    I never said I wanted my points addressed. As the owner of your school, your viewpoint is hardly objective.

    And my girlfriend WAS looking for a school to practice martial arts. Your school simply failed to meet her standards for martial proficiency.

    Also, I'm not sure why you feel my name is some form of internet mask. I am an Airman 1st Class, and my name is Kai. It's really quite simple.

    How long does a person have to spend at your school before they are qualified to pass judgment on what you are teaching and how you are teaching it?

    These are our guidelines for the numbering system on he reviews.

    How would you rate your own school, if you adhere to those standards?

    Also, Kai, upon re-reading those standards is there anything in your review you would alter? Also, is there any pre-exsiting relationship between your school and this school you'd care to disclaim at this point?

    Keeping in mind, we rate primarily the quality of fighting being taught at the facility - personal growth of the students and business success of the instructor are WONDERFUL but not the focus of these reviews. (by the way I, personally, as a Gorden Gecco type, think it is a capitalistic masterstroke that you have your students PROUD of how much they pay and how far they drive, good work on the marketing)

    Also, pedigree is wonderful to have in the world of martial arts, but it doesn't really speak overly to practice. Defending his critique of YOUR curriculum by saying "I learned from a guy who learned from X so stuff it" is not, I hope, the best you can do.

    Also, you don't really teach a drop into a low stance as a rear choke counter, do you? Because that's literally like teaching a student to defend punches by parrying them with his nose.

    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Taking great care to adhere STRICTLY to the rating guidelines, I have indeed changed my ratings. Equipment and Gym Size were upgraded from 5 to 6, and weapons were downgraded to 1.

    My gym has a karate program that I am not affiliated with. Therefore, I had no prior bias against this scool before I went and saw SEVERAL classes, and had my girlfriend's FIRSTHAND experience. This review is as close to an objective view as can be reasonably achieved.

    My main concern at this point is that with the other review in this thread averaging with mine, this school looks to be, at first glance, a decent one, which it is most assuredly not.

    Uhm... usjedi... Would you mind posting some video for us of the full contact, full range sparring in minimal safety equipment that qualifies your friend's gym for a 10 in the Aliveness category?

    Anything will do, really. Doesn't even have to be particularly good. In fact, even if it's awful, at least it shows aliveness. You shouldn't have any trouble finding any considering that they do it regularly, right?

    Doubt you will see any video's. Sounds like a typical, less than stellar, borderline (if it isnt already) McDojo. Complete with loyal deluded followers.

    or even some video from any class showing the students doing drills with progressive resistance, culminating in using the techniques in free sparring with full resistance.

    I've sent the owner this email.
    Ms Pitassi,

    It has come to my attention that you vehemently disagree with a review of your school posted on Bullshido - The No BS Martial Arts Community. Although I stand by my original assesment, I like to keep an open mind, and would like to give you the chance to have an effective rebuttal. If you agree, I would be more than happy to document (on camera) all occassions where my review was incorrect, as well as any personal statements you may have to add. In this way, you an be given the oppurtunity to disprove my reiview of your school.

    Also, you seem to have mistakenly assumed that I somehow represent the Karate program on East Main Street, but in all honesty, the last time I took karate was age 9. Also, I find it highly insulting that you think my visit was some sort of sting operation on your school.

    Again, If you wish, I will gladly come an video-document anything you wish me to see in an effort to disprove my evaluation of your school.

    Respectfully,
    A1C Kai Kennedy

    I sincerely doubt anything will come of it. However, I'll be suitably impressed (and admonished) if she does step up and allow you to take some video.
