Hey guys, I've been having problems finding a school to fit my schedule, and I finally found one I think I can fit in, just wondering what your opinions are on the school.

http://www.maunlimited.com/

Was probably going to take Combat Submission Wrestling, BJJ, Silat, Wing Chun and Kickboxing.

What do you guys think?
 
Uh... Going to need a little more information about the school in question.
 
Since you get a week of free lessons, why not take them and decide for yourself? Free lessons are ususally the best way to evaulate a place.
 
He claims to be a certified instructor under Eric Paulson and De La Riva. If true, it is probably a great place to train.

As stated, go check it out. Won't hurt to take a look.

Saw that too, looks good if it's true. Personally I would just do the CSW,BJJ, and muay thai but if you want to learn all that other stuff that's cool too. Regardless that seems like an awful lot of stuff you want to take from that school, you might just start out with one thing and then add others in later.
 
Just heard back in e-mail from the instructor, sounds like a great place, how does this sound?

I pretty much teach all the kickboxing and grappling
classes. I am certified under Ajarn Chai in Thai
Boxing, Salem Assli in Savate, Dan Inosanto in JKD &
Filipino Martial Arts. I am a purple belt under
Marcello C. Monteiro & Ricardo de la Riva in BJJ as
well as a coach under Erik Paulson for Combat
Submission Wrestling.

Sound like a good place to train?

Sounds like you answered your question. Get your ass over there and find out for yourself.
 
I'm not too familiar with those teachers he teachers under, are they good and respectable?

De La Riva has a guard named after him. It is also known as the Jello guard (don't know why). His guard is tournament tested and very effective. If the instructor is a purple belt under De La Riva, you're good to go.
 
Ok, thanks guys, I'll take the CSW, BJJ and Savate/Muay Thai Classes

Damn, that is one certified dude!
 
I have been training at this school for about a year. Chris, the head instructor is very skilled , but more inportant then that, he is an great teacher. Also, with his backround in BJJ and CSW, he combines the styles well into his overall concept for grappling.

We do gi 2 days a week, and no-gi 2 days a week, with a 5th day that varies between gi and no-gi depending on what we got going on at the time.

There's a good group of students too, which is imo just as inportant as having a good teacher.
 
Awesome Fightingfish, can't wait to start up.

What time classes do you go to ? Do you do any of the Kickboxing? Do you compete?
 
Sounds like a great school.
 
Other than Erik Paulson's name, sounds like complete McDojo shit, and if no one on here trains ther, it probably is. How long did each "certification" take? Hmm...And who the hell is "certified in Muay Thai" and wants to still teach wing chun and JKD?? Hell, I want to know where he got his purple, I'm calling McDojo bullshit.
 
Well there's a different opinion, what do you guys think? McDojo? I really have no Idea haw to figure out or pick.
