I came across this web site promoting Budoshin Jujitsu.

http://www.alljujitsu.com/

Does anyone know about Mark Jordan, Godan, or this form of martial art? I have taken five years of aikido and always thought jujitsu looked like a good compliment, but I do not know much about it. When researching it, I came across this guy's website and dojo.

If this has already been discussed then a link to the thread would be appreciated. I did a search for Mark Jordan here but came up empty handed.

I would be grateful for any insight. Thanks!

Mr. MobyGrapes,

Why are you posting in the Fraud, Investigation and Standars section? What in particular about the web site you listed, that gave you pause for concern? Five years in Aikido should give you something as a base to evaluate a style and come to your own conclusion. What do you have?

What I found on the link you gave is that basically Mark is a George Kirby black belt, who has been around for a long time and now also passes out black belts. Not sure how his style has been modified.

Mark seems to be open to discussions on Jitsu, so if you have issues call him yourself. If you don't, and you just placed this in the wrong section, and are not calling Marks style a faud, or alledging that he promises students anything other than he can deliver, then ask a Mod nicely to move this to someplace else. Try this....

I apologize if I posted this on the wrong board. I was looking it as the category of MA Standards, since I have always been leery of arts which contain a correspondence course to black belt. I was not looking at Mr. Jordan as a fraud. His jujitsu style I find to be very interesting, and yes I can base my five years judgement on that. Was simply wondering if there was anything anyone knew about him other then his website. If there is a better place to post, then by all means please move it there.

Thank you CD Ronin for the links.

Before you move it, maybe some of our folks in the Armed Forces (instructor talks Special Operations, bigtime - with no mention of personal experience) should check out this page from the original poster's link:

Just a thought.

It will take someone with Armed Forces background to give an indication of how much of the Special Operations martial arts training he would have been exposed to during his years in service.


Excerpt from: Biography Mark Jordan
After graduating from high school, he joined the Navy and served from 1976 to 1982. In addition to his primary duty as a Sonar Technician, he also served as a Security Force Instructor, Nuclear Weapons Guard Team Leader, Shore Patrol Squad Leader and qualified on all Navy "small arms". He got his first real taste for the martial arts through both his military and informal training, and he's been addicted ever since.
