Creotology - Grand Master Brady Cameron
I came across this recently and thought it might be interesting to those on here who enjoy calling these sort of people out. I did a search of the BS forums for both the name of the style and the person running it and didn't get any hits. Mods, if there is already a thread on this or if you don't feel this is the proper place or worthy of investigation please feel free to remove this thread. I haven't been on in a while and don't want to upset the apple cart.
Now, on to the style/school/soke at hand. At first glance when you look at the videos and read the descriptions of the style it appears to be nothing much more than your typical jutsu of questionable lineage which, since they are a dime a dozen, doesn't really get my panties in a bunch these days. However, once you read further and check out the "Soke's" bio it begins to be apparent that this is actually some sort of cult-like situation and rather more than your typical mcdojo. I don't want to overstate the situation here but when you read a few of the links and start looking into the "programs of study" and courses offered things start to look more than a little scary, at least from the outside.
Here is a link to the homepage: http://www.bradycameron.com/aboutus.html
A quick search on youtube also shows some demo videos that may be worth a look for anyone that is interested. I decided against posting them here to make the thread easer to read in the short term. If it is worth adding them later, that would be fine with me as well.
I have no link to these people, no personal vendetta against them, and in fact had not heard of them until a couple of days ago. I guess the real concerning part from my view is the very real possibility of people being suckered into a martial arts cult and taken advantage of.
I look forward to the discussion.
