I sent the following to the contact section on the Mukashi website:
I will post any response I get here.
This message is to Sensei DeRenzo.
Dear Sensei DeRenzo,
This is in reference to a recent controversy on Bullshido.net, where a poster named "sten" on the board is claiming to be you. I am writing to verify whether or not you are indeed the person posting as "sten".
The thread can be found here:
Thank you for your time,
Oh trust me I know this, why do you think I never posted those links? Apparently, he wants an investigation. I know both of those website are his or linked to him in a personal way.
Notice that both of those are his resumes for his other positions. The evidence points towards the position of "president of SCAA" having very little to do with real fact-checking and being mostly resume-padding for Mr DeRenzo.
There is more but, I'm waiting to see if this is the real Derenzo.
I guess this , Uncle Skippy, is not an insult to my art? My training methodologies are criticised here,when no one has even seen them. Check out some other comments, I won't bother to quote all of them, just take a look . i started this thread where I did because I am not a regular poster here for the reasons I have already mentioned. None of this really matters of course, I will continue to teach a great art and people here will continue to try and validate there reason for being here as the"overseers" of the martial arts world. It was a fun experiment. I listed some phony credentials as part of the test. Still rolling from the Master P.Lan reference. I wonder how many of you searched for him. If ever in NY, drop in and visit.

So, sten is indeed Mr. Derenzo.
Jeffrey, I am indeed Doug. Good to see some follow up. Thanks.
I get the impression this might be SEO related. A cheap way to get web traffic, fast. The more people click, the higher his page rating.

I like how he considers this a successful experiment.
He drew in an innocent person.
He threw multiple named schools under the bus, trying to prove a point.
He calls himself Sensei Doug.
Follow up? Mr. Popkins shows up, U.S. showed he has nothing to do with the guy, and the thread was done.
What part of this don't you understand?
You were so arrogant you started a thread about yourself.
You lied about the email.
You lied about Mr. Popkins.
You lied about wanting to join the school.
You lied about names.
Even through all of the lies, your art wasn't insulted, nor was it called fraudulent.
Yet, you are now a proven liar.
You came to this site. You lied about your training. You did not train jiu-jitsu under Howard Popkin, but you still made that claim. Master P. Lan? You padded your resume with bullshido before you even came on here to perform your little "experiment". Why are you so surprised that we called bullshido on you?? You are the definition of Bullshido.

And you wonder why I'm not interested in having an intelligent debate with you...
Did you even study Jujutsu under anyone? Or did you just read a few books on the topic?
Bingo! I can't imagine anybody knocking on the door of your "dojo" after reading this thread. Nice going champ!

Do you not understand what transpired here? I will explain it for you. I "pretended " to be a person looking for info on a school. I masquaraded as another person, as you do with the "It is Fake ' moniker. I actually train with John Yuan. I trained with Master Bryhan. What multiple named schools?The other names were ruses for BS "investigators" to discover. How would you have conducted this experiment? I see Bullshido does not like its own medicine. It is easy to sit at a laptop and invite anyone to comment about a school.I would like to see the majority of posters try to teach. The point of this exercise was to see if anyone would contact me to see for themselves or at least to discuss things. Instead all I received was the rude, unfounded comments and insults from people all over the country and world. I am not offended by the comments,as they have no base in fact. I just proved the point that The Martialist made. Perhaps if I was a paid advertiser here, I would get favorable comments. And how do you say the art wasn't insulted, "the sparring sucks, no methodologies, the name of the school is wrong, my students stances are wrong," etc etc etc. Think before you type. Is this your day job Fake?
The fact that your teachings are inadequate is self evident in your own video, why would anyone need to talk to you to confirm that?
