Hello /trv/ where else besides Thailand has a significant industry based around martial arts training and tourism?
As someone interesting in MMA, Id like to go abroad to boxing, dutch kickboxing, muay thai, BJJ, wrestling.
I know I dont need to leave the US to train, I just think it would be fun to do with my vacation time.
I also know where these styles originated and/or most popular. But I want to know if other places in the world have martial arts tourism that is as established as Thailand's Muay Thai camps.
Where is the best place to live?

Okay. So my girlfriend and I have finally gotten the balls to decide to move to another part of the country. We want out of Pennsylvania, for a lot of reasons. Mainly the climate. We've been kicking this idea around for years but to be honest we need some help in figuring out where we want to go and eventually buy a house and settle down.
Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone can give me some insight into certain areas of the country from a first-hand experience, as opposed to a touristy big-city perspective. We both grew up in small towns, and we're basically looking for that same life but just somewhere warmer. The only problem is that we have some very specific requirements.
The climate has to be warm. NOT sizzling insane 110 degree summer warm, but just much warmer than Pennsylvania.
I like to hunt and fish and camp and do all kinds of outdoor things. I am a huge gardener and this is also my career path. I would like to be within an hour drive to some true wilderness. No city park shit. Somewhere that I can be alone and feel lost.
We both want to be within a few (like 1 or 2) hours to a beach if that's possible, but we would settle for like 3 or maybe 4 hours max.
Now what really matters are the kind of people. Not scummy hicks or ghetto ass thugs or other city dwellers, just normal people.
Basically, we're looking for a warmer Pennsylvania. Can anybody please help us out?
PS, Hard Mode, Not California.
