    Their Judo instructor seems to be someone called Rootman Kujah, 2nd degree black belt, former world champion.

    My Google-fu gave out some musicians, but no judoka.

    No, the padwork is definitely beyond terrible. Clearly no one is even teaching anyone there how to hold pads. Who holds for kicks by stacking the pads over top one another?

    Interesting that the Judo teacher is a new addition to her site. We really need to screen cap her site as it may change more.

    If he is a judo world champ, that should be easy to confirm with USA Judo.

    The hilarious thing is that Kujah Rootman is the name of a Tuscon based Rastafarian hip hop band, and not a person at all. I suspect the artist behind the music is a member (or staff member) of the Afro-Brazilian cultural center that hosts this "MT" trainwreck.

    Notice that there is someone named "Kru Roxy Lopez" in the instructors section of the site. Recall fitness trainer Ron Lopez's claim that Roxy was a "champion".

    Steve, I hope your screenshot request means you already did it ;)

    JudoInside has a comprehensive database of international Judo results for as long as there has been such thing. Needless to say no such person appears in their records.

    Did you check for Reggae bands that may have played GB gigs at one world championship or another? Coud be an "honest mistake".

    Not that this is saying anything positive about Roxy's school but I've seen worse at "legit" gyms.

    I am just wondering how anyone could take a class from her and believe that they were learning a system that actually worked. It would only take one youtube search of "muay Thai" to call Roxy's "technique" into question. Common sense doesnt seem to be part of the curriculum.

    Has anyone sent a letter to her since the "elitekrue" user came and offered some vague, sensless explanations?

    Simple:
    she "owns" or "appears to own" a school and she doesn't seem to be catering to much beyond the hobbyist crowd. She knows enough or appears to know enough to make the most inexperienced new student comfortable with her perceived expertise.
