I thought it was pretty much common knowledge that Sokky was a judo man.

I don't think that Brian was referring to BJJ. We know that many MMA guys are black belts in BJJ.

yes, as i said in my initial post. Many fighters are BJJers.

Marcel,

Thanks for the link! Where does it say Chuck was 4th dan in anything?

Chuck says in his book (I've read it a couple times) that he eventually tested for his black belt in Koei-Kan Karate under a Mr. Jack Sabat after only a couple years or (I forget exactly how long). That style uses traditional Okinawan katas and techniques. And a little more extensive grappling methods from ju jutsu or judo it looks like (I saw a video about it recently). So he was at least a shodan. I think it was pretty soon after that he began with Hack.

Does Hawaiian Kempo count as a TMA? Liddell is 4th Dan in that style and it is an art which he practices to this day.




I'm not saying he isn't, I just haven't read anywhere where it says he is 4th dan in anything. You think he might mention that in his biography.

I don't see how he still practices any TMA art anymore. He has to train for mma.

References?

Like I said, he mentions in his biography that he was a black belt in Koei-Kan. That is a traditional form of Karate.

Storm,

I know this already. I was asking medulanet where he got his information that Chuck is a 4th dan and still practices karate.

I don't remember where I first heard about Chuck being 4th Dan, but here is an announcement about when he received his purple in BJJ and it also mentions his 4th Dan.

http://fightsport.com/fightsport/news/2003_07_13_fightsport_archive.html

And regarding him still practicing, Hack is still his trainer and trains him for his fights to this day and Hack's style is Hawaiian Kempo to this day.
