    Stephane D'Amour just replaced the Kanata dude recently. I expect that Stepahne D'Amoujust might want to post about his recent ousting. According to "M" Stephane didn't cut it, even though he was installed by his highness himself.

    "M"'s quote goes, "If those high standards of vision, loyalty, minimum hours on the mat, dedication, character, leadership, team spirit, personality, core values are not met, the Owner is replaced by a more suitable one."

    This was all said about you, Stephane. I count nine allegations aimed at you, Stephane, with no "or"s dividing them.

    Stephane D'Amour , I assume you follow this forum. Do you have ant insights about fsd's method of management that you could share that won't involve you a trip to your lawyer? Are you still associated with fsd? Was this a shake and bake to blast and burn you out fast, or was in all cordial with handshakes all around?

    Stephane D has been an outspoken Fanger and promoter of FSD through and through for a hell of a long time, I hope he's ok.

    I have a lot of trouble believing this is about his training or dedication. He always had that in spades.

    I agree that his fsd loyalty has been described as substantial. IMHO the language "M" used in his blog post to describe the reasons for the change would be unnecessary if things were all wine and roses.
    --------
    Currently fsd does not list an Instructor for Arnprior.
    --------
    The Kanata location lists stephane patenaude, Scott Hill, and Mike Klassen as instructors. Mike is not described as a sifu in the listing.
    ---------
    Other stupid number stuff:
    - 17 names are listed in total as instructors, at a total of 24 locations. (Why, that works out to .708 instructors per school!)
    - Dan Lavac is listed without the sifu title at the Bellville location, as is Kyle Buck in Toronto.
    - Scott Hill has his name listed at 4 locations. That's more than any of the patenaude clan.
    - Patrick Marcil is tied with stephane and Brian Paquette with their names tied to 3 locations each.

    looks like the signs are changed at the Kanata location Mixed Martial Arts and fitness center.
    Are they changing the name or is the owner starting something new?

    Crap! I'm beginning to feel like Kreskin! Name change and "system" change ;;) would seem the only "logical" thing for fsd to do. How dumb and naive are they! Wait, let me phrase that as a question.

    This thread is still going? Holy crap!
    FSD is clearly still trying to find an identity... and still up to it's tricks. Well, enough to keep this thread going ad infinitum!
    Perhaps you've sullied the name enough that the change in signage was to disguise any links to FSD? Like a covert FSD location.

    Well FSD has been through several name changes already, so that's not too surprising, but unless they've taken his lease, Stephane still has the space, and may have loyal students, so maybe he's going to take a stab at making it on his own. Either way's possible, we'll have to see how it plays out.
