    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone know anything about this school?

    Hey, Im wanting to know if anyone knows anything about this school:

    http://www.completemartialarts.com.au/

    Its just around the corner from me, and when I went to watch a lesson, I saw alot of focus mitt drills and some takedowns that looked like they were from Silat.

    The club offers classes in Muay Thai, JKD/Kali and Hapkido and seems to also have classes specifically for grappling and sparring...Shouldnt there be grappling and sparring in everyclass? (Note: According to the news page, they are opperating on a modified timetable for the moment.)

    Anyway, if anyone goes to this school, Id love to hear what you think about it, the sorts of things you do and your opinions of the instructor.

    It's good that they include _ing _un in their standup curriculum. Otherwise there could be gaps in their game.

    Could simply be a legacy of their JKD heritage.

    I mean, WC could simply amount to the centerline theory and straight blast, and trapping range could be used in the same way a lot of PFS guys use it, in referring to the range of elbows, head butts and knees aka. the clinch

    But yeah, considering the instructor has his instructorship in WC, its unlikely.

    Damn, and they were so nearby as well!

    Some people aren't in it to spar hard and grapple and just wan to get fit and pretend they're learning to fight. Gotta cater for all sorts in this game.

    If they do have sparring and grappling it should be worth checking out if it's as conveneient as you say. If there's no contracts and you're savvy in the least what have you got to lose?
