    Well, I know a couple guys who spent lots of time and money to train at a MT school that Master K supposedly teaches. They said they only got to see him once in over 6 months of training.
    Both agreed that the class was pretty good, but still felt like they got scammed.
    I don't blame them. That's like paying for a Cadillac, and driving home with a Kia. The car might run good, but it's still a bait-and-switch.

    I kinda hope someone can prove me wrong, since the McDojo-ism is the only thing keeping me from training there. The place I'm referring to is called The Edge, in Elmwood Park, NJ. I'll probably check out a class in the next week or two.
    It does seem kin of funny that they teach Muay Thai, boxing, San Shou, TKD, Hapkido AND BJJ under the same roof.
    Also, the webside conveniently forgets to list prices not only for the classes, but for seminars as well. Makes me wonder if that's because there's a contract fee.

    what's the big deal about teaching all of those arts? It def brings in a ton of peeps. It will cost you, there will be a contract and the seminars will cost you. So, what is the big deal? It's most likely a very good school.

    I pay 160 a month, I am in a three year contract, it has a kids program. Some people here would say it has hard elements of Mcdojoism here and thee. But it is a good place to train and worth it.

    I don't know the story about "Edge Martial Arts" apart from the fact that one of Master K's instructors teaches there. If he only comes around once every 6 months or so, that kinda sucks. The instructor should try to make arrangements for him to come out more often if they are using his name so prominently to promote themselves.

    I'm one of K's instructors as well, but our advertising does not list Master K as an instructor at our school. It simply mentions that I was certified to teach under Master K....
