Thanks for the school suggestions. I wasn't aware of Dallas jiujiutsu. I'll have to check it out since I have more time to kill this fall. and I think anyone in any martial art in Dallas knows about Saekson Janjira's place.
Mesquite to Richardson/Plano is a bitch of a drive though. especially in the afternoon. Training's world class from what I hear though.
I'll definitely shoot a e-mail to the vonerichs.com admin for some additional verification
and let my friend know that his "instructor" is more or less BS and/or confront the guy and see how he rationalizes his claims.
It sounded and smelled fishy but I didn't want to kill his enthusiasm
bashing someone and sounding elitist by calling it out without knowing for sure.
Thanks for the input. and I'll post with any interesting updates as they come.
