    make sure u clear that with ur administration, a few guys from my high school and i tried that back in the day and we got shut down before our first practice due to liability issues. try to get a teacher/coach to volunteer to moderate ur guys sessions (wrestling coach would probably be best, ours didnt like mma to much) before fronting the idea to ur administration

    There should be some sort of martial art that high shcool admins would be able to let thru. I mean it's not like we're expecting 15 year olds to train like they do in Thailand.

    This is why we don't tell the administration. No one goes in that gym anyway, and our wrestling team practices there with a few guys occasionally on the off-season. Plus there probably won't be any striking to avoid blood/injuries. We may only do SubGrap/Greco/Olympic anyway, so I don't think there will be a problem, as long as we go with the idea that we are training for wreslting.

    A school with a athletic director who told a guy who wanted to start a dodgeball club, "Get the **** out of my office" wouldn't want people doing Muay Thai in the auxillary gym.

    I actually also attended this class for a short time. I went there not for the Wushu class but specifically for the man teaching it at the time. The class used to be taught regularly by An Tian Rong, who has coached many national champions in China and abroad. But now he teaches there very infrequently if at all, had something to do with them not being able to or wanting to pay him for instruction so he left the club in the hands of the top students. I went there specifically for Baji, which is Master An's specialty, oddly enough only myself and one other were interested in learning it; everyone else wanted the flowery forms stuff. Yes all they are doing is glorified gymnastics and Master An will be the first to tell you that all that flowery stuff is worthless in a real fight.

    After he left I tracked him down and have been training with him ever since. Yes we still do a lot of forms and drills but the sparring portion is starting to grow due to my insistence with the other students that it is necessary. Master An has even confided in me that he likes the fact that I am pushing the sparring idea even if it is extremely slow going. He once told me," If your not fighting, your not doing Wushu". I think he would have liked to push the idea himself but was afraid of losing what students he had and at his age he can't get in there and mix it up.

    just be careful man, it would suck to get kicked out of school for something like this.

    and yeah Ronin i have no idea of how the club was before i got there, i just know that the way its run now is all "flowery forms". but yeah that is in no way an inditement of any previous instructors or cma in general
