A guy on MSN gave this website address when i said i was researching MA and said they teach lot of things in self defence. I think he's full of ****, and i think this is maybe a mcdojo..... http://www.andersonbushikai.com/
You can always dig up dirt from their forums.
Their history page mentions incorporating BJJ and Muay Thai and also notes something about Goju Karate (I believe there are practioners on this site) but there's nothing that seems clear cut bullshido.
You'd have to attend a class and see for yourself before making the final judgment I think.
They mention somthing about Zen Do Kai being their style on the website. I think that Zen Do Kai has been talked about here before.

ABK. This is not a Mcdojo.
Care to elaborate seeing as this is nearly a 2 year old thread?

Essentially ABK is based on the Goju system but takes some early principles of Zen Do Kai which was developed by Bob Jones around 1972. Go To www.zendokai.com.au to read about this style. It is a good style also. But no ABK.
Up until around the year 2000 O Kaicho Malcom was the 2ic of ZenDoKai and he is one of the Ist generation of Black belts to come out of that system.
Without going on ABK seeks to go back to the early roots of Zendokai when its focus and curriculum was not shortened just to get people to black quickly.
Of course I cannot vouch for every Bushikai club but the standard is a lot higher than most Zen do Kai clubs I have personally witnessed.
I believe Zendokai is a business first and a martial arts school second.
ABK currently is the opposite.
