Then do so. Until then please refrain from calling someone a fraud and follow the posting rules in MABS.
Just make sure that what you find actual, objective, verifiable, reasonable proof. And once you find it, present it in a reasonable, coherent manner. Thanks.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Here is more proof...

I hope that stuff helps out. I won't be posting much anymore, since I'm not really into the martial arts stuff anymore, but when I ran across this stuff, I had to add my two cents, experiences, etc. to warn other potential students.
I hope the links I posted help out.

One last thing. When I attended his school back in 1990 and 1992, he claimed to be a Green Beret. He never claimed to be a Navy Seal. Now I guess it appears he claims that too.
I only know one bona fide Navy Seal, and he attends my synagogue, and he doesn't go around bragging about it like Steve Bennest.
Fear and bullets.

I will look into this one. Do we have a local who can assist?
And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

When I attended his school, he had a Better Business Bureau placard in his window. However, when I search the BBB website, I find no record of his business.
Anyone can place a placard in their window, just like anyone can claim to be a Green Beret, or be trained by some secret Japanese master.
Here is a link to he Better Business Bureau
