    Defenite Villari/USSD spin off..weird seeing them on this part of the states. It's funny how they just change the name of the studio but keep the same manual. Go to any USSD or Villari webpage and compare their dojo rules and etiquitte to theirs, it's pretty funny, oh and a nice history section from the USSD manual.

    I am always suspicious when they don't quite say which style they teach. The T'ai Chi section has that problem, too. I know of one kempo dojo that actually invented a T'ai Chi style because they couldn't find anyone to run their T'ai Chi class.

    I vote a definate no.

    If you get past their front page and do a little reading you will soon realize they are not McDojo. Check out their consumer education page:

    http://www.shaolinarts.com/pages/overview.html

    Some of the ideas expressed sound pretty anti-Mcdojo. For example:

    "Be aware of long term contracts. You should be able to pay month to month in some form. Being forced to sign contracts is really a strong indication students leave that school after a short time of study. Contracts are often designed to keep you, or at least your money, at the school when normally you would have left"

    or

    "In a sense, a system is only as good as the instructor’s ability to teach it - to develop those skills within you. Some instructors run martial arts studios as shrines to themselves. Having pride in yourself is important but an inflated ego is a sign of a weak personality."

    Their Chi development may be questionable but other than that, they seem to be an honest organization.
