Wow... just wow.
Kudos to Bunyip's kickass muckracking skills. Seriously, something should be done to expose these cocksuckers for what they are. Seriously, I figuire a local newspaper or tv station would chomp at the bit to make an expose on these fucks. This is a complete outrage.

The problem is that $400/month is really not that unreasonable for a 1-hour private and a couple group lessons each week. Carlos Machado charges $300 for a 1-hour private, and $50-$100 an hour for a private with a BJJ black belt is pretty standard.
The real issue is the complete crap that that West Wind is teaching for that price, which is a lot harder for a TV station to explain in a couple sound bites.

You can argue that their business practices are unethical. A lawyer could probably argue that they're making their customers honor contracts they signed under duress. I'm no lawyer, of course, but even if this **** is legal (which it gets by on the skin of its teeth if it really is) it definitely merits media attention.

Perhaps rather than hall of fame, Bunyip should have "Bullshido Deep Cover Agent".

Thanks Bunyip, for a great read, your undercover report was truly inspirational. I'm glad to learn that you survived the McDojo experience with an unwashed brain, and an intact bank balance.

**** you Bunyip. You're worthless and this whole thread is a waste of time.
Not really, but with all of the Bunyip nutriding around, I felt I had to say it.
