Is this capture guy who necroed the thread deluded or just a second rate shill for Hackworth?
We may never know. However, I have my suspicion that it is a woman, not a guy. There is this girl named Sophie Song-Love who seems to be a huge nut hugger of Hackworth. Funny how the person popped on here spat out more half truths and then quickly disappeared. I guess they really did not have the facts as straight as they had hoped.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. I found the thread while searching on this guy after seeing some of his obviously ego inflated claims on youtube and on his website (my personal fave is the one where it starts out by saying "Why is Hackworth the most respected martial artist in the US...?" and then follows with a demo that has nothing to do with him.) It is sad that people like him have successful schools while honorable teachers are struggling out there.
Ahh yes Richard Hackworth I'm familiar with this individual. He has been widely accused of giving out fake Hapkido certificates and I caught glimpse of him once at my first and final shootfighting belt test, which went sour in a hurry
