    That was a list of oxymorons.

    Jumbo (large) Shrimp (small)
    Friendly (same team) Fire (shooting at)
    Worthy (skilled/worth a shit) Wing Chun (worthless martial art)

    It is pretty simple dude.

    I would think the signs would be about the same in Montana as everywhere else.

    Not all shiny yellow stuff is gold, and even if it is gold, it's no indication of being shiny and yellow.

    Apart from that, producing yellow shiny shit is a quality one can't contest.

    Seriously? Somebody upvoted that crap? WTF, people?!?!? This is going to YMAS, on principle. The only "advanced" thing here is this retort, and even that is questionable.

    isn't this or something similar stickied somewhere or some shit?
    Here's an idea, if you don't like it - report the post instead of just adding a no value post to the thread.

    Better yet, help the newb by pointing to the sticky.

    It's tough to tell if the school has good MT if you're completely knew to it. These are my rules for looking at a school:
    1) the teacher's (kru) fight record is important
    2) the STUDENTS fight record is even more important: every decent, well establish MT school will have at least a handful of successful amateur fighters. This will tell you not only that the kru is a good fighter but that he can teach effectively
    3) there is a big difference between classic MT and MT techniques for MMA (eg: some techniques you are less likely to use if your opponent can try a double leg takedown). The teacher and students should have done at least some fights under MT rules (ie with knees and clinch)
    4) BONUS: the best schools will have the senior students (and sometimes the teacher) hold pads for the beginners ( at least some of the time). Pad holding is an art -- in traditional MT, only seniors hold pads. In North America, this is less common (but much better if it happens). Let me know if you want more advice.
