wasn't there a boxing gym at that location before?
Yeah there was it used to be a boxing gym but (long island mixed martial arts) LIMMA moved in. i believe the boxing gym is still around just switched location.
im not sure if their still in Lindenhurst
Stopped in there a few days ago. Really nice gym close to 3 major roads/highways.
Watched the striking coach demonstrating a point to his class and he was really focused on making sure everyone was grasping it. He seemed very down to earth also.
I wasn't in there 30 seconds before someone stopped training to come and talk with me. I said I could wait for someone else, (who was with another prospective member) since I didn't want to interrupt his workout but, he stayed to help me anyway.
Lots of parking too. I've been to gyms where parking just sucked so I always look for this now.
Seemed to be a good amount of equipment ie. bags/pads etc.
I saw a cage as well.
Thay also have classes morning/noon and night. And open mat every day (i think) This was really important to me due to my work schedule.
All this was gleaned from about 5 -10 min inside the gym. I'm sure they have more to offer. I'll find out Friday.
So far though, I'm impressed.

Sway cant wait to see you down here again!
Just wanted to update and correct my previous post.
I had my intro lesson today. The guys who worked with me were really helpful. I learned a few new things right away and it was a very comfortable environment.
I MADE ONE ERROR on my previous post. They don't have a cage YET. It is simply a caged weight area. I'm told they are already working on moving next door to a bigger space where they will have an elevated full cage.
Also, the shower and locker area is CLEAN. For those of you who don't smell like wilderbeasts (and I thank you) I'm sure this will be a +.
Is Lindhurst close to Brentwood Long Island? I'll be there on at least one business trip over this summer and might get a chance to drop in for a BJJ class.
Are visitors welcome? Matt fee? Any club specific rules that I would need to respect?
I live in Brentwood. It's 15 min away via the Southern State pkwy.
Cool, I'll have a rental car. Lemme check the schedule and call ahead to make sure that dropping is OK.
Should I walk in like I own the whole planet and call anyone that doesn't do Wing Chun or TKD a *****? :)
When I call ahead, who should I talk to?
