    "SELF DEFENSE GERMANY" ?!?!? anybody?

    I was searching for pictures for the disaster thread when I stumbled across this site.

    http://www.selfdefense-germany.de

    They advertise realistic self defence (hapkido and tkd ?!?) but right under the ad they offer point fighting?
    Also the website indicates that they are not affiliated with any of the "traditional" Hapkido/TKD organisations yet they claim to be "traditional" and say they have ties to BlackBelt international.
    The site comes with catchy phrases like you would expect it from McDojo and everywhere you can register and sign up (for about 500€ a year which is quite a lot compared to all the other tkd schools I know)

    The teacher is "Gregor Huss" has his own Kwan (he is German) and I have never heard of him before, never seen him on any of the big seminars in Germany etc. which is unusual for somebody to be "that good".

    On the other hand they hold BJJ seminars with "Orlando Machado Neto"

    Does anybody know about this school, the instructor or is close (Munich) and can check out his school?
    Maybe I am wrong but the website has a lot of red flags...

                OP,

                Your Spidey sense tingling is a good thing. This looks goofy...even if it wasn't German.

                      You need a permit for self-defense in germany.

                        I am training for 10 years and nobody ever told me that crap, no police officer leading the training, no lawyer at the seminars and most important the law does not mention anything like that.
                        What you need is a license to teach anything that involves physical activity (sport), which sucks sometimes but secures at least a minimal knowledge of training in general.

                            Maybe he meant a "Waffenschein"(concealed carry permit), which you basicly can't get. A 7- figure lottery win is more likely than aquiring one for yourself.

                              Well that is a different story. And I am some what happy about the fact that not every run down shmock can get a concealed carrier license. If you want to have one, you need to argue why you need one and bring good reason (working as a bodyguard is one) otherwise it is a good thing, I think. But that is just me.
                              I kind of like the idea that the "worst" thing that can happen to me is a bunch of Russians with baseball bets, brass knuckles and knifes. And if that should happen, I had it coming, they don't beat you up like that for nothing. Actually they are pretty cool if you know some of them and speak some basic russian and since I know how to drink vodka I never had any trouble, just offer them a round and drink with them and you have some new friends ...
                              Edit: There is a difference between a Waffenschein and a concealed carrier license. You can get a Waffenschein when you have been a member of a shoot club for I think 1 year and did your range exam. (Or you are a registered Hunter)
                              Then you can apply to get a Waffenschein and get your own weapon. But you are not allowed to carrie it with you (concealed carrier license), this is a different story.
