    New to martial arts

    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking for a good martial art school in Ottawa-Gatineau area. I read about how Fang Shen Do Kung FU sucks here so I decided to avoid that school. However, I am not too knowledgeable about MA and need some guidance.

    Jiu jitsu caught my interest and I was wondering if Therien Jiu jitsu was good. They seem to me in the same branch of McDojo super promoted self proclaimed martial artist as Fang Shen Do. Am I wrong ?

    Anyway, Im interested in striking, grappling and weaponry. Perhaps a more mixed martial art approach would be best... If so, where can I subscribe in the region ?

    Thanks a lot for your help. I appreciate it.



      I know diddly boo about your area, but the following are some names and addresses for schools that teach martial arts of styles generally approved by people on this board:

      Sambo Centre D'Entrainement Et De Conditionnement Physique
      1484 Scott Street
      Ottawa, ON K1Y 2N4, Canada
      (613) 761-6460

      Thai Boxing Academy
      306 Rideau Street
      Ottawa, ON K1N 5Y5, Canada
      (613) 233-6981

      Therien Jiu-Jitsu & Kickboxing
      21 Selkirk Street
      Vanier, ON K1L 6N1, Canada
      (613) 746-5402
      you asked about this place, and the link on google is to a MT kickboxing federation--could be good

      Beyond that, go take an intro class, see if you'll like the schools. Good luck
