As to why no video, very simple the video as well as the evaluation was and is intended for Scott's betterment. Not for us to poke fun of.
No, it was never my intent to take anything away from Scott. I'm not looking to take his School or his rank away from him. My hand up to him is just that, I honestly wish to help him any way I can. Either though attitude developement or through knocking the rust off his skills and getting him back upto said level.
I know in my life I've made my fair share of mistakes and I've had elders in my life who have stepped up to help me even when I kept making the same mistakes over and over again. This is what I'm offering, I'm not addressing any of these past issues other than helping him develope some type of a neutral ground with those around him. In time maybe we can revisit the past and make amends.
As for Scott closing his school this will never happen unless he runs out of students or money as he offers free classes he will always have students, what a person chooses to do with their income or student loans is really their choice. As for seeking training under another, the offer was made by the majority of the review board all he has to do is ask. But if he wishes to train with or under some one else that is his choice also.
This site has not hurt his student base to date as I know of. Each student has to decide for them selves what they want and is it worth their personal time and or money.
Would I let him teach my children, I'm an instructor so I will teach my children in time. If I knew nothing then I can't say for sure as I want to know that they will be learning how to defend them selves along with kicks and punching drills and kata. All is important other wise you just get half a style.
As for my agenda, I have none other than to teach and help others to better them selves.
Sorry if that seems to old fashion by todays MMA standards.
The only thing I'm truely guilty of is my dealings with Mr. Fox which I've emailed him about.
Just like I explained to my partner long ago Scott's students are with him for their reasons and if I walk in and try to shut him down just because I think I know better. They will just see me as some type of arogant ass and thus ignore anything that I have to say even if I'm right. The students are with him for their own reasons, just like your students stay with you and mine stay with me.
I don't expect this site to take me seriously in any way they are what they are, and like many of the members here your not looking for any validation so why should I. I'm old enough to stand on my own and I have for the last 20 years of my 40 years of life.
I ask that the members here help me in not cause me new issues to deal with while I'm working with Scott. But I don't believe that they will after all most of them have already made up their minds about him. Fine, I'll move forward then in my efforts, my time is sparce at best between work, family and martial arts. So my progress with Scott will be slow also, but so long as he is willing then so will I.
This will be the last post from me until I have something truely positive to discuss about Scott.
So go ahead an make any funny comments you feel are nessary. My hide is very thick other wise I would have walked away from Scott along time ago.
You take care and I wish your site well.
