Well. someone beat me to it! This guys likes to run his mouth a lot and one of the bjj/vale tudo teachers from the gym across the street got wind of it and payed him a "friendly" visit while he was teaching a class! The "visit" was smooth at first but then some harsh words were said about eachother's abilities and the brazilian instructor challenged him to a fight. I have to hand it that the bullshido master DOES have some good skills and is a really tough fighter...but unfortunately he has no ground skills, tackle skills or any wrestling skills, so everything ended with a sweet rear naked choke on the first round and a dislocatated elbow by armbar in the second round. The moral...the guy still has a lot of students, still "teaches" a lot of systems, still runs his mouth a lot and everytime I pass in front of that sign I'm waiting to see : Master of the deadly brazilian jujitsu wrestling system or something like that. I guess he'll order some tapes and then proceed to master the system

My sensei sort of has this going on...the guy who taught weapons for him moved away and his sign still says "Weapons Training." No one really cares, the regulars are content to learn how to rip into an attacker with our bare hands, because, yeah, you don't want down the street with a sword. And prospective students are given that line as part of the pitch.

... And of course the dumb parents would sign their kids up and they would all end up in my "boxing class", which actually consists of them standing around looking confused while I manuever around the dojo shooting them with Nerf guns.
Speaking of marketing inconsistancies have a look at this:
... and this:
... and this:
Filipino Jujuitsu??? Do you know what they call Jujitsu on the Philippines? Not Modern Arnis, they call it Jujitsu. Filipino Karate??? What to they call karate in the Philippines? Not Modern Arnis, they call it Karate. Maybe this school is dumbing down for the great unwashed population that doesn't know anything about FMA to make a buck. Nothing like bastardizing a martial art in the interests of commercialism eh?
Compare the calender page with the programs page and you'll see that they don't match up very well.
Have a look at thess too:
Where did this guy learn those smooth moves?
BTW, there's a picture of Primo (Acekicken) on the instructor page.
