I was training at Castillo's boxing gym in San Antonio, which is closed down now. Can someone recommend a quality boxing gym in town that doesn't cost a fortune every month?

How about an MMA gym? Im looking for a good gym, I just don't want to get KTFO the first practice session. -Thanks

Boxing- Randazzo Brothers Boxing gym on Nacodoches rd... Although I have never trained there... I have stopped in on occasion.... and it is always packed when I drive by...and from what I have heard the brothers have trained some of the best boxing contenders in san antonio (sorry I don't have names)....here is their website: http://randazzoboxing.com/

MMA:  I have heard Texas Powerhouse is a good place to train... I do not train there either.... I have heard from the main instructors students that the owner is a really solid coach...not a meathead.   Here is their website:  http://www.texaspowerhouse.com/

As far as Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.    You can't beat were I train on a regular basis   Marra Senki Jiu-Jitsu on Bitters Rd....The head instructor/owner Sergio "Marra" Correa is considered somewhat of the elder statesmen of the BJJ instructors in San Antonio....One of the best technicians in all of BJJ....Although I never train MMA there... they also have MMA classes as well.   Here is his website:  www.marrajj.com

Hope that helps...

I'll second Marra JJ. I am the MMA coach there but I am currently deployed. I will be back in July and the MMA program will again be at 100%.

There are several good places in SA. So check them out and see what is a good fit for you. However, the other place I will always recommend is the Spartan Pit (www.spartanpit.com). Rudy Hernandez is the coach there and one of my fighters. He has a solid kickboxing/muay thai/sub-grappling program there.

Drop my name at either place and they will hook you up...

I'm sure there's a lot of great places to train down here, but I just started training Jiu-Jitsu at Rodrigo Pinheiro and it's a great place. And it's reasonable. I wanted to train at a Relson affiliate because that's what I've trained back at home, but the one down here was kinda costly so I went elsewhere.
