    I've seen a few threads about training in Amsterdam but I'm headed out there next week and would like some more specific information. Last time I stayed at the renaissance marriott in Amsterdam. Not sure what area you would call that, but I think I'll be staying near there again. Ill be there for about a week. And I'm looking to possibly get in a session or two of training out there. What I'm asking from you guys is recommendations of gyms and some information with it, like schedules, single class pricing, locations, and I borrow equiptment since I dont think I'll be traveling with any (could bring wraps, shorts, and a cup). I do mostly grappling at my school now but have been mixing in a lot more stand up so I'm basically looking to go for the experience more than a hard training session right now and the fact that I'll be on vacation I dont need to walk around with a broken nose or something ha. thanks guys

    The notorius mikes gym burned down last september in Amsterdam North, they re opened in Oostzaan which is very close to amsterdam.
    The most famous gym is afcourse chakuriku, from Tom Harinck. He mad k1 champions like badr Hari, Peter Aerts, Hesdy gerges etc...
    Vos Gym is from Ivan Hippolyte, Major fighters were born here. Like Hoost.
    Meijiro is from Andree Mannaart. He style is just underrated and insane. Remy Bonjasky was made here. (The old agressive one)
    Golden glory is not in amsterdam but there main sportgym is in Breda. They got just too many famous fighters training there.

    If you want to look then i def advice you to look at Vos Gym and Chakurika. Vos gym has that oldschool mike tyson trainins style and Ivan hippo is just an amazing trainer. Tom Harinck is just such a good mental trainer, i would def advice you to check that out to. Mikes gym is huge too, their trainings are insane and verrrry high leveled. They expect you to have the mental strenght of a fighter, if you dont then you wont survive it there. :)

    never went to meijiro so cant tell you about them. But heard a lot of good story's about andree manaart. :) I hope i helped you a bit, just post if you want more detailed info. :D

    VOS or Meijiro's.

    Mike's gym is not really central in AMS so it depends on what kind of transportation you have. If you are just relying on regular public transport I say VOS or Meijiro.

    I think we'll have a rental car for the week. But I'd like to check out VOS and Meijiro as well.

    You're wrong, Ernesto trained at Vos Gym in Amsterdam but started his own Gym in Hoorn last year.

    • Golden Glory isn't in Amsterdam
    • Mike's Gym moved to Oostzaan (just outside Amsterdam)
    • Mejiro is fucking expense, better try Vos Gym (also easier/better located).

    If you stay in a hostel in Amsterdam you don't need a rental car. Just take the tram or bus to Vos Gym. Maybe better is to rent or buy a secondhand bike.
