Style: All the fake stuff
I've been wanting to get back into MA for 10 years, but after leaving the Marine Corps, starting a family etc... it's been on the back burner. I finally just decided to stop making excuses and started looking for a place that offered daytime classes, because I work nights. This is one of the few I came across, and they also offered Crossfit, so I thought I would give it a shot.
I have been training here now for two months and enjoy it, the instructors are extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and courteous. I also feel that they do a good job teaching people how to strike in the Krav classes. I've seen RBSD instructors that never focus on the basics, like how to actually throw a punch, these people are not like that. The aliveness score is low because the striking is pad work, and the Krav techniques are compliant partner drills in my level one class. I don't know what it's like in the higher Level Krav classes.
I haven't been able to make it to the Thai Boxing classes because of my work schedule, they are only offered in the evenings.The evenings I have had off are on the nights when there are CACC classes, the instructor is very knowledgeable and gives every student pair one-on one time, this is a great class, my only regret is that I can't make it to every one.
After reading many threads about Krav schools on this forum, I'd say that this school probably ranks right up near the top of them. It suits me for now, but I am still looking for a place to train that is more alive. If you know of anywhere near Lakewood ,Ca that would score a few points higher on the aliveness scale, and that offers training during the day, please tell me about it.
The place is huge, there is no shortage of mat space here.
Oh, and before anyone asks, I live in Havasu, but I work in Long Beach, that's why I'm asking for a training spot so far from the location listed in my profile.

2-3 compliant partner drills. That's correct, yes? There is some light contact stuff, but not enough to give it a 4. I'm not trying to pad the numbers. I'm looking for a place with more aliveness, but apparently, my schedule doesn't match up with most legit MA schools.

I thought they did live sparring. Most Krav Schools do.

They may at the higher levels, I haven't experienced it yet. I can only write from my experiences.
