    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    Well I'm guessing this is the first time He has been talked about. Think I should post something in the fraud investigation?

    For the love of god, don't **** up MABS.

    Go read the stickies in there so you can realize how much of a bad idea that would be.

    What makes you think he is a fraud or worthy of investigation? He may just be a loser. I can call myself a 10th degree black belt and teach people. It means nothing. Especially in a strip mall karate place like this.

    Yeah, is there any evidence that his Judo or Kenpo ranks are bs? From their pics page it looks like atleast some compete NAGA...

    for instance,
    Yesterday in Logan I checked out the newish TKD dojand that sez "We also teach Judo." The TDK bb admitted that he was only a green in Judo and that they test in their SLC dojang where there is someone cert'd by USAJUDO to test. So while according to my Kaju sifu he can't even do or teach armbar, and he has totally pissed off the local BJJ guys (who were at first thrilled, thinking that they'd be able to cross train with a Judo bb), and I wouldn't dream of advising anyone to practice at this dojang, he's not worthy of investigation.

    fug, I checked out his claims of his Kenpo rank. There is some controversy as to his actual rank. Many remember that he made it to 8th Dan, but how he made it to 10th is not very clear. He is a legit Kenpo instructor that has made his focus on the "sport karate" area. Truly there are few who can claim the 10th Dan mantle and they are all 1st Gen students of Mr. Parker. I know he is s student of Joe Palanzo, who is also somewhat of a controversy in the Kenpo world by some of his claims. As far as his other rank claims, I am not sure. I don't think it would be hard to contact him. I hope this info helps.

    Are there fraud claims being or not?
