I dont why people on this site is attacking me! I am not the one that isnt showing respect!
I never never said anything about anyone. I was just stating MY feelings on the High Dan Ranks without meeting the Guidelines!
I dont read the threads here, just the ones that my name was brought up in
Matter of Fact, I sent a E Mail to Sensei Lowry stating he is WELCOME at the camp that I am forming as the Aikido Instructor.
Yes, I got pissed on some the remarks from people on this site!
RANK is important to me, I am sorry some people dont feel the same way.
GUIDELINES and REQUIREMENTS is the Key to Promotions

Prediction from a cynic:
- There is an investigation. Lowry gets punished (stripped of rank, kicked out of the org, etc.) for
a) being the one guy out of tens/hundreds with questionable rank who admitted it
b) telling the internet about it when asked what the deal with that was
- Life goes on.

He didn't get caught he admitted, from the beginning, what happened. Yes, I am now being pedantic because, unlike all of the other "questionable" people, he told the same story in the screen capture, in an email to you and on the thread.
He owned up before the thread even started.

I will be culling this because, the Lowery issue is done, minus some of you wanting him to dispose of the certificate. That's an opinion that can be argued in YMAS. If this going to continue in this fashion, it will be titled appropriately with USJA.
If you are angry and want to complain about my attitude, lack of respect, meanness or other logical fallacies only use this thread:

All of this started because an attempt to resurrect the Spirit of the Eagle judo camp came to your attention. You offered your services AS AN 8th DAN to this attempt.
For me, therein lies the problem. When someone is writing a check to attend a clinic, seminar, or camp that is in part staffed by "8th dan Nick Lowery" they're paying good money expecting instruction commensurate with that grade.
It is extremely disingenuous to market yourself as an 8th dan in one breath then claim that it's just a political paper promotion in the other. Especially when you defended yourself initially in part by challenging anyone who had issue with it to "strip down to our skivvies and see who knows what."

Again, per Matt's facebook snippet - unless there's more of it that we haven't seen, it looks to me that they were talking about Lowry in terms of being an *Aikido* 8th dan initially.
