San Antonio martial arts gym recommendation

Looking for a gym that offers BJJ and Muay Thai (or other striking). Any SA area folks w/recommendations that would fit the bill?

Google fu shows a handful of options, but this is the kind of thing I’d like a recommendation for.

Since nobody else has responded I'll throw this out there. I train BJJ in DFW. I'm not overly familiar with the gyms in the San Antonio area. A good litmus test for gyms is seeing how they do in local BJJ tournaments. I glanced at NAGA and grappling industries it looks like Ohana Jiu Jitsu did good. Some people say tournaments aren't a good indicator of self defense but that's similar to people that say USPSA isn't good for self defense either.

That's an avenue of evaluation I hadnt considered. Many thanks!

I cannot recommend any BJJ or Muay Thai gym to you since I live in a different state. But I’ve been training Muay Thai and kickboxing for over 10 years. If you are new to this, I would highly recommend incorporating physical training. It will play a crucial role because you won't stand a chance if you have a good technique but meet a physically stronger and fitter opponent with a similar level of technique. I also know that gyms can be pricy sometimes, but there are tons of ways to work out at home or in your garden with the best compact home gym.
