There are actually some kickboxing classes at WEB that I go to. I really, really like that place, but if for whatever reason (it burns down, a comet punch destroys the building, everyone gets turned into geese) I stop going there, MT would probably be high on my list of things to go to. Either that, or go back to my BJJ roots.
For the most part I'm happy with pure, simple boxing with the occasional kickboxing class. Keeps me on the straight. I've been clean and sober (of bullshido/self delusions) for 5 months now.
I plan on going to a judo school.that teaches karate. hope its kyokushin.
I mean, judo can't be THAT bad right?
mrbadguy, what do you think of bushi ban?
Sadly, I actually visited that place (before I settled on trying out Shotokan Karate). Their childrens class was so god awful horrible that I didn't even wait for the adult class. I mean, they didn't even do anything other than play games like "JUMP OVER THE ROPE!" or "LETS PLAY TAG!". Some of those kids were fucking green belts. IN TAG.
This page (and video) should give you a hint on bushiban.
I didn't go to their adult "MMA" class, but the guy I talked to said it was 45 minutes long, once every Thursday. I wanted to train more than that, and their kids class sucked, so I didn't pursue it further. Mind you, this was a year ago. But basing it off of the classes (plural) that I watched, you need to run from them, before you catch their shittiness, suddenly start wearing harry potter glasses, and come up with nun chuck katas (which I saw kids practicing). They even had the audacity to practice the Katana form and the Chinese Broadsword form side by side. Tsk tsk.
As for Judo, there are some BITCHIN judo schools around here. Diamond back judo is really good. In fact, Team Tooke is really sexalicious from what I've gathered. Elite Martial Arts is just a generally great place, and I think they have Judo as well.
I don't know where you're coming from (as in, I live off of 610 and blady blah), so it's a little harder for me give you my opinions.
Is saying sexalicious really warranted? I'm sure you can find a better adjective that isn't quite as silly/retarded sounding.
First, let me bash bushi ban a little.
I know a kid(highschool senior-like me) who is completely fucking OBSESSED WITH
You'll understand when you're older. After you've seen them, you will feel a rumbling come forth from thine loins. Your gi pants will form a classic boxing tent, and your face will become quite flushed! Then you will know that Mr. Bad Guy used the proper adjective; right after you look for the rest room.

First, let me bash bushi ban a little.
I know a kid(highschool senior-like me) who is completely fucking OBSESSED with Bushi Ban.
He is about 5'6 120. indian with heavy american identity. and a pretty good fighter and private of the US army.
he just got his hard earned black belt at bushi ban. AND hes the president of the only MA club at my school.
aside his righteous reasoning, mild biggotry, and what he calls "indomitable spirit"(he works pretty hard)
hes a douchebag. pretty well known for being a douchebag. hes a kata state champion. douchebag
Bushi Ban has him completely fucking brainwashed, and he self appointed himself sensei.
despite the fact that hes never there to teach.
we got into a discussion about chi and bruce lee. I was being the typical arrogant MMA biased douchebag while he was being a chi fairy:
notable quotes from him:
"In Bushi Ban, we actually believe in chi; Chi is Torque: it exists in the philosophical sense, yet not in the physiological sense"
"I think that you have a personal problem with authority"
"I'm pretty sure GSP respects his master"(dude, you self appointed yourself sensei; the club is empty, sensei of what? you're barely even here and besides, this is a free country: I want to learn how to fight without putting up with yourettiquette bullshit)
"those ($25) mats don't need to be cleaned, you won't get an infection"
"if it bothers you that much, I can throw you on the ground, I don't care"
"Master zuhair has X TL;DR credentials, and if you can't respect him, I think you have a personal problem"
Umm...I'll respect Mr. Zuhair when he does the following:
stops calling himself master
does not force his 15 year old, bitch ass son into MMA
stops telling people that weight training makes you slower without factual evidence
builds a state of the art weight room
buys some kettle bells
stops calling his cardio workout program "kickboxing"
stops calling a completely made up art "karate"
stops looking like a queer
stops eating curry
gets a less annoying kids MA program
cleans his fucking mats("he cleans them in the morning, which makes no sense" -wrestling state champion)
gets someone certified to teach BJJ
stops making up katas
stops talking about bruce lee
gets better restrooms
gets showers state of the art showers
gets a wrestling coach to offer wrestling
stops giving kids black belts SRSLY
stops wasting class time on katas to get a superficial belt
stops being a monopoly on MMA(****, I think the only place houston fighters come from is team bushi ban)
has an open gym policy
stops offering weapons classes to make money
stops incorporating bullshido martial arts into his game
stops demanding respect; it is earned
stops making you wait a fuckload of time for him to preach at you
that's the day I'll respect that guy.
indian kid is also a naruto fan
Do you ever shut the **** up?
