    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    So I'm qutting Krav Maga and looking for a new place.

    I have been searching around for awhile. (there was a really nice MMA gym I went to today but its a little costly)

    This thursday I have a free class at Liberty Bell Judo and Sambo academy. Here is the website http://www.libertybelljudo.com/

    It's 125 a month for 3 classes a week. Which is a little more then Krav but lets face it my Krav training sucked. there is a promotion fee but I talked to the guy and he said it never changes.

    Now here is another place I have been interested in
    http://www.glensideshotokankarate.com/

    Yes my area is full of krotty places. I may take this later on down the line. Yes there are fees for grading and stuff but it makes sense since its a non profit school that pays to a higher organization.

    Though the whole sparring thing sounds sketchy. but I guess if the advanced people are any good that should be no problem.

    I'm asking advice. Any red flags to look for? comments? Bashing me cause I just realized that my old school sucked?

    Finding a good karate gym is very hard and even if you find one, i still suggest you to take judo.

    I've trained at a shotokan place that requires free sparring, starting at white belt. Any place, regardless of style, that does not have free sparring soon after a student starts training there, is a place you should not train. Don't go there.

    Just don't.

    I am also a shotokan black belt, we used to spar a lot and we used to spar with contact (not because of the instructors, it was mostly us actually)

    I am not saying it is totally **** or something. But still, If I had the chance to go back in time and start again one more time, i would choose judo or if i really want to do karate i would choose kyokushin.(there was no bjj at those time lol,i mean in my country)

    End of search. Go to Liberty Bell. No Bullshido there. It's a reputable judo club, plus sambo as well.

    Let us know how it goes.

    oh I was not saying one or the other. I am doing liberty bell judo. I was just looking for another striking art for the future. Also I am into Japanese culture a bit so I would like to find a good karate school.

    But aliveness and usefulness is top priority. I'll post how my class goes thursday
