    Couldn't it also be said that things will never change if people don't do anything about it?

    Ah, I dunno. I'm not Judo.

    You haven't read ****. I do think fake, illegally obtained, pay for play, bullshit rank is an issue. I don't think smear campaigns, strawmen, and other asshatery are conducive to the thread. It is funny how being polite and manner-able means you accept what has happened.

    This will all be culled so, you can create all the strawman arguments you want from your stupid ass soap boxes.

    Mark Tripp came to this Site and brought up a SERIOUS issue about rank. What did he get in return? Negativity I am not going to fall in that path.

    Mark Tripp is VERY Passion about Judo.
    Yes, he can be voiceful but, his HEART is in the right place. He cares about Rank and so do I. Why belittle him?

    Yes, the Rank System is failing. Why? It has STANDARDS in place.
    Just needs to be ENFORCE that ALL Requirements are met for all those attaining rank.

    It is VERY Simple so, why isnt it working?

    Rank HistoryDateArtRank4/27/2004JudoRokudan4/16/2003JudoGodan4/22/1999JudoYodan7/7/1993JudoShodan
    Shodan in 1993 and then jumps to Yodan in 1999 and then 4 years later a Godan and only 1 year later a Rokudan
    What are you implying? That there's a Rokudan posting on this thread that hasn't got the Time In Grade?

    BKR is a Sandan and not affiliated with the USJA.
    Judoka_UK is a Shodan, British and therefor connected with a NGB of the UK.
    MTripp is a Rokudan, but he's not the person who would take shortcuts....
    So the only other candidate would be warchief, while I don't know who he is and what his grade is, he is a member of the USJA and BOD. So we may assume that he's a Judoka and probably of high grade.
    But are you 100% sure (proof) that warchief is the username of the Rokudan that you have found in the database of the USJA? 100% proofable!

    This is like a Wing Chun lineage battle, but it is Judo.

    This cull is sad.

    Judo politics can get pretty fucking vicious.

    Hence why someone who knows about how vicious Judo politics are, starting a thread they know is going to stir up the pot and which only had one real conclusion - taking on the USJA ranking edifice - was always out to cause a shitstorm and very little else.

    Having heard the stories of my teacher, I know that there are politics in every NGB around the world and that some politics carry from ones country NGB to another countries NGB.
    Judo isn't so cut & dry like everyone believes.
