    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Bob Carver's Martial Arts Academy

    Any warning flags here? I've observed a couple of classes, seems fine in person. This is where I'd be doing Muay Thai.

    Oops. Oh yes, the link:

    $20 Canadian for the intro (30 min. private session plus two regulars), $95 a month afterwards. Not bad, since my current dojo is $90 a month. Now that I think about it though, I should check if they want fees for ranking exams.

    Not many choices for MT in Ottawa, Bob Carver's also one of the few schools in Canada under Eric Paulson, and I have gone to a Dan Inosanto seminar that Mr Carver put on.

    If yu ask around, Carver's been in the same location for a long time, many people in town came up under him. The club has a good solid reputation.

    That's reassuring. Turns out testing is included in tuition, so I think I'm set. All I need is my work schedule...

    it looks like an amazing school. Ronin MMA also looks like it has a lot of qualified MT instructors too, but bob carver trained under dan inosanto. i'm not sure what the Renzo Gracie school has for MT teachers...

    i'm looking to get into MT this summer

    The MT instructor at OAMA has trained at Fairtex, amongst other places.

    whoa.

    on their website the only MT instructor they show is a shotokan karate blackbelt who wants to start competing in muay thai...which is pretty shady. but i didnt know they have a guy who trained at fairtex

    is that where you train at? i wonder what the teaching is like there compared to ronin

    My apologies, I guess the original MT instructor for OAMA has moved on, my comment is not current. Guess I should keep better track of former associates.

    don't apologize! i heard somewhere else too that they have an instructor who trained at fairtex, but it just seems weird they only have a karate blackbelt on there as the instructor, cause it's a Renzo Gracie school, and they wouldnt have a tai chi guy teaching BJJ, so why have a karate guy teach muay thai?

    have you trained there before? ronin? what school do you think would be better? i want to start training muay thai
