    Left the McDojo, What to do Next? (Northern CA) By Martialartsfan14780 - 01-13-2013 10:48 PM


    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and really like it so far. Here is my dilemma. Maybe you can help?

    After completing roughly half of the curriculum at a Northern California martial arts school, I left over serious ethical issues going on. Although my instructor was wonderful, his boss began hiring new instructors who should never have been in front of kids, period. At one point I was offered an instructor position as well if I paid the boss $15,000. I declined.

    Anyway, I'm not sure what to do at this point. I adored my original instructor and the group of fellow students I trained with. It was wonderful to celebrate everyone's triumphs big and small. People have said, well if you cared about your original instructor, you should have stayed. Maybe that was right? Idk at this point. At the time, it seemed like staying would only condone seriously problematic behavior by the new hires.

    So what to do now? Any advice would be great. I've reflected long on this, prayed about it, and visited several possible new schools. And I still don't know what to do. I also don't know if it is worth trying to help my original teacher (who was without blame).

    Thank you for any advice
