    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Dr. Steve Miller

    Knowing the penchant for many of the members of this site for sniffing out Scam Artist Douche Bags I thought I would see what y'all think of this guy: Dr. Steve Miller of Canadian Martial Arts Academy in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada

    http://www.canadianmartialartsacademy.com/

    If any thing turns up on this guy I am sure the moderators will move it to a more appropriate area.

    I see you've only got a few posts, just like me, so welcome to bullshido.

    What exactly do you think this guy is? A fraud of some sort? Or does he run a McDojo?

    Do you have any proof of this?

    I saw the guy's site, and while his list of certifications is long, it certainly is possible for him to hold them.

    Also, one other thing, are you an ex-student or do you have any history with him?

    Hello and welcome to bullshido. This thread won't be moved until you state the purpose of your inquiry. He teaches kempo, among many other things, and you do kempo. So, there is a question of why he is on you radar.

    I met him once for about 10 seconds a few years ago and my skin crawled. Then I joined a kenpo association that he was part of and hear he was a 9th degree under the late J. T. Will, but J. T. Will died an 8th degree Black Belt.

    I also have worked with people on the floor with people who have had strange dealings with him on the mat.

    He also calls himself a Dr. of Naturalpathic Medicine, he has a little massage table in his office which has one wall that is all windows and as people drive by they can see him doing adjustments on people.


    This guy sets off every warning bell I have. Soke of his own system, high ranks in several other systems. All the ninjutsu associations having the same people in them including the heads of those organizations. It all feels way too fishy. I believe he is a fraud.

    Then you better start digging because everything you just said doesn't make him a fraud. My denist has big open bay windows. Adjustments with huge windows, unless they are fully nude, makes sense. Less of a chance for some type of sexual harassment or prostitution when people can get a glimpse into the area.

    Taijustu and Ninjutsu? There ranking is questionable anyway. I could go on for a hundred posts on why he is a Mcdojo and not a fraud. Still, if your "warning bells are going off" do you "due diligence" and start researching.

    Bulshido has changed when it comes to investigation and we have cracked down on "hmm red flags" and "he;s a fraud prove he isn't" threads.

    Go look at the associations he claims for his doctorates, find out who awarded him his ranks, prove the comment about "All the ninjutsu associations having the same people in them including the heads of those organizations" with links, pictures, and advertisements.

    I don't care enough to investigate, but this list is pretty great:

    10th** Degree Black Belt: Bushidoshin Ryu Taijitsu

    9th Degree Black Belt - Kenpo Karate

    8th Degree Black Belt: Ninjitsu

    7th Degree Black Belt - Jujitsu

    2nd Degree Black Belt - Aikijitsu

    1st Degree Black Belt - Chinese Shaolin Kenpo

    Instructor level: Mugei-Mumei No Jitsu

    Instructor level: Yang Lu-Chan Taijiquan

    Instructor level: Yang Cheng-Fu T'ai Chi Ch'uan

    Instructor level: Wudang Shan

    Instructor level: Fa'Jing Ch'uan & TaiJi Boxing

    Instructor level: Chin na

    Instructor level: Dim Mak

    Instructor level: Hao Chuan

    Special Distinctions:

    12th Degree Black Belt - Bushidoshin Ryu Taijitsu - Soke Shodai - Family Head

    Inducted into the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame as Master of Martial Arts


    I like how he's both a 10th, and a 12th degree blackbelt in Bushidoshin Ryu Taijitsu.

    Here are two links with Mr. Angel as head of the association

    Gotta love seeing Ashida Kim in the membership

    I will find more when I have more time.

    Here is a Kenpo link as well.

    Was removed from the association, and ordered to stop using their certifications to support his ranks and business

    Ok, just a thought here, but you may want to look at some of the other investigations. Because it doesn't seem like just saying "They told him to stop" would qualify for the type of evidence they want.

    Haven't had much time to do digging today, and truthfully I am not as adept some of the others on this site as others at finding information about people. Hopefully I will have time over the next few days to look some more.

    http://www.canadianmartialartsacadem...ontact-us.html is the link to his contact page. Perhaps one could start by asking where his 7th dan JJ came from. The Ninjer and Ke?po stuff is more easily faked, imho, than JJ, this image is from http://uskakenpo.com/International_9D3F.html
