    KUPSO?

    There's a KUPSO club near me. I'd never come across it before. The search function on this site gets no matches, wikipedia has nothing and a google search brings up club home pages mainly in Scotland.
    Anyone know more about it?

    It looks pretty stupid, and associating with bunk like reiki doesn't help.

    Ao Denkou Jitsu sounds made-up.

    Hi guys
    Kupso is a hybrid MMA club teaching the knowledge from various different systems, addressing the real life scenarios but also the sport side of it. Kupso comes from korean for pressure point and is a federation long established in UK by its founder Allan Buchan who few years ago emigrated to Australia. He is the high dan holder of various styles including Jiu-Jitsu (Ao-Denkou-Jitsu is a sub-style focusing on a use of pressure points within jiu-jitsu), Tae-kwan-do, Chun-do-kwan, Tai-Chi. Kung Fu etc etc . Allan Buchan is also a long time practitioner of various stiles of Penjak Silat which is quite comprehensive by itself.
    I used to be his sudent in Scotland and he is a good teacher and person. Don't miss an oportunity to meet him and study under him. Greetings from Edinburgh!

    Adds up to RUN AWAY, don't train here. I'm sure you can find better training.

    Also, Who are some professional fighters out of this MMA club that fight under an MMA Ruleset? Fight Records? Videos of competition?

    Thanks for joining. Can you please give us some information as to any grappling and/or MMA competitions your students have entered, and (even better) where we might find video of them fighting/competing?

    Sounds kind of Dillmanesque, doesn't it???

    What high dan ranks and in which systems does Mr. Buchan hold, and who trained & ranked him?
