Their Kali instructor passes muster with Tim Waid. Tim's a dick, but is a nazi about his standards. Also that facility looks pretty cool.

Although, I don't actually see a kali class on the schedule........you may want to contact them.

what raises a red flag to me is him teaching Ving Tsun primarily when he claims he's certified for Thai Boxing and Pekiti Tirsia Kali (both invidividuall superior to WC/VT)
I thought this entire forum has already come to the conclusion (via means of ridiculous amount of empiracle and anecdoctal evidence) that Ving Tsun/Wing Chun don't work.

Not sure how far you are from Denver. Can't recall where Wheatridge is and am to lazy to look but if PTK is what you are focused on and are near Denver you might also look into http://www.ptkcolorado.com/. I don't know anything about these guys, just found their site. I may be relocating to Denver soon so I have been looking into places to train.
There isn't a whole lot on their site but I'm sure they would provide more information if you contact them. They also seem to be affiliated with Tim Waid.

For the same reason we had a guy who was training under Gokor and Gene Lebell in austin teaching VT..........he's done it a while, is personally attached to it, and enjoys doing it and teaching it. People don't generally require better reasons for doing than that.
