    My brother is up there and wants to join some kinda gym. He's mainly interested in jiu jitsu but would like to do kickboxing as well. Gym needs to be pretty noob friendly. Anybody got recommendations? Ring Sports United kickboxing and jiu jitsu club is really close and its the one he's leaning towards. Anyone famililar with it?

    AMC Pankration is in that area. I've heard some pretty good things about that gym.

    I think Monson and Kang are with ATT now. I'm pretty sure Barnett still trains at AMC. I know Sakurai has trained there before too. A college buddy of mine lives in Seatle and goes to AMC he's back home. He doesn't really like their style though. I guess their grappling is made up alot of scrambling and cowboy stuff as opposed to being tight and controlled.

    3 months is 95 per month
    6 is 90

    i go to leading edge kickboxing in renton. john staab, the teacher teaches kickboxing, jeet kune do, jujujutsu, grappling, as well as womens self defense and a childrens class. he just moved to his current location but it doesnt really have work out equipment besides some bags. one program is $75, two is $85, all programs is $95. i like it because its a non-competitive environment and there arent really any egotistical meatheads there. there is an advanced kickboxing class though that he is just starting that i just got accepted to
