Just because I know, everyone should know
Why do I need to understand this? It has no bearing on how the Paul Cave website is worded. That's like me telling you to stop posting because in 82 I was a martial artist as well. It has nothing to do with someone investigating the claims on the website! This is why it is an appeal to authority. You are saying "look, I have a Black Belt for 32 years how dare you question me and mine." People questions kings, queens, and presidents. You, your Black belt, and your 39 years experience can be questioned as well.

Wow you are full of strawmen and Red herrings today.
or ARROGANCE let alone TESTOSTERONE ATTITUDE found in adults, especially men.
Did I say they mean nothing? NOPE. I said YOUR CLAIM OF 39 YEARS IS A SEMANTIC APPEAL TO AUTHORITY. There is that testosterone, arrogance and ego in your words you are talking about. Trying to make your appeal stronger by counting experience at three years old. Welcome to Bullshido where only a few arts with Junior Black Belts are respected. Oh and kids have all of that as well. Just like adults, it is in varying degrees. All children are not the same and nor do they all learn the same.
So please don't create a idea that small childrens years mean nothing while learning the arts.
Already discussed in another thread and not relevant to Paul's website or your current defense of said person.. This thread is about Paul Cave and his claims. Oh and his lack of credentials in certain arts. Oh and the people, from your art that have multiple accounts posting in this thread. You want to defend him post his credentials and quit talking about yourself.
For the record what style do you do (or styles) and how many years of teaching and training have you done ?
No one is missing the point. Someone asked about his BJJ credentials and they were not provided. That person found a legit BJJ school, with credentials, and didn't' join.
we are missing the point
THIS is the original question.
