    Haven't heard of it before man, but wow, that place looks absolutely ridiculous. "Sensei Doug" doesnt mention whom he trained under, where, etc. Both Jiu Jitsu and Ninjitsu have lineages that are easily traceable. Additionally, few people train in Sanda, so you should be able to "dig" a little further on that one as well. If you're set on studying here, I'd at least ask for some additional background info. Just my thoughts though . . .

    This guy is adverstising all over the place, even craigslist. A buddy of mine and I were thinking of checking him out for shits and giggles. I mean I won't knock someone for training people in their garage/basement where ever. The only mention he makes on his site of who may have trained him is in a caption to the picture of his "weapons master" Ronald Bryhan. Maybe someone can dig something up on him.

    Let me know how it is if you go. I trained in a basement school years ago, it was real old school stuff. No BS there. Sten

    Well Howard Popkin has a school in West Hempstead NY.
    His titles:
    Yondan - Jun Dairi Kyoju - Daito ryu Aikijujutsu Roppokai
    Yondan - 4th Degree Black Belt - Vobindinh HTM World Martial Arts
    Shodan - 1st Degree Black Belt - Goshin Budo Jujitsu

    Unless my Google-Fu is weak I cannot find any of the other names listed.

    I found Darel Chase, it is Aiki Ryu JiuJitsu, and I think Master Lan was with Hatsumi, I may be wrong.

    Judging from the name, I would suspect that Mukashi no Jutsu is not terribly mukashi.
    Maybe someone with better Japanese can correct me, but I'm pretty sure "mukashi" is never used as a modifier; I've only ever heard it as a part of storytelling language, as "mukashi mukashi ni"... (the equivalent of "Once upon a time....")
    Regardless of what he's teaching, I'm calling shenanigans on the name.

    sten,

    It looks like a pretty small school, so it is unlikely anyone here knows anything specific about it. From the one video on their website, it looks pretty lousy, but that is just a video. You'll need to go there in person and check it out.

    If you are new to Bullshido, you should know we advice people to seek out schools that train in an "alive" manner. See this series of videos:

    YouTube - Words of Wisdom PT 1

    That link is to part 1. There are six parts that can be found in the sidebar if you click through to YouTube.
