    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Just incase anyones heard of these places, a few dojos I'm looking at

    http://www.eastwestmartialarts.com/

    If I go here, I'd probably take Kyokushin over BJJ (I don't know, I like hitting arts I guess), but I'm looking at taking MT over Kyokushin over BJJ over everything else.

    Michigan Martial Arts
    23327 Orchard Lake Road, Farmington, Michigan

    No website, but all it says in the listing is they teach MT. I e-mailed the guy to set up a visit and to ask about pricing.

    Cooper Kickboxing and Muay Thai gym
    16849 W Warren Ave, Detroit, MI 48228

    Website's under construction, but I like the sound of a gym over a "dojo", simply because gym sort of hints at a cheaper price (I know, it's a really stupid reason). I'll more than likely e-mail or call soon to set up another visit after I finish my visits to Warrior Way (can't afford) and hopefully Michigan Martial Arts.

    This site seems a tad shady. Meditation, and no clearly defined classes or what they teach. That and a $110 dollar/mo fee seems to make this one a bad choice. But I guess the instructors are pretty dece...dunno.

    Kali Academy
    1310 W 14 Mile Rd Clawson, MI 48017

    Nothing else besides this.

    THat's it. I'll check out a majority of them, but I'm hopign someone in the southeastern Michigan area can confirm a few of them.

    They teach Kyokushu there, not Kyokushin. An understandable mistake, but you'd be very disapointed if you went in thinking you were going to learn kyokushin, and then spent your whole time working bjj with a few strikes.

    I used to live in south-eastern Michigan. I've heard good things about the school and I saw a few fo there guys fight in matches. They're pretty good. There used to be a Muay Thai/San Shou gym in detroit as well, but I'm not sure that they are still there. From what I've heard the Kali Academey is pretty good too.

    Damn, you're right (about the BJJ). I'd still take BJJ over nothing, or actually overanything that's not Kyokushin or MT.

    And, Dempsey, which school are you talkin' about?

    Sorry about that. I was talking about Cooper's Gym.
