    We're all studying the wrong style.

    As far as McDojoism goes, I think this pretty much speaks for itself.
    Hey, Ronald likes it, what can I say?

        Whoops, mistaken identity...


        The fatal shooting of Kwan Chung Kao in April by Rohnert Park police galvanizes Asian
        Americans in Sonoma County and elsewhere. Officer Jack Shields and Mike Lynch claim
        that Kao, who was drunk and waving a broomstick, was shot because they thought he was
        a martial arts expert.

            Kungfoolss MA Psychoanalysis -

            From the Demented mind of Sammy Franco..

            From: KUNGFOOLSS May-29 8:39 pm
            To: ALL


            This psychoanalysis will-again-address the psychosis rampant within the stylistic arts, and
            an observer will find this disorder quite prevalent throughout the martial arts as a whole.
            One could draw the parallel between this twisted behavior and the public scandals now rocking
            the Catholic institutions all across this great nation. It is a sickness that must be confronted
            and dealt with, hiding and ignoring the fact that these things do occur, serve only to harm
            innocents in the long run.

            In this analysis, (JKD stylist) Sammy Franco, angered by the growing criticism to his outlandish
            claims and challenges to his abilities, issued the following statement at his forum:


            "Luke's Challenge-- MY FINAL WORDS ON THE SUBJECT

            May 29 2002 at 11:42 AM

            Sammy Franco /Forum Owner


            Hello All,

            I am going to address Luke's seminar challenge once and for all. For some of you who don't
            know, I have an "open door challenge" which has been active for well over 11 years."

            **************************************************

            KFss- As an aside, supposed san soo amateur, Dave Hopkins, has a similar policy. However,
            because Dave was not CONFIDENT in his san soo art and abilities to deal with all manner of
            assault, he turned to brazilian grappling to shore up his deficiencies in groundfighting.
            san soo's a complete art, suuurre it is. (Chuckling)

            **************************************************

            " If you walk into my school or seminar and challenge me to a fight, you must agree to the
            following:

            1. You must sign a detailed waiver and release absolving me of any criminal or civil liability
            in the event of your death. This signature will be observed by three witness and then
            notarized."

            **************************************************

            KFss- (Scoffs) Please spare me. If I may interject some common sense here, signing a
            waiver that absolves Sam from any responsibility is simply not how reality functions.
            If the District Attorneys office decides to press criminal charges against Franco for an
            unlawful death, especially, when premeditated murder and intent is publicly stated and can
            be proven in a court of law (as we will soon see expressed), that piece of paper won't protect
            him from a murder charge and lengthy prison sentence. Sam knows this, so in effect, he is
            being disingenuous with his members.

            Furthermore, following the criminal prosecution, Franco would, in most likelihood, face a
            civil suit from the deceased challenger's surviving relatives. It is unlikely, that the $10,000
            fight prize Sammy demands, would hardly cover the legal fees resulting from his criminal
            trial, much less a pending civil suit.

            It is my contention, that this a clear attempt to scare and frighten challengers to Franco's
            "open door" policy. It is a Bluff, pure and simple. Then again, it could be that Sam really
            is stupid enough to go through with it and kill a challenger, believing the foolish fantasy,
            that a piece of paper actually grants him the license to kill. Many martial artists are so warped,
            I would be hard-pressed to dismiss such a potentiality.

            **************************************************

            "2. The fight will be video taped by my associates and I will be permitted to published,
            distribute and otherwise disseminate this tape to anyone I choose. Photographs are also
            permitted and may be distributed at my discretion. Your name will also be distributed so
            that all may learn from your tragic mistake."

            **************************************************

            KFss- Hey that's perfect, documented proof provided by defendant himself, for the
            prosecution to use in the criminal trial; sealing the fate of this demented stylist. Beautiful.

            **************************************************

            "3. There will only be one rule in the fight .... which is -THERE ARE NO FUKING RULES!
            When I say, no rules, I mean...NO RULES. I can use anything from a knife to a hammer to
            waste you. I might have a few of my pals work you over with baseball bats, and when both
            of us lock up on the ground, I can pull out my 9mm and blow your pea brains all over the
            wall ....Anything goes in Sammy Franco's open door challenge. Get it!!"

            **************************************************

            KFss- First off, Sammy is revealing how his "vaunted" combat system is nothing more
            than over-hyped street fighting. Why would he need such implements to defeat a grappler?
            Sure, he could use a gun, a baseball bat, a flame thrower, a bazooka or even a tank, but I
            thought an "open door" policy is to prove the abilities of the artist and the validity of the
            style. Taking this logic to the extreme, the challenger would need only to gather more
            people, arming them to the teeth and ambushing the arrogant and overconfident Franco,
            wiping out any remnants of the contemporary fighting art imbeciles forever.

            This is so stupid, regardless of Sam's claims, he's not interested in proving his style,
            otherwise, Franco would not need to resort to such scare tactics to frighten challengers.
            It's a sham, from an insecure, troubled man. I personally, don't know which is worse, that
            Sam has individuals twisted enough to support his organization, or that he thinks this is
            the only way to pass himself off as a "great" fighter.

            **************************************************

            "My objective is simple - I will do anything and everything to kill or severely cripple you.
            Period! However, if I am in a good mood that particular day, I may be generous and keep
            you alive with minimal brain function."

            **************************************************

            KFss- If anyone is functioning at the minimal brain power, it's Sam. A professional
            would never iterate such nonsense, especially, in the context of a stupid challenge.
            A True professional only takes action for purposes of saving his life and the lives of
            others, but never for some silly duel.

            **************************************************

            "Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I have never been about sport
            competition or some adolescent MA match - I am about street combat! Plain and simple!"

            **************************************************

            KFss- I don't know terribly much about Franco, other than his arts structure is identical
            to that of JKD concepts, and judging from this most recent post, Sam's a man with a serious
            emotional problem that could use plenty of professional counseling and anger management
            sessions.

            **************************************************

            "4. If you lose (and I'll bet my house that you will!) you must financially compensate me
            in the amount of $10,000 US dollars. I am a professional and I want to be paid for my time.
            BTW- Cash only! I don't accept checks."

            **************************************************

            KFss- Franco in his spare time must work as a telephone psychic, he's probably as accurate
            in this prediction, as he is in that other line of work. This $10,000 fee is another carefully
            orchestrated scare tactic Sam has developed to frighten off potential threats to his organizations
            "open door" charade.

            **************************************************

            "5. If you show up at my seminar simply to disrupt, annoy or harass our participants, I have
            two Montgomery County Police officers (who will also be participating at the seminar) who
            will arrest you on the spot. I hear the inmates at Seven Locks jail love to "break in" out of
            state bitch boys like yourself. Hmmmm, sounds like another new video release."

            **************************************************

            KFss- Such a puerile response, this is indicative and a representation of many martial artists
            I've dealt with in the past, it shows an emotional immaturity and a coward that hides behind
            his henchmen as he hurls insults at his opponents. Simply pathetic.

              Sammy Franco sounds like he is a Grandmaster in the Soprano's School of Reality fighting. He has to be a real fatass. Does McDojo award a Dumbass of the Month? Does he bring his gay waiver to bars?

                  With all due respect he did manage to break the cement blocks to attain his goal. Maybe
                  next time he can try to break a stack of wooden boards with nails sticking out.

                      Bruce Lee (26) Not to be confused with the martial arts legend, but instead a deformed epileptic pyromaniac who legally changed his name in honor of his Kung-Fu-fighting hero. This British arsonist once torched an old man after arguing with him over what to feed the pigeons. He killed eleven more people when he set an old age home ablaze.

                      In 1980 British police arrested him in a public bathroom frequented by gay men while he was looking for a b*** job. He confessed to all his crimes and is now locked up in an insane asylum practicing his Kung-Fu kicks.

                        I actually trained under a student/contemporary of Mark Saito. While the legends are extraordinary, and somewhat hard to believe, the skills of the master are not. Shannon Phelps, a Master of Saito Ninjutsu, is a hell of a fighter. I would not want to mess with him. Saito and he were both trained in Hawaii by the Father you are referring to in your article.

                          Groganer, extraordinary? Try, BS and impossible for anyone with half a brain to believe.
                          You may need to be deprogrammed my friend.

                          Yes...certainly at one particular point in Fred Ettish's career, his students feared him as well.

                            Kungfoolss,

                            What I said was that the legends are extraordinary, (which means out of the ordinary), and that they are hard to believe. I then went on to further state that Shannon Phelps is a hell of a fighter. What about that indicates that I need deprogramming?

                            I don't fear Shannon, nor do I fear his fighting skills. I have no need to, because I'll never fight him. I'm also no longer a student of his. That being said, I can still recognize that he is a hell of a fighter, and I can only conclude that this level of skill came from his master. Incidentally, Shannon started studying at the age of 3 or 4 because he had Polio, and it was the only way he was going to be able to live a normal life. I'd say that's pretty impressive, regardless of whether you think the legends of Saito Ninjutsu are true or not.

                            Peace!

                                I would agree with you. Learning from a ghost seems pretty ridiculous to me, though it's not out of the realm of possibilities. I personally believe that spirits, demons, ghosts, do exist, and thus why couldn't one learn from them?

                                That being said, it is a highly suspect legend. But it's a legend, and nothing more. It doesn't diminish the skills that the masters of this art hold.
