I recently found another JKD school in the area, and they do alot of competeing. (everything from point sparring, kickboxing, and mma) When I asked them who they were certified under, they said they were certified under Gary Dill.
Do any of you (especially the JKD people) know about him? Is he any good?

What is certified as a Professor in?
As well as being a world known authority on JKD, Professor Dill is also a fully certified grandmaster of Bushido Kempo, a pure combat system with techniques from Karate, Ju-Jitsu, Aiki-Jitsu, Gung Fu, and weaponry. He has been inducted into several martial art hall of fames, and is a member of three different grandmaster councils. He has also received official rank recognition from mainland China as an 8th Degree Black Sash in Chinese Wu Shu. The Professor has been active in the martial arts since 1963, and hold black belts in several different combat martial arts.
On a personal note, Professor Dill has spent many years in law enforcement, having served as a federal intelligence agent, state police criminal investigator, and as a chief of police. He was also a firearms instructor and a senior police defensive tactics instructor. He is a Vietnam veteran, and served in both the US Marine Corps and in the US Navy, and was a special agent with Naval Intelligence (NIS). Professor Dill now delegates all of his time to teaching the combat arts.

Are there *any* martial art halls of fame or grandmaster councils that are not mere mutual recognition scams?

My first post here, so take it for what it's worth:
If you're asking whether he is the George Dillman of dim mak/pressure point/ no-touch knockout fame, the answer is no.
As for his training, I've only taken a JKD seminar with him and while he seemed quite knowledgeable and his advanced students appeared very solid, but I left thinking that (at least his style of) JKD was not the style for me.
Here, hold these for me.

What didn't you like about it?
Just curious. He's known as a Nucleus guy.
I grew up in a concepts school....
Back to my question: was it schlocky? Too prescripted?
Not enough live action?
EDIT: I take that back. I don't know if he's a Nucleus guy.
I had him confused with someone else. Sorry.

The easiest things to check here are the police chief claim, and ex military claims. Start from there.
