    I'm deciding between two schools, Jungle gym in the Bronx and La boxing in Mamaroneck. Does anyone train at either or have experiences also would anyone know the rates? Thanks

    I have heard good things about the jungle gym and ran into a few of their guys in competition. Never heard of the other school.

    Jungle gym's guys are pretty respected for the most part. No idea about the other school.
