    I'm going to be moving to Tempe with good friends on August 1st. My first choice of gym is Gustavo Dantas' place, due to the location and my love of Nova Uniao. But, what other gyms are there and worth trying out? I know Glendale has The Lab, but that's a bit too out of the way.

    If you go to Megaton you will train with him Tanquinho and Mackenzie dern. Gustavo is a great instructor if you live close to his academy you can't go wrong with him.

    Megatons is 20 miles away, so that's pretty much out of the picture. The Lab is even more so out of the way at 35 miles. The closest option is Dantas, who is about 7 miles from the apt. Power MMA is 10 miles away. Relson Gracie Phoenix is 12 miles. Jay Pages BJJ is 4. 10th planet is 14 lol. Impact MMA is also 14 miles away.

    I'll probably stop in at Gustavo Dantas' place, Impact MMA (Tanquinho is the BJJ instructor!), and Jay Pages. Pages is a smaller school, which I really like. It's also closest, as you saw.
