Important Warning /Disclaimer: Most Mixed Martial Arts School Teachers Are Liars, Clueless, Not Very Good, Delirious, or Simply Delusional. Read to find out the truth about Mixed Martial Arts Academies.
Discover The Dangerous Pitfalls Most Mixed Martial Arts Newbies Experience When Starting Their Training.
Dear Prospective Student, In this letter I TELL IT LIKE IT IS and because of it, many fake martial arts instructors out there will hate me for it, and they will hate me forever, very few legit instructors will love me, but you know what I DON’T CARE….I AM SICK AND TIRED OF HAVING PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS LIED TO, AND HAVING THEIR TIME WASTED. MY MISSION IS TO INFORM OF WHAT REAL MARTIAL ARTS IS ALL ABOUT AND HAVE AS MANY PEOPLE JUMP IN MY SUCCESS BOAT, and I won’t stop until these fake schools are exposed.
Don’t Fall for the Usual MMA Suspects
Suspect #1: Martial Atrs School, Karate School, Taekwondo School that it is now a MMA school due to the grown pupularity of the UFC, but they are really a belt factory trying to be cool with the new kids on the block even though their skills are lacking. Usually Known a McDojos. One day the sign reads Naples KungFu and Karate and the next day it reads Naples Mixed Martial Arts.
Suspect #2: The Big Promiser. This is the instructor that makes promises about getting you into the UFC and he has yet to develop any UFC fighters. Instead he throws young guys in the cage without health insurance or proper training like if ihe was playing the russian roulette.
Suspect # 3: Martial Arts as Fitness Franchises that hire anyone off the street to run a Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiujitsu, or Kickboxing program. This is a great approach for the franchise owner because if the program stinks – no problem – he can just fire the instructor and start from scratch. This is not-so-great for individuals looking for a solid consistent training environment. ALso the head instructor only cares about one thing ….HIS PAYCHECKS…he is not a fool…it is not his school…the owner is not even his martial arts teacher he is just an employeee of the Big Box Gym.
Suspect #4: A bunch of tough guys and street fighters renting a hole-in-the-wall with no real experience competing or training beginners. Be careful if you train or are considering training in a place like this – make sure you have health insurance and know your own limitations. Chances of getting injured are high, of learning quality technique are small. Before you know it you think you are the next UFC superstar as this gusy will sweet talk you about how great you are because they are delusional. You will be thrown in a cage without proper training and lose your first fight by K.O!
Suspect #5: The Tiny School with a guy that feels because he is Brazilian that Gracie Jiu jitsu or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is his birth right and that anyone not Brazilian can’t be possible better than him. This guys rarely can kick higher than 3 feet of the ground, are out of shape, and run very unprofessional academies, on top of that their credentials are questionable. I personally, Roberto Torralbas, have developed a list of credentials in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competing in the World for 10 years and are internationally recognized as a top competitor . Two times Panamerican Champion, 7 Times National Champion, and many times Silver and Bronze Medalist at the European Championsips and Panamerican Championships, ADDC World Pro Trial Bronze Medalist Twice, I have competed in the so famous”Brazil Tournaments” and gooten Bronze, and in other international tournaments in the US I have more gold medals that I can keep track of. . I have defeated two Gracies, and I have produced better competitors in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that any other instructor in this town (3 Panamerican Champions, Many International Champions, 3 National Champions, World Championship Medalist, and a ton of Local Champions). Nevertheless I am not Brazilian lol so I must not be as good….I am the Cuban Guy. Don’t fall on the Brazilian Guy (who is teaching outdated Jiu-Jitsu) Fan Club. You are not the best because you say you are the best but because the numbers, results say that you are the best. I believe in results producing them and reproducing them year after year.
Suspect #6: The Teacher that has all the credentials but has not been able to pass it down to his students. I didn’t open our school to have guys praise me about how great I am. I did it to produce champions and thats what I have done. 2012 Usually in this teacher school is a group of guys that are tight with each other, call them self bros, and for an outsider NEWBIE to come in and expect to learn, well he will be fed to the wolves first as they need their egos inflated from time to time. You have to do some behind kissing too get their attention or their treat you like crap.
