    Killkeny school of chinese martial arts


    mma review ratings
    Aliveness: 8



    Equipment: 6



    Gym Size: 6



    Atmosphere/Attitude: 10



    Striking Instruction: 6



    Grappling Instruction: 2



    Weapons Instruction: 4



    i have been training at this club for a little over 8 months. Styles here are xing yi quan, wing chung, praying mantis, tai chi, yili quan The club situated in a large enough warehouse but shares the space with a kettlebell gym. Shifu Mark stapleton runs the kung fu classes. The gym is part owned by him also but thats not really relavent. The kung fu room is small enough but the class sizes are generally small. The most at one time I think was ten.
    Generally there's a very decent instructor student ratio being around half and three quaters, if i include the two seniors.
    Theres a decent ammount of specilised training equipment, weighted jars punching bag wall bag ect that are kung fu related but anything lacking can just be grabbed from the next room. But the sparring equipment is well looked but small in number.
    The aliveness generally ranges from 3-8 depending on the average level of the class, so i just gave it a 8
    School has a uniform which is t-shirt and black pants. uniform is expected to be ironed and washed.
    School also has a belt system. You are not told about the tests in advance and are given only based on aptitude not time. definately not a black belt mill.
    Grappling instruction- very little ground work, but a decent ammount of standing grappling and throws.
    Atmosphere- jesus the bant and the craic, never a dull momment. Very freindly helpfull atmosphere. Everyone takes it what they do seriously and arrogance does not last very long here. Thankfully not straying into cult territory, unlike a certain other ...
    obviously a nice bit of irish slagging too.
    Strikeing instruction - more emphesis is placed on punchs than kicks.
    weapons - small ammountof weapons. more supplemental training and its done every now and again.
    most likely i'm after leaveing out a load of stuff but thats enough writeing for now

    Do you guys have your own head gear/shin pads etc? do you have maybe a video of your sparring? cause i feel 8 is a fairly high number for a TMA school. Though it could definitely be the case.

    There is 4 pairs of head guards and gloves their. I can't find a video sorry but I will make an effort to get one. For now Ill just describe the general level of contact in the classes. Generally the classes rotate weekly regarding their focus, so grappling, throws, striking etc and sparring or freestyle application would be one of these. This would range in level of contact based on experience. But this is just my word so I'll try and get that video

    He seems strangely enthusiastic about what is, in all honesty a fairly mediocre post...

    Is he your brother? Is it your Mum?

    midomidi20133 copied Redbeard's post into a completely different review thread.

    So based on the plagiarism and the other low-content posting, he's either a troll or spammer or bot or all three, and I've reported him to the authorities.
