I don't even know where to begin! I guess I started out more curious about the Muay Thai program than the Jiu Jitsu, but they convinced me to try both. I was disappointed to find out that even thought they tout "Bang Muay Thai", Duane "Bang" Ludwig lives in California and is never even at their gym, and he only instructed the current "head" MT instructor, who is just a p***k with self-esteem issues, for a very short time. I never got to meet Bang and found out that when he does come, I would have to pay huge additional fees to attend his one-time seminar! What kind of crap is that? Why am I paying monthly for "Bang" Muay Thai when I am obviously not getting it? And that's just the whole way of this gym. Smoke and mirrors.
I did jiu jitsu under their brown belt, Ryan Walden, for the most part. I once heard him describe himself as patient, but I realized quickly that his patince is paper thin. I wanted to do mma because I wanted to feel confident and to learn the truth about where my lines could be drawn. I don't feel like I can ever learn that under this guy, now that I see what he's like. He's the kind of spoiled punk that thinks he's entitled to respect even if he's disrespectful, entitled to your money even if he doesn't do his job, and entitled to leadership even though he's never learned first how to follow. He pays no attention to what's going on in his classes once he tells us what to do. I've even seen him texting or fbing while we're in our one hour class. And I've seen him chicken out of rolling with some of the bigger purple belts and once, a guest brown belt, which is not cool since BJJ is supposed to make up for size. He acts like he's too good when the truth seems to be more that he's too lazy and afraid to lose. He's just a pigeon-toed geek with dumb a*s tattoos and a rich mommy. I get the feelinging his nasty girlfriend cheats on him, too. I found out his family has a history of crime- the Smalldones were their names. It's kind of wierd that the State Patrol is involved with him. Seems like something sketchy could be going on there for sure.
After a few months of witnessing this stuff I wanted out. I told them I felt like I was getting ripped off in the MT program entirely and that I would like a full refund for that, and since I hadn't been to any bjj classes in several weeks I wanted my last payment back that they had just taken. They completely refused. Ryan said I was ungrateful and didn't deserve to have ever walked into RFLX! Ha! I threatened to write reviews on google and he said to go ahead. So here I am, writing every kind of negative review I can. He doesn't seem to realize how easy it is to see through his bullshit.
