    Where to train on the East coast?

    Could anyone suggest some schools on the east coast that have a good mma program. I'm currently living in New York but I plan on moving some time this year and one of the things I want to take into consideration is the quality of martial arts instruction in the area.

    I'm hoping to find a school/instructor(s) with a background in Judo, jujitsu, muay thai, boxing and wrestling. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ahead of time guys!

    What town are you in now and where will you be moving to? That would help as the Est Coast and NY afre pretty big.

    I haven't made that decision yet. That's why I'm asking for info on schools on the east coast in general. I'm currently living in the Syracuse, NY area and there really isn't much of a selection here, unless of course you want to study at a black belt mill.

    Long Island has
    Matt Serras place (obviously good and $$$),
    Ray Longos gym (some UFC/TUF guys in there),
    Joe D'Arce BJJ ( a Renzo BB and Pancrase fighter, still send guys into comps)
    Vamos BJJ (D'Arce purples run it, I'm pimping my school, cheap and puts guys into kickbox/grapple tournys)

    Lots of other schools. Even some Thai places too.

    NYC has Straight Blast Gym, Renzo Gracie's School, and a bazillion others. I'd say somewhere in Nassau County LI puts you at the center of everything on the island and in NYC.

    I'm not from there, but I know Atlanta has several good places as well. Jacare, Alliance, Velocity, Hardcore, off the top of my head.

    Philly has Balance Studios (BJJ), Philly MMA (MMA, der), and Maxercise (BJJ and Judo) and I'm sure many other schools.

    NYSanda in the city also has a competition team I believe, with BJJ classes in addition to the Sanda.

    Isn't Tai Kai Jiu Jitsu based in Liverpool, which is right around your area? I thought Tai Kai offers a well-rounded program.

    If you aren't looking to move too far, there's also CNY MMA in Cortland

    Rochester also has Peloton BJJ, which offers classes in both BJJ and Muay Thai, and Empire Academy of Martial Arts and Fitness, which is a Militech affiliate that offers striking and grappling classes. The grappling component is a judo/sambo base.

    It's hard to narrow down the choices if you dont give us a general idea of where you plan on staying.
