    Which makes it all the more hilarious, given how Brinn keeps on yammering about how "effective" he is at training and how good his guys are gonna be. Not only that, but you'd think the big thing they'd be selling an MMA gym on through video would be... y'know.. fighting maybe? Like real sparring and alive work, instead of the sloppy tae-bo Brinn had them all doing?
    Soke Brinn doesn't believe in aliveness, if you remember. His training philosophy is based upon scientifically proven scientific research which was carried out scientifically by US military scientists.

    Not entirely sure if this is worth necro-ing the thread for (feel free to move, mods) but I thought I'd have a look to see what Brinn was up to these days. Found this.

    http://www.livesafeproducts.com/livesafebusiness/

    "How to make 8 times the income and teach the martial art you love."

    "You'll See Immediate Results... guaranteed, or your money back!"

    Dear Friend,

    If you'd like to earn 8 times more income, teaching what you love and have the most fun ever doing it, then this might be the most important letter you'll ever read.
    Here's why:

    We can teach you how to get more students instantly, make more money per student and even how to keep them paying you long after they have left!"
    Now, I know you're probably skeptical. That's normal and healthy. Let me give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

    Three Reasons To Believe What I Say

    Reason one: Some of the biggest names in the Martial Arts have hired us to personally help them!
    Reason two: We have shown instructors just like you how to turn their schools around and make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year doing what they love while still teaching what they want!
    Reason three: Survey after survey shows that we not only know what your potential students want but we know how to get them to sign up and pay the minute they are given the opprotunity to!
    ...and so on.


    Reading between the lines, it looks to me as though Brinn is offering to share with his customers the revolutionary and ground-breaking secret of how to sign people up for long-term contracts as soon as they walk through the doors of the dojo... :eusa_thin


    Now, this is the sort of thing that if I'd received by email, I'd immediately delete as spam - yaknow, all the usual vague, unsubstantiated claims backed up by red text, yellow highlighting, bold text, exclamation marks, promises of free stuff, special one-time prices and anonymous testimonials (could be for deadly streetfighting secrets DVDs, guides on how to hack fruit machines, penis pills, dubious acai berry products, lottery schemes, muscle growth formulas, make money fast programmes - they all seem to read and be presented in pretty much the same manner) - I'm sure that anyone who's been around the internet for a reasonable period of time knows the drill by now. Anyway, that's beside the point - just a personal observation. Though Jason might want to tweak his language and the manner in which his sales pitch is displayed so as not to come across like some Billy Mays-type guy in a dodgy late night informercial.


    Anyhow, there's also this:
    http://www.livesafeproducts.com/livesafeuniversity/

    Looks like a placeholder page at present, but I'm wondering if this is going to be something like Gracie University - but with Brinnjutsu.

    Unless JB really *is* founding his own university. Now that would be something...

    Personally, I'd like to see a list of these 'biggest names in the Martial Arts' that the Brinnwerk has helped.

    Also, list of instructors who make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year thanks to Brinn's system, please.

    Heh, has this thing even been running for a year (NC guys heard anything?)? It certainly wasn't mentioned online at this time last year. Or even in March this year, when this thread was last updated prior to yesterday...
