  • Spear dojo wangara

    Has anyone been to this place and what's your opinion of it? Would you say it may be a mcdojo?

    Looking to get into some sort of martial art to get fit. Have little to no experience with any martial arts so looking for options as to what's available. They do zen do kai and Muay Thai this is what I was looking at doing unless there is an other options.

    I'm north of the river if you want to recommend other places.

    Cheers

      They are doing 10 classes for $10 introductory offer just now. Then it's $36 a week for as many classes as you want.

      What's Krav Maga like?

        Krav is pretty good, a lot less relaxed in relation to the older styles (for instance kung-fu or japanese ju-jitsu you need to learnt the phrases in there language) plus there are a lot less "tools" (the guys that will try and prove there better than you all the time).

        Definately a lot more relevant in street scenarios, best way is to give it a go man, all the places do trials, some are subsidized others are free. But the standard fees for Krav are $80 a month, they do Monday, Wednesday and i think Saturday in Hammersley (not sure i dont go on weekends ahha) the trial i think is $40 for 4 lessons or something like that.

              At $36 p/w I might check them out also and possibly jump ship

                    I've trained Muay Thai privately and in group classes of ZDK with Craig Webster who is 5 or 6 Dan ZDK up in Kinross, I've trained Muay Thai at Total Martial Arts Malaga (Steve Glew took pretty much all the Muay Thai classes there), took a few years break and now I'm at a local place (WAIMA) but looking to move once I can justify paying their hefty joining fee and 3 month cancellation clause. I recommend Total Martial Arts as Justin Boylan is the highest rank in WA and works alongside Steve Glew. I've trained with people who also went to Spear and didn't hear any complaints.

                      I heard the waima is pretty good. I don't think there is a 3 month cancellation clause with spear dojo. Malaga is a little further then I wanted to travel due to work commitments.
                      Spear is only 15 min drive which is good.

                      I just want to make sure that spear dojo is a decent place and not some kid on place ie a mcdojo as they call it.


                      How did you find zen do kai?

                      I had a look at Krav Maga not sure if it's my thing or not.
