    It was a tad aggressive for my tastes, but you certainly kept a professional tone. If he didn't look like he had something to hide, he does now.

    Bust that fucker. With a cap. In his head. But yeah, just tell him you're a potential student or something, they'd love that. Or just see straight through your Bully Ass and cut off connection until you show up to their McDojo and start snapping necks and ****.

    But yeah, if he's not listed in BJA (I love that function) that means he's a Gokyu with an attitude and ego. Period. How is the BJA anyways? I've done USJF and USJA (the politics here is NUTS) and they're okay if a little quirky at times.

    I also neglected to mention earlier in the thread that around the time he claimed to have "stopped teaching judo" I have it on good authority that he was wearing a green belt.

    Hence my suprise at his sudden and big promotion to 5th Dan. I'd be really interested to see if any of the large Judo bodies over here would award a 5th Dan to a green belt from a BJA club.

    Anyway the BJA is quite good, not the biggest in numbers by membership, but certainly the best quality and the guys that put forward national squads and olympic teams.

    A 5th Dan in the BJA would have had to fight for all those gradings, and couldn't have had it easy.

    This is probably why Mike here decided not to, which is weird because he himself claims to have taught at a BJA club, but not graded with the BJA? Perplexing.

    Basically the BJA won't hand out a 5th Dan, you have to gain all the point via competetion or at line ups at gradings, either way requires fighting people of at least equal ability.

    After 5th Dan the gradings are honorary, i.e a 6th Dan might be given to a 5th Dan with 35 years in scene and lots of dedication, or a 5th Dan who has coached a World/Olympic gold medallist etc etc

    Yes I agree in Hindsight the emails on my behalf were a tad aggressive, I just didn't want to flatter the guy, at all.

    Maybe he meant 5th KYU. Easy mistake to make. I get 9th kyu mixed up with 9th dan all the time, mostly when I'm talking to girls for some reason.

    If the problem with "Shihan" Mike Johnson is down to him mixing up "5th Dan" and "5th Kyu" I wll buy both of you a steak dinner and press-up pudding.

    Looks like he's mixing up reality with something different...

    Hey, Sauce-boy... you planning on any follow up emails?

    Is press-up pudding slang for a prostitute, or is that something you folks across the pond actually eat? Oh, wait...I suppose the answer to both parts of that question could be 'yes'

    Have they got their own forum? Might be worth bringing this to the attention of his students.
