    This one is interesting to me. It's in my area and i knew of the guy. I also know he claimed to be a former SEAL. Just out of curiosity - what prompted this investigation? Not saying it wasn't warranted. I just don't usually see Bullshido investigations on dead people. I'm curious as to how this one came about.

    Yeah, well definitely interesting. It's a shame, too. The guy kept this story up for a LONG time and a lot of people really believed in him.

    Dead Men can tell no tales

    Why after his death does he get called out? I think I knew him pretty well and yep some claims were out there, but his students really loved him and he kept a thriving business until he died.
    Oh well, for the "investigator" just remember what goes around comes around. Please if you are so pure then cast your stone.

    Thanks,
    Rick Gilliland

    according to a quick and dirty Google search on the IP which came up, someone with the exact same IP signed a Gene Knaub guestbook under the name of Tylor Knaub:

    i wanted to congratulate my uncle gene on a great victory a ssp and his championship at linclon...And good job to aunt kendra too. so wish you the best of luck
    YOUS NUMBER ONE FAN TYLER KNAUB
    So who are you, Rick Gilliland or Tyler Knaub?

    Doing an investigation on him is just a load of crap. Mr.G was an amazing man. And regardless of what this article says I will NEVER question him. If somebody wants to take it upon themselves to lead an investigation, that is up to them. But please do not trash the name of the dead. Show the man a little respect. If you knew him, or had your life so amazingly affected by him (for the better), you would understand why this has me and a couple others fuming.

    Hi Katie:

    If you want to act like a cult member, and NEVER question, thats your personal decision. We have proof he falsely claimed to be a SEAL and a Vietnam Vet. In my opinion if a person makes false military claims that renders them lower then whale *%$#. His claim to hold a black belt rank in Judo isn't holding up well either. If you want to do something positive for your deceased master please scan a copy of his Judo Dan Certificate(s) and post them here.
