    Burrell Skip Koepke, Seki Ryu Japanese JuJitsu, a FRAUD?

    Lol, this guy claims to be a 10th Dan Soke of Seki Ryu JuJitsu from Sanzo Seki; however, the truth is Linda Gross was left the Seki Ryu system by Sanzo Seki upon his death. Go look up his YouTube videos, they are pathetic yet hilarious. His techniques are all magician tricks, no real waza at all. Anybody have info on this phony quack?

    Also, he has an affiliate in the New Orleans area named Eric Hite. This guy is hilarious too; he quit training in the mid 90's over a legitimate local Sensei refusing to test him for Black Belt. Hite reappears in 2015 or so at a seminar and meets Koepke. Hite goes up to North Carolina and trains with Koepke in Koepke's backyard. Out of this Koepke promotes him from NikKyu (his last legitimate earned rank from the 90's) to 4th Dan!!! How do you jump someone this far???? LOL, lol Hite's next plan is when Koepke passes away is to immediately promote himself to 10th Dan. Does this guy have any morals, code of honor, or dignity?


    More facts on Eric Hite, he has a FALSE Judo rank issued by Bruce Bethers of the United States JiuJitsu Federation. Hite has never trained in the art of Judo nor has he ever earned a rank in art of Judo. How does an organization like the USJF issue a Judo rank to Hite and not verify his credentials, look at him on video(minimum) or have him come in to demonstrate/test to prove his skills?

    Please read the MABS stickies.

    Generally speaking, this isn't where you post stuff for other people to investigate. This is where you post as thorough an investigation as you currently have, and then ask others for help.

    Said investigation should include
    1) Proof of wrongdoing
    2) Proof of decieit
    3) Screen shots
    4) Correspondence that you have had with the individual discussing questionable claims.

    Also if you have any vested interest in said investigation you should disclose that immediately.

    Welcome to Bullshido and feel free to add more info.

    Do you mean the United States Judo Federation or the United States Jiu-Jitsu Federation?

    The United States Judo Federation has a rigorous process for recognizing Judo ranks as far as I am aware.

    I have no idea if the United States Jiu-Jitsu Federation does, as they are separate organizations...

    For some reason a "Susan Piper" here on the forum doesn't like it when I enforce the rules and do my job as a Staff Member.
    I will never understand people.

    Fixed and I think my favorite part was "title text here" after the demo in what looks like a doctors office.

    You probably should try eating more fiber. That helped me with my having to use the force problem.

    Because the Force is like magnetism, and opposite magnets attract. But since BJJ is obviously for men who are attracted to other men, the laws of magnetism don't apply to it
