Golden Glory to set up satellite gym in Calif.

source: was informed last night by the head of Team Golden Glory, Bas Boon, that the revered Dutch fight camp will be opening up a satellite location in Huntington Beach,  California, likely by the end of the year.

According to Boon, the gym will be run by Carlo Dekkers, the brother of retired Golden Glory champion kickboxer and current trainer, Ramon Dekkers and it will act as the base for training camps of team members who will be fighting in North America similar to the one they set up in Pattaya, Thailand for fighters readying to compete in Asia.

Boon says that several of Golden Glory's revered trainers like Cor Hemmers and himself and star fighters such as Alistair Overeem, Semmy Schilt, Sergei Kharitonov, Siyar Bahadurzada and Marloes Coenen will make the California facility a regular destination, adding that the team will also be recruiting American fighters through the gym.

Huntington beach is a good location you have a lot of foot traffic there and it close to long beach which is a huge city, and is also close to a lot of big OC cities, but the OC does have a ton of gyms so I guess they would have competition, but with GG big name I think they would still atract people, I already talked to 3 people who would make the drive 16 miles from long beach to HB to train at GG,and when GG fighters start winning and promoting the gym at MMA events like strikeforce,ufc ETC and metioning the gym people are gonna check it out.

It would be a lot cooler if it wasn't in CA. If it was more centralized people could come from all over to train there. Few people are going to drive cross country for seminars, etc.
