1st degree= 3 years
2nd degree = 3 years
3rd degree= 3 years
4th degree= 5 years
5th degree= 5 years
Total of 19 years to get from black belt to 5th degree black belt.
That is not counting the years it takes just to get the black belt.....I say no way....
According to http://www.gracie.com/riofed/beltranking.html
Rickson is a 5th Dan.
Renzo and Royce are 4th Dans
Ralph is a 3rd Dan.
It's simply not possible that this guy is 5th dan under rickson

A 5th degree black belt under Rickson? How old is this guy again?
Not nearly old enough.
From bob's link:
I do this because we have had people go back and delete things and edit their claims.Quote:
Born in Egypt to a karate/ judo world champion father and an actress/ model mother. Ronin started acting at age five and by age seven was doing kids t.v. shows. he then proceeded to do a couple of french movies as a kid. Ronin popularity and his dad's status in the country caused kids to pick on him and his brother all the time, so a discussion was made to send him to his father's school of martial arts. by age 14 Ronin was a black belt in Shotokan karate and a brown belt in kodokan Judo. Ronin became known as the Egyptian karate kid.
Ronin spent his time traveling between the U.S. and Egypt as his dad resides there. he then was sent to japan to continue his education in martial arts and earn his black belt in Judo from the kodokan of japan. he then returned to the California and continued his education there.

Yes, I keep looking where did the Rickson claim appear? I have yet to see it anywhere on the net or either of the websites you posted?
Here is the closest which I attribute to a poorly written website.
Yet, it is corrected and simplified on this page:Quote:

All I can find is references to a 5th Degree Karate Belt. Get me some proof or I am going to change the title. No sense in getting the guy drama if there is no proof of the claim.
Yes, all links I have found of the claim all lead back to bullshido.
