“Hide nothing and the fools will search everywhere…”
Old Ninja Saying
As most of you know, our policy is not to respond to these trolls. All they want is attention, they have even admitted that their sole purpose in trashing others is to get people to come to their Message Boards so they can pretend they have friends. THAT is what they are really jealous of. The responses of my friends here so far has proven that.
Of course, they will all be declared “sycophants and deluded fools” by the trolls, but then, one must consider the source, LOL
There are a few issues here that need to be addressed, however.
First, as I have said many times, all these people named and about thirty others in the same area are friends of mine. They have, out of the kindness of their hearts set up Dojo Press and allowed me to glean a miniscule stipend from the millions of dollars stolen by the “legitimate publishers.” In this post the author says that my books are more widely known and distributed than ALL the other Ninja authors combined. If that is so, where are my millions of dollars of royalties? I have nothing. My friends allow me to stay with them and use their toys. I am a Komuso, a wandering itinerant priest.” Just because there is “no record of my name in any directory in the world” does not mean I do not exist. Am I not here? Speaking to you now? You see, my friends, it doesn’t matter if you believe in me, what is important is that I believe in you.
By the way, if my books have sold so much better than all the others, perhaps it is because more people believe in and get something out of what I write than these other chaps. Only recent found out there were Polish translations of Ninja Mind Control that have been selling for twenty years. Never saw a nickel from them. BUT, have had quite few nice correspondents for Rumania and Poland who thanked me for teaching them how to breathe properly, calm their minds and heal their bodies. It is just possible that I am able to explain Kuji Kiri more clearly than these other authors. But, of course according to the trolls, that is impossible because I never studied it, LOL
This Neal fellow seems to think he is on some “noble mission to shut me down because someone might learn a self defense technique that doesn’t work from an unqualified instructor.” At the Hayes seminar I infiltrated, one of the techniques he taught was how to escape if a guy had a knife to your throat and your back to the wall. The trick was to raise your instep up between his legs and kick him in the balls. Now, what do you think will happen when you do that? His hands are going to whip to his groin and in the process slit your throat. Any decent self defense instructor knows that you must immobilize the weapon first. But, of course, according to the trolls, I couldn’t know that because I’ve never studied any martial arts at all, LOL
What these guys are objecting to is the same thing they hated about Bruce Lee and Count Dante. That I am willing to teach anyone and make is simple and quick and cheap. Most people don’t want to spend two to four years in a commercially successful Karate school being forced to sign a contract for several thousand dollars, being required to bow and scrape to the instructors (Americans are just naturally against bowing, LOL), being used as a punching bag by the teachers and senior students, required to go to tournaments and beat up strangers, breaking fingers and toes they must pay for themselves because their "masters" don't know how to heal them, and so on. Most people who have been beat up or who are afraid they are going to be, want a simple technique they can get even with. I give it to them. I make them equal to any mugger or Black Belt in a single lesson by telling the one technique that works every time against any opponent that is the hallmark of Ninjitsu invisibility– throw sand in their eyes and run away. That is the most simple, effective and non-violent self-defense technique known to man. Did I invent it? No, it also appears in Master Leung Ting’s book Skills of the Vagabonds, which was published AFTER I demonstrated this technique in Secrets of the Ninja in 1980. To me that proves that the Japanese Ninjitsu I learned came for Chinese vagabonds and wandering priests. And explains why many of the techniques have Chinese names. But, of course, that is impossible because according to the trolls, there are no real martial arts except Brazilian Jujitsu, LOL
As for Kata Dante, I am the only one teaching it and preserving the knowledge of an American martial arts pioneer who would have been discredited by trolls and forgotten by now if not for me. Ask Jon Pachivas about the time I performed the Dance of Death in five seconds for the judges at the Tampa Bay Open. I scared them to death. But they all knew John KEEHAN (not Keegan) and they all recognized his kata. Which is merely the Yang side that balances the Yin of non-violent Ninjitsu. But, of course, that too is impossible, according to the trolls, because Count Dante is not recognized as a real martial artist, even though the BDFS, of which I am a member because I have an ID Card and I got it at a seminar with a book regardless of what anyone else may say, is now being held up to me as a legitimate martial art that I am ripping off.
Fact is, we charge a one time fee and give you the power of a lethal weapon in a single day. Instead of milking dues out of you for years and teaching you crap.
But, the reason I am responding this time is the most disturbing quote of all from this tripe, where the author says they have “reviewed a videotape of a man in the yard at (address) and it would seem to be the same man.” Now, when these dickheads were just trashing me I ignored them. Because words can never hurt me. But what this passage means that these pimps sent their goon squad all the way to Florida to hide in the bushes like the peeping Toms they are and stalk my friends like registered sex offenders with their little voyeur cams.
Any of the fifty or so students who came and trained with me in the Green Swamp over the past twenty years know, one of the places I stay is a 3-bedroom ranch style house that is so far out in the bush it doesn’t even have a street address. And that is not in my name either.
For all the time and money and energy you dickheads have wasted here you could have got together and put up the money and paid for me to get in the ring and kill one of you in public, but you won’t because you are cowards. As they say in DC, “you boys stepped over the line.” And just so we learn some political lesson from all this, are these trolls not doing to me the same ting they have done to the president? They keep “phishing for documents or responses” till they get enough bits to fabricate a conspiracy and if they can’t find evidence of their delusions, they make it up. When they get caught they whine about free speech and say we must “move on.” But, here they are, still beating a dead horse that no one cares about and trying to deny us the right to congregate and discuss the martial arts as WE SEE FIT, without their moronic opinions being considered.
You want a war, fine. You want to track down and harass my friends, fine. Now, you will all learn why you fear the darkness. Me and my boys will be coming for you. And we won’t be shooting pictures, brother.
