    But who were his opponents he lost to?

    I aggree a great fighter does not always make a great coach, and a great coach is not always a good fighter. However, i bet ALL the great coaches have a detailed knowledge of the game they teach. You wont find many good coaches with crap technique
    For great training in Sydney, Australia go to www.bondidojo.com.au for excellent, BJJ, MMA and Muay Thai

    Hi Leeroy,

    It is the same Gary. I was probably one of the lads you used to role with from Lancaster/Morecambe. I came down a few times to the Blackpool club (Kickers?) when it was open with the some of the lads from the Uni Club and Morecambe MMA. Would have been three or four years ago now.

    McDonalds look like the real thing but leave you feeling hungry and are full of crap.
    If you want a good burger, go to FUDRUCKERS in Texas! Get a 1lb burger for 3! Pure meat baby!!!

    Just like McDojos, proof is in the lastability. Students will reach a platue real quick and get bored, move on or hopefully find somewhere better.
    No need to 'name and shame' as whos to judge why someone goes to a club?
    If you dont like it, dont go.

    The whole teacher/fighter thing is a dead end topic.
    I may be wrong, but Im not aware of Alexis or Paul having a pro MMA record? Not on the almighty sherdog anyway! BUT, can yo still learn from them? ..

    Answer is obvious to anyone whos been to London Shoot...

    Dont get me wrong, I was making a point that they are not active pro MMA fighters but are both 1st class/world class instructors! My first MMA class was at LS!

    My point is to those who are saying that 'as a pro fighter' they wouldnt go to a class where the instructor wasnt a pro fighter...

    Still a big difference between being able to fight and being able to teach.
    Teaching is alot harder to do well as far as Im concerned.

    i UNDERSTAND AND I WAS JUST SAYING I ONLY LIKE BEING COACHED BY A PERSON WHO HAS FOUGHT THEM SELVES, NO POINT HAVING SOMEONE IN YOUR CORNER SAYING YA NEED TO DO THIS YA NEED TO DO THAT WHEN THEY DON T KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO DO THIS AND THAT IN A LIVE FIGHT.

    Beyond the coaches record, it's also worth looking at what fighters they have produced.

    I was phoned up at the gym the other day and asked about teaching of MMA. The guy asked what belt I was in BJJ when I told him he just hung up :-( lol
