We know the name of Bobby Joe Blythe's dojo. We also know some possible dates it was open. This was more than likely some kind of incorporated business. Has anyone considered contacting the state of Virginia's Secretary of State office and doing a records search? They are fairly easy to do:

Sadly I have not received a single reply, concern, care or effort from these houses of worship to enter this forum and reply in any way shape or manner to date helping identify who "KFG" may be.
We are going to try to contact a couple of the unnamed witnesses. If they don't want to talk to us we will consider putting their names up.
I've spoken on the phone on the admin of justice4kungfuguy.com and we are going to combine our efforts and coalesce the sites into one. His site is obviously way better but needs to have a better focus on victim identification and push the flier I've made.
Also, reminder to mods to please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the distribution list.
I started to put together a list of addresses, fax and e-mail addresses for local churches. Do not rely solely on e-mail, we must assume that the person who has the information we need is not online. The flier needs to be both faxed and mailed to every church and organization we can identify within the locality.
This is all I have time for right now, and is without blowing up the audio volume on KFG. I have skipped parts that I was sure were transcribed accurately enough. If you listen to what KFG actually says, it lends some insights that are either missed or not in keeping with discussion. Example: it's significant that he says "Jesus Christ" in the formal way he does, and that he says "whatsoever" [instead of "or swear"], as both are indicators of potentially his particular religious background and education.
The bolding is to indicate places where corrections should probably be made to the existing transcript, in some places where transcript as is leads the reader to inaccurate perception of events in the video.
Please feel free to interweave this with the existing transcript. I may do it later or not. Depends on whether WW owns up completely to being a total D&D, tinfoil nerd. :O
Edit: broham, I trane UFC. Watch yourself.
[Attempting to interject while Blythe speaks:]
Could I...could I...[inaudible, talked over by Blythe]...uh...I just...need to say that...uh....I am a Shindukan ["kan" trailing off, spelling phonetic]...priest...
Blythe: You're a what?
KFG: Shintukan [phonetic] priest.
Blythe: Shin-doo-kan priest?
KFG: Shintu...shintu...shintukan .
Blythe: ...uh...he has no master....
KFG [interjecting]: My master is Jesus Christ.
KFG [interjecting]: Well...as far as the tiger is concerned...[garbled, possibly "in karate"]...the tiger is [garbled, possibly "a term" or "the term"]...this is [unclear, possibly "a symbol" or "the symbol"] of Jesus Christ...
Blythe [talking over, and in between, nodding]: Okay.... Okay....
KFG [pointing at own elbow]: Here...is the tiger.
Blythe interjects, continues.
Blythe: Annnd, who'd you say promoted you to tenth degree red belt?
KFG: [partially inaudible, but from his response to Blythe afterward, probably "Jesus."]
Blythe [pointing]: Juh- ...Jesus did.
KFG [nodding]: Uh-huh. [Continues nodding.]
Blythe: ...because I guarantee you...that's gotta be some movements to with- [turns to KFG] to behold. Right?
KFG: Well, I won't brag [bolding mine, emph in original] or anything of that nature, but I can demon[-garbled audio, end of statement missing]
Blythe [gesturing that the floor is KFG's, walking toward camera, away from KFG and Dennis]: Go ahead 'n demonstrate [bolding mine] around him.
KFG: Okay. [to Dennis, pointing toward Dennis's feet with open hand] If you can just stand there, and not make any movements whatsoever [bolding mine, audio possibly indistinct here, momentarily]...I will not...touch you. ["If" possibly inaudible] you could just.... Well, actually, I- I think it would be best, maybe, perhaps, if I just...performed...what is known in karate as...[bolding mine] uh...kata?

^^^ that portion in particular seems not to have been understood by many of the people "debating" KFG's background.
p.s. it's significant that the first time KFG says "Shindukan" the "kan" part disappears. He only repeats the "kan" part firmly after Blythe reiterates it loudly. To place emphasis on this word could very well be a mistake, as the uncertain pronunciation by KFG, the first time, could point to the word being made up, or uncertainty about it on KFG's part.
