    MMA is a risky endeavor. If you dont know what you are doing then someone gets hurt. Not bloody nose hurt but broken arm/elbow/neck hurt.

    I am NOT saying that MMA is t3h d34dly...I am saying that it takes an experienced teacher for it.

    Unfortunately the vast majority are TKD schools.

    I had a guy at my school say he was going to teach a MMA class.
    I asked him when was the last time he was in a MMA fight.
    He said "Well, never."

    He watched a few videos and now he thinks he is an MMA teacher.



    I also had a guy in our school offer to teach a ground fighting seminar.

    He asked me if I wanted to attend. ($35 each person)

    I replied" You have had 12 hours of BJJ training and you are going to teach a seminar?"

    I think it is faster to find TKD places that are NOT Mcdojangs.

    north dakota has prob the lowest rates in the country, many places around the country its over 100/month

    Yeah..I agree there. If they are free then the practice wont hurt.
    But I wont pay for them.

    I showed him my Judo belts.....and politely turned him down.




    You need to go and take some classes. Ask for the teachers experience in said Arts field (MMA...etc.)
    Then let us know.

    there is an ATA school here, cant recall the name of it, but I was talking to a bouncer about MA and he said he teaches MMA at an ATA school. I asked him how long he had been doing it and he said about a year and a half, and his record (local tournaments) was 2-4.
    I stand corrected.......

    The Bullshido has started then....how sad.

    And? So? But? Therefore?

    You've found a BS McDojo, now what are you going to do?

    At least go attend a couple of classes and write a scathing Dojo review.......with the current contest you could even win fabulous prizes!!!

    started a topic TKD McDojang

    TKD McDojang

    mostly TKD focused but they teach other styles as well. Kung Fu, MMA. I know some people who trained over there and said it sucked, the teacher had no respect, and they had a green belt teaching weapons class. Just a few of the many complains I have heard about it.
