I ran across these reviews when I started training at a school similar to Larry's in town. I decided to see what, if anything, Rice was up to these days as one of his students and myself shared less than polite words which eventually resulted in me making judgments and assertions about Larry that may not have been accurate.

After heads were able to cool, Larry allowed me back in his home, where he trains his students. I apologized, and Larry even dressed formally for the occasion. We went our separate ways. As to Larry's character, I have no reason to believe he would lay hands on any student that wasn't a danger to the other classmates or his family.

Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) are commonly practiced in local parks, basements, community centers, backyards....anywhere that is available for cheap to free. The instructors don't often make much money, and tend to teach for the love of the art. This also goes back to the adage, "Train how you fight, fight how you train." If you walk around in jeans and sandals, what good will training with fancy gear on cushioned mats do you when shit hits the fan and you have to use your training to defend yourself?

Long story short, Larry has a ton of experience in FMA and Wing Chun and does not appear to go out of his way to intimidate anyone.

I absolutely love this class. When attending Mountian Martial Arts Academy I was one of his younger students being in my preteen years. Sifu Larry Rice was an amazing teacher and taught each technique step by step.

Sifu Larry Rice is a phenomenal teacher and a true gentleman. I have been attending classes at the Academy for five years and I love every minute. Sifu Rice has over 35 years of experience in martial arts and continues to train under a handful of the world's best instructors. He keeps the material alive and practical and encourages his students to discover what works for them as individuals. He is always respectful to newcomers regardless of their prior experience, and works hard to make his classes productive for everyone in attendance.
