    My problem with the site is the very questionable, probably non-accedited Ph.D and the security credentials that seem blown out of proportion "lets see how many cool words I can use to make me seem like an agent or involved in intelligence". We don't have to tell your brother whether this place is a McDojo or not, there are enough signs of desire for self glorification that we can simply say that he can probably find better instuction elsewhere. Whenever a martial arts teacher commissions his own "I love me portrait" the warning bells go off. He probably is sincere in his desire to help children, but as an adult your brother is probably looking for something else in a program unless he wants to park any kids he may have there for day care.

    Isn't this in Austin? Sheesh, there must be a hundred good schools in Austin.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    I just called them to let him know he is up on these threads. I also said, he should just promote himself to 10th if he has a minimum of 20 years martial arts experience.

    I hope he comes on and defends himself.

    Thanks for the help guys. My brother-in-law is only like 12 or so and his parents asked me and my wife to help them look for a good 'karate' school as they are both very busy. I didn't go to the place, my wife did. She gave me the web site and the warning bells did go off. I asked for help cause, as some of you said, it is kinda marketed as after school care. However, I was nervous about the very young, yet very high ranked student instructors. The reason his parents won't send him to where I train is 2 reasons- 1)there's only 3 kid's classes all week and 2)there are not many kids there, the place where I go is geared to adults. I did some checking before I started going to where I go, my instructor is listed on Renzo's site, and you can tell with him the money is secondary. I just didn't post where I go cause I didn't know if that was frowned upon here. As you can tell I am a Newbie. BTW my wife was really taken in by this place, but her brother hasn't signed up quite yet.

    1bad65,

    Dont go by what people say on this forum..You ought to go there and talk to the people yourself, and try a class, NO NOT WATCH, try a class. This guy is doing his own thing, and people on this forum HATE that. SO my advice is to try them out and then come back here and report your experience. But the people on here have no clue what they do, they judge what they say about people and schools depends on their mood at the time they look.

    GO THERE and try a class yourself..

    1bad65,
    Keep in mind Jamoke is an admited self promoted 10th dan.

    I do agree with him on this. websites are deceiving. you should go there.

    Jamoke, Even you have to agree the portraits are a bit much.
