Finally got round to following up with Luke's/Raw Combats use of the Rising Sun Logo:
I brought this to the attention of the Australian Army Brand Management team, and this constitutes illegal and unauthorized use of the logo.
They are very protective of the Rising Sun Logo, and what it stands for, and as a blanket rule will not use it to endorse any
If you do seeing it being used, you can contact the Army brand manager directly on this page under 'Service Logos/ Badges/ Flags/ Ensign'
Well he was useing the rising sun alot. They must have sent him something telling him to take it down. I saw he's went back and changed the titles to alot of his youtube vids. From "speacil forces knife fighting" to various other titles such as " street fighting" and "dirty fighting". Further proving in spite of his silence and calling people on this forum "keyboard warriors" he does give in to the pressure.

I've got a new profile pic for him.....it's a parody and Fair Use applies....
It's still on a lot of his videos.

To which Luke (not to be out done in this bullshitting contest) replied.
"thank you for reaching out brother. I was invited to Egypt last year with some contracted work also. Hopefully our paths do cross soon :-)"
Interesting how he no longer uses "Sugiyama-Holloway" as his surname; wonder if he split from his wife
While I am no expert, master, or nor even studied tatical training in any form. However, I have watched his videos and read his interview on the Kombatives Corner website. It left me wondering how he can in fact claim to be a teacher in anyway.
The reasons I say this is due to
1. How can one who says that he has studied the Arts all his life bash the ancients and the philosphies by saying they meaningless to read or study. Such books include Bushido, Henji, Geiiji, Hagakure, The Book of Five Rings, and Sun Tzu; the base for most Martial Artists. According to Master Tanaka Fumon, these books are needed to understand the basics of the arts and the history of the evolution of man's mind. Without proper mindset and the history of such things. His students could mindlessly beat the hell out of the average joe and potentially mame or worse, kill them due to lack of proper reasoning or control.
2. While, his videos are some what intuitive. In my opinion they lack sense or reason. I say this because videos and instruction are end game. Now, most teachers who run a class or seminar usually outline the class before beginning. I see none of this in his videos.
3. Why the censorship? It isn't like he's He-Man with the power of the universe at his beck and call. Sorry, Mr. Holloway but it seems to be self-destructive and creates issues among the general populas.
4. Finally, I have scoured over many websites and the like. Yet, I don't see or have hear of LH's himself or group going to internationally sponsored events to demostrate his skills. I would like to see him action with actual SF or Swat Operators. Test his skills on the best the world have to offer.
5. If Mr. Holloway is that good. Then why the need for censorship? What he has done and is doing is the same as others in a different costume.
Now, that I spoke my mind. Rock Ape, how do we e-mail each other. I tried the suggestions posted but to no avail. Please advise sir. Thank you.
