    Vinton, VA - Optimum Martial Arts

    James Collie is the instructor at OMA. He has a good size training area per the amount of students. There is an abundance of matting and traning gear. He has some weights, heavy bags, focus mits, gloves, headgear, escrima sticks. rubber knives and guns.He teaches Karate and I believe he used to teach TKD. What I did was called a fight class.
    "Self Defense for the Street, Western Boxing, American Kickboxing, Submission grappling." This class cost me 65.00 / month for 1-1hr. class a week. We worked more on striking with the focus mits than anything else. Most of the grappling we did was to avoid going down or protect yourself when you got taken down. We would also do a lot of sprawling. We also did the Kali. I also enjoyed doing gun work there. I would bring my unloaded Glock into class and get a lesson on fast his knive could be! There is also a cross fitness training class that guarentees you will lose x-amount of pounds in x-amount of time. About the only complaint I have is he would let it get very hot in the summer time. Usually the fight class would consist of me and one other guy about my size which worked out great. Overall it was a relaxed & friendly atmosphere. My only reason for leaving is instead of having one 30 yo teaching everything I will have 3 seperate instructors for three seperate arts at the new school I'm attending.

    Oh yeah, one more thing I should have added was that we did a lot of acting, role playing for reality effect. He was a big Tony Blauer fan.

    How could you have learned anything of any real value in 1-hour a week workout? That's a rather silly concept unless you're having to pay more for additional hours.

    Why would you need to bring a real gun? Who are you, phil elmore?

    Any real benefit in training is derived from squaring off against individuals that are larger than yourself.

    Agreed. 1 hr. is not enough. More hrs. = more cash.

    Why would you need to bring a real gun? Who are you, phil elmore?
    Because you should practice with the gun that you carry so if you have to use it you are farmiliar with it. No, I am not Phil Elmore.

    That would be true if I was only to get in a real fight with people larger than myself. I agree that it is good to train with larger people but it is even better to train with different size, shape, and variety of people.

    So.
