    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?

    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.

    This link http://www.maunlimited.com/mau website_files/page0005.htm has got all the info you need. Call them and ask for an appointment ... after all, it is difficult to judge a MA school, just by their website

    I quote "Joining A Martial Arts School Is An Important Decision, So Please Take Your Time And Get The Facts"

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.
