Just when you think that no one can say or do anything more stupid, Christa Jacobson comes along and hits one out of the park. I mean she hit the STUPID ball with the STUPID bat right out of the STUPID park.

 Jacobson lied and shot her mouth off about a very unfortunate incident that happened at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. A bronze medalist Judoka had witnessed a robbery and pursued the thief and then the good samaritan was sucker punched in the face from out of nowhere by another individual during the chase. The thief got away but the attacker was arrested.

However Jacobson chose to tell a different story. On her face book page she posted:
ON ONE HAND... It's sad to see the amount of violence that's in the world, everyday on the news. ON THE OTHER HAND... If he was also trained in #BudoRyuNinjutsu rather than just Sport #MartialArts (#Judo), than he probably wouldn't have gotten his ass whooped by some overweight drunk, that was hanging out on the beach, talking shit. #SorryNotSorry –Christa Jacobsen

She even went a step further and posted a link to the article that she supposedly got her information from. (I have inserted the actual screen capture.) Upon further investigation and going to the link that she provided in her post, I found that her version of things was nothing like what actually happened. She blatantly lied.

The judoka was NOT beat up on the beach by some fat drunk guy as she put it in her post.  The judoka, putting his life at risk, in one of the most dangerous cities in the world was trying to stop a robbery, a very gutsy move on the Judoka’s part if ya ask me. Jacobsen however, chose to misrepresent the entire situation and lie about it to promote herself and her school. 

Its obvious she wanted to captilize on the incident to the point of lying about it. But rather than admit that she misspoke or made a mistake or just should nt have said anything because she didint really know ANY of the details of the incident she went off on her own personal tangent to take this a step further.
So I woke up this morning to yet another screen capture that was sent to me by a online acquaintance. Responding to my article Jacobson says:
#Cowards Scared to talk to me face to face/1-on-1, so they get online & trash me thinking it is “safe”. Don’t think I forgot, I’ll find you.

So, as all can see her response was a threat. (Screen capture added) In all honesty Jacobsen could have said she made a mistake and jumped to conclusions, or she didnt even bother reading the article that she herself used in her post. She could have apologized and said she misspoke or should have waited to say something until she got all the details about the incident.  However that “high road” isn’t the one she took, instead she dug her heels in on the back of her lie and sent a threat.

Then I received another screen capture, made several hours later I assume, in which she says:  No matter how much you get: walked on, mocked, taken advantage of, trashed or hated. Be mad, Breathe, take the high road & set the example”.

Good advice there, so why didn’t Jacobson follow her own advice and take the high road? Jacobson obviously didn’t give any second thoughts to walking on, mocking, trashing, lying about and taking advantage of a Belgian Bronze medalist in judo that was simply trying to do the right thing and stop a robbery. Jacobson damn sure didn't take the high road and wasted no time in slandering the Olympic bronze medalist and twisted the story around and lied about the incident to make him look foolish and herself superior.

 Jacobsen now wants people to think that after trashing a world class athlete that she is the one who was trashed. She is not being trashed, she isn't being mocked or taken advantage of, as she claimed in her post. It isnt hateful to call her out on her un-budo like behavior. Jacobson is not the victim here. She is the one who did the victimizing. 

Jacobson got caught in a lie PERIOD. Jacobson got called on her slanderous, bullshit, fucked up, idiotic statement. A statement that she publically made (AND REALLY SHOULD APOLOGIZE FOR) JUST so she could brag and make herself look good.

Beware of those who brag about who they are and their abilities..... A lion never has to convince ANYONE that it’s a lion. NUFF SAID!

Oh, did I strike a nerve? #SorryNotSorry

"Anytime there is combat between two people and Judo is used, regardless of the race, regardless of the method of fighting, Judo will invariably occupy the highest tier. It cannot and must not lose this prestige. The loss of this position will be Judo's downfall. The day judo is toppled is the day the foundation of the samurai spirit crumbles.

For that reason the dignity of judo must be guarded revereently, even as it must also, and this goes with out saying, be tested against other developed systems of martial arts. Then you must transcend both theory and rule and become a demon." - "Ninjutsu to Yojutsu" by Gingetsu Itoh circa 1909

Unlike the wisdom, respect and knowledge found in the above qoute from an authentic NINJUTSU source sometimes I see things in the martial arts that are just so despicably disgustingly and disturbingly idiotic on so many levels that it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that these "self appointed self promoted masters" really have nothing but shit for brains.

There is nothing that gets me madder than to hear or read some idiot that decides to shoot their mouths off about something they obviously have no knowledge about. Take a look at the picture to the left and read what this idiot had to say about a bronze medalist judoka who tried to stop a robbery in Rio shortly after winning the bronze medal in Judo.

First off, I have to consider the source and their mindset behind their words. Basically riding on news like this and other unfortunate incidents to PIMP their martial art. This is nt the first time this so called expert has done something like this when there are active shooter incidents that had made headlines she and her minions manage to pop their heads up and claim to have the tactical knowledge to survive over come and subdue heavily armed people or groups of people single handedly with their “mad ninja skills”. In reality its all just self centered attention seeking narcissistic fantasy. 

ON ONE HAND... It's sad to see the amount of violence that's in the world, everyday on the news. ON THE OTHER HAND... If he was also trained in #BudoRyuNinjutsu rather than just Sport #MartialArts (#Judo), than he probably wouldn't have gotten his ass whooped by some overweight drunk, that was hanging out on the beach, talking shit. #SorryNotSorry –Christa Jacobsen

Jacobsen has a history of taking advantage of tragedies to promote herself and tearing down other arts to try to make herself look good. However when she lies about what actually happened as well, that goes WAY over the line. Not only does Christa Jacobsen PIMP her martial art she goes an step further and criticizes Judo, an Olympic sport but even implies that a bronze medalist Judoka cant fight.  She is definitely implying that it wouldn't have happened if the Judoka had her skills. Though I think the judoka or any serious judoka would make very quick work of this idiot. Doubt either her or any of her Budo Ryu students would last a day in the streets of Rio De Janeiro one of the most violent cities in the world.

Keep in mind that this person Anshu Christa Jacobsen claims to be a Ninja and a witch.  (Hey guys I cant possibly make this shit up.) Specializing in trash talking from the suburbs of Kansas Jacobsen grossly misrepresented an incident in Rio during the Olympic games, in which an Olympic bronze medalist in judo was robbed and attacked, as an drunken altercation, JUST so she could bring attention to herself to PIMP out her online ninja training program.

What happened in reality was that the bronze medalist Dirk Van Tichet witnessed a robbery in progress, he then chased the robber and in the course of the chase the medalist was struck in the face by another individual. The thief got away but the attacker was arrested.

According to BOC communications director Luc Rampaer and police reports, ‘His training partner’s phone was stolen and as Dirk ran after the thief, he was punched in the face by someone else.

Jacobsen not only goes so far as to belittle and mock judo and the Olympic athlete but totally fabricates what happened during the incident in an attempt to prove that if people trained under her it wouldn't have happened. This is stereotypical, totally delusional, narcissistic "I am a Ninja master" bullshit. Jacobsen displays no grasp of reality, no clue of reality based self defense scenarios at all and attempts to twist the story around to fit her own personal agenda to make a few bucks by riding on a news headline to pimp her made up martial art.

Judo from its very beginning has been a self-defense and combat discipline. The original Judo from Jigoro Kano was and still is a full featured combat discipline which formed the basis for many Military and Police tactics around the world. Judo served well as an official system of Japanese Imperial armed forces and Japanese police.

Judo is a sport but it is much more "combatives" oriented.  The judoka trains at grappling range, a close quarter combat range developing avenues to quickly put an end to a hand to hand or close quarter combat situation. Current Judo rules on groundwork foster such a mindset – execute and explode into a groundwork submission technique in a matter of seconds or get back on your feet.  Judo also prepares you mentally and physically to withstand the rigors of an assault. There is a reason that old school law enforcement and the United States military taught Judo...IT WORKS.

Jacobsen’s little face book post goes beyond just second guessing someone who made a decision to take action in a matter seconds in the heat of a bad moment. Jacobsen told an out right lie and misrepresented what actually happened victimizing and belittling a world class athlete and judoka. I doubt seriously either Jacobsen or any of her students could handle a recreational judoka much less handle an elite level judo player. Maybe she would have cast a spell or "ninjer" rigged the stolen property to explode.

The bronze medalist Judoka was obviously not going to let his training partner or himself be a victim of a crime. Whats even more disturbing as you read what she says in the picture then compare it to what actually happened she is actually victimizing the victim of an ambush type attack.

Its ironic that a Belgian bronze medalist judoka, in a foreign country, in one of the most violent cities in the world, Rio, makes a stand to not be victimized but a self appointed self promoted "ninjer"ANSHU Christa Jacobsen takes a turn at victimizing and belittling the actions of this Olympic athlete and good Samaritan, who tried to stop a robbery, just so she can sell a dvd and promote herself.

There is something very vile about a charlatan instructor that takes advantage of stories like out of Rio to do a little promotion. Anshu Christa Jacobsen obviously doesn't care who she walks on or tramples over in order to sell herself and her Martial arts. A self professed master of a Martial art, Jacobsen displays no traits or behavior of one..... But what do ya expect from the mouth of an idiot.

Watch out for those who brag about who they are and their ability.... A lion never has to convince anyone that it's a lion.

Last week I did a blog on dangerous freaks in the martial arts. I used the example of the guy who calls himself Kairo Seijuro, but whose real name is Kenny.

Kenny was getting some flack from people about his Youtube videos. He is terrible at sword work, but like most incompetents feels a need to show off and be complimented. When he got honest opinions instead of compliments, he tried to get nasty and one up folks with the following statement.

“the best part about the way i was raised is that only battle that are lethal are worth fighting at if you are sore enough to go out of your way to risk your pride and life  then ill happily accept....but not for some cheap short sighted fist-cuff of competition... ”

Underlying this type of bravado is the implication that no one would dare come face him for a lethal exchange. This is a strategy of many internet tough guys. Make a statement that no one would dare face you. It didn't go so well for Kenny. He is the type of person that abuses his girlfriend, but would never face someone that could do him harm. I posted the following, for clarification.

:+Kairo Seijuro , so you are saying that if someone came to you and challenged you to a duel with live blades, you would accept? Am I getting that right? If so, how may people find you? What place should you meet up with them? There are many people in California that might want to take you up on this offer.”

Since then, Kenny has gone silent.

This blog is about the tactic used by many like Kenny, that of making a lot of noise from behind a computer questioning the courage of the person on the other side. While living in Japan, I shot down a lot of claims of people saying they were the inheritors of ancient Japanese arts. I can't begin to count all the times someone in America tried to say that unless I got on a plane from Japan and said that there was no record of their style earlier than the time Reagan was in office to them in person, that I should just shut up.

I have been challenged like this numerous times. I have seen it happen to others hundreds, maybe thousands of times. I am not exaggerating that figure. The tactic of trying to stop debate or criticism is so common that in every group I admin on Facebook I put down the rule that anyone trying to use it is then responsible for the travel expenses of the other person. I advise everyone who runs a martial arts group to adopt a similar policy. It cuts down on the screaming from people who can't argue using facts and logic and lets discussion continue.

The rule about paying travel expenses is important. The issuer always seems to think that the other guy should come to them. In the few cases where people actually have taken that step, the other guy hides and runs away. I know of no case where someone who traveled to see someone in person actually found them willing to fight. And I am aware of a few. People will go from, "No one dares face me" to calling the police as soon as someone shows up. I have seen that a few times.

So, if anyone does issue a challenge to face them, and you do go to the trouble of going to meet them, take screen shots and other records and carry them with you when you do. If you don't, then the police will likely believe the other guy when he says you just showed up suddenly threatening his life. You will look like a crazy stalker trying to ambush someone. Never expect the coward to tell the police the truth. If you have something proving that the other guy invited you to face him, then you are much less likely to spend the weekend in jail.

I personally have a policy of never issuing challenges, but have yet to turn one down. Of course, anyone who challenges me has to come to me. There have been a lot of talk about coming out to Colorado so see me from some people, but so far not a single person has done so. I don't expect that to change.

A variation of this is to imply no one will dare come see you to deflect honest criticism. The tactic is to try to plant the idea that what people point out should not be listened to, because they aren't skilled or brave enough to face them, so ignore all those facts they bring up. For example, noted fraud and incompetent martial artist Christa Jacobson (whose lies I have exposed in other blogs) stated a few months ago that despite what people write, no one has ever come out to see her. Of course, she lives in Kansas, which is a bit far for most people. Someone named Dieter posted a video asking for clarification, as I did with Kenny, that people would be welcome to show up and not have the police called on them. No response from her of course. 

Another Kansas resident by the name of Jeff Brown was once taken to task over his actions (essentially, setting himself up as a teacher of a style of martial arts when he had never even been in the same room with a teacher of that style) responded with the comment, "If you get beyond the keyboard, come see me." Well, someone did start to make the effort to go to Kansas and asked him where they should meet up. Jeff Brown then deleted all his comments welcoming people to come see him and tried to pretend it never happened. Again, Dieter saved a screen shot of his invite.

Let me give a case to illustrate just how silly the whole thing can be. Most readers of this blog are familiar with Ron Collins, the pedophile, fake ninja and convicted criminal. Several times he has talked about maybe coming out to Colorado to challenge me. He has even said that I don't give the address of where I teach on line so as to avoid him showing up and facing me.

He has made similar comments about Barron Sheppard, who lives in Florida,hates pedophiles like Ron and exposes them when he can. Ron lives in West Virginia. Despite the distance, Ron made a big thing about how Barron needed to come up to him and face him in a cage match. The problem was, Ron lied about registering a match. When Barron called the event organizer, he found out that he there were too many obstacles to him taking part because of his age and condition. Since that time, Ron has been making a lot of noise about how Barron backed out. This is of course standard fare for someone like Ron who likes to be an internet bully, but won't actually risk injury. In the past, he has stalked the girl he tried to rape, threatened her family and assaulted her at her work. But he knows Barron would put him in the hospital. So trying to convince his circle of friends that Barron is afraid of him, instead of vice versa, is nothing surprising for him.

In all the fanfare that Ron made after the event, he kind of dug his own grave. You see, Barron knew I was going to do a seminar in Kentucky in October. Barron likes knife work, and I probably know more about the Japanese art of the knife than anyone outside of Japan. I am told by the sponsors of the event that it is only a couple hours from where Ron lives.

So after all the posing by Ron about how he really would have liked to have faced Barron, do you think that he would be willing to take a short drive to confront him in October? Of course not. He is already making excuses as to why he will not do it. As with Ron, many of them seem to involved conspiracy theories. (In one of his stories explaining his attempted rape, he blames his 13 year old victim of "coming on" to him as being part of a conspiracy by the police.) I have gone to the trouble of saying that if Ron, "Ashida Kim" or Frank Dux show up to challenge Barron or anyone else they won't be met with the police. Yet the excuses keep coming from him as to why he will not. I am not challenging him to show up, just making it really easy to see me if he really wanted to as he has been saying for years.

Neither Barron nor I expect Ron to show up and challenge either of us during the event. That is fine with me. I will be teaching and Barron seems eager to learn how Japanese knife work differs from what is done in places like Indonesia. We aren't losing anything by traveling to Kentucky. If by some miracle, Ron does show up and challenges one of us to spar with him, everyone knows he won't last more than a few seconds with either Barron or I. So, he won't show up. Even though we are making ourselves very accessible to someone who has talked about traveling to see us, we know he won't be there.

I not only know this from experience with others like Ron, his own experience shows what he will do in the future. For a long time, Ron made a lot of noise about how if the police came to arrest him, he would resist. He said he had a right to use lethal force to resist unlawful arrest and the conspiracy against him by the police was an example of illegal arrest. Yet, when the police did show up, he surrendered meekly and cried in the back of the police cruiser all the way to booking.

Ron's example is a lesson. People who say, "Come to me and face me" will never be there when you show up. If you surprise them, they will call the police. Don't go to the trouble of going to see them. If you are in charge of a martial arts discussion group, squash any use of this tactic or nothing of note will be debated. If you are ordered to show up and see someone to prove a point, turn it around and tell them to come to see you if they are so bothered by your words. If there is even a chance of them showing up, find a neutral place that you can announce you will be at (like the knife seminar I will teach) that they can find you if they want. Make sure it is a public place with lots of witnesses. Also, make sure you have something else you can do there while waiting because you can bet they will do something else.

Used as a noun, the phrase Walter Mitty is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as "referring to a person who fantasizes about a life much more exciting and glamorous than their own".

I understand that it's in a hater’s blood to hate. Having haters is one way of knowing that I am constantly doing something right. When a hater who fancies himself a celebrity SUPAH secret CIA ninja operative, associates himself with, supports and enlists the help of a person, publicly on Facebook, that has been arrested and served time for trying to have sex with a minor, stalking and threatening to kill police officers it is a very telling  sign of the true nature of their character.

The martial arts world is full of Walter Mittys who have a complete an utter disdain for the ones who have proven and verifiable legitimate backgrounds in the martial arts. I possess something they don’t, which is validation and credentials that prove legitimacy. My accomplishments regardless of how big or small are ALL my own and VERIFIABLE— and that upsets them.  

When haters can’t figure why they lack the things they lack, or how they can get the things they lack, they become very angry individuals. To help themselves cope with this sense of frustration, they hate, they tell vicious lies and cover one lie up with another and then another. They steal. They slander. They threaten. They seeth in their hate. 

Even the most minor of accolades given to me sets them off. These haters never want to hear that I am doing well in anything. So when something positive happens to me, like getting interviewed for example, they are quick to slander and smear my name with out and out lies.

 I got interviewed online about a TV show. Of course the interviewer acknowledged a few of my accomplishments at the beginning of it. The interview was posted to the public, my haters obviously saw it and clicked on the link and read it just days after my interview and began posting about me furiously and vindictively making false allegations and lying.

They became so jealous of a minor acknowledgement by someone else that they began posting their character assassination campaign against me on facebook and other places. This really cast a light on how petty, insecure and deficient these haters really are.

The article was no big deal really, the interviewer gave me some acknowledgement pertaining to my Martial arts background in only a few sentences of an interview that was entirely about a TV series and how good a job I thought the creators do with the show. 

Instead of getting mad at haters for hating, I keep doing what I do. Work, train, spend time with the grand children. In the mean time my haters are busy on the computer thinking of more lies to post online about me.  It is the training, learning and working on myself, my credentials, my accomplishments and setting new goals at 51 years old that bring the Walter Mittys’ hate my way. 


Frank, this is an official letter of  APPRECIATION, I honestly and sincerely want you to be the very first to know that your posting and support of the latest batch of attempts to assassinate my character have paid off and I have to say THANK YOU very very much. Your unwavering hatred and character bashing toward me has indeed NOT gone unnoticed. 

The past couple of days as a direct result of a recent campaign to assassinate my character on your fb page garnered some attention from TV and Movie producers and the like who have found me on facebook THANKS TO YOU. Basically all said that they read your posts and believed the exact OPPOSITE of what you posted on your fb page about me. But that isn't what the THANK YOU is for.

I am THANKING YOU for helping to create more opportunities to work once again in the tv and film industry. It has been years and years since I worked on my last industry job which was the Seaquest TV series. SO again THANK YOU so much for attempting to destroy me online and creating an opportunity to make some extra money in the film and tv industry after all these years.

I honestly had written that entire chapter of my life off. I had figured it was done and over. I would never have thought in a million years I would be doing it again. AWESOME JOB FRANKIE!!!!! AWESOME JOB!!! Thank you for your hate wrenched character assassination diatribes they really paid off bro. I am moving on and upward. I am quite ECSTATIC over this as maybe you can tell.

Learning the Martial arts by DVD and Long distance learning courses: how effective or good are they?

Please keep in mind, that this is a question that has been asked many, many times before. Each time I've given an answer, its been along the same, IMHO, you can't learn much from a dvd/home study course.  Any distance learning system is going to be considerably more challenging and less effective than actual live training.  

Ron Collins who is presently trying to peddle his very own long distance learning program will try to tell you differently. However, fact remains, unless you have a live teacher, someone who can show you things, make corrections, etc, then your learning will be limited only to what’s being shown on the dvd, and how well you can grasp it.

I do feel that dvds are a good reference tool. I have some. I have teachers that I can go to and LEARN from. I'm not learning from the dvd. I recently took up training in Kali and have bought a couple of vids to REFER to and help me in my learning process.

That being said, I've seen different instructional dvds, and saw things that caught my eye.  So, If I was going to invest in dvds then I would only invest in the best ones.   Why invest in a Martial art DVD from a Joe Nobody when you can purchase DVDs from guys like Bill Wallace, the Gracies, Larry Tatum, Jeff Speakman or others like them.

Another point why purchase any DVD from some guy who has no school or dojo or isn’t certified or qualified to teach or with an unverifiable or questionable background when there are so many DVDS out there done by guys who have VERIFIABLE and legitimate backgrounds. I would sooner spend 20 bucks on a DVD by a known martial arts instructor or someone qualified to teach his system than spend twenty bucks on a guy selling a dvd course that can’t even verify he has had ANY training at all.

In my opinion, you need a live body to work with, and a live teacher to teach. There is no replacing a live instructor. I`d take half an hour with a good teacher every six months over all the home study material in the world. I'll go one further on this: If my only option was home-study/video, without time training directly with an instructor, then I would simply do something else altogether. I'd just run, swim, do some strength training, follow a fitness program instead of taking any home study/video course. No one who takes a martial art seriously would solely base all their learning from a video collection...

Find a school and enjoy the ride...

Recently I read some very distasteful promotional shit via facebook, (pictured left) basically martial arts instructors capitalizing or using the latest terrorist attacks as a means to advertise or promote their schools. 

There is no shortage of instructors using terrorist attacks to try to promote their stuff. It is very sick and very misleading. Most people when they hear news about a massacre like a terrorist attack are horrified. However some unscrupulous and irresponsible instructors take advantage of these horrific acts of violence out there and immediately see an opportunity to make some cash. To make matters worse they are not even qualified to teach such tactics. They have no military combat or counter terrorism training or experience to speak or teach from.

How having a black belt in a martial art magically turns people into urban warfare, counter terrorism, or law enforcement experts boggles the mind... As a Martial artist, a guy who served his country as an MP and one time being involved with civilian law enforcement, I am really compelled to say that trying to convince people to combat terrorism via the martial arts is a very stupid idea.

The idea that someone is trying to sell this is leading people to be nothing but cannon fodder.  Martial arts instructors who are attempting to lure people in by building a false sense of security is like being a used car salesman who is selling you a piece of shit car but telling you it is a great car at a great price.

Urban warfare is a very specific kind of warfare and requires very specific training. The type of training that these “anti-terrorism/martial arts instructors” don’t have a real clue about and ARE NOT doing, nor remotely coming close to the type of training it actually requires. Basically unless your training like a combat soldier, a special forces guy etc most are not going to be equipped to deal with a confrontation with terrorist or terroristic acts. Fair play, Honor, respect and other forms of morality that are taught in the martial arts and playing ninja are out the fucking window when it comes to dealing with a person or people who only want to do one thing, to kill as many innocent and helpless people as they possibly can. 

Truth is there are only a handful of people who are  very specifically trained in this type of stuff like military and special forces, Speacial Weapons and tactics and Law enforcement types. So, unless you are HIGHLY TRAINED (I am talking a professional soldier or special forces guy that trains these type of scenarios all the time) in tactical combat, have fire arms training, counter terrorism etc. etc. and willing to pop some scum bag terrorist a new ass hole right in the middle of his fucking forehead with a firearm without batting an eye, then the idea of studying a martial art because you can potentially protect yourself from this goes beyond the instructor being irresponsible it is false and misleading. 

Terrorists are trained killers, so unless you are adequately trained for that type of thing you will be out of your league terrorists are NOT amateurs this isn't a fucking hobby to them or a sport, or a recreational activity. They live and breathe their craft 24/7. 

The whole idea of a martial arts instructor trying to turn some civilian into an anti-terrorist warrior is nothing more than a fantasy. Basically those high level martial arts supah secret steathy ninja skills that these instructors think they have will probably get you killed. 

The notion of cooperation and you will come out alive no longer applies. Most victims of this type attack don't even have that choice. Anyone remember 9/11. They set off bombs in crowded places, walk into buildings such as malls and work places with automatic weapons and open fire on unsuspecting people. These terrorist live, breath and believe in killing the infidels (us) and are well organized and efficient at what they do. So if ANYONE is suggesting to take a martial arts class to fight or defend against terrorism or a terroristic act you best take a long hard look at not only that DELUSIONAL instructor but being foolish enough to believe a little M.A. training goes a long way against a trained sadistic terrorist who wants nothing more than to kill as many people as possible.
