    We did not review Mr Tripp's school, there were some questions about his credentials that were quickly handled. However since that time Mr. Tripp has amply demonstrated his abilities by holding seminars which were attended by several Bullshido members.

    There are 3 components to every investigation, Truth in lineage, teaching ability, and fighting ability. We have found people who have completely true and correct lineage who can't fight or teach worth crap, we've found great fighters with no lineage or inflated lineage, we've found great teachers who can't fight worth crap, etc... etc...

    The whole point is to get as much information available to the interested consumer as possible. If someone knows your lineage is the truth then they know you are honest, if they see evidence of you or your students competing then they can get an idea of the relative effectiveness of what you are teaching.
    This helps narrow down the choices of which schools to visit in person. It's always better when people are cooperative, and I never understand why they aren't. If you are running a good school, that teaches good material that is effective then why wouldn't you want to spread that information around?

    Sten,

    Now that you are back in the conversation. Where is Gregor located, US, Russia, Japan? Is this is your instructors full name or just what he used around everyone? For example, my first name is Stephen but everyone in my family, coaches, bosses and instructors calls by my middle name Chad.

    I am having trouble trying to locate this gentleman and maybe if you want to start being honest you can at least give everyone a "barrel" to look in.

    Kintanon,
    I am not trying to be dishonest.
    Neither my students nor myself enter competitions for points or any other organized matches. The techniques we employ are usually applied with atemi ,although not all of them. They are rather difficult to apply in a mock match and the subtlties are difficult to judge when they aren't applied fully. We do train occasionally with another school. There is a partial list of some techniques on my website. I have invited people down to my class to see for themselves. But again, I did not start this thing so that people could see my abilities. I wanted to see a fairer ,more polite treatment of teachers/styles. If you want to judge my abilities,my address is on the website or email me. i am not interested in a huge amount of students or nationwide recognition. I prefer that the techniques stay with my small group. Thank You. Doug

    I will not assist someone that calls me a douchebag and other insults. You see, if someone said that to my face, I would certainly not still be conversing with them, and they would,t be conversing back with no teeth. Proving the point yey again, that some people will post things without thinking what they are doing. Would you answer someone that insulted you?

    My life has been threatened on this forum and yet I still respond. Now would you PLEASE respond to my previous posts?

    No, you started it as an expose. You didn't bother to look at other threads where instructors are treated fairly.

    Interesting. So, when a simple answer would suffice, you would resort to violence?

    Wow. That negates some of the things you said earlier.

    Oh, I mean that negatively.

    Our process is BLINDINGLY fair. It requires that people prove their claims. You, as a martial arts instructor, are claiming that you can and do teach people to defend themselves. For that reason we request proof that 1. you are qualified to teach the techniques, and 2. that the techniques are effective under pressure in a non-compliant situation.
    These two things are VERY easy to demonstrate. Present your lineage with references. Video you or one of your students in a non-compliant setting using the techniques under pressure.

    See? Simple.

    So, you don't like being called an ass when you are acting like one. I make no bones about it, I don't like you and yet here I have been wasting my money trying to help you out. Apparently you think we take it as a LOL, we don't. I took vacation time from work for another investigation and you bitch about being called a douche when that is how you are acting.

    **** you then. Either prove your linage or shut the **** up. If I was in new York I would say this to your face but since I live here in Texas this board would have to suffice. It has now gone way past the time of put up or shut up.

    I think this should be moved to YMAS. All we get is a lying advertisement of a school, the dropping of names, involving innocent parties and page long posts of justifying these actions. After all that no question is getting answered from the person complaining about persecution.
