    Ken Stronach MMA 5th dan

    Ken Stronach at g5martialarts.co.uk is claiming to be a 5th dan in MMA on his website. This isnt possible is it?. Who issues grades in MMA?

    I know he's an old student of Pete Delane of Bushido Gloucester fame whos been exposed as a fraudster. What do you guys think?

    There are no belts or dans in MMA because it is not a specific martial art. That is about it.

      There are no traditional martial art ranks/belts in MMA. There are a few schools that claim their own "in house" or "DOJO RANK."

        From the instructors page of the website which is here

        Sensei Ken Stronach has been training in the exciting world of Martial Arts for over 33 years and has been a successful professional instructor for 10 of those years.

        Ken started his Martial Arts career at aged just 7 years old, when he joined The Kyokushin-Kai Karate Club in Camberwell, London. Over the years Ken has trained in Kyokushin-Kai Karate, Wado-Ryu karate, Kung Fu, Aikido, Judo, Bushido Karate, Aikido-Te, Freestyle Karate and Ken Kai Ryu (Japanese Sword). He has also spent many years as a self defence specialist and is a member of the Institute of Conflict Management.

        Grades currently held include:-
        Black belt 5th Dan Masters Degree Freestyle Karate.
        Black belt 4th Dan British Bushido Karate.
        Black belt Ken Kai Ryu (Japanese sword)
        Black belt Aikido-Te
        Black belt 5th Dan Mixed Martial Arts.

        Some of the above may or may not be dubious but with regards to the MMA reference, it looks a semantics game of "Ido lots of different arts so if i put them all together then it must be Mixed Martial Arts".

        I can't find any reference on the site to MMA as we would know it.

            A better explanation is always warranted. What I will say is that, IMO, he is too young to be playing this semantics game.

              FWIW I think you're spot on but I'd like to see what the OP comes up on his own before I spend anymore time on this.

                  No worries mate. To be honest there are a few red flags on that website but you can never be too sure about why people are looking into it. Sometimes its serious, sometimes its an ex student with a trolly full of butt-hurt about something.

                  Now that its been moved to newbietown you can ask all the questions you like.

                  P.S.

                  Welcome to Bullshido.

                    I have sent Ken a polite email asking him for a little more information on the MMA grading system and if by MMA he means UFC MMA.

                    Its not often something pops up within my reach so I may as well take a look.

                    Ill keep you posted.

                          It'll be interesting to see what he comes back with.

                          EDIT: What Ken comes back with; not Manco.

                            I was a member of Bushido Academy of Martial Arts run by a guy called Pete Delane who has appeared in threads on Bullshido before. I never knew or trained with Stronach but I keep an eye on the Bushido school and its offshoots which is how i stumbled across G5martial arts.

                              Do you know if his school is linked to Delane? (other than through linage)
