    Martial Arts Incorporated (Dublin, Ireland)


    For all those users in the Dublin region, know your McDojo.

    Martial Arts incorporated are the kingpins of Irish McDojos.
    I could list all their shady practices, but why bother when their websites can do it for me.

    http://martialartsinc.com/

    http://mmadublin.com/

    http://www.cqcireland.com/

    http://www.blackbeltprogram.com/

    http://www.fightingfitnessprogram.com/

    Note the number of different websites and names for the SAME gym.

    They're definitely notorious here in Dublin for being a massive mcdojo that teaches MMA without qualifications.

    And (correct me if I'm wrong Odacon but I'm pretty sure I saw this on boards.ie) they have a propensity for threatening to sue websites that critcize them.

    They threatened Boards.ie that they'd seek legal advice, if people continued to ask questions about them(?), but they really didn't have anything. Boards just agreed not to have any discussion involving them to be on the safe side.

    Not really, since they charge 1000 euro for a 12 hour "MMA Warrior" course:

    People asked some fairly straight forward questions, like what credentials do they have to teach mma, considering the proprietor would have been generally known as a point figting guy.

    I myself asked which of the instructors taught the ground work as none of them listed any such training in their bio on the site.

    As regards the sueing aspect of it, boards.ie already had legal difficulties with MCD, a promotions company in Ireland, and being a public board, and not specialising in martial arts, when they received word from MAI that they would issue legal proceedings, I assume they decided to err on the side of caution
