There is a new kenpo karate school in York that also teaches the Israeli self defense system called 'Haganah' aka 'FIGHT'. They also offer an MMA class on M,W,F from 8:30 to 9:45. Mon is standup, Wed is grappling, Fri is both. They offer good standup instruction but their ground instruction is basic BJJ (I should know because I've been helping teach the grappling class and I'm a mid-level white belt in BJJ who trains mostly gi and am definitely NOT an MMA fighter!) Seriously though, this is a good school with a really nice owner, Sibora Chan. He's a life-long martial artist and it's great to have another MA/MMA school in York. We need it! What I would love to happen is for a group of dedicated beginning to intermediate students train there consistently in a spirit of everyone helping everyone else learn as much as they can. Lord knows I'm limited in what I can offer but I'm honest about that. It would be cool, too, if more experienced grapplers and MMA fighters in the area would be willing to stop by the classes occasionally to share their knowledge and help the group progress. I know a handful of really good grapplers in York and, while some of them have scheduling conflicts with Mr. Chan's classes due to their own training and teaching committments, I'm sure they will do what they can to help out a new group of guys who are eager to learn all they can. I love the "no ego" type MA school, and this is definitely one of them. Hope to see you all at an upcoming class (yes, that's a plea for help!
