Reason: bad spelling. sorry
youve got a hundred posts. By now you should know you should've done a little more research before 'calling him out' or whatever this kind of post is.
Especially since you don't actually list a complaint except that you 'dunno'.
It looks ****, Ninjitsu and stuff, but a lot of schools do some weird **** to cover the bills.
What is your gripe with this school?
edit: Actually the guy is a foreign French legion guy, who really does not make very outlandish claims at all. He teaches strength and conditioning and other military like ****, as well as some martial arts for which he lists reasonable experience.
The only thing that confuses me is that he teaches Ninjitsu instead of BJJ, since he's a purple in that he should probably realize what the 'real' fighting system is. But that is entirely up to him I guess.

Reason: read the website more
I've seen this guy's posters around before. I just figured that he felt he could make more money off the ninjerism than BJJ.
I inquired a while back about his school. He said he's a purple belt in BJJ which he got in one year. Sounds fishy to me.
If Slobodan "Solomon Ostojic" is the same chap then he is listed as a BJJ purple for Alliance under an Ismael Souza.
Only did a Google translate of the page so if someone with some proper language skills can take a look, then that would be helpful.
Sherdog lists Ismael Souza here.
after attaining the same level of indifference, I dunno either. I just dunno and doncare and wonno and woncare. This investigation is very unfulfilling.
I was surprised to see the school actually appears legit. I also wonder why he teaches ninjitsu when he's a bjj purple. The fact someone mentioned that he got his purple within a year is also a little alarming, but maybe the guy has trained grappling for years before formally testing.
Still, if I had a friend who wanted some basic self defense skills and wanted to take up MA as a hobby, I don't think i'd tell them not to check out the school. I might give them a little schpeal about ninjitusu so they don't get fooled into believing they're learning a centuries old art but the school looks okay.
Sorry , Syph et' al. no gripe really. And my apologies if I posted in the wrong forum. The 'finding a good martial arts school' and a link to this came to me on the same day.

Reason: i'm a dope
Found this thread when search for new Ottawa-related threads. I know it's not new but I figured I'd chime in anyways.
I saw this school's eye-catching posters when they were plastered all over downtown Ottawa. Out of curiosity, I contacted the school to find out where they train and how much it costs. The person who replied said that they train mostly outdoors and said it would cost something ridiculous like 300$/month. EEP. No thanks.
I just found this thread. My name is Guillaume Huni , I'm a BJJ black belt, run my own academy called Kimura Academy Serbia and I'm also the editor of the Website BJJ Eastern Europe bjjee.com.
Let me tell you one thing: Slobodan "Solomon" Ostojic is LEGIT. I've trained BJJ with him since 2001 on Paris. Back then he was a blue belt that had come back from spending 6 months in Brazil training under Ismael Souza of Alliance. His BJJ is legit. He won many BJJ competitions in France and got promoted to BJJ purple belt in 2002 or 2003. He is also a kickboxing and karate champion from back in Yugoslavia (now Serbia). He also spent some time in the French foreign legion. Solomon is a legit badass and also a genuine nice guy and gentleman.
