Lots of fun at the AKA Gym opening in San Jose, April 3, 2011

I've posted two pieces (so far) about the opening of the AKA (American Kickboxing Academy) Gym at 7012 Realm in San Jose.
The Herschel Walker piece includes a video with Walker talking about his faves in MMA now and his take on some of the fighters.  The AKA Gym piece is about the opening event itself.  Both have slide shows, in an attempt to give a feel for the fun the crowd was having.

To be honest, I went to the opening out of curiosity: the PR advance touted it as being innovative (ho hum, I've heard THAT before). I stayed because it was a blast.

The event was family friendly, and the families were there by the hundreds.  It's a beautiful facility with training rooms on the ground level and a wellness clinic upstairs.  I saw some fitness technology I hadn't seen before and talked to some some smart trainers about what they were doing.

All in all, I'm not going to say much about it here on Silicon Valley Fitness, because I'm constantly updating my videos, slide shows and articles over on the Examiner.com site.

If you're an MMA fan or fighter, go on over to the articles.  Post your comments about your experiences at the AKA Gyms or your impression of the opening if you were there.
