American Karate Training Centers
So this place is right by my house, and i was thinking of attending it, however, i would really like to have someone here check it out, or see if they have any knowledge of it.
I sort of get a mcdojo vibe, but i really am not the expert here...
It also strikes me as odd, that the "sensei" has an am. record of 0-3-0. and no pro record...but not everyone is a great m.m.a fighter...
Can someone help here, plz

Just curious, but why can't you check it out yourself? You say it's right by your house.

Why don't you investigate and let us know...ask to take a few classes for free, most schools will let you do that.

Nothing crazy really pops up.There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

On his "Calendar" it indicates he is having a seminar with Dan Severn, go, be nice and ask to touch the mustache.

I called. He said that they can promote all the way up to tenth dan blackbelt, however, the guy is only a 2nd degree blackbelt. I don't know anything about american karate, but the logistics just don't make sense...
The rates are crazy low...75 a month for 6 days a week (unlimited), and they've been around a long time, over 20 years.
And i've googled all over, and even on the
website, there is no mention of that school, the instructor, and it explicitly states that you can not recieve a blackbelt until your 18. Surely the only person to ever recieve one before 16 would be listed SOME-WHERE!
Can someone in the know look into this, please.

Why don't you PM Tom Fox.
He is an instructor in American Karate and may be able to give you a little information.
