Current members say:  My visit occurred between classes, so I was not able to get member feedback. If you are a member, please feel free to leave your thoughts on the facility and training.

The breakdown: This is a small, new gym. Smaller classes should mean more individualized training. While the gym looked bare bones, the training seemed anything but. These guys know what’s up. Kru Snake Blocker has an impressive background and as demonstrated in their “Tip of the week” video has a very clear and thorough teaching style. In my opinion, a must for anyone looking to up their stand up game.
