    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Redline Fight Sports and Martial Arts/Boston Sanda

    Very cool new school in Cambridge MA. Switched my kid there from Sityodtong due to the location. They have San Shou, Wrestling and MMA classes. The San Shou standup is *close* to muay Thai, but different. Modifications for TD defense and throws off the standard kicks.

    There are a lot of fighters in this school, and there is a big focus on counter muay Thai strategy. The grappling instruction is mostly free-style wrestling as opposed to BJJ.

    All in all, it's a very interesting mix of styles. As an MMA style, the best example would be Cung Le.

    Sorry I don't have more info but it just opened. I'll add more later if that's possible.

    I didn't mean to discourage you from posting a dojo review - it's good that you did so. I just think you might need to adjust some of the numeric scores to fit the established standards laid out in those stickies.

    OK, sure. I don't want to post misleading numbers. Where's the info?

    Thanks.

    OK. I read 'em and lowered the Gym size and Grappling Instruction to match standards. If the numbers seem high it's because the gym is run by the best San Shou team in the country. It compares well with my son's other school (Mark Dellagrotte's Sityodtong Boston)

    Thanks for the tip. I don't mean to get cranky, I just naturally hate rules.

    Additionally, this school was already reviewed by Arbiter:

    It's not actually a new school, but it recently relocated and changed its name from "Boston Sanda Kung Fu Kickboxing" to "Redline Fight Sports and Martial Arts." So that's probably the cause of the confusion. It's definitely a great school, from what I've heard.

    No, it really is a new school. The old school was a kickboxing-only gym. The new one is a MMA gym. There was no MMA, BJJ or amature wrestling at the old school.

    Yes, but the Coach is an asshole. I was in this San Shou tournament once, and he kicked me in the head really really hard, and gave me a black eye that didn't go away for a month and I lost.

    Yeah.
