I had been looking into this guy. I got the Raven tactical group to publish a clarification that was targeted at him and a few other idiots. it said that non one who claims to be an associate is authorized to train others in any part of their system. It also clarified their instructor program and said that no more certificates would be issued just for going to seminars.
We also had contact with the Gracie school he was claiming and he had only trained for 6months to a year. He is a white belt in BJJ.
I essentially stopped because he was taking down certs left and right and appears to not actually teach anyone except in a personal training capacity.
Just wanted to follow-up, I have confirmed with Kara-Ho HQ that Lazaro's Kempo instructor Guy Delahousse was only briefly in our system in the late 1980's/early 90's and never received even a shodan from us, Lazaro himself obviously never achieved dan ranking from us either.
I have sent emails to two different addresses for Lazaro as well as contacting him through his FB page advising him to edit his "bio" to remove any mention to his "rank" in Kara-Ho Kempo. No response as of yet-
They don't understand that they are victimizing themselves and others. They don't understand they are hurting themselves and others. Instead, they cast aside criticism as jealousy in order to keep up the delusions of grandeur.
Ever since Hokuto Shinken's recent inception, critics have gone mad to the point of even ridiculously speaking lies, slander and producing false documents. Learn why others are trying to keep this info behind closed doors!
Now, it has become highly controversial and highly in demand by profesionals in the field.
Some people live their lives in other's shadows and hide behind keyboards and blogs, others live the life, train hard and become respected in society. Jealousy and envy get you nowhere...Hardwork, dedication and honesty takes you to the top! Join the team today!
If he thinks that reverse psychology even remotely works he should ask that question to Ralph Severe and Master Po.
MABS thread no silliness allowed unless you are the subject:
Guilt by association and false legitimacy. This way, everyone is eventually connected and people can make a better informed decision through google.
