    Well there is a team ROC in Angier, and one in North Raleigh.

    It depends on where you are in clayton as to what is close. Close to 40+42 or are you more in town closer to 70 or the east side of town on 42 headed to the boonies?

    I live in Raleigh, and there are only 2 places i would consider training. I currently train at Crossfit NC, where we have 2 Royce Gracie blackbelts as our instructors. The other is the "Raleigh institute of martial arts", where one of the blackbelts instructs part time along with a number of other talented instructors. I dont know of anything closer to clayton.

    Do you know when? Will this have BJJ classes? Do you know who the instructor or affiliations will be by chance? I live down the road and this would be a godsend.

    -thanks

    Actually TFTC is closer to him if he is in the 40+42 area. Its a ROC gym in Angier, and its about an 18 minute drive from the last light ( the one west bound at the Ashley Turner Plaza) at 40+42. If you need to ask about credentials there, ask Billy or Jason (of Crossfit) what the place in Angier is like.

    I live off Maynard, in between Kildaire farm rd and Old Apex Rd. Its like 5-10 minutes from Harrison but thats a lot closer than going to Raleigh, Durham, Wake Forrest or Clayton. I was just interested if there was any news about the LA Boxing because its the first I've heard of it. I just did some research and found their site. Unfortunatly, theres no info on there yet. http://www.laboxing.com/cary/

    Angier isnt too far for you, but its a decent hike from Maynard. LA Boxing is more a franchise, I cant speak to the overall quality of their facilities (I have heard some are great and others....not as great) but there is supposed to be a crossfit (Roc affiliated) opening in Cary sometime in the near future. I think promoting the local fights put that on a slight hold, but as far as I know there is one coming to Raleigh.

    Pretty sure Royce (greg's teacher) promoted them. Greg is their instructor though, but I think it was Royce who did the honors of "knighting" them, which I think is the proper etiquette (for the senior/master level guy to give the black) but I really dont know how the formalities work.

    Ya it would probably be 5 minutes vs.30-40 minutes of a drive. I'll keep my eyes on it. I'm looking to start somewhere in April.
