Kyokushin, Sanshou & Pradal Serey in Ottawa, Canada
(Mods: I don't know if this thread is in the right place, so please feel free to move it as needed.)
I just wanted to pass along some info in case people in Ottawa wanted to try a different striking style.
It's fairly easy to find boxing, kickboxing, karate, TKD, kung-fu / wing chun training in Ottawa, and moderately easy to find Muay Thai training, so I figured I'd post these links for people who are interested in trying something different:
Kyokushin Ottawa Karate (Goudreault Dojo):
Carleton University Athletics Sanshou (open to the public; not just for Carleton students):
Neak Ta Pradal Serey:
And here's some info about the styles for those of you who aren't familiar with them:
YouTube - This is Kyokushin fighting
Sanshou / San Da:
YouTube - 2003 Sanshou World Cup Highlight
YouTube - Pradal Serey (Khmer's Boxing)
I've trained at Neak Ta Pradal Serey and it's my opinion that they're top notch. They're not a big budget school but the training is great. I'd gladly reccommend them for beginner newbs as well as experienced fighters. I've signed up for the Sanshou course so I'll post up some feedback after my first lesson. I'll most likely be checking out the Kyokushin place soon, too!
