Thanks. I didn't mention it, but the fishiest part is that every instructor boasts in 5 or higher dan grade in like 6 arts, and the local teacher claims to be a shihan. I just had to make sure I'm not being martial-racist by assuming it's some fraud.
Unverifiable style + inflated rank achievement by relatively young teachers...

well, if it looks like it, and smells like it, and tastes like it, just be glad you didn't step in it...
