Kirik - 

Lot of female talent at Jackson's. Don't know if you care if there are females to train with or not. Lot of good male talent there, too :-)


I'm happy to train with guys or girls... its never mattered to me :)

Where do you train Kirik & which part of America??


I dunno where Kirik trains, but Jackson's is in Albuquerque, New Mexico, surrounded by desert. Relatively few distractions in Albuquerque and the higher elevation make it a good place to train, and also I believe they have the largest female fight team in the world, including Michelle Waterson.

Ceelo - Come train up here in NorCal with the Scrappack :) Diaz brothers, Melendez,Shields

I'd probably faint if I saw the Diaz Bro's in person LOL :) Major fan girl moment would be had!!


Talk to Leslie Smith at the next Invicta event. She trains with those guys. I'm sure she could set something up.

Good idea :) Leslie is the female Nick Diaz after all!! 


Who knows, you might even run into that other 'Rowdy' MMA fighter if you time it right.

Go to denver. Great city, lots of places to train, plus you can train at elevation.

The mtns are close and you can get in to snow most of the year if you know where to look.

Steve4192 - Albuquerque, New Mexico

Team Jackson probably has the biggest stable of female fighters in the world. If you want a chance to train with some of the best, you can't go wrong there. Talk to Julie Kedzie and Michelle Waterson at the next Invicta event. I'm sure they could set you up with an invite.

You also might want to look at HD MMA in Kansas City since you have to go there anyway for your Invicta fights. Jason High and LC Davis are both damn solid pro fighters and have a lot to offer.

RowdyBec - 
Chromium - Definitely try the local sushi, as California tends to have a disproportionate amount of bitchin' Japanese restaurants (admittedly I say this as being in NorCal rather than SoCal), and sushi is very healthy.

Also, we may not have the Himilayas or the Andes but we still have some tall-ass mountains, and hiking is great exercise. I've never been up Mt. Whitney though (tallest mountain in the continental U.S., and for some reason it's in California; ask about the permit-lottery thing, since California is hard-up for cash).

Also, should you ever make your way to our northeastern corner that is Maine, birthplace of Stephen King and Tim Sylvia, EAT THE LOBSTER. ALL OF IT. ALL THAT YOU CAN GET. WITH BUTTER SAUCE. And bring a bib.

Also, should you happen to touch a wild animal here, don't worry. It's not poisonous.

I love me some Japanese :) Someone else actually told me about lobster in Maine believe it or not!!


Well, Maine is pretty out of the way so that's what sticks out in most people's minds.

If you're down for crab instead, Maryland has some kick-ass crab cakes and seafood. If you go to Baltimore, where the HBO documentary series known as The Wire was shot, check out the seafood at the harbor area. Also the aquarium is cool, although admittedly I haven't been since I was about 10, so I may be misremembering it. And stay out of the places in the city that aren't the harbor. Or go into the city at night. In fact, forget about Baltimore.

I have to go do stuff now but someone should probably make a list of places for RowdyBec to avoid and remember include to include all of Indiana on it (not that most of Indiana is dangerous, just that it sucks).

Go to Sityodtong in Somerville, MA. It's just North of Boston. While there u can also train at my gym 30 min north of there. We have some very good female fighters. One of them is in that 20k female 145 tournie in FL. (It's not Fallon Fox) Phone Post

Heel Hooker - I love Americans as individuals but not as a country. I would seek out trainers and academies of people you already know, lots of places can be unwelcoming dicks or try to "put" you in your place.

Canada isn't like that though.

Shut the fuck up you self-righteous Canuck.

Canadian gyms are no different than American gyms. There are some good ones and some bad ones, and every gym has it's share of nice people and jerks.

I have run an MMA gym in Western Massachusetts since 1994. If you come to Boston, I can take you around to Sityodtong, Lauzon MMA, etc.

If you go to Maine, train with Jay Jack and Amanda in So Portland.

Bec:

 

Come to Sacramento. YOu can train with Veronica Roth at Urijah Faber's Gym. They just hired Duane Bang Ludwig as their head coach.

In Sacramento, you will also have the opportunity to train in Lodi with the Diaz's, San Jose at American Kickboxing Academy, or in San Francisco at El Nino's Training Center (Gil Melendez).

Sacramento is also in the middle of San Francisco and Lake Tahoe (google it)

 

Good luck and hope to see you.

San Diego is definitely on the list. I wanna make good use of Liz Carmouche's offer to train together :) 

Oh & I had Sonic when I was in KC in January... it tasted much better than fast food here in Australia LOL!!

When u go to SD, Get a Buffalo or Ostrich burger at The Malt Shop... No can Defend!!

Only fast Food Burger even worth talking about is In n Out!

San Diego is Where you need to go... At least for a little bit... IMO

for your standup style, the chute boxe style training w/ rafael cordeiro at King's MMA in fountain valley, orange county, CA would be good. you can also work w/ fabricio werdum there to up ur ground game.

AKA at san jose is great too.

then again you can't go wrong w/ training w/ cesar gracie but you gotta think about where you want to live. orange county and san diego are much nicer places to hang out than central california (where cesar gracie is) or new mexico (jackson).

If you're looking to do some excellent jiu jitsu training, Gracie Academy Torrance with Ryron and Rener Gracie is highly recommended. I got my blue belt there and hope to return after I'm all healed from my surgery. Torrance is just south of Los Angeles.
