    Anyone from Denver knows about this guy. Now I'm not saying he's a Mcdojo for running a successful business...or even that the school is called Karate when he actually teaches TKD (Karate has become pretty much a generic term).

    What I beleve elevates Mr. Oliver to McDojo status is his glut of 9 year old 4th degree black belts. I'm not talking a person who's been a 4th degree for 9 years...I'm talking about a 9 year old who is a 4th degree. This guy is the epitomy (sic?) of the BB factory. 3 year contracts with heavy penalties for early cancellation are standard. for a while he said he was an 8th degree but when several local MA's called him on the self-promotion he demoted himself to 7th.

    Here's the icing on the cake. When he opened a school in Boulder Colorado he ran an ad looking for instructors. The kicker? the ads last line stated "No martial arts training required."

    Good find. Make sure you submit them in the Links section as a McDojo.
