Roger Boggs, 5th degree deadly black belt test and triangle can openers
So, this video has been circulating on Facebook these last few days labeled 5th degree black belt test. The video is hilarious. I had to satisfy my morbid curiosity and dig deeper.
This video was posted on Bullshido, and it seems to be the work of the same group.
Both videos provide no context, but I figured out that the logo on their shirts is the shield of Captain America. It led me to this blog, which in turn led me to their site.
They also offer Judo classes, of the Kodokan judo kind :D
Sparring is not required until brown belt, and is only done with special equipment bought at the McDojo.
Roger (sensei teacher :D) Boggs has these vague rank claims on the site:
Then, there is the video of Mr. Boggs actually instructing a grappling class. After the chants of "You rock", he demonstrates a highly questionable technique and goes on to drilling. Bonus points for discussing the application of the technique in MMA.
Sensei (teacher) Boggs is our Chief Instructor and currently holds the rank of 5th Dan (5th degree Black Belt). He also has earned Black Belts in Judo and Jujitsu.
In 1995 he joined Goshin Karate & Judo Academy. In December of 2000 he was awarded his first degree black belt by Mike & Cathy Anderson, the founders of the Goshin Karate & Judo Academy.Sensei Boggs charts the path of the dojo for the future. He sets the curriculum for all classes, determines belt promotions and leads the adult and children’s classes. He has a vast wealth of knowledge and is the example of skill that we all aspire to obtain. His commitment to our dojo by demonstrating the benefits of the right attitude.
He began training in the Martial Arts in the 1970’s (Judo, Wrestling, and Taekwondo) in Cedar Rapids Iowa, before relocating to Scottsdale Arizona in 1986.
His passion for all things “martial arts” powers his daily training ethic and he continues to grow as a martial artist through guidance from many sources in the Judo, Jujitsu, and Karate community.
There is a reference to MMA and BJJ classes in the video description.
This footage was shot at Chris Pollman Karate Academy in Weatherford, OK. Located at 1805 E Main St reet. Available Martial Art styles: Brazilian Jujitsu, Goju Ryu, Karate, Kick Boxing & Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
So, I started writing this as a LOL krotty YMAS post, but as I dug deeper I'm thinking that maybe this warrants a MABS investigation.
