    Khun Kao,

    Do you know anything about the Crazy 88s location in Elkridge? This was the location I was asked to scope out...

    I am joining crazy 88 tonight. It really seems like a friendly and good group of guys that train there. Additionally, they go to tournaments at least every other month, if not every month. The prices are fair, the school is clean and the owner is very professional. Come down and try it.

    Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with that gym. Can someone provide a link? Who's coaching there?

    THANKS!

    I was seriously considering joining Lloyd Irvin's school in camp springs. But there was one HUGE turn off. They were the "invitation only" classes. What a load of crap. I was willing to pay the montly dues with or without contracts. But once I pay, I expect to be able to participate in any class I choose not hope to get "invited" to join in a particular class I'm interested in. I am a Judo player and would like to learn Sambo. It seems to me that there are no AUTHENTIC Sambo instruction in all of the D.C. metro area. Straford Sombo was the real deal but as far as I know they no longer exist. Too bad. As far as Lloyd Irvin goes. I'm sure his schools have excellent instruction. But the exclusive invite classes seems childish and gimmicky.

    I don't find it gimmicky... invite only classes are there for a reason. We train hard in the regular classes, but the invite-only classes are a whole other level of intensity.

    It ensures that the guys who want to push themselves can do so in an environment with those of like minds. I personally have never seen anyone excluded that pushed themselves, showed interest and strived to give the training 100%.

    I've been a student of Lloyd Irvin's since 1997. I can't recommend his Camp Springs location enough. He is a brilliant instructor and coach, plus Mike Fowler will be teaching there again full time in 2009.

    Crazy 88 is also a great place to train. Julius Park and Danny Ives run a great program there.

    I train at both places and at Top Flight Martial Arts in Aberdeen, MD too (another team Lloyd Irvin affiliated school run by Ron Stallings).

    Raging Monkey is correct, the invitation only classes are not for everybody for very good reasons.

    In that case I, take back my criticism of the "invite only" classes. It does make sense. I plan on trainning as hard as I can but not to the level I once did. I'm 40 now and my job is physically demanding. I can't risk injury for that reason. So I may not ever qualify for the high intesity classes. Next week I plan on giving it a shot and try their 30 day free trial. Perhaps Lloyd Irvin's Academy is as good as I've heard.
