John Anderson's grappling systems
I have been going to John Anderson's gym for a year and a half. 6'3 230 lb
Johnny John J Anderson who developed the so-called state of the art grappling and figihting system: Shu Gun Do is a former Marine, Chester county cop with a huge ego.
Him and his instructors often verbely abuse the students.
Once you go into his dojo, the walls are lined with pictures of him posing as a bad ass wearing a karate gi. Various trophis he earned in high school wrestling.
He has about 8 years in wrestling, Karate blackbelt, and a brownbelt in Judo.
He favors the ground n pound approach,. and little technique is taught.
He will have us pound a punching bag on the floor or fight our partners via wrestling and ground n pound and call that MMA.
Much enphisis is put on size and streangth.
For example. He often has the biger students fight and bully the the smaller weaker students.
he has been known to get into lots of fights in the past.
Though his system is pretty good.
He developed his own martial art from scratch called Shu Gun Do.
He created it from integrating Wrestling, with various forms of Karate.
The art is basically nothing more than a strraight approach to ground n pound.
The strengths of the art are putting preasure.
He often insults BJJ and claims his Shu Gun Do is a good ground n pound counter to the guard.
Big n strong is what he alway's pushes for.
The scedual is Monday thru Friday.

Classes at 2:00 am and midnight to 3:00am? What the **** is that about? 34 cent increase per month? Does that just carry on indefinitely.
I've not met this dude, nor do I know you, but if what you say is true, what a douche.
I'm commenting on this because it's one of the worst reviews I've seen. You don't even give the city where the school is located. Your ratings make no sense in the context of what you typed, and your typing skills need improvement.
Is this review even real? $287.64 for the initial fee and $92.73 for the first month? A 34 cent increase each month you are there? This guy must think there's something lucky about those numbers, because otherwise they don't make any sense.
Considering his rep, posting history, a nonexistant web page, and a name "Shu Gun Do" that doesn't seem to make any sense I'm banking on this being a joke review.

Has anyone clicked the website link? I did, and my work firewall caught it. Our firewall only blocks social networking sites, software hubs, and Porn. This could be a joke review, or even internet malice.
