I'm out on Long Island and have been checking out places to train. Everyone's first thought when they think of LI is Serra's place (which is certainly pretty dope), but I was actually super impressed by Long Island MMA (http://www.limixedmartialarts.com/
). Place is huge, I couldn't imagine what I could ever need or want that they wouldn't have- mats/cage/weights/treadmills/bags/etc. And the whole crew down there is cool as hell, which to me was very, very important. The place smells good too, not like festering staph like in a lot of places.
It's also cool that there are killers there: Ryan LaFlare, Marcos Galvao, Dennis Bermudez, and a bunch of dudes still cutting their teeth at the lower levels.
Anyone else look into gyms in their area and all of a sudden realize they had been sleeping on a kickass spot to train? I was kind of surprised I hadn't noticed how cool this place was any sooner than I had.
