    What is Gorindo?

    I've seen posters for a "Gorindo" school all over the downtown area of my city.

    I've never heard of Gorindo and Google doesn't provide many results. Do you guys know anything about it?

    I'm curious to know if anyone's tried this and what your experiences were like.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I've been seeing their posters all over the place lately. Judging from the video material on the website, it looks like "Generic Karate Style #13"

    It's a massive troll job. It has to be.

    There's no way they can say this while holding a straight face

    Gorindo does not in any way resemble what is known these days (erroneously) as Mixed Martial Art (MMA). We do not participate in tournaments. No mysticism, religion, ritual or mumbo jumbo is involved. We do, however, hold a great respect for trees.

    If it's a troll job, they've invested a LOT of time/money in a decent-looking website and postering campaign.

    They don't seem to hold much practical value for those of us that post here. But at least they openly state what they are... mind/body, no competitions, "holistic practices". Basically, they bill themselves as a softie martial art for those who are turned off by MMA competitions. Fine with me, I suppose. Someone's gotta fill that niche.

    Gorindo is like any self named art that doesn't believe in competition. There are thousands of such schools all over the world. No, it is not a troll job my old art had the same mantra and we sparred.

    They have a youtube channel, that's mostly karate-looking kata. Here's the guy kicking a wavemaster with point sparring kicks:

    I was referring to the "trees" part.
