Word from them is you get a FREE 1hour lesson (to the value of $66 - how could you pass this opportuinty up?)
Me? I live a drive away and its tough finding time between work, family and my own training - especially for something that doesnt mean much to me.
I got details, but wont give them out over the net, even tho its on their website, which I also wont bandy about, as their marketing machine seems in overdrive already and I wouldnt want to put pressure on their sales team. (I dunno if I can respond to PM's yet)
JP, thanks - I appreciate you had a knee jerk response
I know the BJK has some serious issues, but where I train actively encourages cross training, we hit hard and train hard (learn to take a hit properly, bruises are commonplace, and learn to hit in a correct manner, placement, body movement) also including what I have seen called "pressure testing" and it all depends on a students level of skill and willingness to have a go. We often discuss (and train) the "traditional vs street" validity of techniques. The class has some "fighters" and some people who just train cause they like to, and many have done other arts previously. The dojo I am with is in south Brisbane.
many of the instructors have lots of ancient burmese tattoos
who pays the insurance on these?
One student got his knee dislocated through a kick, another shattered his elbow, one got knocked out
personally, if these kind of injuries are happening, I think it refelects that the instructors have little control, or awareness of their students' ability or the students have little skill. If your training at the right level of intensity for your skill (and the quality of the art) then these injuries shouldnt be happening
The videos available on the website are more than enough example in my opinion
At the end of the day, im not going to give video evidence or photos to PROVE this is not a BS art.
The proof is in the putting - whatever art you train in - hope that the day you need it isnt the day it fails you
I also no longer feel the need to prove it.
