No, I'm not saying that this is what he has done. Just asking if that is what he said he has done when asked about the material.:dunno: As we don't know what was asked and how it was answered, it is a hard call whether or not he is actually lying, or if he was wiggling around the fact that he was adding something else. I'm no expert in BBT, but the idea of blending the different arts in the Takamatsuden instead of concentrating on just one seems to be a good explanation. Not sure that it is necessary, as if you train them all in isolation, when you move you will naturally combine them, but that is a different story. As an example of Filipino movement, his videos don't impress me but that is neither here nor there. I'm just wondering if he said flat out that he hadn't studied Filipino arts when/if he was asked point blank about what he was teaching. I guess one could argue that ninjas used anything that worked and wouldn't have been tied down to just one way of doing things, so they would have used any art no matter its origins. There is some validity to this idea as they did incorporate technology and strategies(not to mention concrete skills) from China and Korea, however what he is allegedly claiming seems a stretch at best.
