"9th degree blackbelt in Ninjutsu
9th degree blackbelt in Taijutsu"........ wtf?
I take it this simply means 9th dan in BUjinkan Budo Taijutsu. The misleading part of this is separating the two. I'm almost surprised not to see them list all 9 schools with 9th dan beside them.

Looks like typical RBSD.
So, are the Elrods certified trainers in this system? Why the title "Travel Marshal"? I find no reference to this being the title conferred upon completion of training. Researching the WBB site, the only references I can find about "Travel Marshals" are on two of the bios of WBB members.

Are they certified to teach this system? Are they actually employed by American Airlines? Do they have any sort of official status with the airline, because everyone I've talked to with TSA & the Air Marshals haven't even heard of this program.
Yeah, that one is kind of a blatant "Duh".
