That's horrible, if a legit instructor wants to incorporate MT into his curriculum he will seek out a qualified MT practitioner and have them teach, many schools here are owned by BJJ guys who bring in other coaches for other aspects, (boxing, MT, Greco). it's rare to find an instructor who is legitimate and a badass in say, BJJ AND muay Thai. Meybe they have trained both...are okay in both...or really good in one and shitty in the other. But most likely this place is going McDojo.
and LOL at his "that is how you learn bad habits" talk. His technique and footwork is probably plagued with horribly bad habits if he is picking it up from an intensive course.

You got that right. We started adding Aikido classes at our school, but it's run by an Aikido master and is seperate from the other classes.

but he saw ninja tabi in the changing rooms... how can we discount the urgency of his plight?

I think some of the key factors missing are how long the instructor has been working stand up prior to the camp in question, how much of the instruction will be coming from the main coach and how much by specialists, what the "bad habits" comment was really in connection to (e.g. fucking around in someone's basement on a heavy bag after watching the protector) etc.
Frankly, the OP raised my douchebag alert.
Or maybe he was getting owned in the vidio and didn't want a lower belt/newer student to see?

I am going to do savate at my school. I like it, the way it looks, the training methods,etc. But i am going to bring an expert in and help teach the students and myself until we understand enough about it
