Sorry Mark. I wasn't trying to refute any of your points or put you down. Apologies if it came across that way.
Just pointing out the error for websearch puposes. I've been writing it as 'Lowery' too.

I've already linked to the page where there's a Judo 7th dan claim on the last page in my reply to you.
To be honest though if its in the database, then well, what exactly can you do? Unless there's been a root and branch change and all the people involved in his promotion have been removed, then you're not going to get very far with getting him demoted or the promotion rescinded.
They'll just ignore you no matter how many times you ask for the paperwork. And he'll be able to say, 'well its on the database, I have the certificate- its legit' and you wont be able to get any further.
Having been on the mat with Kodokan and BJA 8th dans, what he shows on the videos is not what I associate with the skill set of an 8th dan. However, if he's got the paper from the right people, you're probably on a hiding to nothing.

It's kind of confusing:
In the text beside the picture he's named as a 8th Dan in Judo and Aikido and a 7th Dan in Jyodo, but in the skillmatrix he's a 8th Dan in Aikido, a 7th Dan in Judo and a 6th Dan in Jyodo.
Is his 7th Dan in Judo also suspecious (probably so, if it's only 11 years between 1st Dan and 7th Dan in Judo)?
Maybe you should go for the claims of 7th Dan instead of 8th Dan, because there's a good possibility that he will counterclaim with the famous "bad communication with the webdesigner" defense if you go after the 8th Dangrade.Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method

Mr. Lowry emailed me this afternoon. He says that he's been having problems logging into the site and he asked me if I could relay this for him, which I have cut+pasted directly from the email.
