    ??????????

    Why is it so hard to find a school worth going to? I like bjj, but they don't include strikes kicks, and multiple attackers (which cross training with muay tai doesn't have either or weapons). I would appreciate if someone could lead me the way, I moved to new castle, got out of the bs I studied and am looking for a class to teach with more of todays reality, something that i can take and give a hit, that will teach weapons to use and disarm, fighting multiple attackers, a real art that is taught the correct way. In america, I am sure it is hard to find something that isn't watered down, but still looking!

    Which New Castle, upon tyne, new south wales?

    You're unlikely to find anything that's got good grappling and good striking. Get good at one then cross train. Or go to an MMA gym and try to learn it all at once. If you really want a chance against multiple attackers I suggest bringing a few mates or something with a rapid fire setting.

    The actual article: Finding a good martial arts school - No BS MMA and Martial Arts

    The most important thing is to make sure they spar (practice unscripted against resisting opponents) on a regular and frequent basis.

    Hi, garrity17, welcome to Bullshido.

    Now say thanks to Lindz, visit the School review section of Bullshido and start training at a serious MA school.

    With more mat/ring-time your ideas of multiple attackers/weapon defense will give in to the benefits of normal MA training. Hopefully.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, but I wish bullshido would have the schools/dojos/temples with the areas they are located.

    Spoiler:
    OP wrote New Castle, not Newcastle. That and in his first post he was looking for people in the Philadelphia area. My google-fu is strong :)
