Just my 2c
The BJJ people I've worked out under are similar types. The only rule in Westside BJJ here in Logan is to leave the ego at the door. From the skinny noob teen to the powerful skilled guys training for fights, just about everyone has a good attitude. And just like Hawaiian Kempo and Kyokushinkai, you get sweaty and try to wipe out the other guys, and not only remain friendly, you make better friends from the experience.
1. Taqa does not exist anymore for a year or longer. It was owned by a lady called Annien or something like that. The venue has since been sold. How can it be owned by Barnado & co? The fact that I will unequivocally stand by is that these guys claimed to be NMA instructors (Geez, I went there based on one of the flyers, man!)
2. As I said. The guy there SAID that he was one of Paul Cave's instructors. If this is not so, how come Paul Cave allows that?
3. If they have f*ckall to do with PC, how come they were displaying the NMA poster on the wall in their training area? How come, again, does PC or NMA not sort that out then? Do they want to be associated with them? Or do they just not care?
4. It still does not answer my query. WHERE IS PC's credentials? NOBODY wants to seem to want to answer that. And everytime I or someone else here or in Town asks for it, there is some excuse.
Kickassfighter, PAUL CAVE CLAIMS IN HIS MARKETING to be a Shihan. In which styles? Because any reasonable reading of his material looks like he is listing his credentials.
Can you tell me why the NMA and PC claims to be Shihan but cannot furnish recognised and respected credentials for all the styles he advertises in his marketing? Could you explain? Do you get what I am saying? He claims to be Shihan in Aikido etc etc etc etc, but the guy does not know the most basic, basic stuff about it. He has no certification that he can produce. Please, make it simple. Just show us the Shihan Certification in Aikido from Hombu in Tokyo or from the Ki Society. Because I promise you, not one of them has him certified as anything. Go find out for yourself. Now then, please tell me if this is the same with all the other styles he claims to be able to teach in. The only certification I have ever heard of this guy being able to produce is in Goju Ryu. Am I wrong? Please show me or please get him to remove those styles from his marketing. Isn't that honorable and fair and Bushido? Why is this such a sticking point? Why will nobody ante up?
Do you understand that it is offensive to claim to be SO ADEPT at a style that you can TEACH in it but then cannot provide credentials to that effect?
5. If you want to attack my points, attack ALL of them, please. Not just those you find vulnerable. The moment I see his credentials for ALL the art(S) he claims to be adept at, I promise you, as a fellow martial artist, I will apologise. Sincerely. And without reservation. Until then, Bullshido.
8. So what is it you want me to apologise for? The fact that I was led to believe that the guys at Taqa was under the NMA banner, with photos of PC and them together on the wall where they were getting dressed and posters on the wall and PC allows that? Or that I said that PC makes a Shihan claim on styles he does not have it on? Please clarify.
Kickassfighter - as a student of Paul Cave (or Paul Cave himself!) why haven't you answer with his credentials as requested? Because he is a fake and a fraud. Dont try to muddy the water with half truths - Ricco Hatting and Cave taught out of separate rooms in the Taqa building.
Now the mans been called out as a fake bjj instructor and a fake aikido instructor. I'm guessing hes got no qualifications to teach kali either. His marketing is bullshit and he should be exposed.
You want to defend your instructor? Smoke and mirrors isnt going to cut it - just answer this very very simple question - what qualifications has he got as an instructor in BJJ, aikido, or kali? We know the answer is none, otherwise you would have provided them a month ago.

I agree, there is nothing wrong with wearing a Gi. Saves on T-shirts. :)
Then for all who would like a measure of integrity: go here: http://www.kickboxing.co.za/
Look at the date. I guess now I know why we are always waiting for the credentials.
BeachCarl: I enjoy a logical mind. Thanks for summing that up so nicely.
There carry on.
Shihan Paul Cave never taught at Taqa. You are confusing him and Mike Bernado
So, where are PC's credentials? Paul Cave is a FAKE??? So, where are PC's credentials? Paul Cave is a FAKE??? So, where are PC's credentials? Paul Cave is a FAKE??? So, where are PC's credentials?

Here, perhaps this might help our understanding:
