Sunbelt martial arts center in Mandarin, Jacksonville, Florida horrible horrible terrible mcdojo, the fat guy ruined it!

Their business model is to sign you to long term contracts and then intentionally try to injure you so you can't come in and train. Then, even if you are hurt, they keep billing you and drain your bank account dry!

A McDojo is a school that teaches a watered-down and impractical form of martial arts in the name of making money. They place the importance of profit well ahead of teaching anything realistic or credible in terms of self-defense, and are dangerous is the aspect that they send unprepared & often over confident students into a world thinking they can fight when in actuality they have no real fighting skills. Often McDojos teach a lot of bullshido, which is a term used to define deception, fraud, and lies in terms of martial arts.

This place is a total McDojo! Can you say belt factory? This place is the Kmart of martial arts schools in the Jacksonville area!!

Stay away!! They're just interested in directly accessing your bank accounts and credit cards! The martial arts instruction totally sucks here, so not worth the $150/month!

The owner is a crazy Iranian with a big fat belly, he looks like he has 75 lbs of fat stuck to the front of his stomach! Totally hilarious, he literally looks 9 months pregnant.

And he has the worst customer service skills ever! His personality totally sucks, typical Arab male - domineering and very overbearing.

Stay away.... far far away!!

Please dont let this man be alone with you little girls. He will touch them and I am sure would do more if he thinks he can get away with it.

This is bad place! They make you sign long contracts and when your 7 year old is forced to spar with other older bigger kids and gets injured and no longer wants to go back, they keep taking that $ out of your bank account anyway............. their new location is at 10501 San Jose Boulevard, Jacksonville, FL 32257

I took my kid there for a while. Not the best quality program in the area. Repetitive and disorganized.
