"Captain" Chris Pizzo Schmizzo
« on: July 23, 2008, 01:26:21 PM »

Looks like our good friend, the fake Captain Shit-stain McPizzo has duped the folks at NAPMA (that's National Association of Professional Martial Artists, btw). He is speaking at their big Etreme Success Academy in Sept.

http://www.extremesuccessacademy.com/speakers.php

I guess in the eyes of NAPMA, you don't have to be legitimate to be successful. What a message they are sending by having this huckster on their event!

Another delusional knuckle head.
Another person who people raise up to be seen as legit when in fact he is another con man.
This is how it all happens,some group or organization believes the stories and never checks the facts and makes these people appear to be legit,then they just keep on rolling along sucking people in and ripping them off.

I have seen some of his super secret moves outlawed by the Military,lol,what a bunch of BS.
The deadly eye poke
the deadly front kick
the deadly hammer fist
the deadly tiger claw

Here is one of his deadly booklets:

ROTFLAO!

Pizzo is not dumb. He is following in tried and true footsteps of good con men with canned sales crapolla. Bullshit.

I wonder if Pizzo will lecture on the top secret, super Nazi fighting course discovered by the GI invasion? Was that the same cave where they found Hellboy?

Ha!  Probably.

Yes, NAPMA lost contact with reality a while back and is struggling to get into the scene.

Remember Tampa?

Good ol' Capn' Chris sent me an e-mail pimping "speed seduction techniques" or some such crap. Just when you think he can't sink any lower.
I can't believe NAPMA let him in? I always liked their operation before John Gruden got booted out.

Called Napma today and asked them if they had done any kind of background check on Captain Shitstain.

Of course not. I informed them of his phoney claims of military service, Lt. X stuff and the whole shebang. The fellow I spoke with had no idea about this, and said that he was going to forward it over to his supervisor for "further action"...whatever the fuck that means.

I told him if they cared one ounce about the credibility of their organization, they'd dump this guy like a bad habit.

Something will come of it?

Doubt it.

"Loved by the thousands of soldiers, police officers, doctors, lawyers and regular folks he has trained, Captain Chris Pizzo is a selfdefense instructor who has become an icon and leader in the self-defense industry. A U.S. Grappling Gold Medal Champion, Chris has a remarkable 147 trophies and medals in karate, judo, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and boxing. Pizzo will share his personal story of triumph in the martial arts with conference attendees."

I've seen his top secret training cd training package.  The guy does not execute basic judo hip throws at more then an Orange belt level.  For example when demonstrating a throw on a TALLER individual he did not drop his hips lower then his partners, screwing up his throw.  This was a totally compliant partner by the way, so he should have been able to get it correct.  So with such crappy skills, how did he earn any real medals in Judo?

If anyone is interested I'll post links to two critical reviews of Top Secret Training.  It was truely a tardtastic learning experience.

Mario & I tried watching Guerrilla Grappling.  We were terribly distracted by Pizzo's lack of delivery so we started counting how many "alright"s & "ok"s he did in a matter of minutes.  From the time it took Mario to check his computer in the living room and come back to the guest room (about 30 seconds?) Piz had mumbled 5 alrights and 3 oks.  W decided t punctuate all of our conversation from Saturday to Sunday.

Alright?  OK?

I don't know the context of the usage here, but in the 1990s martial arts videos advertized as "guerilla" meant that they were home movie quality, usually just copied on a home VCR, and often with hand-written labels. :D

Lol slightly off topic, but I remember when I was 5 or 6 years old when I first heard the term "Guerrilla", as in guerrilla warfare. At the time re runs of the TV show of planet of the apes was on. I remember asking my dad if we were actually at war with apes and would we be ok!

I was around the same age, and the adults were talking about the guerillas fighting Marcos, and also the book, "American Guerilla in the Philippines."  I also had "Planet of the Apes" ideas but my dad explained to me what a guerilla was.

What was scary, though, was that just a few years ago I was talking to a girl in her mid-20s, and I mentioned guerilla warfare and she asked me how they train gorillas to use guns and fight.  :o

See Keith .. It was alright ok, It was bad technique alright. We call this problem a "communication twirk". OK, Alright we saw it and it was boring ok. it was alright for the first opening credits ok. We were going kick the screen in alright. Ok Ok Alright and thats all we heard alright. It was like jerking off with a cheese grater. Alright it was painfully amusing. But so annoying alright. This is how he talks every 3 word is alright ok or ummmm. We couldnt stand it alright. I was so annoyed by the over usage of the word alright and ok.
He look like a Jersey shore guido that should wear a wife beater shirt.

It was annoying very very very very irratating. We gave it about 3 mins and turned it off. Then the rest of the weekend Geoff and I were making fun of him. With responses like alright and ok. ::) ::) ::) ::)

It was one of the worst instructional i have ever seen.

There was so many alrights and ok it almost seemed like a parody or joke.

It was supposed to be in September, 2008.

Just curious - know anybody that went? Did it even happen at all?
(if there weren't enough pre-regs, it might not have "made.")
I know Pizzo was supposed to have a big free seminar in Florida, maybe it was in Sept. (I can't recall) and it was canceled. Its hell when you have to cancel a free seminar. Even the homeless need to get inside and use the restrooms sometimes.

Does anyone believe that Pizzoro made 8 million dollars a year?
And is the prized darling icon of all those thousands of soldiers, people, etc?

NAPMA 2008 happened,but I do not see Pizzo listed as having been an attending participant.

I did find a Pizzo Bio which now claims that he was in ROTC when he came down with a form of cancer.
Wonder how this short ROTC experience allowed him to become a LT in charge of teaching killing techniques which were too DANGEROUS for the Army, to now Capt Chris ??

8,000,000 dollars a year LOL,LOL
We are to believe he sold 27,000 of his 300 dollar tape sets a year ???
(I have the clips l,what a load of crap)

Here is this BS artists New Self Described Bio:

I have written on this site,and others,for a long while that Pizzo NEVER served in the Military ,Period.

I do not know what the NJ group said as some said he never served ,some said nothing,they just wanted him forgotten.(similarly to Damien  Ross)

Pizzo's sales pitch was his being an Officer in the Army,serving in intelligence,and having tried and learned various arts ,learning and developing the LETHAL Killing tactics the army was afraid to touch,lol.

Now he comes out with his several weeks of ROTC as his complete ARMY Time.
(how does this equate to LT and Capt Rank ?
Get this pony for cashing in on stolen Valor.
(probably why he has come clean now,afraid of prosecution,most likely never served the several weeks in the HARD ROTC Army training claimed either)

PURE BS
And NAPMA brings this Phony BS artist in as a subject matter expert in the field of Marketing Martial Arts ??

Damian Ross was as valued a member of the "Wolf Pack!" (grrrrr.... grrrrrr....) as anyone.  All he did was make some money.

Then he was disowned AND suddenly classed as someone without the required training or experience.

Did the "Wolfpack!" (grrrrrrr.... grrrrrrrrrrrrrr) have a time machine?

My understanding is that Carl felt sorry for Ross.
That Cestari taught him his version of WWII combatives and his version
of Jujitsu.
My understanding is Ross actually spent little time with the Wolf pack.
Ross wanted money so Carl ranked him in jujitsu so Ross could open his school.
Shortly after Ross got permission ,more or less,to sell Carl's material.
Ross then went into business with Pizzo,against Carl's wishes.
This was seen as a student and supposed friend taking advantage of a person who cared about him,wished him well and a Friend who also happened to be this guys instructor.
Ross screwed Cestari,Pizzo supposedly screwed Ross,so the circle of screwing goes.
Now Pizzo is A self proclaimed subject specialist,the subject being Martial Arts and Marketing.LOL.
