you only have to look in the yellow pages, local paper or google to see there are martial art schools everywhere covering all styles. Some have been around for a long time others are new.

An older friend and i were chatting on the weekend, he dabbled in Karate in the old days when there was really only Karate, Judo or Tae Kwon Do to choose from. He was saying in those days you only had a few schools to choose from and they were part of the same group, followed a set cirriculum and everyone came out the same, whether you learnt in 1970 or 1980. He said the schools had lineage. Now the range is wider and seem to be less structured or the newer schools seem to preach/teach their own brand of a particular style.

So how do you the student know if your instructor really has to goods, skills, knowledge etc to really take your money and teach you?

Does it matter so long as you think you're getting what you want, or should there be some standard and some way for the student to know the lineage of the school and the style they are learning.

Nah, different people fight with completley different styles and have success.

Traditionalists would look at how people like domanic cruz and anderson silva fight, and say their technique is wrong and their not qualified to teach.

My opinion,.. make sure the instructor you choose has competed with sucess in the style he is teaching.
