    Baytown, TX: TKS Martial Arts and Fitness - The Great Yamashita

    An outfit called TKS Martial Arts has a BJJ program headed by a Robert Cantu, who has changed his surname to Yamashita and promotes his class as "Yamashita BJJ." His bio doesn't say who he trained under, and his picture shows him in a blue belt with his right gi lapel crossed over his left:

    I wonder why he changed his surname. I have heard it done before but the legitimate ones were a really rare case. The illegimate ones sere just jackass trying to scam money.

    Man, seems Royce can't get a break. The lingering questions surrounding him giving rank away at seminars coupled with his steroid headlines come together to form the sorriest Voltron I've seen!

    If what looks like the right flap is actually the left flap, the fortune cookie crease in the belt knot should be facing the the direction the flap is crossed, not the other way. You'd think that if Cantu is such a Japanophile as to change his surname to Yamashita that he'd pay attention to details like that.

    While this may become just a nother notch in my belt of "Jumping to assumptions then watching it nip me in the arse a little later"'s I'm gunna have to agree with you there. Anyone who knows grappling knows Yamashita and if he wants to sucker in the unsuspecting (Whether his training is any good or not) that might be a way to grab the casually informed grappler's attention.

    Also, when I saw Yamashita in the BS Forum my mind instantly did a mental "WTF??????"

    You've got to be too fucking anal to actually train.
