Can you guys take a look at the below link and tell me your opinion?
McDojo or does this place/instructor sound legit?
Also, what about this Hoteikan system? Anyone know anything about it?
I cannot comment on the credentials of any of the instructors, or what they teach.
It does not look to me to be a true traditional japanese jujutsu school. That would require them to actually be affiliated with a koryu Japanese ju jutsu ryu or ryu ha. For example, Tenjin Shin'yo Ryu, Sosuishitsu Ryu, etc, or even a gendai budo ju jutsu system.
Look at the judo program they have, it seems to be inline with a good club. Although some instructors have USMA rank, they do not seem inflated.
McDojo involves shady business practices like expensive terrible contracts and pay for rank. I thinking you are asking whether its Bullshido which involves made up history and impractical techniques. Their JJJ is the Hoteikan System according their website which a quick google search claims to be a modern Jujutsu formed from JJJ, Judo and Karate. The fact they are straight forward on what they teach isn't Bullshido. On the topic of whether they teach effective techniques + they pricing/contract structure would involve a visit to the school.

Declaw, did you ever check this dojo out? I've been looking for a Japanese Jiu Jitsu school in our area for quite some time, with no luck to date.
Well, I just priced them and it's $145/ mo. without contract, $129/ mo. with a 1 year training agreement, plus a $25.00 startup fee, plus any fees for the Sensei's organization. I'm sure they're a good dojo, but too expensive for me. They probably cater to the Scottsdale crowd, which isn't necessarily bad, but not exactly what I'm looking for.

Something tells me if you look up Scottsdale Community College, you will find judo etc. for a more reasonable price.
EDIT: apparently they only offer "Self Defense" ( no description other than it includes ground fighting ) and Aikido. Mesa has a better Phys Ed dept. They even offer Bagua.
