... you can go ahead and claim Sokeship in a fictional martial art.

Only then can you really expect to beat him at his own game.
For those who don't know, Hokuto Shinken is a made up martial art originating from the "Fist of the North Star" manga/anime. Thanks to a bout of insomnia I came across this guy who has repeatedly edited the Hokuto Shiken entry on wikipedia to include a shill for his website offering his "services." He's allegedly a black belt in Brazilian Jujitsu yet spouts the same bullshido a Wing Chun practitioner would say:

His style isn't made for SITUATIONAL defenses. He has been trained to clobber his way out of a situation. Even if there was no gun present and there were three assailants, chances are they would beat him down. Brazilian jujitsu is made for a one on one fight with rules. It's just too slow for multiple attackers, especially when you can't waste time going to the floor.
A Google search turns up a post in Sherdog where he claims to have been trained under Rillion Gracie, but he doesn't say how far that training went.
So out of curiosity, is there anyone out there familiar with this guy or can even vouch for his supposed BJJ blackbelt?

I found him on another forum claiming to be the only true JKD instructor in Miami. He claims Bruce Lee never intended it to be mixed with so many styles. This guy seems legit. HeHe

Wow if he is a fake this is a pretty bold move: Rickson Org patch and a black blet

Wow also his gallery has aSTAGGERING number of certs including a Carlson cert for 2nd Degree BB in BJJ. That seems pretty easy to debunk. http://www.hokutoshinken.com/
Wow there is something even better. He posted a certificate for Department of Homeland Security Anti-Terrorist First Responder. From 2002. It has the wrong DHS logo and according to the DHS site that certification doesn't exist.
I sent an email to the Rilion School in Miami hopefully they will get back to me. Where is Anthony when you need him?

Cert Whiteshark is talking about shows him with rank under Carlson Gracie Sr. and Carlson Gracie Jr. It was given to him in 2007.
Sr died in Feb of 2006. Perhaps it's common to have a dead guy sign your certification, but seems a tad fishy.

"8th Degree Black Belt in the Martial Art of Shikou Waza." What the hell?

Most of those certs are from mutual appreciation societies. A few are from known frauds. A few more seem to be legit JKD world schools. I'm still just stunned by the sheer volume of certificates.

He has a copyrighted character from Eidos Interactive at the very front of his website.
He plays the Terminator theme in th background.
Painful copyright infringement and inferiority complex aside, this guy really wants to love himself.

Interesting, though not at all surprising, that in "affiliates" there isn't a single BJJ school seal.
