What are your thoughts on this? Is it disrespectful? I recently joined up with Fighthouse BJJ in NYC and directly across the street a Studio X has opened up. They have a big ass flag/banner hanging out their window also. Now, is it all fair game and just competitive, or is it rude and disrespectful to open a gym right next another? I know in midtown there is a big Circuit City, and a bigger Best Buy opened up DIRECTLY next door. The two are actually sharing a wall, and from what I've heard, the BB is smoking the CC. But that's big corporate bullshit. I've seen McDonald's open up across the street from BK's and Home Depots open up right next to Lowes all in an effort to push the other out and basically steal customers, but I always assumed it would be a little different when it came to martial arts. Yes it is a business, but cmon, it's a pretty big city. I also know Ronin and NYSanda are pretty much right next to each other. I don't know if there's any beef there, but I also found that odd. Any thoughts or similar experiences?
