Yeah, I would not be down with that either.
Yeah it was an odd atmosphere that was set in general... I'm definitely seeing it's not all about just the style you pick.
That's too bad, Simon. Having walked into a few different places over the years, MA classes vary quite a bit and take on the personality of the instructor. Hopefully the next class will give you a better idea of what the school is really like.
Very true, the instructor definitely sets the tone huh... the place did tick some other 'practical' boxes though (it's quite cheap to train, also not as far location-wise as other places I have in mind).
