So just wanted to know if anyone out there have in good recommendations for schools/teacher in NYC for BJJ and Muay Thai (these are the 2 styles I’m most interested in, but would take other recommendations as well)? There so much here in the city, I just don’t know where to begin. No background here in any martial arts except basically being a big fan my entire life. Its always been something I have always wanted to do, but never had the time, money, or fit level to do, but now its time. Also, I think I finally may have convinced my wife (at least the Muay Thai anyways) to join in with me. So if anyone has any places they know of in NYC, I would love any advice.. Also any other knowledge that you guys can impart to me is always appreciated.

hey bro

you have many options:

of course, you've got Renzo's place - I believe his guys train muay thai with Kru Phil Nurse @ http://www.muaythai-nyc.com

Also, at www.fighthouse.com I heard of a solid MMA guy doing grappling and muay thai there - their site is www.fighthouse.com

I hope this helps brudda,

best,

I recommend Renzo's for BJJ www.renzogracie.com
and Five points fitness for muay thai.

I'm totally biased.

Thanks for the info guys...I will be looking into them. Leslie and I are actually thinking about joining 5 points now. As soon as we can get out of our other gym. Of course we want to start coming to the weekly crossfit classes there now, and looking into the Muay Thai as well.

So I checked out Renzo Gracie's place and it looks like the wife and I are going to go for it. We are nervous and excited. Now if we can get out of our old contract we can swing doing that and something else. Maybe being able to afford the BJJ, crossfit classes, and some Muay Thai. But I guess we should crawl before we walk :biggrin:
