I note with some interest a number of discussions relating to Mr. Delane and his martial arts on a consumer advocacy website - www. bullshido.net
Having read these discussions there appears to be some discord amongst many established martial artists who have similarly read the threads. (Myself included)
I would be most pleased if you would consider joining the discussion and offering your opinion and clarifying the points which appear to be causing concern.
There are three discussions specific to Mr. Delaney and his martial arts however I draw you specifically to this : http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=87064 as I’ve requested a moderator for the site to eventually merge all three threads in to one for clarity.

What professional qualifications and experience has Mr. Delane (or his instructors) have to enable him to deliver this type of training ? Is this training delivered to members of the public, Security companies or other agencies ?
Would Mr. Delane or any of his senior representatives care to comment on the content of the 'statement' issued by his organisations former "number 2" ?

Further points requiring clarification
Why does Mr. Delane go by this pseudonym ?
The Bushido Academy of Martial Arts is a totally independent governing body that was founded in 1979 by experienced British Martial Artist Pete Delane. At that time he was a regional instructor with the Za Zen Karate Association holding a 3rd Dan in Zen Shin Ryu Karate and a 5th Dan in Oriental weapons. These grades were held in addition to several “Dan” grades that he had been previously been awarded by other MA political bodies (MAC, BKA, AKA).
Pete Delane has also achieved the highest possible grade (in the B.A.M.A.) of 7th Dan.
How has Mr. Delane achieved the rank of 7th dan in an organisation he himself created teaching martial systems he has invented ?
Which institution granted the rank of 5th dan in "Oriental weapons" ?

The hood mentality is crippling disease, that attacks your nervous system. It makes you nervous of the system. Gangsters and hood rats are especially susceptible to this growth stunting mentality.

Investigations take time. Some take years. Do not bump threads with innocuous comments. When the information arrives, it will be posted.

They've launched a 'new' organisation, trying to distance themselves from the tainted name of the BAMA I assume. Same old...

And another two:
They're obviously feeling the pressure.
Just waiting for the paperboy.

I wanted to save this creepyness for prosterity.
It's a huge red flag when any sort of training is suposed to be done in a ' intimate and private' environement, that's how cults do it too: feeding their victims bullshit and try to keep it tucked away and try to convince their students not to talk about it with 'outsiders'.
it's harmfull and fraudulant.
