I'm curious how Wil was able to enroll in the Ohio State Police Academy if he had a prior felony conviction...Doesn't really pertain to the claims he made about his grappling experience, but I'd be interested to hear Wil's explanation regarding LEO training. Did he open enroll? Was he hired by an agency in Ohio? Per the Ohio code is he even ellgiable to be a sworn officer?
Could be that the "I'm too busy to coach because I'm in the polilce academy" thing is just bullshit too...
Oh well...I'm interested to see what this turns up on the guy.

I think the best practice for conducting investigations is to address core martial arts issues, and cite supplementary information from the individual's criminal and/or military history only as it becomes specifically relevant. When the subject of an investigation turns out to be clean, you don't want to have put out any more of their information than was necessary to examine the question. Just because every bread crumb leading to a person's front door is in plain site doesn't mean you have to draw people a map and nail it up in the public square. Put up everything needed to answer the question "Is this person doing a disservice to the martial arts consumer" and nothing more, within the limit of your common sense.
As regards the question of missed child support payments, I'd say it goes to their character or their wallet, and there is most likely no way to tell the difference. I wouldn't touch that unless I had solid evidence showing the person had plenty of means to pay, and chose not to. And even then, only if that helped advance an important argument.

Really, I feel the child support issue should not be discussed UNLESS it becomes relevant to the martial art investigation later. Stick to the martial art claims, which is what this thread is about. Whether or not he has not paid, or has caught up, or was falsely or rightly convicted, what the circumstances are we do not know. At this point, I dont see relevance in regard to establishing his martial art training and skill. Having said that, if he himself was using the fact to drum up business? That seems pretty odd. As does his use of disabled kids to deflect inquiry and rationalize poor skill shown in the original video.One of the best Bullshido investigations ever written: http://www.bullshido.org/David_Kujawski_Investigation

Is it possible to contact Joe Neely (can't find any contactinformation) and ask him if he remembers Will, what his level was when he stopped and all the usual business.
From the vid of Joe Neely, he looks like a dedicated and skilled coach that takes some pride in his teachings, so I would be surprised that he gave Will his 'blessings' to start teaching at the level of skill that I'm seeing in Will's vids.Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method
