    I putting this thread on all the rooms for maximum results


    Whats up I haven't posted here in a while, but I wanted to ask the forum, I just moved back to NYC (BROOKLYN) and am looking to get back into training does anyone 1 know any good gyms in brooklyn queens for MMA, Thai Boxing or BJJ. I Know there is a lot of gyms in Manhattan but I hate taking the trains for an hr. to get to the city.

    Also does someone know any inexpensive gyms because I forgot how expensive the gyms in NYC can be lol. Seriously it is rediculous and everyone has the same excuse "rent, nyc is the most expensive place in the world" helll ATT facility in Coconut creek, Fl is a very expensive area in south florida and they still manage to charge 110 month for unlimted training. Go to San Fransisco and there 20-30% cheaper than NYC and SF is kown to be the most expensive cost of living in the US lolol it's crazy sometimes.

    Does anyone train here in Vee jitsu because I saw a new gym not too far from me called Vee jitsu school in Broolyn and wanted to know there take on the system, I have heard of it over the years but never knew what the sy

    Message this dude "Weonlywonsixtwo", he trains at Gene Dunn's and has been to both schools. I've rolled with him and he's a cool kid. He'll be happy to tell you.

    Edit: Oh and I think you get free Muay Thai or some shit. I'm a moron so go check up on that.

    There's a place in Queens that has a Renzo black belt there. His name is Rob Gutierrez. He is definitely a good coach as I have trained with him. Its called Progressive Martial Arts. Right off the L.I.E.
