Thanks for contacting me about Sensei Blythe. Unfortunately he is no longer in Virginia and has retired from teaching martial arts. I have a dojo in West Virginia about a 90 minute drive from Fredericksburg, and you are welcome to come up and train with us.
William J. Dennis (the BB) is located in Deerfield Beach, Florida, US. Perhaps those nearby news outlets should be notified.
Didn't mean to imply that we should track the victim down, poor choice of wording on my part. I apologize.

I have been asked to invite you to give your side of the matter.

If it would have took longer, I would have dropped both. This upset me it took so look. I was very disappointed with my guy and he paid for a week after that. That video will be coming up soon. That video will have the name....Fight for Life. That one will be good.
Let's distinguish between Dennis (the BB) and Blythe (the Sensei and YT poster). Blythe is the one who is being snyde and unrepentant. Not Dennis.

If what Mr Blythe wrote was true, then the police found a severely injured man in a dumpster behind his dojo and failed to investigate how he got there.
Of course Mr Blythe could be lying. I really don't know. However his claims do paint his local police in a very poor light.
Personally I think it's important that the press / media get hold of this so that a proper criminal investigation into the assault has to happen. Also, if appropriate, an investigation into the failure of the local police to investigate the crime when it happened.
Also, one of Mr Blythe's senior instructors, who managed his dojo until 1984 is currently an instructor who specializes in working with special needs kids. He proudly displays a page honouring Mr Blythe on his website. I feel concerned about that.
