That had to be the most entertaining,humiliating,squash fest I
HAVE EVER SEEN!ROTFLMAO.I watched for a month or so,laughing all
the way.Ashida or as his cronies would refer to him "Master",did
cause an uproar with his madness,cowerdice,and just plain stupid
anctics.To refer back and you guys know where I'm going with this.
To The time,he was not satisfied with defeat he had to justify
his new action by accusing this board along with his group of
kids that you guys were the ones at fault for his ill happenings.
I just sat backed and enjoyed the show,LOL it goes to show that
what you did is in essence put him in place.He was the one who
responded in a derogotory manner,he was the one who accused this
board and remember this ****?lol The Bujinkan for a supposed
attack on one of his men?What the hell is the point of this
lunatic.What Anthony and Osiris did is nothing more than saved
alot of people(mostly kids,and a few dillusional adults)the
pains of fraudulent corruption.They should be thanked,and not
corrected.Well done guys ;)

He just wants to be left alone to sell his books and do his thing. People are smart enough to chose what is right for them ,and what is fantasy and reality.
So you are saying that schools like his, Chung Moo Quan aka and other cult like schools are ok to have around as long as they are just "doing their thing" Do you realize that even in today's society, people are just not educated enough about martial arts outside of the movies. Now granted, I am sure he used the Asian name to sell more books, but his books are full of crap. It is one thing if he sold it with the "sucker born every minute" attitude, but this person believes the hype he writes. But I guess it is ok for him to con people.
I think 99.99% of martial arts and all things martial art related are a total joke, but think it is better to leave things alone unless someone asks your opinion, and put your efforts together for something positive.
You guys wasted a lot of time on this stunt, you could have been doing something MUCH more constructive.
Then why bother training? Why are you on this site. Did you not know what this site is about? Anthony and Osiris did exactly what they should have. They called out a coward's challenge. Now there is one less fraud out there getting away with his con. Perhaps you could tell us what "postive" contributions you have added. Sir Holier Than Thou.

DanielSainty - Did you read the title banner on this site. If it were not for actions like this then 99.9% of martial arts is a joke would be a true number. Then please tell us some of the .01 %dojo's that are not a joke , just to confirm you may have a clue......or perhaps you are a joke...
After reading Jekyll's threads I bring back an old sig.......
Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.

Ok,being a newbie I'm going to risk a certain
degree in this statement.I don't know about all
the teleportation crap this moron mentioned in
his books,or the fact he claimed to be Ninja
(OBVIOUSLY HE'S FULL OF ****,HIS CRAPPY,SLOPPY
TECHNIQUES SAY IT ALL).As far as the now schools
or modern rendition of American Ninjutsu is also
crap,If you see the instructor's in these so call-
ed dogo's you could swear they are more intune
with a quart of Hagen-daz or a dozen doughnuts.
The sad point to this story(and I'm sure they will
be some magor flahback on this)is the fact that
the once gracefull and secretive system is all
but extinct.If you ever looked at a video from
a home study course,book,or instructional manual
the techniques presented by these so called pro's
are done sloppy and wrong.Like all martial arts,
there are strenght and weaknesses it is these
money hungry fat slobs posing as masters that did
damage the art known as ninjutsu.It may seem a
fad or facilitation in the 80's,with their logo's
commercialism,and false propoganda but there is
very few limmited resources in the real
training left in this world.It still exists mainly
done as any martial art would be concieved.Real
training consists of full contact,dedication,
combat principles,and adjustments to perfect and
condition your art of choosing.Another point that
I find ignorent is the pronounciation and degree
of skill they pass off as the truth POINT GIVEN
YOU WILL NOT FIND REAL NINJUTSU IN A AMERICAN DOGO
AND CERTAINLY NOT FROM A VIDEO.The uniform is not
even the right design or region or for any matter
pattern,the true Shinobi Shozukuo did not have a
pointy hood like some delapitated kkk member nor
did it have straight legged design like a karate
gi.Another bullshit example of American Ninjutsu,
You ask them what an Obe or Zukin is they explain
that there is no such article Wrong!!! Obe was
a utility belt and Zukin was a cover for the head
and breath muffle.Ashida Kim,and so many other fat
asses ruined,and raped the art form too death.
Those of us that have the opportunity to be taught
and train within the boundries of the reality know
better.And for the record traditional,training
from a Japanese instructor(if you are lucky to
find one at all)would be best.Ego,greed,and ignorence is the killer of any martial arts.
My guns bigger than Scrapper's!

Do you know what happened to Ashida's message board?
Xiao Ao Jiang Hu Zhi Dong Fang Bu Bai (Laughing Proud Warrior Invinsible Asia) Emporer of Baji!!!
THE TRUE FIST OF THE NORTHSTAR!!
Xiao Ao Jiang Hu Zhi Dong Fang Bu Bai (Laughing Proud Warrior Invincible Asia) Dark Emperor of Baji!!!
Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

James Bennett said something about he needs a new server as the old one no longer complies wit his board?
You guys are making a big deal out of nothing. All of us here have probably read an AK book when we were younger. I have never seen AK give out any advice then go do your own thing. He doesnt teach classes, he just sells his books.
What did you guys accomplish? Nothing, you never gave him the 10k to fight him. He doesnt want to fight, he isnt going to put up another 10k.
I dont read his 10k challange as an open challange, I read it as being sick to death of being challanged 7 times a day, the guy is in his 50's.
Sure, his stuff might not be for you, or you could warn people against it if you feel strongly, that is great...
But what you did is just a cyber prank as far as I see it.
Take Hatsumi for example, who I find much more offensive in his bullshit. But he isnt online.
Jeremy, why bother training? I wont give you an essay on my personal reasons, lets just say it is an important part of my life.
Why am I on this message board? Well I agree that people doing web searches about schools, the bitching about them isnt my thing, but there still seem to be some people in here with their head screwed on, and the conversation is not limited to cyber hunters.
What contributions have I added to martial arts? I run the largest fight wear company in Australia, sponsor several fighters, hold sub grappling tournaments with cash prizes, write the biggest Australasian MMA magazine, and film, publish, and distribute MMA instructional DVD's in addition to teaching, and training full time.

You have your views. You weren't there. When confronted about his fighting skills or lack therof, he pointed us to his challenge page and insulted members about not having the money let alone the balls.
I have the money, I have the balls, I took up his challenge. But it wasn't one sided. I don't know who he is. He wants a real challenge match like the Gracies, who btw, was brought up during this time, great. Let's put some money up, I put up 5 to show I was ready, he couldn't.
Truth is his teaching, which he does do, and books are pure bullshido. Are you telling me, let him teach impressionable students that they can really look up at the sky, watch the horizon and be able to infiltrate any stronghold?
Are you that daft? It was 10grand each, winner take all. No bullshit. He backed out, privately and publicly. End of story.
For someone who deals with MMA and real fighting, you come across as a Ninja wannabe.
