Clad in a red gi, Sensei Ed Brizzolara removed his shoes and stepped onto the mat at his dojo, Kengo C.M.A., and addressed the line of smiling, squatting youths: "Are you ready for Saturday?" In response, the class belted out a resounding, "Osu" . The class of eight students has been preparing for the dojo's grand opening Saturday, where they will ...

You certainly have alot to say about Sensei Ed. Why not share a little bit about yourself?
Do you have your own school?
How many students do you have?
Are you affiliated with any martial arts organization or federations?
What tournaments have you or your students been in?
What is your system?
Do you have a website?
People can go to Sensei ed's website; www.kengocma.com or stop in and watch him teach his students in order to judge for themselves.
Can people do the same with you?
Why are you hiding your identity?
You are Police man or women???all this question for what?
DO YOU WANT PRACTICING OR NOT ? THAT IS THE GOAL????
It is for adults or not???

ed knows who I am. I dont have to prove myself to you. Ask ed to show you his certificates, thats the the issue here. Standard tactic, accuse the accuser.

I am not buying into your game. ASK TO SEE HIS CERTIFICATES..

Yes, Donald P. Jeffrey, I know who you are www.ki-development.com now everyone who reads this blog will know who you are and do a thorough check on your credentials.
Don't you think this silly vendetta that you, your wife Patty, Don and Laura Taylor and my ex-wife AnnMarie Nuti started eight years ago has gone on long enough? I understand AnnMarie is still harboring anger over the outcome of our divorce because she didn't get all that she felt she was entitled to and the judge through out all of her silly allegations of me abusing her. I also understand how hard it is for her to convince her friends of these so called offenses when I am happily married to the love of my life and prospering while she is not.
While living as your neighbor in Brick New Jersey, You, Patty, Don, Laura and AnnMarie harassed Nancy and I for over three years by peeping in our windows, keying Nancy’s car, leaving your dog's poop on our welcome mat and throughout our driveway in the middle of the night, stealing money out of my truck, killing our bushes with Don's pool chlorine, putting sexually profane notes in our mailbox for Nancy to find, etc. You won...we finally threw in the towel and moved away...far away.
You are a cop in Edison New Jersey; that's a joke...you have been on the force for what...20 years and still no promotion. The cops I know in your department don't like you and think you are a "psycho". They won’t work with you because they don’t trust that you will back them up on a call.
You claim to be a martial artist; that's a joke. Your self-proclaimed expertise in the Martial Arts is as you so eloquently put on your website is from reading books and watching videos. I saw you on your front lawn in a big diaper dancing with a sword while your wife took pictures. The only thing you accomplished that day was to scare the neighborhood children. If you are such an expert in Ki then why are you on numerous meds for pain and depression? Why can’t you quit smoking? Isn’t Ki all about mind over matter?
You consider yourself to be "enlightened"; that's a joke. How enlightened can you be to carry on like this? This is grade school mentality. A real man does not act this way.
Isn’t it sheer jealousy that feeds your fire?
Are you still mad that we reported your harassment to Internal Affairs? We weren’t the only people to complain about you. Your file is pretty thick with complaints and psych exams.
Maybe you just need to get off the meds; you’ve been on so many for so long it’s no wonder that you are psychotic. Take a fresh new look at your life. The Lord can heal all those who come to him in prayer...why not pray for healing and guidance? The Lord is the one who holds the real power. Maybe you should change your friends too. I know how depressing it can be hanging out with those people. Try finding a hobby that will bring you “happy thoughts”.
At the bottom of your website you admit that your Ki is "for entertainment purposes only" That’s the only truth you have spoken since I’ve known you.
I have taken off your cover of anonymity and you have all been exposed for who and what you really are.
This will be my one and final response to your childish behavior. Now I am getting back to the wonderful life and prosperity the Lord has blessed me with.
You really are a joke, thanks for the laughs.

I lived on the same street as ed. Being a martial artist for some 40 yrs he asked me this question back in 2001 or 2002. "I never studdied martial arts before, what would be a good system to study ?"
Now he claims to be a Soke, Soke is more then just a title that denotes a founder. It must be earned through many many years of training, not 8 yrs. Also, I know he was no more then a green belt last year so where is all of his certificates?
If he claims to have studdied for over 20 yrs, he should have alot of certificates, ask to see them.
You are paying good money for lessons from an expert ? You have the right to know if he is the real deal. Contact any associations he claims to have rank from and verify it. Then you will know the truth.
If he is legitimate, he wont mind, in fact he would be proud to supply the information. If he is a fraud, he will hide it and make up stories.
There are no government regulations for the martial arts or rankings. Don't get taken....
--

You talk about regulation of what??????
It exist more as 400 federations very regulated in this country of mess up specialy in martial arts good luke with your stuff and so many are so nasty or calling mediocre....!
I received long ago an offert for being 9 degree black belts officialy by pay $ 5000,oo for an diploma.
I say to myself americans are really nuts to die.
And what is the value of the diploma?????? HUH. Good for lazy people! I means the adults one.....But then I did know adults was not doing it martial arts.......I was soo ignorant in this time about Americans cow boys!....ahahahahah now is only for me a big joke!

Any one wanting to know the truth about Ed Brizzolara should contact Shidoshi Manniel, Mr Manniel a retired NYPD police officer who during a long lawsuit investigated Mr Brizzolara and could not find in any federation any dojo any school any martial arts system ever heard or had any records of Ed Brizzolara studying with them except a green belt in Seigido ryu in New Jersey. Mr Brizzolara dropped the lawsuit on mediation without any money's being passed because he wouldn't want what Mr Manniel had found out to come out on trial to expose Mr Brizzolara because it would become public information and Mr Manniel has all copies of paperwork from the entire lawsuit.
