Mr. Leffler apparently used to be head of the German branch of the Black Dragon Fighting Society before it ws disbanded

The Dutch branch of the kurokumo bushido still uses Ashida graphics on their new site so he's not out of sight... ;)

The kurokumo bushido thing is also bullshit but i've posted about that earlyer on ;)
