    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Frank Cucci

    It's come to my attention that some people believe Cucci to be a proponent of Bullshido. They think his Navy SEAL accomplishments are a fabrication and that he makes bold claims about what he can teach.

    I believe that his claims about teaching Navy SEALS is true, there isn't a real reason to believe otherwise. But I'm willing to be proven wrong.

    The claims that are made on advertisements for videos are not written by Cucci, but by advertisers. They are not his claims.

    Here are reasons why Cucci is a legitimate and good instructor of martial arts.

    1. He's full instructor under Dan Inosanto for many years.
    2. He's full instructor under Master Chai for many years.
    3. He's a black belt instructor under Rickson Gracie.

    So I don't have to repeat myself:

    http://bullshido.net/forums/showpost...8&postcount=38
    http://bullshido.net/forums/showpost...5&postcount=93

    And there are many people out there who are skilled martial artists and have a reputable background but decide to cash in on using as much marketing as they can, even if it is full of ****.

    You make lots of accusations, but provide little evidence to substantiate your claims.

    Bushi is correct

    Cucci is under Sauer. (who is under Rickson)

    I trained under Frank Cucci and his boys like TBK. All I know is his facility in VA Beach is top notch, his fighters are skilled, and his contracts are a year long. It was 80$ a month when I went back in 97-99. Good stuff. Bullshido? No not the Linxx Academy.

    Is it so hard to find out if somebody actually taught Navy Seals? Doesn't the Navy care their name is getting used so much?

    No, because it's still press for them. Reinforces their poster image of the ultimate uberkommando death killing machines.

    It's more his RBSD and "d34dly SEAL combat" videos. I'm sure he has a good school as he has some good creds, it's just he advertises some of his videos using the same tired old RBSD cliches. C.J. Caracci is someone who has actually trained a lot of SEALs, he's the creator of many of those SEAL Workout videos and police tactic/self-defense videos sold all over the place and worked with Richard Marcinko in SOS Temps for a while. Chuck Habermehl has as well too. Check out the official SOCOM store: http://navyseals.zoovy.com/category/3/ If he really was the Chief Instructor of NSW Close Combat, wouldn't his videos be portrayed there as well?
