Al hikmah also has a place on coffee street, purple building on KFC side next to the Chinese restaurant.

Also there was a purple dragon located opposite from Al-hikmah.

Purple Dragaon fighting style: ... Don jitsu ryu... named after Don Jacobs :|

Nuff said.

That whole school is a self glorification, black power venture by "Professor" Don Jacobs.

Purple dragon has good instructors, rigorous training, practical instruction. I left because
1) I pay a monthly fee, I hate all the raffle and donation they were asking for. I don't think donating my time to the club = charity work/ community service.
2) I think the glorification of "The Professor" stupid and childlike in everything they do. Sorry, I come to learn self defense, not pay homage to Don Jacobs
3) I found their tournament judges too biased. If you doing well and trying to be part of the "community", there was a clear bias towards you in the ring. Damnit, I kick off a man's headgear, and two judges say they did not see the point, one say point to me, and one say no point. Was too consistent with guys going up against "Favorites". Winning at sparing is for who could kick/ cuff harder and faster, not who much up to the sensei etc.


If you could deal with all of the political nonsense and pressure to "contribute" or actually like the club community kinda thing, you will reach far in there and probably become a great fighter.

Al Hikmah on Coffee street, really good instructor, the zen name is davanand, you won't be disappointed. Purple Dragon is overrated and the instructors do not teach how to be civility and humility, which are somethings i think you'll want your child to learn.

crossdrilled, Well Sai...You captured all the points. The one that pissed me off the most was the "glorification of firetruck don jacob" - If you meet the man in the streets in your normal clothers you hadda recognise him....and if you dont - discipline in yuh mudda kant in the dojo - too me thats a pack ah sheit - thats why i left.

Again - Well Said Crossdrilled

Choose a martial arts school carefully. There are alot of frauds out there, and some people are not trained to teach children, or worse handle in-dojo- emergencies if they do arise.

Shop around, check out a few schools, sit in on a few classes with your son. If they instructor 'denies' access to observation, you definatly dont want that school.

Inquire, about the cost of gradings, uniforms, additional 'registration' fees, international fees etc, because like anything else dojos charge lots of hidden extra costs.

Try not to get an instructor that shouts/bawls at your kid, especially if he's young. I had a karate instructor when I was younger who was a mc , and in retrospect the training was brutal, abusive and overkill.

Always ask for qualifications. ANYONE who claims to be 9th/10th dan in Trinidad is someone that created their own style. Would you drive a car that I manufactured and started selling in tnt? I wouldn't.

Fighting is not equal to Martial Arts , I dont care what some people tell you.It's a state of mind, and there are alot of places that'll teach you to kick and punch effectively but very little that'll teach you it's not ok to fight.

co-sign. you'll have a range of styles/options to choose from: kickboxing, tai-chi, aikido and kung-fu. believe they constructed a kickboxing ring as well a couple years back.
