"WE WILL BUY OUT YOUR CURRENT MARTIAL ARTS MEMBERSHIP !!!"
Nice idea - good marketing.
It's a shame I'm too old and cranky to try something new. Looks like a good school.

Yeah we're growing faster than any of us expected! It's coming to the point already that we have to have 2 instructors in each class because of the number of students, after only 5 months of operation!
I remember some of my old colleagues laughing at me when I told them I was going to have 60 students by the end of the first year. I mean, I'm only 22, and don't have any business experience.. but I think that's why people are drawn to BTC; they see that we are a no BS, REAL gym. Our motto: "Just say no to McDojos"

That's awesome Ba Bu. I liked training with Matt a lot on the few Fridays I got in at Kin-Tora, and if I end up in the Buffalo area again I'll definitely come check you guys out, too. Good to hear you're doing well and best of luck keeping it growing.
