    i have trained at john higos gym for a long time....he is a very good MMA coach and his kickboxing background is there for all to see.

    John knows his shit, he has great coachs at leeds cage helping him with the running of the gym on a day to day basis.
    Jon and Neil are awsome grapple/sub coachs !!

    I for one am glad that there are people out there like John and the lads at leeds cage trying to teach the proper way and also doing it safe.

    Why do people keep saying how good John Higo is when no-one has questioned him at all?

    What grappling experience is necessary for someone to be qualified to teach MMA under WAKO?

    The tragus is a good choice for a peircing but you have to choose yourself. You either wnat it or you dont... I have mine done and it looks cool. If you want it done get it done you wont regret it. As for the tattoo I have no preference x 0_0 x

    True enough.The reason I ask is that expereince of training with John would be a good basis for judging his ability to coach. Be it Kickboxing, MMA, whatever. Best of luck with your training.

    For that matter, what level of grappling expereince is required for anyone to teach MMA? If WAKO have any level isnt that an improvement? Maybe we should consult the UK MMA governing body......;-)

    I guess it is up to the person looking for coaching to decide, but yes, the same questions can be applied to any MMA coach (or team of coaches).

    I think it's a bit different when they are actually giving people a title/qualification (whatever you want to call it) of "MMA instructor". Surely an organisation would want to have high level instructors only? If they give out the title to anyone with a dan grade in any art, that is a bit dodgy and probably just money making don't you reckon?

    It's just a question anyway, should be pretty easy to answer.

    John and Lisa are both good friends. As far as I can see, the main idea is to provide a route for kickboxing clubs to get involved in MMA. I don't really see what the big deal is or why people are getting so upset about it. Relax - nobody's trying to take over MMA or tell you what to do! Plenty of room in here for all of us...
