    Help

    Does anyone know anything about Grandmaster/Sensei Frank Williams? He has a dojo in Bowling Green, KY and I want to know if it is a legit place to train. Matt Banks is an instructor there now also.

    A few pointers
    It seems to suck

    " spar for Karate or as it is called in the Jujitsu/Jujutsu arts "Randori" against one or up to 5 opponents at one time with and without weapons."


    First learn to fight against one opponent also why mix randori with Karate?

    " If you train to defuse, work your way through the situation or problem and be calm,"

    Good idea

    How you train is how you will re-act in a real situation. If you train aggressively you will act or re-act aggressively in life. Many schools train this way

    In other words WE HATE ALIVENES AND FULL CONTACTZ MURDER BLOOD SPORT!!!1!!

    They seem to have McDojo tendencies



    I dont know about pricing in the USA but doesnt seem to be to expensive for Muay Thai

    They RED FLAGS FOR MCDOJO

    But who Knows maybe they have The Real Muay Thai? You could go to a trial Muay Thai Class and see how it is
    A few videos of how a legit Muay Thai Class should be



    Also a lot of Bag hitting, mittens and shields (The Class should be focused on this) Push ups and warm ups
    Combos:



    If you heard or see any bullshit like
    TKD OR KARATE FORMS IN MUAY THAI
    OH WE DONT LIKE TO FIGHT OR SPARR IN MUAY THAI WE DO IT FOR THE SPIRIT

    Go the hell out of there
    Ask if they compete in Muay Thai or Kickboxing they must do it to be legit

    In the end Its your choice just a few pointers, maybe someone can find a better school near you, If there isn't go for a trial class and look out for that red flags
    GOOD LUCK YOU ARE GONNA NEED IT

    Go read the rules of newbietown again and calm down.

    What you want to do is try a class or observe. See if there is any sparring, check and see if they have a fight team, see if the instructors have any competition records and pay attetiong for tales of the deadly.

    Things like Pressure points, One hit sparring techniques, compliant training and fanciful stories that are too good to be true you should avoid.

    This. If website design is any indication of training quality, stay away, as this site seems have been developed at around the same time the Internet was invented. The section on MT in particular seems to go after the historical and fantastical (usually something CMA's use to draw in potential students) instead of describing much about modern MT or what one can expect in terms of techniques, etc. DEFINITELY an unhealthy amount of text dedicated to groin protection throughout MT history.

    Oops. Just read the OP closer. Don't know how this got turned into a MT post, which is why I jumped on it, but it seems that you were just asking about a place to train in general. Sorry I can't offer too many opinions on the other arts advertised on the site, but IiF's advice is pretty much universal unless you want to learn t3h myst1cal
