- The organization which was referenced in the original post (the one which may very well be owned by Brock) is no longer in existence. Or at least the website no longer is.
- I found this from 2003:
For those too lazy to scroll to 9-10-03, it says (copied directly from the site):
"My name is Walt Bushey and I am the President of KIAI ( http://kiai.dzaba.com/ <http://kiai.dzaba.com/> ), an organization seemingly verifying the background details of a person in an article in your paper. I hold the rank of Okuden Menkyo in Bujutsu (traditional samurai weapons and combative skills) under Kuniaki Senyo sensei ( http://katsujin.org/KGBR.htm <http://katsujin.org/KGBR.htm> ) and I represent Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu and the Komei Jyuku of Sekiguchi Komei sensei (21st inheritor of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu ) here in Texas ( www.katsujin.org <http://www.katsujin.org> - bukijutsu page) .
I read an article in your paper about a young boy from your town entitled, ?Garnett youth tops in nation in the world of martial arts? dated Wed. July 30, 2003. This article claims that a martial art federation called KIAI is responsible for registering this young boy and his father, one Brock Moody, as a ?sensei? of martial arts. While I applaud the efforts of one so young and in no way wish to diminish his accomplishments, in this article, Mr. Moody made many fanciful claims in regards to this organization called KIAI and in regards to himself in relation to KIAI. I have been the president of KIAI (Kenjutsu International Association of Instructors) for several years now and was appointed to the position of President by the founder of KIAI, Dr. Ivica Zdravkovic of Pozarevac, Serbia ( firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> ). We do keep records of traditional nihon (japanese) budo sensei all over the world. ( Our KIAI web site can confirm this.) This man (and thusly his son) have never been registed by our KIAI or any known or registerd organization using that acronym. The ĎAdvocate? article claims that, Brock Moody, has been listed as the youngest sensei in America for more than twenty years by the ?KIAI martial arts federation?. I have checked with every contactable budo organization still in existence from the year 1946 (the year the first budo organization in the U.S., the? USKA ? was founded by Robert Trias) to now that has ever used the word or acronym KIAI in itís title with a listing online and those organizations not online with a contact telephone no. or recorded mention in the ? Complete Martial Arts Catalogue of Records, Titles and Organizations ? ( authored by John Corcoran and Emil Farkas ISBN 0-671-22668-1) . None of the organizations I have contacted have ever heard of Brock Moody or anything called the ?yen academy?. (Yen is the japanese word for money). There is no evidence of the legitmate existence of ? 20 year old record books? or ?Yen academy sensei exams? liscensed by KIAI or any recorded organization using the acronym ?KIAI? or word ?KIAI? in itís title anywhere in the last 57 years. If Mr. Moody has any legitimate records backing his statements or verification by legitimate organizations of any of his claims, I invite him to make this verifiable information public to clear this up and prove his statements, or to stop using the legitimate name of KIAI for his unverfiable claims.

When you put in his name in Google, this thread still comes up first.
You thinking he is trying to pull the old name switcherooo to draw attention away from him and his school?

Which must be why his profile just has him listed as "Sensei". And he's attained the coveted rank of "the boss".
Though I don't know why he prefers weapons owned by some dude named Sai.

Since he has changed the name of his site(for whatever reason), I decided to email Mr Moody and some of his cohorts in an attempt to get some answers to a few questions. I have not received any response from Mr. Moody, but I did from one of his assistant instructors. Posted is my email and the response I received.
Hello, I saw on your website that you are located in Garnett, KS, I am in Osawatomie. I had a few questions for Mr. Moody and wanted to make sure that I got through to somone. What is Mr. Moody's lineage? With whom did he train and earn rank? How many years did Mr. Moody train before he received his 1st degree black belt? What styles does Mr. Moody teach? Is it just jujitsu? Is it Aiki-jujitsu? Which Ryu-ha did he receive his rank from?
Thank you for your assistance,
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, I am fighting a very busy schedule. I started jujitsu under Sensei Moody a few years ago, and I absolutely love it. It has become a way of life for me. It is Aiki Jujitsu, providing students to learn not only jujitsu, but knowledge in many different art forms. Sensei Moody has studied a wide variety of different arts, and brings first-hand knowledge of each to the table. If you are truly interested in studying an art, I would strongly recommend this one. You won't be limited by katas here, you will be encouraged to develop your own style: accenting your strengths, improving your weaknesses, and completely free in form.
I would invite you to join us on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. It may help you get a feel for what Sensei is all about, that is how I got started. In fact, I am so happy and content with the program that I have never inquired as to lineage or things of that nature. I've realized that aspect of martial arts has become an over-emphasized and non-relevant factor in my study of the arts. Many dojos will promote lineage as a means of drawing business, and you may find that they aren't as open to the development of free form fighting within each individual.
Once again, I invite you to join us either as a participant or observer. Studying the martial arts is a very rewarding life activity, and selection of a place to study is a key part of the process for the individual .
I hope this helps answer some questions, and if I can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me. Good luck in your quest to study, you will be glad you did.
Hope to see you Wednesday!

I just watched the videos on that dudes site and I know i've been out of the MA circle for a number of years, but as a TKDer I have to say those kicks are horriffic. I hope none of those people get into a real fight because they'll be owned quickley and probably hurt.

Funny, my name is NOT Cody Stackhouse. And I don't look like that. I am not sure who that is, but OK. I did not say anything about his or any of the other guys' service records. And I made my comments concerning my own experience with his fighters and my concerns with what seems to be his self promotion in rank.
PS- I have never been on fubar.com and I do not have a handle of stack42.
And it is LOSER, not LOOSER!!!
