    Baloney 9th

    Just noticed some guy in Massachusetts claims he got a ninth dan in small circle jujitsu from professor jay in January of 2016.
    Professor jay must be some kind of powerful guy, since he died in 2011

    Can I suggest that you provide a bit more information. For example:
    • Who is "this guy"
    • Where is it stated that he personally received his 9th Dan from Prof Jay and not his organisation?
    • What is your interest here? Are you from a rival school etc


    Without sounding like one of the admins, this is a highly moderated forums. I do suggest that you read the "stickies" to get an understanding of what is required for an investigation.

They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past and that besides, they have already won

    His name is ed melaugh. From his website (jujitsudefense.com) "Sensei Melaugh was promoted by Professor Jay to Ninth Degree Black Belt 1/23/16 in Small Circle Jujitsu".
    My only interest is the reputation of professor jay, one of the most respected martial artist in recent times

    Small Circle is notoriously divided, and the "official" association isn't necessarily a guarantee of anything anymore than the Bruce Lee Foundation means you are getting "real JKD"

    This video clip below shows that at least Melaugh has trained with Professor Jay to a level




    Frankly a bigger concern is SCJJ associating with Dillman's utter shite

    To piggyback on this a simple Google search turned up the following letter from Wally Jay specifically naming Ed MeLaugh as one of his successors

    That was my first thought initially, but no it wasn't. Leon booted him out shortly after Wally passed.

    The inside on Melaugh is that he was primarily a "seminar taught" instructor, and this didn't sit too well with those who had trained out of SCJJ main dojo under Wally on a daily/weekly basis. As I said above he clearly DID train with Wally and had some claim to Soke Dai...self promoting after? Well I wouldn't but if he wants to sure, why not

    Claiming it was given to him by Wally though? That's not great - my guess for his explanation will be "a typo on the date"
