    ...

    I also found out that Go Kan Ryu is an anagram of Kan Go Ryu as GKR was originated from an Australian guy.
    It's actually not uncommon for employers to require you to pay for certain things, like uniforms. Take cops for example. They're pretty much required to pay for their own uniforms, weapons, and gear.

    And no, that's not an anagram. An anagram is a rearrangement of individual letters to make unique, real, words; and is intended as an intellectual challenge. Changing Go Kan to Kan Go is none of these. It doesn't rearrange letters, it doesn't make real words, and it doesn't require any intelligence to figure out. Try again.

    Finally, use the damned search function. You're not adding anything new to the discussion.

    You missed the mayb, the dam, the realy and the missing punctuation and capitalisation of letters, Tom .C, but goddamn you are funny. Your first reply to the OP still makes me chuckle outrageously.

    Hello guys!! first im not english so im sorry for any spelling or any other mistakes. Ive joined GKR two weeks ago, even after reading all bad things about it on forums and i have to say i have a hard time cus of what i read but thought about and im not agre with any of bad coments.
    1.door to door sail - honestly, whats wrong about guys promoting sport knocking to ppl doors.ertising and promoting, same like adverts in your tv, no buddy likes them but every buddy have to watch it! or bilbord on the streets, spam... is just a way of getting a client and it is a very genue way. as many ppl do not know there is such a opoortuninty and they never would know if karate-man wont knock to there doors. Many ppl thanks us for doing what we do, for some childen that might be only oportuninty to have better start in life, to do something interesting....
    2. no contact - well, maybe it is not perfect way of teaching maybe is, i gues it only depends from how much you put your self in it and from your Sensei. my Sensei is preety good, and is doing this from years, most instructors are good cus GKR is a fun job. i dont see much to not like about really. no contact it make a lot of sense if you realize that age range in GKR is 5 up to us you can hold on you legs. here is no limits, is the safes way of doing it in such enviroment and variety of students.

    3.working for GKR or just doing classes in my opinion is pretty valuble, and what im saing is not a brain wash, it is logicly thinking beautiful way of improvments for every buddy.


    is a form of adv

    No contact makes a lot of sense? No, it does not if you are learning self defense. If someone attacks you they are not going to stop 3 inches away from your face and wait for you to react. I've seen multiple people freeze the first time they are actually hit. Yes, even in a controlled safe environment at less than 60% contact. Guess what you are going to do under pressure?

    Most people do not like commercials. So, you just argued something annoying is okay because we endure something else annoying. Your analogy is poor.

    I'm going to agree with the following quote and your assessment.

    The only thing wrong with pedaling this **** door to door is that you are going door to door to pedal that ****. I would invite you and all other door to door sales people to stay the **** off of my porch. You fuckers interrupt all the telemarketers who call me all the time trying to sell me **** I don't want.

    Going back to your original comments about GKR being a scam,

    I would firstly like to assure you that I agree whole heartedly and secondly would like to shed some further damaging light on the subject.

    My fiancé did a broadcasting degree at Leeds University (UK) and part of her course was about libel and slander etc. There was a huge chunk of the course on the legalities of certain things like advertising and what not. The main focus for the section was GKR Karate as they had been sued (successfully) on at least one occasion for false advertising and "pressure selling". (this requires further research and could date back over a decade).

    Additionally, we used to have a friend that worked for GKR as an instructor. He did infact already have a black belt in shotokan so he was a valid instructor, however.. the majority of his work consisted of knocking on doors (sometimes late at night) to literally bully people into signing up. Obviously our friend realised what was happening and quit the job, especially after he realised that he wouldnt actually be teaching, just selling.

    I also now have an up to date location of their "instructor" training facilities. They use the studio hall at Xercise4Less on kirkstall road in Leeds. i train there myself everyday, for my own benefit and frequently have to stop myself pointing and laughing. Their "instructors" are all trainees with only one genuine black belt. They also use some office space to go over their "pitch" before they head out for a healthy Maccie Ds up the road... not to mention the half pack of fags I have seen them all puffing on.

    they are a disgrace to real martial arts clubs.
