    Basically if you could move anywhere, what place would you move to train with? After i'm done with college next year i plan on moving away from this city so minus well pick a place with a good school to train at.

    Agreed. I am from here and it seems to me that schools are everywhere...Business is everywhere.. Its not hard to meet people that train or want to. The housing market right now though is Terrible... It was great a couple of years ago ppl were makin money..Now it's going down so fast tho.

    Thailand or Japan... Shit, you can train anywhere in the world, might as well go somewhere that has a cool culture and hot chicks if you got the choice to :o


    If it's exclusively for training then Thailand for sure. I'd join one of the oldschool MT schools. Goddamn that would be awesome. Except I'm 6'4" so it might be hard to find people to practice with.

    good luck. Is it an english teaching program? That is really popular, and there's a guy who did it who had a blog for a while with some funny ass stories about the students and japanese culture in general.


    Damn I want to go there so bad.

    yeah it's called the JET program, you teach in like middle/high schools over there, i doubt i'll get accepted since they are looking for native english speakers and i have an accent when i talk, i'm still gonna try though

    Japan was very expensive. Brazil was a blast, but quite unsafe if you're out alone. It was pretty cheap, but very few english speakers. I have yet to get to Thailand, but I hear Lanma Muay Thai is a great camp, and is by far the least expensive.

    Well heres this thing. Is Vegas at it's lowest low? Because ppl are still buying houses right now, new and old and are unable to sell it for what they bought it for a year later...right now the market is bad in general. Buying houses sucks...Selling houses sucks..

    edit- what do I know Ive only lived here all my life and purchased 2 different homes in the last 2 years
