    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is Gracie Barra BJJ of White Plains, NY a potential mcdojo?

    check it out: http://www.gbwbjj.com/

    seems a bit queer to me... and i quote:

    Because

    "Your child will be taught some stuff that may or may not work, depending on weather your kid has what it takes to stick with it and isn't a *****"

    Isn't a great sell nor does it fit on a pamphlet well

    I've often gone with the assertion that for tactical purposes, The Traditional Artillery Arts are really the most effective martial arts in the world.

    Thoughts?

    Hudson: Let's just bug out and call it even, OK? What are we talking about this for?
    Ripley: I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    Not at all. Sean Alvarez is an excellent trainer and an excellent business man. I know several of his students that are law enforcement and swear by him. Some really hard training goes on up there. GBBJJ of White Plains is not a Mc Dojo.

    I think if anything Sean just happens to be a spiritual guy, but that doesn't effect the way he trains or the way the Academy is run.

    Train Hard, Stay Safe,
    Good Luck

    Is that it?

    One marketing phrase?

    Do you see outrageous fees or contracts? Black belt clubs? Kiddie sleepovers? Birthday parties? Extremely overpriced training gear?

    No, but he does kung fu and TKD. Probably not used to objective advertisement.

    So, what's the problem here? The site looks fine, and I'm not sure why you're getting a bad vibe from that one phrase.
