    We prefer the term "white boy jiujitsu".

    Sure. Your concerns are valid though unnecessary, we have a strong sense of martial arts integrity. And no one I'm aware of in the gaijin ryu misrepresents themselves, up to and including the founder.

    Dude, that's fucking brilliant.

    Although I'm sure they know what Gaijin means and are hamming it up. Right? Right? Or is there another meaning I don't know about? Because I only watched "Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift" like twice or something.

    You don't think there's some cause for concern when your lead instructor, a guy claiming to hold an 8th dan recognised by 9 different organisations is the 'President of the World Combat Arts Federation' through whom, is willing to offer grade recognition and validation in exchange for $$$.

    Here's the exact text,

    WCAF members include high ranking Masters and Grandmasters in various styles and systems from around the world. This affords us the opportunity to rank individuals in many different martial arts.

    The WCAF website reads like a classic blackbelt circle-jerk.

    The WCAF will certify the rank of any member in their respective martial art. However, the member must show proof of current rank and pay the appropriate certification fees

    LOL.. you're HONESTLY telling me that as a staff member here at Bullshido, with all the various bullshit practises that's been highlighted and discussed here, and generally accepted as BULLSHIDO, you don't see a single comparable to those and what I've highlighted in this thread lifted directly from a website that your "Gaijin Ryu" founder is president of ?

    Thats fucking laughable and ironic.

    Just so I have this straight, exactly what accusation are you making at my instructor?

    Read my comments again.

    Read the website of WCAF and tell me that you genuinely feel its good practice to do what I've highlighted upon.
