Where do I train in London, Ontario?

I am looking to get into training after breaking my collarbone, to get back into shape but also because MMA interests me tremendously. The top places I am thinking of in London are the Suffer Systems Academy and Tompkins....but are there any other places I should be considering? I am not looking for any specific disciplines but I would like BJJ, muay thai, kickboxing. LMK....thanks.

i dunno how good some of the other smaller places are...but if you want the best you can get i'd hit up tompkins....lots of quality fighters coming out of there

Unfortunately that's a bit of a hike to Mississauaga for me.

A buddy of mine trained there for a bit, I would've liked to but yeah it's a bit far. I've tried contacting Tomkins place, but haven't heard back yet.

Go to a place called Action Kenpo Karate and ask for a guy named Joe he does private lessons in jiu jitsu and kickboxing-thai boxing, and u can book the lesson when u want it.

You should definetly come down to tompkins. You dont even need to contact shawn just come down. You can try a couple classes for free to see if you like it and decide from there. Its 60 bucks a month wich isnt bad because for the year ive been there Ive been working with the likes of Chriss horodecki, Sam Stout, Mark Hominick, Chriss clements and so on. We also hold some amature muay thai fights to. Heres the web site it has the schedual on it so just come try it out and ill see ya there.
