Really Excellent professional school – Great high quality school. Very attractive school and very clean. Great instruction. Really nice group of students and skilled martial artists. I liked that they let me train for 2 weeks for free to try it and see
Real life experience – I have been a student of Bushido Knights for several months. I have found Sensei Knapton to be a true teacher, one who understands that the expectations of the students are different. Some people want to learn how to kick butt, others just want a good workout, and everywhere in between. This is a real life style of Martial Arts. Not for points, not for showing off, but a commen sense approach to what may happen in the real world. Its the real deal, and Sensei Knapton makes if fun.
A top quality Dojo – This is an excellent school. The instruction is very high quality. The instructors are very skilled Black Belts who are able to clearly explain the techniques they are teaching. I really liked that the classes focus on reality based scenarios and real fighting skills rather than just doing Kata, line drills and all the other things you normally see at sport schools and kids schools. I also liked the fact that people have to go through an admissions process to be accepted as students at the school. I don't know of any other schools in the area that has admissions requirements.
Bushido Knights are a Really Excellent School – I actually trained at the Bushido Knights for around 3 years.
I hope to go back sometime soon.
I trained in traditional Shotokan for about 4 years and
I have also trained in a variety of other systems.
Previous to training here I took a look at most of the other local
schools. (in fact the Bushido Knights Sensei told me to
go look at all the other schools on my list FIRST)
The Bushido Knights are a great school with excellent instruction. I really
liked the other students there and was impressed with the high quality
of the skills they had. (You can tell A LOT about the quality of a school
by looking at the students)
I was surprised to see the few poor reviews below -but I suspect they were
all written by the same person. (They all have the same writing style, the
same poor grammar/spelling, similar entry dates and give the same rating).
Someone whom I suspect never actually went in to the school. Welcome to
the internet. LOL
But regardless, here is my actual experience.
"Pressured sales". Not true. They let me go to classes for 2 weeks (for
free) BEFORE I joined. Actually you HAVE to go to a bunch of free classes
before they offer you the CHANCE to sign up. The only pressure was
I really wanted to qualify to be a student.
"Not a Black Belt" Not true. The Sensei is a tremendously skilled Black
Belt with decades of experience. His Certifications are on display but
never mind that - go and watch him or better yet take a class there and
see for yourself.
"Not nice" Also not true. I liked the Sensei a lot. He is very professional
and a class act. Again go in and SEE FOR YOURSELF.
"Not teaching kids means it is a 'cheap' Art" That is just an ODD statement.
I don't want to train with 8-year-old kids. Kids classes can be taught by
a 14-year-old black belt. It takes a true Master to teach the real thing to
Bottom line: Great Dojo. Great teacher. Great Style.
GO SEE FOR YOURSELF...
He is not Black Belt – This teacher has so many black belts and Hight ranks...including Jiu-Jitsu.
If you know Martial arts little bit, nobody belive it.
This guy is con Master. He doesn`t have any black belt at all.
The Teacher is not nice. – The teacher is very bad guy. He love to talk S#$ a lot.
He asked me date a lot however I said NO.
I try stop payment them asked me full year payment.
Joke Dojo – They teach cheap martial arts (they can teach only adult because to teach child is difficult). they teach something strange from many different martial arts -teacher could not stick same style for over 1 year. this is not the usual sport or kids arts you find. This is a con school.
Don't waste your time here.
Bushido Knights the best school in south florida – They teach real martial arts (they are one of the few schools that only offer adult classes). they teach skills from many different martial arts -you would have to go to at least 4 different schools to learn all the skills taught here. this is not the usual sport or kids arts you find. they have a great record of their students successfully defending thmselves. They are very selective about who they will train, (you train for 2 weeks for free while you are in the admissions process). Some schools were pushy about selling, the bushido knights are the opposite, they won't LET you sign up -until you are offered admission. They teach you real skills right away and you get to learn from the chief instructor who is a outstanding martial artist and a great teacher. If you can get in, this is definately the place to train.
