Trust me when I tell you...I've seen tons of boxing and MMA gyms. I'm an amateur fighter, and have gone all over the US to train with the best. Coming out to San Diego every once and a while I always go to The Arena MMA. The guys over there are very skilled at what they do. They have an Olympian on staff, a few pro MMA fighters, and even the ultimate female fighter Cris "Cyborg" Santos. If you have a chance to tour the Arena...do it. You won't be sorry.

Its a great school teaching southern Chinese internal kung fu with herbs, dit dar jow, tea, herbs and much more. there are long fist forms, short fist forms, weapon forms, 2 person forms and a lot of material so you wont be bored at black belt. this is a clean well lit place that teaches individuals well and families and kids too. Everyone has a great time as there is something for everyone.
World Tae Kwon DO Academy in Carmel Valley, San Diego is wonderful. I have been training with Master Kim and can see the results of the workouts in just a few weeks. He is caring to the kids he teaches and values his time with them. He takes pride in his student's success and invests in the education and discipline of them.
