    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I thought that it would be interesting to look into his claims because.

    1. This is a heavily franchised school in my area. There are quite a few of them.

    2. The quality of teaching at these is very poor. If the schools are awful you can't expect the man at the top to smell like flowers.

    Now this could mean that he merely just went to the darkside and chose money over martial arts. Though a little peak would not hurt. Though he seems somewhat credible.

    Maybe ya oughta check it out yourself, eh?

    Maybe considering shutting the **** up until you have a semblance of a write-up. Maybe you'll even get an investigator tag if you get something good.

    So, you are saying that heavily franchised schools are fradulent in some way? Be sure to tell places like Gracie Barra, Harris International, Marcello Monteiro, that they are frauds for having franchise schools.

    Describe what you think is very poor about the school in question. Please remember that Tosten took his teachings to the "sport karate" arena and is not very interested in street practicality, full contact, or MMA. Also, what are your qualifications to decide what is poor or not?

    By teaching for money it makes it not a martial art anymore? Please enlighten us.

    I cannot speak for his credentials outside of Kenpo, but he is a legit Kenpo instructor with alot of years under his belt. IYO, he is "somewhat" credible. Yes, thereis some question about his moving from 8th to 10th Dan, but he is still a credible Kenpo instructor. No matter which arena he chooses to compete with his students.
