    Chuushin Do; as taught by the Black Tiger Martial Arts Academy

    Please for you to enjoy (long post but hopefully entertaining):

    http://www.btmaa.com/

    "Louisville's Premier Martial Arts Academy"

    THE ART:
    Local studio offering classes in "Chuushin Do"... a style described as:

    Quote Originally Posted by Shihan

It is a hard and soft style of martial arts training influenced by both Japanese and Chinese methods of study. Chuushin Do, when translated means, the Way of Balance. This is literal and hypothetical. This art teaches one how to be true ones self. It is so often in our daily life that we think one way feel one way and do something that is completely different. So in essence we are out of harmony with ourselves and thus unbalanced. Chuushin Do is a method of teaching one how to calm the mind body and spirit and allow them to work harmoniously through physical mental and spiritual action via rigorous martial training. This type of heightened ability can not be acquired over the course of a few weeks or months, for the diligent student one may be able to grasp this awareness towards the end of the first five years of training.
    At least they're not using GUNS!!

    Ok, apart from some grammatical errors sounds pretty typical but it made me lol nonetheless.

    Oh, and if you study with Shihan for five years you can attain Th3 4waReN355!!

    Then it gets a bit scary...

This was usually done by doing chores around the teachers, house or dojo followed by a strict obedience to the instructor. Furthermore the individual was, in a sense, adopted by the instructor. Over the course of training the student may sustain minor or moderate cuts, springs, bruises, and even broken bones in order to achieve a heightened level of understanding of the art, but none so serious as to permanently hinder the student from training. During training the student would undergo rigorous tasks. These tasks would be mental and physical. They would test the students’ physical and mental dexterity then push them to become stronger. At the command of the teacher the student would spend hours on end sometimes with no food or water training on specific techniques and drills. In situations such as this the teacher may disappear for some time but still be comforted in knowing that upon his return the student would still be diligently studying. Here in modern times finding student, teacher, and parent relationships such as this is rare. If one truly devotes their self and trains it is not rare for one to find oneself icing down bumps and bruises from time to time, but with a skillfully wise and experienced instructor injuries will be held at a minimum. The bond between teacher and student eventually becomes like that of father and son.

    This is the way of Chuushin Do, here the instructor also allows his students to practice their techniques on his own body, delivering devastating kick and hand strikes so that the student may gain a better understanding on how certain techniques may be effectively applied.
    Now mind you he's not saying that he necessarily makes all of his students partake in this but the fact that this is on the FRONT PAGE of the website just seems....off

    THE INSTRUCTOR:

    Other styles that sensei has studied are: Kobudo, Tae Kwon Do, Tai Chi, American kick boxing, judo, & Chin Na. Sensei has been studying the martial arts for 20 years and has been teaching since the age of 14 under Grandmaster Baba Serikali (CKA).
    He also claims to have military service where:

His martial arts background gave him the physical abilities necessary for the rigorous physical demands of warfare and his intense focus coupled with increase mental capacity allowed for his concentration to maintain in tact. When it came to sparring in with the pugal sticks or the exchange of technique in Marine Corps Martial Arts, Jefferson Gomani sensei’s skill was highly admired thus many recruits often asked for private lessons during down time
    Also, he has an interesting claim that his "Uncle Keith"

    All of this because

Jefferson Gomani sensei fell to the ground and the leviathan walked off joking about the spectacle with his friends. This event happened twice. The second time was due to the demand of his mother, Linda K. Jefferson. At the thought of the feeling of helplessness and the idea that if the hostile juvenile were to attack his mother he would be forced to remain there defenseless, tormented him. He vowed to never allow anything like this to ever happen again.
    I don't know about you but the way this whole site is written had me rolling. He never claims to have learned tH3 D34DlY but he is certainly making himself out to be quite the conquering hero...

    Also these were amusing:

    Tuition is to be paid promptly the first training day of every class.(for every day you are late you will be fined $1.00)
    All uniforms must be kept cleaned, ironed and in good repoire.
    Training in other schools or clubs is strictly forbidden unless given formal permission by the senior instructor
    "Monte!"...? :icon_geek

    Also found some Youtube videos for "Gomani":
    Here he is doing some hand conditioning using an old phone book (maybe?)
    YouTube - Hand conditioning

    Competing in Kumite (?) in 2008 (I love the patch on the back of his gi, Cobra Kai ain't got nothing on this guy)
    YouTube - Gomani sensei's Battle of Tenneessee Kumite 08

    There's various others as well, looks like he loses here in some point sparring
    YouTube - Gomani "Rising Star Nationals" sparring

    I don't know if there's any chance to uncover any real Bullshido here, just came across it while exploring the local Judo clubs and thought you guys might find it entertaining.

    If not, then I'll just go back to being a useless n00b.

    P.S. To the practitioners of Chuushin Do, gazundheit. :gwbdance:

    This sounds like an episode of SVU.

    I guess point sparring with foam dipped gear is a harsh mistress.

    Why is it that any school with an animal name or something with Academy at the end, usually questionable?

    There are quite a few holes in his bio, but nothing really screams Bullshido. He seems like the typical, light contact, way to much equipment while sparring super light contact, kind of school. His rank may be inflated, but at least he did not jump up to 7th, 8th, or 9th Dan with his few years of training.


    And if by some chance he reads this, Chung Do Kwan translates to Blue Wave School, not school of the blue house. GM Won Kuk Lee's original school was called the Bluehouse at Seoul National University.

    Nothing says "deadly" like point sparring with full-face helmets. :jihad:






    Edit: doesn't "chuushin do" mean "Way of the Middle" in Japanese?

    Chudan means middle. I have never heard anyone say chuushin before.

    But I am only at the early stages of "conversational" in my Japanese.

    Actually, we're both right. Chuushin indeed does mean center or middle, but it can mean a lot of other things depending on the Kanji.

    Unfortunately for "Gomani sensei", one thing it doesn't mean is balance.

    Edit: actually, it can indeed mean balance. Gomani sensei 1, Rexley 0.

    Actually CHU/NAKA (中) means middle/center.
    The read just denotes the middle of what.
    Example"
    Chudan (中段) middle grade
    Chugoku (中国) Middle Country/Kingdom aka China
    Nakayama (中山) middle mountain a common family name

    HOWEVER, This guy is right because Chuushin (中心) does indeed mean balance. It literally means Middle/Center Soul/heart/mind.
