    This guy has created and runs a diploma mill!

    And for $75/300 you can have a degree in Martial Arts!

    And all at 38 years old!

    Damn, I'm lazy! I've been doing MA for about 34 years, and I don't have a PHd!

    Looks like a way for a conman to make money off other conmen. Does this Vambudo stuff actually get taught anywhere?

    He has awesome hair though.

    Doubtful. According to the site, he created it himself in 1993 (when he was 24) and awarded himself a Black Belt three years later. Incidentally, he also claims to have received his Black Belt in TKD in 1993.

    Still, he's a lot more specific than most Bullshido artists, in regards to his background. He lists off approximate dates and the organizations for each of his ranks. He also specifies the year, governing organizations, and tournament names for his claimed championships. Generally, liars tend to use generic National or World Champion merits so that they sound more impressive and are harder to disprove.

    Since he's given us all the information we need, it shouldn't be overly difficult to start tracking these organizations down and confirming his credentials. Honestly, from the vids above, I'd wager this dude was as fake as they come. I'm not familiar with any of the organizations he's listed. Anybody recognize them as respectable?

    Okay I know this much he claims:1st Dan Soo Bahk Do awarded by Inter. Tang Soo Do Federation May 2004 (Actively training)

    And in my experience Soo Bahk Do and Tang Soo Do, have seperate international organisations, as they are no longer part of each other.
    So I called
    International Tang Soo Do Federation Headquarters
    Board of Directors

    and spoke with


    President & Founder Choong Jae Nim Chun Sik Kim


    I told him that this guy was claiming he recieved his 1st Dan in Soo Bahk Do, from the Intr. Tang Soo Do federation. He said thats impossible, that they do not and have not given out Soo Bach Do rank ever. He said to try contacting the Intr. Soo Bahk Do HQ...Either way he said he got it from them and thats false...Bullshido strike #1

    This sucks, I really thought this was going to be about fighting Vampyres. Someone make up a MA about fighting Vampyres so we can mock you. Bonus points for references to The Slayer.

    1. Hi my name is Steve NaSalle
    2. My style is Keisatsu Jujitsu in the Molum Kung Fu system.
    3. I reside in Whiteland, IN, USA.
    4. The name of our School is Molum Combat Arts.
    5. I currently hold the rank Shodan (black belt)/Instructor.
    6. Member
    7. Currently I hold memberships in the AFJ, USCMAI, and PKC.

    I dug it out of that forum for you guys it took forever to find either way a Shodan is a Japanese ranking and this guy also claims jujitsu, no where in his credentials does this person claim TKD, however he does say that hes a member of the organization that
    DR SOKE MIKE VAMPLEW Claims to have recieved TKD ranking from.


    ◊ 3rd Degree Black Belt Taekwondo graded by World Martial Arts Masters July 2003 (Actively training)
    http://www.wtkdm.com/ This is the closest hit that I could find for this claim but his description here is pretty vague. **** I think everyone I know is a World Martial Arts Master.

    ◊ 4th Degree Black Belt Taekwondo graded by International Taekwondo Association (Pakistan) Jan 2006 (Actively training)
    As for this claim I couldnt really find any info except that there was just recently added a ITF Pakistan branch and there website is not yet available.
    I will keep digging on some other things after I get rid of this headache.
