I understand where you are coming from but i truly hope you didn't join just so you can bash someone who is obviously young an inexperienced.
I agree with Mark Hill. Your post did come off as a bit arrogant. Not to call you out but in my experience people who come in spouting about there experience, instructor grades and especially their training from or of "ex-military personnel" are exaggerating a bit. Not saying your telling lies to everyone here but that's how you come off when you make these statements.
As for your comments to kempoman. It's hard to make out what you are saying, but understandable considering your state of mind when you wrote it. I can asure you Scott knows what he is talking about. I'm sure he was looking for an answer from the originator of this thread and not AndyJT, who obviously misunderstood Scott's post.
Let's try to keep the tone down and get something useful from this thread or it will go away.
