What are ur guys opinions about the Soke Councils. There is a whole bunch of them out there and by fraudes joining them (with their inflated ranks) it appears to add somekind of credibility to them. Here is a few of them:
Here is a guy in one of these Soke Councils, and yet no where in his website he says with whom he has trained and what ranks he had achieved. Just popped out a Soke.
Probably no the correct section to post in, itmay have been better suited in YMAS. The general concensus is that Sokeship councils are all fraudulent, started and ran by frauds with only frauds in their ranks.
I wouldn't just throw out the blanket statement that all sokeship councils are ran by frauds and contain only frauds. The words all and always to make an argument require a little proof to back up your point.
I do agree that many sokeship councils appear to have some dubious associations. However, some of these organizations do have legitimate members. Some even appear to trumpet and rely on their known legit members to somehow validate the credentials of the whole organization. If need be I can link some evidence to back up my statements.
What exactly is the deal with legit guys appearing in these Halls Of Fame anyway? Do they even know that their names are on those lists for the most part?
Or is it a case of the orgs writing to them, telling that they've been selected to receive an honorary award and inviting them to a free awards party (with pie and punch) and they're all like 'yeh, okay - sounds fun'.
I bet these HOF's send out ur in the Hall. If they don't repond saying don't put me in, they are instated.
Most of them look like paedophiles on day release.

I have never seen anyone who looks more likely to have committed a sex crime than this guy.
His face is as puffy as his gloves.
He is Grand Master at the buffet line also...
