How does this affect the MegaTD?
I always get those mixed up.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Anthony, so what? The man taught bullshido. So what? How many of these teachers actually realize they're teaching bullshido? I seriously doubt JFS thought he was teaching crap as he probably didn't know any better. Like you said, he admits he has little ground knowledge. The question to ask is did he portray himself as a ground expert in this seminar? Or was this groundfighting presented as a general guideline? You would need to talk to someone who went to one of these seminars to get an answer.
What matters is what he teaches now that he has been exposed to grapplers with more than rudimentary skill (Drummerboy). IIRC, JFS stated in one of his posts that Drummerboy was teaching him some grappling. So JFS is learning and adapting. That is the most important detail IMHO. It would be different if he refused to learn or recognize change.
None of this changes or excuses the severity of his online threats and challenges. The legal ramifications of this behavior are a legitimate concern for Bullshido.
I like JFS. I'm also aware that he isn't perfect. He shook things up here and gained a huge amount of notoriety in a very short period of time. As a consequence of this and JFS's feud with almost all staff members at one time or another the focus of your investigation smells like a witch hunt.
*the Southwest Airlines ding* You are now free to tell me to **** off.Shut the hell up and train.

I´ll be the first to admit my opinion of him is based on third party accounts I read here, specifically on one of the throwdown threads. Also, I have not posted or lurked here lately, real life got in the way.
I´d watch the videos and read the threads you mentioned, but quite frankly, I do not have much time to play around here, so I´ll take your word for it when you say he did a pathetic job at grappling. I´ll also consider JFS was responsible for the marketing involved in that seminar.
Even if we consider all that, I do remember reading that JFS is indeed a bloody good striker, which means that, whatever else he is, he is NOT a bullshido artist.
Imagine a Gracie teaching bad kickboxing: sure, it´s none of his business and he should not be charging money for it, but calling him a bullshido artist if he only did it once is indeed going too far, wouldn´t you agree?
BTW, I am only trying to be fair here. I am in Brazil, none of what happens here affect me in any way, I have no interest in any kind of cult of personality.That civilisation may not sink,
Its great battle lost,
Quiet the dog, tether the pony
To a distant post;
Our master Caesar is in the tent
Where the maps are spread,
His eyes fixed upon nothing,
A hand under his head.

His photo-jitsu is good..ha ha ha um But JFS is a master of wudang ************-fu. This is hard to beat. I supose Anthony will respond with Shalolin logic-flower method and point out the flaws in the photo-jitsu Jfs grapling. To which we shall see a new and vigorus ************-fu attack utilizing the I-fucked-your-mom-ryu keyboard asult.

I accused JFS of this yesterday, he decided to ignore it, as a habit of his when doesn't like a subject matter.
Untill he comes in this thread, and says what you just posted, about not knowing what he was doing but still teaching it for money, he is still guilty of teaching Bullshido.
So you are saying if I wasn't' staff, it would be okay? Since I only got moderator status about 4 or 5 days ago, if I did it back then, it's not a witch hunt?
The proof is in this thread, I let it stand for itself.Originally Posted by Sifu Rudy Abel
