I am actually excited to hit the gym again!  I have lived in Vegas for about 13yrs and have been a member of LA Boxing, Xtreme Cotures, and TapouT Training Center and now Syndicate Training Center. For too long these gyms have excelled in one area and struggled in another.  

Finally a gym gets it and has the coaches to pull it off.  Syndicate is having Vinny Magalhaes and Fredson Paixao instructing the BJJ which make those classes sick I can't think of another gym that has 2 blackbelts running their program.  Muay Thai is taught buy Master Nope and Shawn Yarborough
The Pro amateur program is run by owner John Wood (Coach on Team Jones this upcoming season of Ultimate fighter), John Gunderson pro MMA fighter/ trainer, and Nate Pettit (Personal coach to Mike Pyle).  Pro’s that are regulars


Evan Dunham
Jay Hieron
Mike Pyle
John Alessio
Steve Lopez
Phil Dace
Josh Haynes
Maurice Centers
Johnny Nunez
Brad Tavares
Roy Nelson
Amir Sadollah
Jimmy Spicuzza
Collen Schneider
Amanda Lucas
Along w many others.


Sorry if this is coming off like an ad, I’m just pumped to finally have a home for all aspect of MMA.  Some pics for your time

As per the usual the creator of a thread gets voted down haha.  No worries, I only bring this up because some of the MMA Gyms are losing their pro program or the gym itself is struggling.

For real though looks like an awesome place. Unfortunately, I find that the big awesome places with the best equipment also attract the exact kinds of training partners I DON'T WANT.

Well house of RYU has the strong hold on the dueche bag population in Vegas. I left Coutures when Vinny came over and the grappling partners here is a very solid group.

That may be the case in a lot of big gyms but not this one. Phone Post

Moved when vinny went over to xtreme? Why? Phone Post
You'll have to ask Vinny why he left. He just said we are moving to syndicate. Phone Post

Unfortunately, being a filthy mudnamer; I already used my daily VTFU, however I am subbed to the thread now and shall give you the VTFU you deserve for this thread.

When I'm back out West (God Willing, this summer, I'll be back in Phoenix); I plan to make many ventures to Vegas and partake in visiting this gym.

He meant to say that he left Xtreme Couture to Syndicate when I made the move myself. Most of my grappling/BJJ guys have been training with me for the last 3 years or so, so they go wherever I go.

Where is the gym located? Does it have begginer level classes? Biking again and if my knee holds up would love to get back into light grappling.
