Are you going to be teaching the original Jiu Jitsu or the Brazilian kind? What about Judo? Do you know any Boxing, or wrestling?

I, for one, like it! I just wish it were in New Hampshire... and maybe yellow with a black background.

I'm starting out with BJJ and I'll branch off into MMA if anyone shows interest. I'm going to be running it out of a CrossFit school, so I will probably be attracting the athletes to start off.

It sounds like I'm a bit late, but I would have kept "anarchy" out of the title, and instead inserted a non-graffiti style circle A into the logo somewhere. But I respect the nerve you have to go all out.

I've just started to get back into the Martial Arts. Just started working on refining my kicking techniques.

The name is growing on me. 

I know at least some martial arts have versions that are restricted to military/police.  Does your martial art have that?  If you trained trusted anarchists a restricted form, you would be doing some agorism there.

I don't think there are any restricted forms, I've never heard of any...

I believe that is because most schools simply don't offer LEO/military type of tactics.  Most martial arts schools are more about self-discipline, fitness, and sport. 

Some things offered only in the military/LEO krav maga classes:
Weapon Retention (in the holster, out of the holster, standing and on the ground)
Defenses Against Long-Gun Threats
Long-Gun Retention
Utilizing an Impact Weapon for Defensive Purposes and Striking
Ground Fighting and Tactics for Law Enforcement Application
Arrest and Control Tactics
Searching and Hancuffing
Hostage Situations
Special Operations (ie. Suicide/Homicide Bomber)

Weapon retention and weapon defense seem like pretty darn good things to offer civilians to me.  Yet for some reason, they don't allow it.  Maybe it can be found in other martial arts without an issue, but some forms certainly do restrict things.

There are at least 3 Krav Maga schools where I live.

Seems very common for it to be.  I didn't make that stuff up.

I respect your choices and wish you the best of luck. Personally though, if you have anarchy in the title, you better have a clean, organized, well presentable business front.

I was a graphic design major so you have to put yourself into what people think when they see something. Sadly, anarchy is seen as destructive. Seen the commercial for AXE Anarchy? It shows a city being ripped apart by all kinds of disasters. If Apple stores were called Anarchy stores, would people think chaos/unlawful/unruly walking into them?

If people see a very nice, clean business, they'll probably think anarchy was just to draw attention, not teach fighting techniques for being in a riot.

I hate it but the word anarchy has a negative connotation attached to it. Take the positives from it and expand on those as much as possible, as simply as possible.

- self control
- personal responsibility
- only being aggressive towards somebody when they show aggression towards you
These are anarchist thoughts that go great with martial arts.

Anyway, you got balls doing this and I wish you the very best of luck.

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back.

You take the blue pill- the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.

You take the red pill- you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
