    EDIT: Whoops, I was trying to find if there was a MABS thread on this guy and I guess I accidentally made this one, sorry.

    Oh well, super boss investigation anyway.

    It's really sad that he decided to resort to underhanded tactics to try and sell himself. I'm assuming even to get 3rd dan (even if it was under Porter), he had to have SOME kind of legitimate skill in judo.

    Has anyone tried contacting this guy? I've always wanted to see what Bullshidoka say when they've been found out. The couple that I've seen respond after investigation were generally still pretending like they were in the right.

    PM Cy Q. Faunce he'd be able to tell you if that happened.

    Do you? Why? That's not very plausible. Porter was pay-to-play.

    Emailed him at multiple addresses. No reply.

    Thank you! I'm hoping to find out more about his military records. Something's not right in there.

    I guess I'm assuming that to even get to the point where he's buying a belt from Potter, he must have some judo experience. Unless, of course, there is evidence that Potter just handed belts out to anyone with a checkbook off the street.

    OK, I know that's a typo, but I just had a couple of images flash through my head:

    So it's one of two extremes, huh?

    Anyway, no comment on Porter for now.

    I'm not saying he must have been an AMAZING judoka, but it stands to reason he had some kind of experience, doesn't it? In any case, you're the one with the information and research, I'm just asking questions. If JFC had absolutely terrible judo, mediocre judo, or above average judo, please say so.

    Not necessarily. In fact, buying a belt is generally not a good sign for one's competence.

    I'm saying your statement doesn't follow. Specifically, there are some events in the USJA involving Phil Porter that you don't appear to know about. They're not germane right now and we don't generally comment on open investigations, but at some point I hope to address these issues publicly.
