    http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oid=1284160878

    from her myspace site...
    FITNESS/ SELF DEFENCE / PERSONAL TRAINING. I have been practicing Kixa Fitness and Self Defence for a continuous period of 6 years, I am also a fully qualified Instructor of Kixa to a high degree. Over a 6 year period I have traveled to the far east 19 times to learn, develop and improve my skills and abilities in this remarkable training, this has enabled me to become a better instructor with a very strong knowledge base.

    bwahahahahahaha!
    Isn't it funny how training in a 5000-10,000 year old art for six years makes her look like she does very poor karate?
    The video of her in the hallway... ouch. Six years continuous training should have had her kicking better, blocking better punching better...
    If not for the obvious cultish over-tones and "we are a 5000 year old art" crap, people should keep away from Kixa purely for the obvious lack of proficiency from a 6 year student and instructor.

    Ok, the amount of Women only classes is kinda scarey. Also, should I let them know I do other Martial arts when I go, or pretend to be a total noob?

    If it were me, I'd tell them about your judo and tell them you're looking to add some striking to your repertoire... that way, if you come off as sounding like you know what you are talking about (which you may do... it's difficult to act dumb sometimes), they won't necessarily hear alarm bells and clam up.

    Honestly? I'd just get a feel for the place.
    If you go in with too specific questions ("I see from your website you claim a 5,000+ year history, where are the cave paintings showing your basic techniques?") they might suss you...

    You have to recognise the possibility that they know about this thread... and that any questions that are posted here for you to ask, could end up red-flagging.

    Just go in there with the intent of observing a class, and if you do talk to the instructor, play it by ear.

    Hidden Ronin - to be honest, they do all the talking so you won't even have to ask em that much... I couldn't get a word in edgeways. Just feign interest, and the bullshit will surely flow. I'd be interested to hear about the money situation, charges etc. Good luck

    i saw a demo a few years back when they tried to open a class locally. hated them ever since. they keep trying to open them/advertise, but now its a dfifferent instructor and its ladies only. i think i even ranted about it here... cant remember.

    they bugged me at the time - i know theres some mege threads on other forums, mostly focusing on:

    the instructor courses: ie you pay, go to indonesia, come back an instructor

    the kixa/kateda controversy

    if i get round to it, ill try and post them
