    "This video shows Sifu Kai Uwe Jettkandt, a member of the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame and a Shaolin Wahnam instructor in Germany, teaching his students how to use Kung Fu techniques against Muay Thai and Kickboxing. Notice how Sifu Jettkandt is both stable and agile in his use of traditional Kung Fu stances."

    Maybe I'm missing something, but he doesnt appear to move like someone who's mastered anything...

    The Guru Muay Thai stood out for me as well - I trained MT as a teenager and the top guys were known as Master - e.g. Master Toddy and Master Sken. I know it's been well over a decade since I trained, but I dont think anything changed.... Never heard of "Ajarn" - is that the Thai word for master?

    Apparently he was awared the title of Grandmaster in JJ by his Sifu in Shaolin because he's trained students who are masters. Go figure... Bullshido at it's finest.

    I have now asked a bunch of questions seeking validation of the mastery in the other 7 arts he claims. Im guessing he was probably awarded them as well.

    Silat instructors are also known as Guru's, not guro's(because silat is indonesian, as oppsoed to filipino). Guru is the most generic term, and any rank of meaning within the system would have an additional word for it

    Guru is the most gangster term I've ever heard applied in martial arts. It's worth training years in an Indonesian MA just to gain this title.

    Anyway to verify this?
    If he means the BJJ and Subgrappling Internationale Deutsche Meisterschaft (IDM) I would ask for names because the man who runs it was my first BJJ BB and I attended them in 2003 and 2004. Still I could get the results for 2005 form Micheal.

    This is the biggest BJJ tournament in Germany and Michael is a member of the German Top Team and AFAIK the only German BB in Germany.

    Your first BJJ BB? Do you mean that you gave him a black belt in BJJ?

    Thanks Asia - I have requested the details from him already, but Im now being told I havent asked in a polite enough manner to warrant an answer. Amazing.

    Also - I've never heard of awards for fastest submission or best technique in a tournament. Is it a German thing (or a normal BJJ thing that I've missed?)

    Lights Out - I think Asia means the guy is the first BJJ BB he trained with.
