    This has been discussed here before - if you search for Go Kan Ryu you'll find it.

    It's a commercial organisation - they're there to make money, not teach any kind of MA effectively. My take on this (and I've been to a couple of local classes - like a total dumbass) is that they don't correct poor stances/techniques because if you make it hard for little kids they won't come back, and that's their target audience - little kids who want to be able to say "I do Karate" in the playground.

    The fact that their ring is 9ct gold says it all. I don't think you can legally call that gold in some countries.

    I joined GKR and thought it was far better than any other martial art in the world. Because our Soke is God’s better looking brotherinlaw and he has the certificate to prove it.

    No but seriously I did join a while ago, I received my 9th kyu for just going to the lessons. And graded for my 8th.
    The grading was more like a moony mass wedding than a grading. I saw the Sensei’s wife signing the grading certificates before we had even finished it. And there was a 7th kyu grading for her 6th, that couldn’t even kick correctly. Guess what? She passed as well.

    There were five Mcdojos present that’s “Sensei’s” were all Black/White belts. And the chief instructor was only a first Dan.

    I have two friends that have just joined, I don’t go anymore. And I’ve tried to tell them what it’s about. One of them has said that he’s going to stop the bank transaction from going through.
    The other one however, hasn’t got a clue about MA and sees nothing wrong with it. As far as she’s concerned, Karate’s Karate. And as she’s paid her money, she doesn’t want to not see it through.
    As a last ditch attempt to make he see reason, I had a spar with her, and knocked her around a playing field for an hour.
    Mind you it wasn’t all bad as every time the spar went to the ground, so I had a load of fun getting her into all sorts of pins and arm locks. (Sniggers)

    Her defence was “But I’m only a white belt” looks like I’m going to have to give her a good seeing to after each of her gradings, until she realises that when she gets to black/white belt. (Which will probably be in a month or so lol) that she’s still getting beat by a guy who can’t walk more than 40 feet without having to stop from the pain.
    Gotta love co-codimol. I can’t spell it, I know.

    You obviously don't know me. I'm not a bit of a perv, I'm one hell of a perv. ask anyone that knows me. But that's got nothing to do with this thread.
    My point was that all the while my friend keeps going to GKR, she'll keep losing. If she went to a dojo that could actually teach her something useful, then in time she'd be able to fight.
