Well, I used to live in Idaho Falls.

I used to live there. I wasn't really impressed with Mr. Mooney. Of course, back then he was Idaho Falls Kenpo Karate Academy. I don't know that he has ever done MMA.

One of the biggest things that bothers me is that he claims on most of his ads, "The #1 martial arts facility" in that city. According to who? As far as I can tell, according to an online poll on his own website, but who knows. I know that businesses can be sued for such claims if they can't back it up.
If any of you guys go over there, give us an update!

Personally, I don't think he has been rated by anyone. I checked out his website and thought it sounded like a lot of fluff. I think with the current UFC craze he is trying to fool people into thinking he knows about MMA. I will get in touch with my friends in IF and see what they think.

Rumor has it that many of the people that have left did so because they were tired of his lies and the fact that they weren't learning any information. Some people were even getting promoted without knowing the required information. They say he has pissed off a lot of people. If you do check out the school personally, let me know if the rumors have a basis.

There's only one legitimate BJJ place in Idaho Falls (http://www.idahofallskarate.com/)... this guy is a piece of bullshido that smells of farts and tostitos... no names, no ranks...
(is that better omega?)

Legally, I must inform you that accusing somebody of a fraud must be proven by actual criminal actions. If you accuse somebody of a fraud you may be held libel in civil court. You may choose to change your words to something that cant' be judged in court; like bullshit artist.

My friend says that he doesn't have formal training in BJJ or anything else besides Kenpo. Supposedly there is some lady that started her own place after leaving his.

Thanks for trying to help SA but, we need verification. All you are doing is bumping a thread with rumors and hearsay.
If you can get one of your friends to go by the school, to give an accounting, that would be great.

I've been researching, the lady runs a Kenpo school in Idaho Falls and apparently they ended on ill terms because he was taking advantage of her kindness. Look her up... J&A Karate.
