I would take away a students yellow belt if they did Shiho-nage or kote-gaishi like that."Quiet fool before I am kicking the butt!"

Yeah that is what I'm saying. Okay just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me misintepreting the techniques.
I won't even touch the salutes and poses after every technique.

My cousin gave me some tapes of him doing tkd. I learned from those tapes. When I beat up an Akido instructor, and made him take rest breaks, I used TKD. I learned Bjj from watching ufc and pride and then I copied them and wrestled my cousin for practice. I choked him out and he tapped.

It's funny to me how he won't mention his ex-Genbukan teacher's name. He probably lasted a few kyus then went on to something else more than likely.
The only hits I got for a search on "Mikeba Ryu Ninjutsu" that I found were on BudoSeek, where they basically exposed it as being false.
Post 17 is where the guy starts talking about it, 19 is where they do a lot of info into it, and then by the end they find out it's really sketchy.
Also a fun little sidenote: Gyokushin is not a koppojutsu school. Gyokushin is actually a Ninpo school and might be related to Gyokko Ryu, which is kosshijutsu. Koppojutsu is "bone method", basically controlling your opponent through the natural limitatons of his bone structure and even breaking them. Kosshijutsu is mostly attacks on pressure points and the muscles by using tearing or rending attacks. That's a pretty big difference.
Nagano Ryu Jujutsu only turns up in those same BudoSeek threads, as well as Akutagawa Ryu Jutaijutsu and Ugai Koga Ryu Ninjutsu. Since the last teacher of Koga Ryu died in an automobile accident a long time ago, it'd be kind of hard for him to get out of his grave to run students through drills.

I am new on the forum and this is my first post/response but there is something I did not see fully addressed in other comments about this dude. He claims to be a 7th dan at 28?
First off, as I am sure most of us know, dan rankings certainly above godan are very rare . . . and at 28 to be equal to a 7th dan is odd, to say the least. Where did he claim to get his ranking from again?
Truly, different arts are different but come on, that kind of ranking at that age is suspect.
