    I am trying to find information about 2 JKD Concepts instructors/schools in South Florida, specifically, Mr. Dwight Woods of Unified Martial Arts Academy in Miami and Mr. Neil Cauliffe of American Dragon Martial Arts in Coral Springs.

    From what I have learned thus far, both have been students of Mr. Dan Inosanto. Mr. Woods has more exposure on the internet with youtube.com but other than what is on their respective websites, there is not too much out there.

    Anyone have any personal experience with either instructor?

    Would anyone be able to provide any insight into the experience of the instructors and pros and cons of either?

    Dwight is a nice guy. His school is very well organized and students are nice.

    There is also Courtney White

    He is also a nice guy and his students are nice as well.

    I never met Neil so I can not comment on him.

    Much appreciated.

    I am actually closer to Coral Springs so I am going to check out Neil Cauliffe's school.

    I hope it can be a good fit.

    Took a drive to Sifu Woods school in Kendall. Talked with one of the Assistant instructors. He was very friendly and informative. I am going to set up an introductory lesson and see what I think. It is further away than the one in Coral Springs, but I want to give each school a chance and see which will be the best for my schedule and where I feel most comfortable.

    Decided on Sifu Cauliffe's school in Coral Springs.

    I felt they offered the best set up for me with their schedule, program and their proximity allows me to train more often without putting myself into the poorhouse given the shorter drive.

    I liked what I saw and heard so I am excited to start in this new training.

    I also enjoyed visiting Sifu Woods school but with the distance and the class times, it would have been difficult to make the classes I wanted and the distance with gas and tolls would have made things too tight financially.

    I am comfortable and excited with my decision and I feel Coral Springs is a good fit.

    I am a newb so I will let you know how I progress...

    Before you sign on the dotted line, you might want to try World Class Martial Arts Academy located in Margate, FL. See website: www.wcmaacademy.com. Our program is similar to Neil Cauliffe but our prices are better and our program is more extensive and encompassing.

    Sifu,

    I appreciate your information, but I have in fact, joined Sifu Cauliffe's school. So far everything is to my liking and I am enjoying the instruction.

    Thank you again.

    Hard to believe that WCMAA has a more extensive and encompassing program since I taught all their instructors.

    American Dragon Martial Arts is the ONLY certified program by Sifu Dan Inosanto in Broward County. Don't be fooled by lower prices.
