Anyone familiar with Fight Club Fitness (London, U.K.)?
Relatively new MA gym in central London, set up by Chris Crudelli who was the host of "Mind, Body and Kick-Ass Moves". I'm mostly interested in learning what the club looks like inside, how it's equipped, etc.

No , But I smell Bullshit,
"He was born in Birmingham, England, the son of Italian and Irish parents. He started learning martial arts when he was eight, and as a teenager lived with a Chinese family who taught him.
When Crudelli was 17, he moved to China, training in martial arts for 10 years.["
"He uncovered information on a little-known ancient sword fighting system developed by a Japanese master who taught young officers use of the sword based on strokes of the Kanji"
"Get qualified on the fast track ABC Instructor programme and learn the empty hand, knife, stick and improvised weapon system that’s so effective Chris Crudelli has taught it to front line UK military; inc UK Marine Corps, UK Ministry of Defence personnel, & Black belt Instructors of repute from around the world."
There is some real Tony Anthony stuff in this too:

Crudelli's claims and quasi-celebrity might even have been discussed here before, but for purposes of this thread I'm only interested in the new gym.

Very interesting website.
I have trained under him at a seminar and I enjoyed it. The ABC he taught referred to specific knife attacks. A simple way to remember the teaching.
He taught a nice Elbow drill.
Anyway I enjoyed it.
I look forward to reading with interest your experience of the training (and its costs).
