    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    (school now Closed)Shihan Doug Carducci, Sasori MMA Academy

    Well my roommate's fiance is friends with this guy and is considering attending his school, but his website is throwing up some serious red flags for me. From what I can tell, this guy is a blackbelt in ninjutsu only.

    Website: http://www.sasoridojo.com/

    Red Flag #1
    Ranking system http://web.sasoridojo.com/rankingsystem
    White, blue, purple, brown, black... sound familiar?

    Red flag #2
    This picture
    Notice that red stripe on his belt?

    Red flag #3
    YouTube- Sasori Academy Submissons - Triangle Leg Choke From Guard

    Red flag #4
    YouTube- Sasori Academy Submissions - Hip Throw

    Red flag #5
    YouTube- Sasori Academy Action Video

    Something about this just ruffles my feathers for some reason, what's your opinion?

    Well, there is someone with a very strange side part in his videos, which is also a definite red flag, and at eight seconds into the third video there appears to be a clip from some strange fetish porn.

    No, but really, why is she attending the school? If she just wants something to do or wants to learn stupidly ineffective moves, hell, let her. If she wants to learn how to defend herself or how to throw effective strikes it's probably not going to be her cup of tea. Have you talked to him or his fiancee about it?

    EDIT: Pauli beat me to the hair joke.

    Well then hell, if she wants to learn Flying Tiger Side Kicks or whatever the hell they're teaching from a guy who apparently idolizes My Chemical Romance, it's her choice, regardless of how stupid it is.

    You know what raises a red flag for me? Pretty much anywhere that uses the term "martial science". I've never seen it used by a group that wasn't a black clothes wearing krotty + crappling suckfest.

    Also that whole genre of music they chose is just awful. And I love metal, by the way. I don't even know what you call that crap.
