In our area there are some awesome martial arts schools. We are pretty lucky to have so many talented people in such a small area. I know that people often want to compare one school to another and have that sort of pride about where they train. It's a slippery slope though. We all teach the same kicks, blocks and punches for the most part. I would even dare to say that we all try and teach the same values that make martial arts so great. Every now and then I will hear some rumblings of students that are unhappy and glad they found us. That to me is really cool in the fact that they love martial arts so much to continue it just wasn't the right fit. Just remember there is plenty of room for great schools in Spokane and each one has something to offer. Schools will come and go and that's for variety of reasons such as lack of business skills, ego, poor customer service and so on. Don't judge anyone on technique or about teaching instead get back to me in 20 years and see what sort of people were produced from their martial arts training.
