    its a very bad pun.

    McMaster=Makamasuta

    Which is quite ironic as at here:

    http://www.combative-arts.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=190

    he states

    There is nothing wrong with naming a martial arts after it's founder. I would personally not do it because it seems a bit pretentious, and after all i don't live in an age where a warrior class is permitted legally.

    Hey, Der... you speak Taekwondo, right?
    Combative Taekwondo?
    Combative Taekwondo is a system designed specifically to introduce children and adults to the world of martial arts, taught in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
    Designed as a comprehensive system of sport and self-defence the system of Combative Taekwondo is built around the principles of fitness, health, self-defence, sporting ability, a syllabus based instruction in martial arts and a structured ranking system.
    Combative Taekwondo is designed around an open accessibility and de-mystifying of the sport and self-defence aspects of martial arts.
    The system is based around popular Taekwondo techniques, and is heavily influenced by aspects of Karate, Ju Jutsu, Thai Boxing and some aspects of modern Bu Jutsu.
    Combative Taekwondo was originally created around a Taekwondo Chung Do Kwan syllabus heavily influenced and adapted with techniques drawn from other styles. The current syllabus has been developed by Grant McMaster Renshi with aid and advice from his team of Dan grades. It has been ratified as a cohesive syllabus by Grand Master Dr. Frederick Lee and by Shihan Tim White.
    Does that sound like utter bollocks, or am I missing a nuance that only a trained... ummm... wandering monk might notice?

    Utter bollocks. Complete utter bollocks.

    And I mean that in the Zen sense.

    Irony that you mention wandering monk, since I am on a Greyhound bus in Michigan, wearing formal robes.

    See, an authority on Korean arts calls bullshit on the guy.
    Thanks :-)

    Yup. I'm checking my Bumper Book Of Zen Koans and it's on page 108, amazingly.

    You're Errant, in every sense of the word, of course you're off wandering.

    Yes. Or maybe the waxed Ewok Sensei Jedi Warrior Master. As long as you supply video evidence of course

    ***Edit. Tastefully edited of course, I do not want to see a sack and crack wax on an Ewok

    I found much of this post on his forums very confusing..

    http://www.combative-arts.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=100&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start =15

    Instructors in the UK are allowed to grade students from the time they receive their 1st dan, but only to two grades below their current grade. So in the styles where I hold a 3rd dan I am entitled to, and have awarded 1st dan qualifications.

    Within my own Bu Jutsu style I am the originator of the style although I had my grade recognised by a 9th dan to make it legitimate. Technically I can grade to 1st Dan in that style as well although I also use something called Menkyo certificates, which are the original method that Japanese Ryu graded their students, and I am entitled to issue any grade of certificate.

    My next grades in Combative Taekwondo & Genkotsu Koppo Bu Jutsu will be interesting. I receive the Bu Jutsu Yondan automatically if I want to, which is good because there are only a few people who I would go to for grading in Bu Jutsu although I will probably organise a grading with a suitable governing body.
    The Master Grade in the Taekwondo will be interesting as I have already been offered it and turned it down once. I am even considering changing the style completely to Karate by grading to 4th in Freestyle Karate but I havenít completely decided upon this.

    Attitude plays a large part of grading requirements in my students, as does past endeavour and achievement. But at higher grade I agree that it is an equal mix of attitude and technique. Our initial Dan grades tend to be 3-4 hour examinations which are exhausting both physically and mentally and involve a lot of randori as well as multiple attacker work.
    After 1st Dan then we look for how the student has personalised the style and whether he is teaching the style correctly to unranked grades. General and specific knowledge of the martial arts is also required as we have an academic requirement in the form of an essay for every rank.



    ***Highlights added by me.

    Can anyone explain how he can go from 4th Dan Combative TKD, hold a 1st Dan Shotokan(which he says he never graded in) and come up with 4th Dan freestyle Karate?)
