    As someone that is looking into finding a martial arts school I like at the moment, I'd love to know what schools are carry friendly to OC and CC...

    What schools are known to be friendly or unfriendly?

    I would hope most are friendly.

    Team Ruthless in Manassas is COMPLETELY OK with OC and CC.
    They hold regular Krav Maga, Knife, BJJ, and Gun classes and partner with several national and international Martial Arts associations.

    They also are a great power lifting and cross-fit type gym. For the ladies so inclined, they have a bi-weekly pole dancing class

    It's also important where in VA.

    Neil Ehrlich at American Karate Institute in Alexandria is also an NRA instructor.

    I used to study hapkido in Alexandria (Little River Turnpike, across from Jerry's Ford) but can't find a listing for Master Um now. When he asked why I wanted to learn hapkido, I told him if I were attacked, I'd like to be able to drop the attacker and keep him down long enough to draw my gun and my cell phone (before I started OC). Master Um was cool with that ... but I never tried carrying there.

    Yea, for me...I am looking for a school I like in the va beach/norfolk area... But it be nice to know which are friendly and not in other areas. I am sure I am not the only one that would find the info useful.

    There is a Krav Maga studio in Va Beach. Try doing a goggle search for it. Thats how I found this place.



    Craig Smith Kick boxing (Joe Lewis fighting system) in Va Beach is friendly. I OC there all the time. He also is a fellow OC and CC patron.
