I've been training in martial arts for 16 years now, and have been to every major MMA gym in the state. Aboslute MMA is by far the most technically sound and hardcore place on the list. Not to mention the fact that it has a family oriented feel to it. There is a place for everyone from beginner to professional at Absolute!!!
