    London Bullies

    I've landed in the capital and my gammy shoulder's pretty much healed - anyone want to recommend a place to train?

    I did a class at KO Muay Thai in Bethnal Green last night and unless I get a better option I'm probably going to join there. Before I do though, anyone got any other suggestions?

    I'm in Rotherhithe btw.

    Is it Muay Thai specifically you want to train?
    How far are you willing to travel?

    I've heard good things about KO in Bethnal Green, I believe some of the guys from Pancrase London moved there when it closed.

    There's always London Shootfighters if you have the money.

    As PDA said, what are you looking to train in?

    Evening guys.

    Not massively bothered about style but I like to train every day, sometimes twice daily, so gyms that are preparing people for fights tend to be my best fit, which mostly means MT or MMA. Also I enjoy MT/K1 sparring and had my first K1 interclub fight fairly recently, so I've got something build on there.

    Monthly memberships down here seem pretty pricey (70-80 a month seems about normal?) so whereas in Nottingham, say, I could be a member of two clubs, down here that would be an expensive fucking hobby.

    As far as travel goes, I'm working next to the dome, possibly doing a few weeks in Dagenham soon. I'd rather not spend more than half an hour travelling to a gym/back home.

    Rock Ape recommended a Kendo dojo to me ages ago; in my newbietown thread I think. If you're interested I'll see if I can hunt it down. As far as I can recall they compete regularly there so you'll get a good workout.

    I think Willesden Junction is probably a bit of a trip for you or I'd recommend you come train with us.

    Heizen Kendo Dojo, Sumerstown

    http://www.hizen.info/

    The instructor lived in Japan for quite a number of years and was the national coach for the British Team for some time. his dojo is the largest within the British Kendo Association.

    Depends on what floats your boat in terms of competitive action. Kendo is a very hard workout but has zero self defence applicability

    The instructor is a legit 7th dan.

    Somers Town. It's now lodged in a sports hall in Chalton Street. Nearest Train is Euston or Mornington Crescent. St Pancras is a little further way as is Kings X.

    It's between Camden Town and Kings X; all in the London Borough of Camden.

    Cheers
