I'm in Yorkton saskatchewan canada.
I NEED a new martial arts place.
I'm In a Taekwondo school thats WTF and run by a 5th dan, who happens to be the WTF TKD secretary general of Saskatchewan I think, and has high credentials.
Its still a mcdojo.
Contracts contracts contracts. and being put with people who are in terrible shape do drills as turtle speed.
I'm sick of doing drills like, Run to the middle, do five punches, and run to the end, and crab walk back.
we don't learn how to fight.
Now I know REAL TKD is good, but the stuff we do is next to shitty, and tournament training classes are done for me untill like after christmas.
I'm in a high school wrestling program that kicks ass.
but I need something more thats street applicable.
We have a "karate" club in yorkton, which to my knowlege is a mcdojo, just Kata after kata after kata out your ass.
(and no full contact sparring, just gay point sparring i think, if even that).
and another TKD mcdojo place.
now I have just discovered a Jiu jitsu place, called CAN-RYU.
The dojo in our city is super new, and ran out of a guy's garage, 20 CDN per month (thats like I dunno, 15 USD?)
http://www.pensemartialartsandfitness.net/index.html (This is the one the guy is teaching)
Can you guys check this out for me?
He also won't teach me till I'm sixteen,(Which I turn on april 13th)
It sounds good, he says he teaches more self defense orintated stuff, but does teach grappling, and seems to know what hes talking about.
When I turn sixteen I most likely will train here, but untill then I'm stuck.
So guys, can you please help me find more stuff in yorkton?
I'm sick of TKD , and want a good striking art or at least a good grappling art if I can't find a good striking place.
Much help wanted PLEASE.
Thank you in advace.

But it's not good enough for me, as in, I want MORE.
I want to become a good striker first, then take it to the ground if neccesary.

Good call become well rounded. Those Ju-Jitsu places look pretty cool try a class there. Does your old tkd school even teach a fight class? Or sparr full contact.

my tkd school HAD tournament training, which will be starting up after christmas, and we spar full contact on saturdays (albeit no head kicks, still a guy got his arm broken by a kick awhile ago, and then I fought him and he kicked my ass...musta been the adrenalin, he was fucking pissed off)
and got any comments on showing this guy how I'm mature enough to handle it/something like that?

Try to find a good MT or Boxing gym..that would be a good start.

I second the jujitsu school. Looks like they do some good grappling there. I liked this submission they have in their gallery: http://www.pensemartialartsandfitnes...tt_playing.bmp
Nice bicep slicer (or as my instructor calls it, the Russian Arm Screw!).
It said in his profile that he combines jujitsu, judo and boxing, and that he was a kickboxer. All this experience combined should be your best option.

OC kid, I'd do that, but I can't seem to find a place that teaches either in yorkton.
I also posted the help to see if any people here could dig up any more places to train in my city.
I'm searching but I'm not that good with finding stuff, And i'm really wanting to go with this guy, but I don't want to have to wait 5 months to start training.

Well the style does do pressure point stuff.
So you'll have to bare in mind that not everything they teach will necessarily work.

I trained at a Can-Ryu place in Calgary and it was pretty good.
