    Schools in Bloomington, IN

    I am looking for any good gyms in Bloomington, IN. Preferably in a striking art like boxing. I've looked a little around the area and have not found anything. I don't have a car so the distance that the gym can be from IU is limited.

    This gym is really close to me, but it doesn't seem very good and geared more towards kids.

    School clubs, should be cheap. I know you're looking for striking but it seems there's not much worth a damn in the area. The school also has Karate, Hapkido and FMA. But seriously, BJJ and Judo at university club pricing? There's a boxing club somewhere, but they don't have their own ring so it seems to have dissolved.

    Oh, and if you're up Purdue way, send me a PM if you'd like to spar or some such.

    Does anyone know more about the FMA club? It does not have a website and I don't know anything about FMA. Are FMA more striking based or grappling based?

    FMA is Filipino Martial Arts, it's a blanket term for several martial arts.

    I started training BJJ at the IU club back in 2004 while I was in grad school. It was only $30/semester for the club back then. I think most of the martial arts clubs were the same price.

    Some people were trying to start a boxing club back then too, but the university wouldn't allow any clubs that struck to the head on campus so it never really got anywhere. Whether anything has changed since then or if there is an unofficial club, I don't know. Assuming that rule is still in effect (which I'd bet it is with liability and all), you're probably SOL on the type of striking you're looking for on campus.
