your wrestling background, the bjj there will compliment it nicely. Plus there is also Team Quest in the same area as well if you are looking for something more familiar
