    Ronin vs. Fighthouse

    Question for you NYC guys out there. Of course stick fighting be my first love, but ideally and eventually I'd like to incorporate it into an MMA sort of thing a la Dog Brothers, etc. So, I was looking for an NYC gym with an MMA program that fits into my schedule (Tuesdays and weekends, I do stick Mon & Wed). The two I came up with were Ronin Athletics and Fighthouse.

    I was pretty sure some of y'all trained at Ronin. How are you liking it? Anyone train at Fighthouse? Opinions?

    Cheers,

    ronin athletics is the place to be.

    lots of great, nice, quality guys, great training atmosphere and christian is one of the best teachers you can ask for.

    the emphasis on no gi is actually much better for kali tudo.

    and as it's unlimited classes with many available class times, you should be good to go.

    Thanks, Vin. Hey, wait- if your location says Boston, how'd you make it to the TD when everyone else was stuck?

    Cheers,

    Christian (Ronin Athletics) doesn't teach stick fighting, so I'm not sure what kind of comparison you'd be looking for. Regardless, 'The Fighthouse' is just a venue (Christian used hold his classes there). You'd need to be more specific regarding the class/teacher you'd be interested in before a more valid comparison can be made, anyway.

    It's all about the clinch. The clinch, I said.

    Go to Ronin, mojo. You want MMA, and its one of the only actual MMA gyms in NYC.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    Ronin over fighthouse, but what Tom said is true. You have to say who you would train under at fighthouse...there are many different instructors there. Ronin has a good reputation.

    You are always welcome to come by our club as well. www.nycombatsambo.com
    Drop me a line if you like. We will be closed for the holidays from Dec 22 - Jan 2.

    Sounds like a unanimous vote for Ronin. Was primarily looking for some striking / grappling to complement my stickfighting / dumog, but don't really have time to devote to separate BJJ and Muay Thai classes. At this point my utter ignorance of MMA training is probably showing through. I guess the guy at fighthouse who'd be teaching the class is Adam Schortz. I know nothing about him.

    Anyway, I'm REALLY new to all of this, but it's been loads of fun so far and I was looking to expand.

    I'd say Ronin, but keep in mind you run the risk of picking up a propensity for tea-bagging.....or perhaps that's just my experience with Ronin people :)

    the Muay Thai classes at the fight house however are top notch, especially if u want to pick up some conditioning work. I intend to get back there once I begin my new job and get some money in my pocket....

    Judo, BJJ, Muay Thai, and perhaps some MMA classes at Vamos. Will I finally learn to fight perhaps?
