      Well there you have it OP, no count dante on video. But if you get to the flea market this weekend, some old fart will probably have a vhs player for sale, rummage up your spare laundry money and pony up. Once you've mastered the dance of death, do us a huge favor and create a youtube channel. I for one will surely take a look at what you learned, fair enough?

        I think I still have a copy of World’s Deadliest Fighting Secrets (1968) that my dad’s surfer friend gave me back in the day (I believe he ordered it from a comic book). I could learn the kata dante just for the hell of it.

          If you want to know what Keehan actually taught, come to Chicago and find some of his old students, or his students' students. Some are still teaching, mostly out of YMCAs and community center type places.

          Before, he took on his whole "deadliest man alive" persona, Keehan taught Goju Shorei Karate. In fact, the first half of "Kata Dante" (right before the point where the guy goes apeshit and starts jumping up and down, trying to stomp on someone's head) is actually the very first form I learned when I was 9 years old taking a karate class at Chicago State University, back in the mid 80's. 15 years later, I started back up at another karate school taught by a different instructor who also happened to be under the Keehan lineage.

          It may sound weird that I happened to find two different karate instructors, 15 years apart, that can both trace their lineage through Keehan, but it makes sense if you understand Chicago back in the 60's and early 70's. Chicago was a VERY segregated city, and most of the martial arts instructors back then didn't teach blacks. Keehan was the glaring exception. As a result, the majority of black karateka from that era trace their lineage through Keehan.

          You may think that after becoming "Dante" that Keehan taught stuff that was so much more deadly and efficient. He didn't. EVERY video I have seen of "Dan-te" practitioners on youtube shows grown men that would get the living shit kicked out of them in a real street fight by the pre-teen and teenage kids in my karate class back in the 80's, no exaggeration. The adults I took goju shorei with 15 years later would absolutely rape the Dan-te guys with no Vaseline.

          My overall experience with legit Keehan pre "Dan-te" karate was positive. The school did a lot of hard contact contiuous sparring, and the instructor required that students take some judo/jujutsu to round out their training. Their fighting skills were nowhere near that of a Kyokushi, Shidokan, or Muay Thai fighter, however they were light-years ahead of the Shotokan and Tae kwon do I had experienced.

            Those guys are the loudest ninjas I've ever seen/heard. Aren't they supposed to use stealth or something?

            I can imagine the 911 call
            "HELP! I just heard what I think is my neighbor's dog being assraped, or a ninja performing a deadly kata!"
            Amazing to see Kata Dante after 25 years of waiting for the Internet to be developed so someone could post a Youtube video of it and confirm what I figured out at age 12: it's bullshit.

            You should see the actual book.:bssign:

              DANTE TAPES

              I have the tape from Bill Aguiar in Fall River, MASS.......The quality isn't that good and came in a plain VHS box but does show all the "Poison Hand" strikes that comprise the BDFS. Pretty much Kung Fu/Kempo stuff, most open handed. Have heard its on DVD but try EBay as it was on there a few years ago trying to command some high price. I don't think the school in Fall River exists anymore, no record of it anyway.
