View Full Version : Gyms in Japan
Hi there guy's,
I'm going to Japan in march and want to do some training while i'm there.
Just wondered if anyone could recommend any good gyms to go to. I've heard crazy bee's is a good one. Any others??????:confused:

I trained at www.aacc-sports.com with Abe, I really enjoyed the training there.
Yuki Naki's gym is very good, they used to do a free day time sparring session which was interesting.
Reversal Gym was ok, but the session we did was more for beginners.
We went to Killer Bee's (they are now called something else I think it is Rats) but they was closed, we knocked on the door and there was a horrible sounding dog behind it so we legged it.
We went to the pancrease gym, but they wouldn't even talk to us.
Where are you staying?

Akiyama has his own gym in Tokyo, it looks nice but have no idea what the training is like.
Thanks guys. I'm staying in Tokyo for most of the time i'm there so all this info helps.

Tokyo is pretty big, it is easy to get around using the trains but it takes a bit of getting used to AACC is in omorri which is a bit of a trek if you are in repongi.
I still talk to Abe over email, if you want me to give him a heads up let me know.
Thanks Spenna. Gonna find out exactly where we are staying in Tokyo. Will be intouch soon mate.
