    I used to go to AZ Combat Sports when I was semi regularly living here. Don't know where they are now though, their old location is empty now. I'm only back here temporarily, I work out with some guys down at Pure Fitness on Baseline/Rural once in a while. Either that or I go over the the Sunkist club and get in some work there. Ask Goldust though, he probably knows more about who to train with here. The only BJJ guys I know are Megaton, Gustavo, Jerry, and the con man. I don't know any other legit BJJ instructors, though the rage in the cage guy being legit is dubious at best. Now it seems like there's a school that does BJJ on every corner, when 10 years ago there were basically 2, and only one of those was actually worth it.

    I'm probably not gonna stick around past June because of the weather. I grew up here, but can't stand the heat. It's not as hot in the Bahamas, and the humidity balances it out, but there I can at least walk to the beach or harass the tourists at Club Med.

    Too bad nobody does BJJ down there or else I might never have to come back to the mainland.

    Theres a Muay Thai and BJJ place called Sitan Gym in Chandler.

    http://www.sitangymaz.com/

    The jiu jitsu instructor(Eddie Sanchez) is figting in the ADCC tournament this weekend in New Jersey.

    Edit...I was throwing this out there as another choice for people residing in the east valley.

    They are just about a block north on McClintock of the old location since Feb. Just south of Apache behind Jiffy Lube on east side of McClintock. More parking, mat space, and an octagon.

    I'm glad they got a bigger place. I remember I came down around when Trevor first opened up and had Danny Boy Bennett there with him. That place was a freaking closet, seriously. Maybe I'll drop in and check it out, the Sitan Gym sounds good too, but I don't think Eddie would help me much, he'd probably remember me from the old old days...haha. Still he's really tough for 120 lbs. I never understood why he wasn't a world champion at that weight.
