    So I FINALLY stopped by the school.

    Not really much to report on though... if I would have blinked I would have missed it, no big noticeable sign or anything on the exterior of the school.

    I happend to see a BOB bag dressed in a gi in the window and that's how I figured out what store it was in. Size-wise it was your typical strip mall dojo: 15ft x 30ft mat area with two hanging heavy bags, a small room in the back and a huge pile of focus mits in the corner.

    Unfortunately when I got there the main instructor guy was only training with 1 white belt. It mainly consisted of them doing compliant drills where they took turns throwing a lazy hook while the partner first struck the "pressure point" inside the elbow, grabbed the wrist of the punching hand, then used their free hand to hit another point on the neck with their forearm. They did that back and forth for about 10 minutes, pausing twice during the action to go consult a large pressure point poster on the wall as well as the instructor stopping numerous times to shake out his arms because they were "going numb".

    One other technique that he showed that I had to inwardly keep from cringing on was the difference between a judo throw and "his" throw. He stated that in Judo (because it's a sport) you "kind-of" hurt someone if you do this throw (I think he was trying to do an ippon seionage, but my judo vocabulary sucks), but his way involved turning the wrist over of the person he was throwing so that he "broke" the arm supposedly when he threw the person. I just nodded and looked on apathetically. Oh, and he never actually threw the guy, saying that he didn't want to hurt him.

    I DID get a chance to look at the school release form, though, and was greeted with more lulz. (I wish I had a copy, I'll try and snag one again if I go). But it stated on two separate occassions that the student's training could result in "injury, permanent disability, or death". Sure it's just him covering his ass but he definitely wrote it to emphasize that you could DIE at any point in the training. ...Oh, and he misspelled "martial arts" a few times.

    About that time another student came in, a blue belt, but I didn't get to stick around to see what else went down because I was already late for BJJ class. I asked him when his largest classes usually were so that I could get a better feel for the school, but he said the class size rarely gets over 10 people.

    One thing the guy has going for him, though, is that he's right next to this shool: http://www.trinitybody.com/ which was full of lots of hot girls doing kickboxing in the open air (the front of the school opens up a la Djimon's school in Never Back Down). I may go back just to check that place out. :smile:

    So ippon seionage from classical jujitsu is supposed to be some innovation you can only get at this retarded school?

    Ever seen this guy?

    The name describes it well.
    I am sad to say that I once paid money to spend the day "training the secrets of Kyusho Jutsu".
    He spent the day slamming unresisting new comers and failing to get the reaction he claimed it should produce.
    I had put the shameful experience behind me until I saw this thread - he used to be associated with Dillman (No mention of him at all on the website now though, royalties do build up...)
