American Martial Arts in Jefferson City, MO
A friend of mine is interested in putting her son into martial arts, which would be just fine if she lived in St. Louis where I could recommend a few good schools, and a crapload of bad ones. But she lives in Jefferson City, 2 hours away.
A quick Google search brings a few results, one of which is this one, the American Martial Arts Academy. http://www.jeffcitymartialarts.com/
They look like they mix a lot of Christianity into their arts, I am willing to let that slide if the training in fighting is good. I want her to pay for martial arts, not seminary school.
But they have a lot of instructors listed on their page, several of them with a Sensei title. And a dietician on staff.
It smells to me, but I could use a professional opinion from some of you guys. I need to pay a visit to my friend soon anyways, so I may pop in and see the facility and talk to the staff in person. But if it is total crap, then I will save myself the headache of dealing with them and concentrate on some of the other schools around.
