    A New Local Gung Fu Instructor

    This is from Lansing, MI local parks and rec classes.

    Gung Fu is a southern Chinese Shaolin martial arts system that fosters
    health and balance while emphasizing trustworthiness, respect,
    and fortitude. Students with disabilities are encouraged to enroll.
    Instructor: Theodore Ransaw. 8 SESSIONS. No class 11/22.

    I can't find anything on this turkey. He did write this fake book: https://www.amazon.com/Sexual-Secret.../dp/0595144969
    Is there anyplace that you can do a lookup of Gung Fu instructor certifications?

    I like how it has 1 star.

    Why don't you start by verifying his degree from UNLV?

      GenBS -------> YMAS

      YMAS is general catch all for martial arts threads including but not limited to seeking information on possible BS artists or good instructors.
      GenBS is for all other topics which relate to skepticism, or interesting bits of bullshit.

      googling Theodore Ransaw brings up what appears to be a well respected fellow:
      Theodore Ransaw
      Michigan State University, James Madison College, Faculty Member +2 | Teacher Education+16
      Theodore S. Ransaw, Ph.D., Research Specialist, Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, and Core Faculty Member, African and African American Studies, Michigan State University. Doctoral degree awarded at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I have been in k-12 education for three years and a higher education instructor for 8. My research areas include masculinity, fatherhood, gendered literacy and educational outcomes. I am the author of The Art of Being Cool: The Pursuit of Black Masculinity, co-author of The Masculinity and Portrayals of African-American Boys in Young Adult Literature, and co-editor of the series International Race and Education. Published by MSU Press.
      I recognized that my undergraduate Black male students did not have a place to explore their identity in a ‘safe-place,’ so I created one of the first Black masculinity classes in the United States. From there we established a mentorship program at three at-risk elementary schools for Black and Latino boys with assessments as part of a class project. In short, I was inspired by my Black male students who wanted to know more about the journey of being Black and male and their desire to help others Black males by working collectively.
      Which looks to be a far cry from

      Theodore S. Ransaw has a Bachelor of Science degree inPublic Relations from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada.Theodore has studied various forms of martial artsincluding Korean Tae-Kwon-Do, Okinawan Karate,Chinese Gung-Fu, and is currently studying Chinese Tai-Chi.Theodore has also been trained in Swedish Massage,Hatha Yoga, Asian Tai-Chi, Chinese Chi-Gung, andEgyptian Aromatherapy.A member and a Sunday School teacher of the SundaySchool Church, Theodore has received spiritual trainingform both the Protestant Church, and the CatholicChurch as an alter boy in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

        That review is amazing
        April 26, 2005
        Format: Paperback
        This book is not worth the purchase. The author writes a simplified, seventh-grade-level, hardly interesting view of the Egyptians with a few tips on aromatherapy, sexual massage, and sexual positions.There is very little to do with Cleopatra in this one, let alone her sexual secrets. The sexual secrets he discusses aren't very secret, rather, they are basic.

        He makes sure to point out how men are under stress from the 'many roles' they have to play in our society without giving any time to the similar situation in which women find themselves.

        I found his explanations over-simplified, the title misleading, and the typos and lack of editing very disappointing (he mentions KARMA sutra) - spelled just like that, and confuses the spelling and useage for words such as: there/their, too/to. Throughout the book, semen is spelled: s-e-a-m-a-n.
        Probly not the same guy as I linked above ...

          So, just to be clear, if you’ve been specially trained as an altar boy by the Catholic Church... does that mean you’re okay getting anal from creepy older men?

            It was 1 review total, but he didn't write it, he compiled it.

            His other (academic text) books on African American Studies have 5 star reviews.

            His academic credentials look legit: http://michiganstate.academia.edu/TheodoreRansaw, but I'm also unconvinced this is the same guy offering the Shaolin lessons.

              I guess they could be the same person...the Egyptian sex compilation and bio (written 18 years ago) predates the current UNLV bio by almost two decades.

              Interesting he specifically said "southern Chinese"...that pares it down a bit.

              It could be pretty easy to validate his lineage by finding out his instructor's name/school.
