Therien Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing
We practice techniques with no resistance from uke which is ok when your first learning. We used to spar alot in advanced kickboxing now we don't anymore because the instructor says too many people get hurt. The odd cold day in hell when we do spar i am placed with someone who doesn't want contact and i would prefer to go full contact.
Well maintained could be cleaned more but everything in good working order and get new stuff regularly
Gym Size 6
The gym itself is a decent size but since they are only interested in recruiting as many members as possible the mats are always packed to the tits with white belts in evenings there is 3 different classes going on at once and there is absolutely no room and iv'e been kicked and kneed in the face several times from stray feet of people being thrown. It's difficult to spar when you can't use any footwork without bumping into someone else
Instructor Student Ratio 1
Sometimes i wonder if the instructor even wants to be there most times we are left unattended on the mats working on the same technique for 40 minutes while the instructor sits in his office. He shows up 15 minutes late and finishes 5-10 minutes early. He hands out belts to whoever does the test i seen a guy get his orange belt and he totally froze during his test and couldn't complete any of the techniques.
Everybody talks **** about everybody including the instructors. Higher rank belts telling me to be gentle with them when i train because i always give 110%. The guy is a sales pressurer he straight up hounds people to buy every new product they have and has tried just about everything to make a buck.
Striking Instruction 7
It's only getting a 7 because Jean Yves Theriault teaches once a week there and he works us out and doesn't treat us like a bunch of pansies and he's got alot of patience with his students
almost non exisitent we used to grapple alot more but not so much now.
I used khalis once as a white belt and a bow once before but mostly non existent
