    Im new to this forum and i dont know if i put thie thread in the right place but i need help on choosing a gym in the NYC. Im 16 years old and I want to pursue mma as proffesional in the future. I was training at a place near my house in bjj 2 days a week and sambo 2 days a week. But based on changes of the gym i couldnt take bjj any more so i decided two days of training was not enough. From what i heard the best places to train are in the city anyway but im confused on what to pick. Sambo looks great to me so checked out Nycombatsambo and i was impressed with it the only thing kind of questioning myself is the standup training there. Ive been wanting to do Muay thai especially because im a taller and lean type guy and it looked like a fit martial art for me. My number one pick for that was The Wat but i realized it has no grappling where i have struggled alot in even though The Wat's stand up is amazing. Then my other choices are Fivepoints academy because it teaches Muaythai and it has Judo. From what i heard their muay thai is not on the same level as the Wat but they also have grapling which helps me more for mma. And then my last choice was Evolution Muay thai becaue the prices were great, i heard Brandon Levi is a great teacher and they have bjj. The only down part i heard about them was the lack of competitors and how not alot people get to go compete when training their. Im so confused on what to pick can you please help. So the choices are Ny combatSambo, The wat, Five points academy or Evolution Muaythai. Please leave detailed explanations why and if you have any other suggestions that'll be great also. Im sorry if i posted in wrong part of forum i wasnt sure where to put it . But it will be great if i can get advice on what to pick out of the specific gyms i listed and renzos is out of the question because of the pricing

    You are worried about not getting the "uber top notch" and lack of competitors when you havent even started training yet?

    Use the enter button every once and a while bro. Just pick one and run with it, you can pick up other stuff as you just train.
