University of Wyoming Shorin-ryu Karate
It appears I may have accidently fallen into a Mcdojo, or worse, ended up taking instruction from a Bullshido-ist.
Roughly six months ago, I came to the University of Wyoming and found out about a karate group that is an organization related to the University (they recieve University funding and space). I'd always wanted to try some form of martial art, so I decided to try a this particular one out (yes, yes, I was a little naive). This group has been around for over 25 years and charges a fee of $40 dollars a semester.
There's only one problem (which at the time I started didn't know was a problem): JKI affiliation and an instructor of questionable qualification. The instructor's name is Dan Hausel, he's been brought up once before on this forum as a possible scammer, but I can't get much information on him to know for sure.
How can I go about deciding this groups ligitamacy? If they are illigitamate, I'm in a fairly good position as a reporter to denounce the group publically, but I certainly need hard information either way before I proceed.

One last question: anybody know any good martial arts groups in Laramie Wyoming?
