Okay, so I finally found some time to read your concern. From the sounds of it I would have to go with the first gym except for three things:
1. I'm always suspicious when somebody downplays another gyms abilities, like "dropping his hands while throwing a kick in a video or picture." This is actually quite common while practicing kicks in a non sparring situation while trying to teach power. I don't agree with it but it happens.
2. Few students means more attention to you.
3. You need to go with the place you find more enjoyable. If you don't like the atmoshphere it doesn't matter how good the coaches are, you won't learn anything.
Thank you for taking the time to answer,

That's a loaded question. I'd have to say no on the surface but my speculative side is coming out.

Sometimes you can get hero super guy who wins everything but the rest of the club flags.

I still cant decide, I'm going again to both gyms to check them out.
I think I'm going to the gym one because of safety, being older, larger and claiming a kinesiology department makes it look better
What questions do you think I should ask the instructor?

I would probably tend to go to gym 1. At least to start with. You may need a bit of time to pick up the differences and a large gym "generally" has a better structured progression for learning. So any gaps,or short comings can initially be filled by that gym.
Further down the track?? gym 2 sounds like a good option. A smaller class gives a better instructor student ratio (as you already pointed out) and therefore will be able to more easily improve your game, provided they're a legit gym. But the pool of ppl to train with is smaller.
In the end?? its goin to come down to where you enjoy being the most....Unless you intend to go pro,then who cares if you like them,so long as they get you winning lol, but even then,being happy at training is goin to be important.
