    Phoenix Sensei.

    Some time ago we had chuckles over at the "Advanced ninjutsu lols" thread over some training videos and pictures of Lost Legacy Mixed Martial Arts(http://www.lostlegacysystems.com/Home.htm). The soke of their system is one Jean-Francois Le Grand, who has a pretty impressing resume.

    Quoting: Black Belts in Karate-Do, Tae Kwon Do, Kodokan Judo, Full Contact Fighting, Gun & Knife Defense/Use, IOMASDA Ryu/Tetsu Tako Do, Ju-Jutsu/Jiu-Jitsu, Ninjutsu/Ninjitsu, Shaolin Kung-Fu & Ultimate Bujutsu System. End quote.

    Now, I don't know Mr. Le Grand. I've never heard of him, I've never seen him and I've never seen him in action, so as a 4th-kyu jujutsuka I'm nobody to evaluate his skills. I do however have a working e-mail account, and therefore I sent a mail to kodokan, asking about his black belt claim. Here's the reply:



    Fancy that.

    Does anyone know this guy? Could he be worth to make an investigation about?

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    His rank is much more likely to have been issued by (one of) the NGBs in the U.S.

    I wonder what his PhD thesis was about...

    Destrucity perhaps?



    Also, sorry for being an ignorant douche, but what's a NGB?
