Nice review! A round of dojo storming may be in order...

We should write up a short summary and see what is involved in having it placed in the Stillwater Newspress and/or the Daily O'Collegian. Both are small papers and welcome local stories. It is the best way to get the word out to the community.

In addition if you try to google Mr. Scott’s linage of instructors you will not get any hits on Steven Ryzak, or Yoshio Humanoto, and no hits that obviously relate to MA for John Stanford, or JC Teasley.

I agree. If Rickson gracie did it, then it MUST be right! WWRD?

does anyone honestly lay claim to “traditional judo”?

One might try if they knew that a quick call to the USJA could clear up any questions about rank. In addition, if he had a Brown in Oklahoma my old Sensei would have known it. The first time I met him, he tried to come to judo to inquire about my Sensei’s pressure point techniques. And as you all know, Judo got teh deadly pressure points down!

You may have to give us a little time on the punch line.

If anyone found that article dry and vague as to how I know he is a poor martial artistst, check out the very first link in the article Storming the Fortress (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=15653&highlight=%22storming+fortress%22) written just a few hours after my first encounter with Coda Scott.

If this yahoo got out of high school in 2004, Damm, I just did the math!!!!! Another 20 year old master!!!!

What the "f" am I doing wrong?

I'm 47 freaking years old, 1st degree Black Belt for 6 years. (Because I won't promote myself!). I've been doing martial arts for almost 33 years. Teaching for at least 12 years.

Where have I gone wrong? Please fellas help me out!

Whitey, please!

Now this is one of the things this site is about, busting these fuckers. Mr "ironman" here hoever just seems to be a bit delusional, rather than a shrewd businessman in a gi. No excuse however, that guy shouldn't teach.

Well, Boeker is listed as a BJJ brown belt under C. Machado on BBJ.org. We all know that BJJ.org may be dated so he may have received his BB by now (your link reads 10/17).

If we take a leap and assume that Porter was "exposed" his instructor's instructor's over the course of 4 years we can see where he may have played with -

Philippine Weapons include the Esrima, Shuk Sword, - GM Remy Presas

Downfighting and Submission Fighting. - Carlos Machado

however, this is A (Machado/Presas) -> B (Boeker) -> C (Porter) -> D (Scott)........who the **** taught Scott how to use the god damn "rope dart", "okinawan kenpo", and how the hell do you spar full contact with fucking kamas.....bullshit.

Good article, keep fighting the good fight Dai. I look forward to your follow-ups.

The way I justified it to myself and Dai is this:

If Colt put out a revolver that misfired 75% of the time, and even kicked back and injured the shooter even 1% of the time, there'd be an immediate recall and they'd get HELL for it. Martial arts should be held to the same standard!

Also, by Dai's request, here are a couple episodes I had with Coda:

Episode 1: The Horse-punching Menace

So, I'm in the combatives room on an off day, just going over some jiu-jitsu basics with a student, when in marches Coda Scott, who, at the time, had niether a class-time nor a handful of students to corrupt. He promptly marched up to me, arms militarily stiff at his sides, and said, in a very loud and abrupt manner, "SIR, MY NAME IS CODA SCOTT, AND I'D LIKE TO KNOW IF I COULD PRACTICE IN THIS ROOM RIGHT NOW!"
...I looked up at him in shock... "uh...sure?"
"THANK YOU SIR *bow*"
I continued doing what I was doing, occasionally looking up to see them practicing poor front sweeps and whatnot, and at one point saw them DEEEEEP into a horse stance, practing a standard reverse punch.
Then, I tuned in on Coda's voice... "...and this is the deadliest punch in Karate. This punch can kill a man, and it only takes one shot to the chest to kill him, no matter how big he is!"
I sat in amazement, completely forgetting whatever it was I was doing...because honestly, why was I training in all this boxing, kickboxing, jiu-jitsu nonsense anyway, when really, all I needed was the reverse punch from horse stance! Eureka!!!

Episode 2: Attack of the Paper Wads

Another similar afternoon, I walk in to find what appears to be the "True Power World Combat Team" engaged in some sword practice. Bokken at the ready, I expect them to go through a sword kata or something...instead, Coda squares up across the mat from them, and starts pitching paper-wads at them, as his students bat at them like Dai playing T-ball. I had to turn around and leave to avoid laughing aloud and possibly incurring the wrath of TRUE power.

tl; read a couple of times though... PRICELESS!!!

Dai, you are my hero for at least the rest of the month. If I could +rep you... wait a second. I can! Woot Zoints!

edro, why didn't you just walk over and let the guy actually reverse punch you in the chest? Seems like an easy enough solution to that bullshit.

Could someone please get this guy on tape? While he's full of ****, he's also hilarious, albeit at his own expense...
