    Ahhh...at first it looks like your classical japanese karate school...nice plain looking studio, hard wood flores, looks like a shotokan or a similiar style...but wait..what's this? investor information? instructor college?

    Those things are not good

    Not familiar with the guy, but it's difficult to tell these things from a web page alone.

    >I remeber reading one of their ads that said you could become a black belt in 2 years.

    It's one thing to say you could get a BB in 2 years and another to guarantee it. If he's guaranteeing (sic?) a belt in 2 years then I certainly call "McDojo"

    >but wait..what's this? investor information? instructor college?

    >Those things are not good

    Oh...of course. A business trying to get outside capitol to expand and making sure the teaching staff knows how to teach well, maintain a standard curriculum and effectively run a business is certainly a bad thing <rolls eyes>

    Yeh, thats the problem, some people think any Martial Arts business trying to make money is a MCdojo.

    You think Fairtex is a Mcdojo ??? Well, they advertise extremely, but noone would consider them to run a Mcdojo type business because they teach/train in Muay Thai.

    Remember the time in the 6th grade where you got your ass-kicked by that 80-pound short-kid? Got BJJ?

    It kind of screams McDojo, but you'd really have to be there in person to see.

    It almost sounds like they're trying to sell me a car.

    And why is that you foolish ball of soup? Did you try instructor college and FLUNK out? You are a fool! You always sucked in the dojo, kempo was not your cup of tea. Your a jack of all styles and a masta of none! BELT COLLECTOR. I bet the guy would kick your ass! jackass.

    Fear Factor, I've only studied two styles of martial arts, well 3, but that month of Shaolin Kung Fu I don't even count. What is your deal?

    I think the obvious concern about a instructor college is that they often lead to franchises which often lead to a decline in qualtiy in food service and taste, wait sorry about that I meant training quality.

    On the other hand when you've got students who you've been instructing for many years who want to start teaching on their own they probably should go through some sort of internal certification.
