Thanks for replying man, yeah I think I am going to change gyms. I'm off with a slight injury I've had for a while at the moment but I suppose it gives me time to make up my mind.

Yeah I'm currently studying for a degree and then I'll be joining the Army for a few years. I've always wanted to join the Army or the Police force but the Police force here don't recruit much so you have to be an outstanding applicant to stand a chance. If I go to the Army as an officer and serve for a minimum term of 3 years (might do more) the Police would love me for my experience and the load of management and leadership qualifications you get in training.

Yea dude, its time to move on.

I love kickboxing myself, but if you aren't being challenged its time to move. I love my gym because we have and constantly get guys who compete on local circuits. In kickboxing you never reach a conclusion, it and itself is a constant evolution and when it ceases to it becomes stagnant.

Well each to their own I guess, I know some people who love it too. I just don't enjoy it much.

My gym is pretty much all beginners, only one has had any amateur fights, 4 did a grapple & strike tournament and that's it.

if he has taken you as far as he can and you know it, then its time to move on. sticking around would be a waste of money and time.

doesn't your gym have beginners/intermediate/advanced classes?

That's usually the sign of a good gym IMO.
