    I'm curious if anyone has any comments on a guy named George Petrotta. I had previously not heard of him before I met him yesterday. There is lots of his bio info on the web but I was hoping someone has trained with him at some point or something.

    He was a guest in class yesterday. I was turned off by his Christian prayers at the beginning and end along with including in the ending prayer that any "lost" people should see him or his wife after the session. I may have lost all faith that I don't attend a McDojo.

    If he were there every day I would certainly leave. I'm not a Christian and don't appreciate having that slipped in. Just like you probably wouldn't like it if someone by another religion than your own came into your dojo and started asking to you to pray with them.

    I'm paying my dues to learn to fight and not to be converted. Religion has never been mentioned in class before.

    in truth i find his decision to act like that weird


    I'm a religiously affiliated. (lol)

    but i don't mind my Sifu praying for 20 secs at the end of class......he doesn't talk about conversion or any stuff like that

    it's all like "please give us safety" goodness

    Skip this school and go to a legitimate Hapkido (or other style) school. This is a church group mascarading as martial arts. There are tons of these in the midwest.

    Not only is the religious angle unsettling, but all the "Grandmasters" and associations have obviously given each other titles and ranks to an absurd degree. It is a creepy, incestual martial arts title inflation fest.

    I would say Sungja Do is a bad scene. Go for something else.
