I'm so tired of bull**** schools. *Rant inside*
So let me tell you guys about my awesome adventures in the Martial Arts world and why I suck so much. Because I am actually pretty athletic, I just don't have very good teachers.
Let's go back when I was 12 years old. At this time, my dad had been giving me sporatic lessons in his jarbled amalgamation of (r34l) TKD and Muay Thai, that I just really didn't pay enough attention to (and now I wish I did because my dad won't give up the goods anymore). ANd so he gets tired of teaching me so he just throws me into a TKD school somewhere. So I climb up the ranks, I make it to my First Degree BB in about 3.5 years and I'm like 16 or something. I accomplished a bit in those years as a TKD'er. I won a few state champions and such and was going to go to nationals, but couldn't afford it at the time. I was helping to instruct classes at the time and after I realized I was getting raped (I was working 60 hours a month and getting $100)
Then, THEN, my faggotry TKD instructor pulls off an investment scam with a lot of students, takes several SEVERAL thousand dollars and runs off to London (so I hear, that's where people have seen him), leaving his school behind and leaving all sorts of **** in his wake. Some guy picks up the remnants of the school and takes it up. So I think, "Yay! I can go back and train again."
WRONG. 8 months into it, he stops paying the bills so my buddy (who he left in charge) and I, have to let the students go and direct them elsewhere. He doesn't pay him the several months of pay that he owes him and the electricity gets shut down and we eventually get evicted.
Then I started renting a gym out and having it open to the public to come train and trade skills. That goes great for a while, but then I took a sort of hiatus because I want to go back into formal training. Now here's the problem. The nearest good gym is about 2 hours away and their hours are weird, so I would have to drive 2 hours, workout for 1 and drive 2 hours back. I just can't do that right now what with school, work, etc. And there are NO gyms in this stupid, godforsaken, son of a bitch town. So I will plateau where I am at as far as skill level is concerned and never progress.
So **** you all for having good gyms. **** this stupid town for having such shitty gyms. **** bullshido motherfuckers who train bullshit to people and force me to get ulcers for having such a hard time finding a decent school to go to. I want to strangle someone. ****.

I'm just fucking tired of not going any further. Is it really that hard to just offer ONE good school? Just one? ****, I mean we don't even have a good boxing school here that I know of. We have ONE judo club that is non-profit that practice newaza randori, but the skill level of their students aren't all that great and it doesn't sound like they really compete very much.
FUCKITY **** ****! I think I'm going to go to the ATA school tomorrow and break their windows or something. That'll make me feel better.

There just aren't enough of us, dude. Serious MA'ers are NOT a majority, even in the community.Monkey Ninjas! Attack!

Hopefully you'd inspire them to kick it up a notch.

ANY judo is good.
It goes with the training regime aka 'aliveness'.
They may not compete much because they are not up to the level yet, and from what you are saying it's probably because they lack motivated students so as sfe said go there and train you can only bring everyone up...Martial Arts is like sex, if you over complicate it with exotic sounding names, theories and principles, you end up fucking yourself in the ass. -Ronin69

I know how you feel dude. My town has hardly any schools and I have a 4 hour round trip to get to Gracie Barra in London whenever I want to train.
