    WTF is Wabujitsu?

    OK, what the hell is Wabujitsu? I know what the guy claims on his website but look at these demonstrations of what he does.
    Is this supposed to be karate or something?

    Seeing as those videos are posted under the section called karate videos, good chance it is supposed to be karate or something. Jeff Cook is a moderator at Budoseek, you could always ask him, not like he is hiding or anything.

      Since no one else has yet welcomed you to the Bullshido and MABS let me be the first.

      Why have you posted an investigation where you have not shown due diligence?

      The way these things work are like this. You check out the school and ask certain questions.
      What style(or styles) do they teach?
      Why do they teach them?
      What rank are the instructors and in what styles?
      Who gave them these ranks?
      What specific claims do they make that seem fraudulant?
      Sit in on a class or three, perhaps take a video camera along with you. When you have exhausted all possible avenues for your own research then you post here asking for help where necessary.

      As much as some other forums might say otherwise, this forum is not an assassination squad to be called out whenever there is something you don't like. So please do your homework.

      Oh and welcome to Bullshido, and I hope you enjoy your stay.

        What's Budoseek? A discussion forum?

          I am not posting an investigation but rather a question.

            Yes. Need more characters to make the computer happy.

              Dude, lurk more, then post. Do you want to know about the school, or the "style"? Bro, I am not being mean or nasty, but you could have done an internet search (Google was invented for a few good reasons).

                    The chief instructor is a Christian Karate Association member. Other than that, he seems like he has some decent Judo skills.

                      Jeff Cook is also a certified H2H instructor for the US military....and is a member on E-budo as well as Budoseek, and I believe he has an account here. He is not shy about challenging other peoples credentials so will likely be happy to furbish his own if you ask.

                      Here is a link that I paraphrased from below :

                      http://www.e-budo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38601

                      - am Active Duty, and a certified Modern Army Combatives Program Instructor (in addition to being a classical/gendai martial arts instructor and a long-time student of BJJ)
                      - background with personal combat is through my experience as a high-risk security operative/consultant for 18 years - with hundreds of "hands-on" engagements - including bladed weapons and firearms.

                      My understanding is the name is just a way of Jeff 'marketing' his system, not any kind of Bullshido-like ancient-lineage type crap.

                        Those are from a set of 5 karate kata, created by Anko Itosu sometime in the early 1900s I believe.

                        In Okinawan styles, they are called Pinan. In Japanese, they are called Heian. In Korean, they're called Pyung Ahn. The sequence of movements are the same from country to country, differing only stylistically.

                        They're listed under the Karate section of his videos, so... do you ride a short bus to school?

                          If you haven't seen enough here, you could always ask Jeff over on Budoseek.net.

                              I'm doing well Jeff. I'm glad to see I was correct about you having an account here.
                              Cheers
