Roger Siggs is the curriculum director of the Rocky Mountain Swordplay Guild and a founding Rector of the Tattershall School of Defence. Formerly the fencing/martial arts instructor for Glendale Community College, Mr. Siggs has been training in the martial arts for over 25 years, and has been awarded black belts or instructor status in several Eastern martial arts, most notably Tomiki Aikido, Kyokushinkai, and a Menkyo Kaiden license (license of full transmission) for the instruction of Daito-ryu Aiki-Jujutsu.

Mr. Siggs has focused the majority of his research and training to the Western Arts, focusing on the Close Combat dagger and grappling methods, and the Italian fighting arts, as well as the development of the 'Joining Cultures and Methods Way', combining Asian and Western martial arts into an integrated system of self-defense and combative theory. His formal training in the Arte of Defense and Western Martial arts began approximately 11 years ago, and had focused primarily on Italian 16th-17th century Rapier technique. He is a former member of the Society of American Fight Directors, and brings a broad base of teaching experience in the fields of combative application, research and historical interpretation in addition to his martial arts background.

If you're in the area, people, go to this workshop. Roger is a man who really knows his stuff when it comes to unarmed and close quarters combat. Wish I could go.

His license was called into question on another forum, so he has apparently withdrawn all claims to a Menkyo Kaiten in Daito-ryu Aiki-Jujutsu. Exclamation

I am one of the people involved in the questioning of Mr. Siggs' Daito Ryu license on the e-budo forum.

The opinion on that forum is that he has done the right thing in taking responsibility to correct this situation.

Hopefully people will still attend this event and give him an opportunity to make things right here as well.

He is not taking the easy way out of this. Which does show some character.
