Classes Taught:


"I moved away from San Diego 10 months ago, but up until the day I left, I was at Ao8 every day for hours. The friendliest, cleanest gym I have ever been to. I liked the place so much that it made it difficult to commit to my move from the area, and now that I have been away at other gyms, it just makes me realize how much this gym stands out as THE best I have ever encountered. Ricky, the manager, is an awesome dude, and really fun to get in the ring with, even though he mopped the floor with me, haha. Always enthusiastic about training and fitness. Calvin and Danny were awesome, personable coaches and taught me a lot in a short time. Towards the end I was mostly into the boxing, but the Muay Thai classes were excellent as well. They even have a No Gi JJ class (or had, I have not been by in a long time) I really cannot recommend this gym enough, if you have your doubts, go take a free class and I am confident you will be sold within the hour.
