Any good martial arts centers in FFX?

Any real martial arts, (doesn't matter the style) in NOVA? Not those bullshit Krav Maga places that advertise all over the place either.

What do you define as a real martial art? Let's start from here and then I'll recommend a school.

Try Billy Joe Blythe's dojo in Dumfries. They teach a great technique for stomping on crazy people.

There's a shitload of martial arts centers around. The question is...do you want a place that will teach it to you, make you learn it, and it will take 5 years or so to get a black belt or do you want a center that pushes you through and you can get a black belt in about 2 years, but you won't be any good?

You can get a blackbelt quickly or correctly and they aren't the same thing.

As far as self-defense goes, I wouldn't label Krav Maga as a bullshit martial art.

What kind? Do you want to do karate? Brazilian jiu jitsu? Just stay in shape?

No, Krav Maga is really good, but a lot of the places that advertise are just bullshitters that can't teach worth a damn and remind me of that guy off Napolean Dynamite.

What I'm really interested in is Silat.

I don't know the reputation of this place but it looks to be the only place that teaches Silat in the area: http://www.kungfu-silat.com/
