No offense to the OP and it might be the rating system is not properly explained.
But 10 for striking is waaayyy off. Even if he's a great karate instructor
striking 10, aliveness 1?
like titties on a basket ball, this review is useless.
Not to pile on Abyss, but I don't think that anyone can make a fair review of a dojo or club from a single free trial visit, unless they see something so shockingly bad that they have to warn the public.
Now being a crusty old fart who is likely to pre-judge things based on the quickest of glances, I'd guess that this club is so shockingly bad that Abyss should have to warn the public. The reasons for my guess are:
- shared space at a fitness club implies no ma specific equipment (this club used to have their own space years ago at Steeles and Hwy 27, what happened?)
- class full of soccer moms wearing lululemon, not wanting to break a nail
- big Dillman crest on the web page ('nuff said)
But this is all just conjecture
EDIT: no offence to Lululemon wearing soccer moms who work out at the shopping mall and have nice nails

yes pressure points.. on other students but no they don't hit back..
anyways i suppose 10 for striking instruction is far too high in retrospect.. i'm going to go and change it..
thank you for finding the name of the place for me i'm going to look into it...
why is there something wrong with the theory of pressure points?? i'm interested to hear what you have to say if you have the time...
Theory is all well and good. But can you make pp techniques work against a uncooperative fully resisting opponent in a panic situation? What happens if you miss that teeny spot in the inside of the elbow through the winter jacket?

I don't disagree with the "bonus points" arguement (e.g. if your block can make his arm tingle, that's a bonus), but I'm not going to aim for somebody's funny bone when I can punch them in the nose.
And "no-touch knock-outs"??? get real.
