    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Did he make this up?

    I found a MA instructor near me, but something smells fishy.

    http://www.theacademyofmartialarts.net/stines.htm

    I can't find any info. about his style, did he make it up? I called the dojo but he was not there. The lady at the school gave me enough information to find these:

    http://www.pancrase.co.jp/en/fighters/en/stines.html
    and
    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/f...fighterID=1095

    Is this guy Bullshido? Does the fact that he was a pro negate his negative points? Any opinions?

    I know nothing about the guy or his style.

    Go down there and talk to him, watch a class. Then decide if it "smells fishy".

    If he's gone toe to toe with Ian " The Machine " Freeman he must be a good fighter.:)

    I don't think he's lying on the site. Like Osiris said, look at he's record. He seems to be pretty honast, from what I've seen so far. I'd check it out.

    ISJA Sports Jujitsu dude is MMA lite. If he has rank in that he's definitely pretty solid. I don't smell anything fishy.

    Lol for a second, I thought the dot in the ying yang poster was part of his hair, and he had it the way anime samurais have it, rolled up and pinned back.

    Looks like Shihan Stines is in tight with the ninjas of the Yamabushi Ninjutsu Dojo in Spokane, WA.

    Come to think of it, I believe there used to be a Yamabushi Ninjutsu Dojo in Corbin, KY, of which Stines was one of the head instructors, if not the head instructor. Why no mention of the ninjutsu in his other links?

    Thanks everyone. I was very impressed with him for being a pro, but just unsure about his style. I'm such a noob that I was afraid almost anything would sell me. I'll check him out for sure now. I must admit that the ninja thing is, well, not cool though.
