Needs more words. Do you only spar knockdown rules or do you do others as well? How much time do you spend on kata and breaking compared to sparring?

Why did you rate N/A on Atmosphere/Attitude and Striking Instruction?

As far as I know uppercuts are strikes to the chin. Perhaps you mean body shots? Maybe a body shot with an upward scooping motion?

ah, sorry. =D
I forgot about those. And we didnt do grappling and dont learn weapons so I'll leave that as N/A.
Well, sensei calls those kind of strikes as upper cuts=/
I'm not very sure on what they're really called. I'll still edit it =)
Sorry again, its my first review here.

If I am not mistaken, your aliveness score should be more around a 8 or 9, since your school does not have full-range sparring (kicking, punching, standing and ground grappling). Nothing personal, but 10 indicates that you train at all ranges of fighting, and at a high level (near professional). Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Other than that, it sounds like a great school!
Let your anger be like a monkey trapped inside a pinata; waiting inside, hoping that the children don't break through with the stick.

Pretty good review. I'd check the place out if I lived in Vancouver. I saw the same drill (taking punches to the stomache) on fight quest when they went to Japan for Kyokushin. They did that full force, but that was TV.

Only thing I might say is the instructor/student ratio requires some justification for a 10. It sounds like your Sensei is there for every class, so how much individual instruction do you get each class? Are there other blackbelts or assistant instructors, and what is the class size usually? I'm not saying its wrong, just that 10 is high and I think a score that high requires some explanation.
