    They've gone very quiet recently, but the main training centre (Delane's house) has been closed for business by the authorities over planning regs and no proper applications to use it as a business premises. Which fits with the 'under the radar' (ie, not doing anything properly) approach the BAMA seems to have.

    Hopefully it will curtail their activities a little.

      So they've started up a few 'breakaway' organisations with no visible connection to the BAMA, as the name is now so tainted. But you can bet Delane's pulling the strings. Here's one:

        This is the first of the seitei, a 'generic' iai kata, notice the focus, the domination of the 'opponent', and the feel of the form, this is iai, before you even worry about the specifics of the techniques themselves.



        As for the technique, lots wrong, and I am far far far from an expert.

          "Grand Master Chusan is actually called Pete Delane "

          I believe this is the same guy that was covered in the " Jon Alexander " expose ?

              These muppets are worse than the Krause brothers. At least they did sorta know what they were talking about.

                It's been a while since I've done sword work, but that shit didn't look like anything I've ever been taught.

                If you watch a legit sword kata, the strikes are done as if they are actual strikes. In that entire video I didn't see what looked like a single actual cut, just lack of control, bad/made up attacks and a dude focused on trying to cut all his fingers off.

                For an example of my experience, I did several years of Shinkendo:


                Notice the sword kata stuff, the students seem to be a range of beginner to advanced, but they all have better technique than that video. Observe particularly their dome (the abrupt end of a cut) and nagashi (transition from cut to cut).

                  Now that was an excellent video

                    I've actually trained at one of their schools years ago, they got one in Amsterdam aswell.
                    the teacher was a really nice guy.

                      Agreed, got my heart thumping slightly faster anyway.

                          Another branch of the same school, more bullshit. I'm pretty sure none of these people have any grounding in any legitimate weapons, Aikido, or anything else they're claiming to have in depth knowledge of.

                              how many times have we heard " i can knock someone out from behind a door a tree or from across the room". If they could they wouldnt need to teach punching or kicking! cause they would be in the next super hero film.

                              Fuck em off they are total frauds
