Is there some sort of intervention for friends in a McDojo? A buddy of mine decided to take up martial arts around the same time I did. The difference is I had been thinking about doing it for years and spent a lot of time on this site just lurking and learning from the posts and the articles you guys put up. I have found what I think is a great school. I have only been there for two weeks but I feel I have what I was looking for.
I donít think my friend did the research. He started in late august and when I talked to him the other day he has already done ďknife defensesĒ and he is going to be testing for his next belt after just nine weeks or so, one or two lessons a week. I havenít been to his school but it sounds like a McDojo to me.
Have you guys had friends in McDojos? How did you broach the subject with them? I donít have the credibility to criticize his training. I should probably just point him to this site. Anyone ever had a similiar situation?
