    Tribal Dragon Self Defense

    Please be warned if you are ever looking for a legit MMA gym this is not it. The instructor is a self proclaimed black belt that I can honestly say does not have one. He has scammed people of their hard earned money in the past with bogus businesses. To make matters worse he injured a cop during a botched robbery. He spent time in the pen where he claimed to have received his BJJ training. I think the only BJJ he got there has nothing to do with this honorable art. His so called Dojo is in Loveland, Co.
    Here is a link to his site....

    If you decide to join this group it would be sad when someone gets hurt and he does not take liability for it.

    Welcome to Bullshido, Knife Edge. It would probably be wise to go introduce yourself in Newbietown first ( http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=64 ). But, nevertheless thank you for bringing this to our attention. In order to really investigate your claims we're going to need a significantly larger amount of information. Starting with the instructor's name, I can't find it on his page or on the facebook group.

    Just to clarify how do you know (Proof) that he is not a legit black belt.

    Boy, there isn't a whole lot of information to go on, either on their homepage or facebook. Is there somewhere that he claimed to be a blackbelt, and in what art would that be?

    The domain is registered to a Lew Gaiter III but I cant find anything relating to a Lew Gaiter III and BJJ or MMA.

    We could just email them and ask them their background. This place does not look like a real mma location and is just running with the name.
