Look out for schools that have long term (1yr+ ) contracts for new students. Look out for unnecessary showmanship. If the place and people don't feel right to you, leave it alone. Look out for teachers who beat people up and degradate them for no real reason. Word of mouth is somewhat a good reference. Look for combination arts or very solid systems. There're a lot more things that you can be on the look out for but these hit my head first. If you know yourself then you'll know what you want and need.
