    Ask them what they emphasise on, do they spar? What is their position on kata? Do they compete in point sparring or full contact/kickboxing competions?

    Can you get a straight answer about costs?
    Can you pay on a monthly basis?
    Is there transparency about what is taught to the higher belts?
    Is the founder/master regardeda regular human being, as opposed to a supernatural dynamo?
    Is there regular hard-contact (not point) sparring?
    Do they acknowledge that they're not as good at groundfighting as any specialist?

    If the answer to any of these questions is no, then **** it.

    from what i seen, i sat for a beginner class, there were 3 active teachers on the floor for the 5 students in the adult class....beginning started off with some loosening up, they used forearm attacks kicks and punches on the heavy bags that u can move around....then there was hands on 2 to 3 move combos , they were paired up....they ended with some form for like 5 min and that was it, the owner was nice as can be, he or his wife said they would answer any ques, the other teachers even talked a lil to me while the session was in progress, the longest people that were there were orange belts and that was at a years worth of training...the owner told me they dont really want to focus on belt ranking because "real training begins at the black belt ranking" overall great attitudes and a good envirornment, 100$ to register and 85$ per month....

    they also offer judo and jui jitsu programs, kids programs and cardio kickboxing....

    what does this sound like?

    also NICK CERIO!!!! the name a good indicator its good?

    hit me with all u know !!!

    thanks :biggrin:

    Who cares about a name? If they train hard then your fine.
