    According to this website:

    http://www.ninjutsu.com/hombudojo.shtml

    His Dojo is listed and in that listing it states his Rank : 5th Dan.

    Although on the same website under IBDA Ranking list there is no mention of any rank for Mike or Miguel Reina.

    You more senior Bullshido guys may be able to let me know if this site is a reliable source for Booj.
    The site's information is spotty. Just checking the handful of school's I'm familiar with turns up a number if inaccuracies. Some listed as open are closed, some that are closed re-opened. Some affiliations have changed, some instructors have changed... It's an indication that the instructor this thread is focused on is indeed under the Booj umbrella.

    Of course they do! How are they supposed to gain your confidence if they don't appear to be confident in the Booj themselves?

    "Con job" being slang for "confidence scam".

    A con man must appear to be sincere to gain your trust. The better they are at acting, the more people they can scam. The deeper into it you get, the more invested you are in the con. Cult martial arts are more about pyramid schemes than they are about fighting.

    As are cult religions and get rich quick schemes; they all want their participants that: 1. they are doing the right thing, and 2. the reward is close at hand, and 3. it is wrong to hold back financially. They can separate you from your money and logical thought process with very little work because they are based on confidence.

    It doesn't matter there's no difference between a guy playing ninja and being a fifth dan and a guy faking playing ninja and pretending to be a fifth Dan

    Man, all I can find are references to deadly poisons. Exactly like you siad, poison mushrooms, tetradotoxin, that kind of thing.

    While the use of less lethal substances are aluded too, I can't find any specific examples of what they used.

    Wose, these sources sight the very koolaid drinkers and pushers we're discussing here.

    It would make sense though to dose potential victims so as to disorient and confuse them. This is an old trick and not unique to the Ninja at all....

    It's ok. When I first joined, I harassed Ashida Kim because I thought it would impress everyone here. He got my AOL account banned.
    I managed to dig up the message Sam Browning sent to me in response to the thread I started about this years ago:

    Your idea of "fooling around" can possibly be interpreted by the police as harrassment. If you revisit this issue in your posts I will do my best to have you suspended or banned. Ashida would just love to have cause to complain to the police and you are not going to give him the grounds with your stupidity. You are not nearly half as clever as you think you are so don't kid about this issue.

    He deleted the thread, unfortunately, so I can't show it to you guyz.
