Go Kan Ryu in the UK
I have recently responded to an ad in the job centre to become an instructor of this dicipline. Having never tried before just wondered if anyone could shed some light on it. I`ve read some bad thing about it but you can never have enough knowledge when going for a job any thoughts would be greatfully received.
There are loads of massive threads about them on here. The search engine will give you all the info you need.
You responded to an ad advertising for potential instructors?
And you have no previous martial arts experience?
How long do they say it takes to complete the training?
Sounds very ominious to me.. has Bullshido & McDojo written all over it.
Doesnt say howlong. All it says is no experience required. The reference is WOJ/14481 for anyone who wants a look. Ive tried the search option but doent seem to work
Welcome to Bullshido
Searching with the name on quotes found this

It's the biggest McDojo in Australia & UK.
No contact karate style.
Intensive Sensei training programs which see belts as low as Orange wearing a black & white belt to teach people (verified - family member).
Door-knocking to sell their product.
Watered down shitty martial art that even shitty martial arts laugh at.
At least two people I've spoken to have applied for the instructor job and end up being telesales/door knockers.
Seriously, don't do it. You'll be wasting your time.
The following should also be pretty obvious;
Why would a martial arts organisation be advertising for instructors? Wouldn't any legitimate MA org naturally create new instructors out of it's existing student base?
Its mind numbingly shite. Even my striking is better than the shite GKR teaches.
Sorry to all it says trainee manager. But from what i`ve read on various forums today think i`ll tem him to shuv it on friday when i see him. thought there might have been some governing body to prevent that sort of thing.
