I am looking for a gym/dojo with the following:
1. Intense Training (possibly Muay Thai)
2. Young atmosphere
3. Reasonable duesAnybody know a place like that in Dallas?
Okay, so I'm not new to the martial arts with two black belts, but I am definately new to the Dallas Area. I crave the disciple I found in Taekwondo and the intense training from Shotokan. I would like to try something new that incorporates the things I loved about my previous experiences.
I really want something that will kick my butt. I like the group environment, competition (both in class and at tournaments), and the guidance of a teacher. I am leaning towards Muay Thai but I really have no preferance when it comes to which art.
My alterior motive is social networking. I was hoping for a dojo/gym with other twenty somethings who share my interest in martial arts. Dallas has some great things to see and do, but very few of them can be seen and done alone.
I looked into Lions Den after my co-worker visited the gym. She has never practiced martial arts (she took ballet when she was younger hehe) and she loved the the Lion's Den. Young crowd, instructors push hard, and cute guys (always a plus). But she overheard someone saying that monthly membership dues are $109! I can't pay $109 a month! I've got bills to pay! And a gym membership I can't get out of!
