    Seems like a great place for training no pun intended. Sam Calavitta seems like the best guy in the business for strength and conditioning, Mark Munoz is an awesome wrestling coach + awesome motivator, and Bang Ludwig is the man! (Cub Swanson looked great until getting dropped)
    Also it is close to some boxing gyms where TJ trained(part of where he whooped no dad's ass even worse than the first time)

    That's where I would go if I was a fighter

    It's already better than Longo's gym out in Long Island, that's for sure.

    JacksonWink is where I'd go if I wanted to be a fighter. Great training + free steroids

    he said he doesn't want a business. I think it's more a close group of elite fighters than anything

    Not all gyms have an open door policy

    Well since everyone at TAM is a dick training partner(Cody apparently broke some orbitals because he would not cool it and PVZ kneed a 14 year old kid in the headrepeatedly while he was down and they praised her for it), it's still better than tam

    I'd train there if I lived close. Can't deny Doug Funny's skills. So what if I have to buy some peanut butter from Bang every now and then.

    Cub didn't look great until he got dropped. Looked like the same Cub. Another fighter from TJs camp got knocked out on prelims too

    It's a solid gym TJ is on but it's much like GSP with TriStar or DJ with AMC. TJ, DJ and GSP are such gureat fighters they make the gym look better than it is and have a perfect fit with Bang, Hume and Firas respectively. You're not gonna be able to find the same success with other fighters

    No. He just uses science and analytics to evaluate/train his fighters. When you use proper equipment and training backed with research you get good results. Problem is most gyms don't have the finances or knowledge to do so. The best is Dr. Julian Darby. He's both a medical doctor, has a PhD in sports science and was an international level cyclist. Only problem is the only one that can afford him is Conor. He does all of his other work out of a university and hospital. A hell of a lot more than glorified personal trainers that populate the business.

    You can't attribute Cub's loss entirely to TJ's gym. First off, he trained the vast majority of his career at Jackson's, and second, Cub has been fighting for a decade now and at the top for a long time - he just got worked over by a younger fighter who looked very good.

    A good point. These are the practices which differentiate a well tuned athlete from a battered jock. The applications and techniques are focused on peak performance, as well as enhancing health and longevity (that is, as much health and longevity as one can expect as a pro fighter).

    Seems like a good place you're right, but bang isn't the striking coach.
