There's a guy in our Gym who has trained there
. He says they're good but its the competitors who get the attention.

Check out AKA its in San Jose but its a good place to train. Everyone gets attention here since we have so many great trainers.
Might aswell check all the gyms out and decide which you like more.
A.K.A. rocks your socks.

Style: MMA, functional JKD
I worked out with Cheetah's people a little bit. Pretty solid traditional Mauy Thai. It is true that their fighters/competitors get the most attention, as they are trying to build a stable of fighters. I think it is probably the best place for straight MT in the east bay. I left because I wanted more grappling and groundfighting, which brings us to MODERN COMBATIVES!!!
(((Another shameless plug)))
MC is a fun, functional, ego-free place to train. They won't teach me the "touch of death", though. Must be becasue I am not "ready"...

Guy Who Pays the Bills and Gets the Death Threats Style: MMA (Retired)
Berkeley. I used to date a girl who lived a few blocks off Shattuck back when I lived in the Bay Area. Knowing the feel of the place, you'd never guess there'd be much for martial arts around, other than maybe Tai Chi.
Other than the hippies, cool town though. The Ben and Jerry's by the campus rocks.
