    Ah, okay...gotcha. It still baffles me that he did this. I would have thought someone as egotistical as this guy is would invent his own MA name.

    And I'm seriously loving the whole tying in of born again Christian thing with the hitman/assasin thing. Consistency dude. Way to Bruce Downey it up.

    Sorry to intrude, but two questions:

    1. Is this the only thread on the matter? I think we had a longer one somewhere.

    2. Are you guys sure this isn't a joke? This frankly seems so retarded, it's hard to take it seriously.

    At the first, I thought it might be a joke. His www.hokutoshinken.com site is loaded with so much awful that I said to myself, 'No...this has got to be some joke. This guy isn't even a troll...he's really trying to get us to laugh at this'.

    But from what I've read from his Facebook page and other websites, I decided this isn't a joke...the guy is just a complete fucking tool who is trying to sell himself in the most half-assed and fraudulent way possible.

    This was the original thread:http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=106552. IIRC, IIF culled it and put it over here once it was determined that Bueno actually had lied about having a black belt in BJJ in addition to having been found to be lying about other systems he supposedly trained in.

    Okay, thank you. I will see what I can find about him.

    Still, hard to believe this is not a joke.

    Lots of us thought it was a joke. If ALL of his stuff was made up and he was just a whack-a-do with no students no one would care. The problem is that early on he had multiple certificates from real and verifiable groups that did NOT give him permission to teach anything.

    Sure, but even so - could he have put them up as a hoax?

    Just following MABS, one can easily learn how to fake certs of all kind/what certs are the ones one SHOULD fake to give an idea of legitimacy.

    What I wonder, though:

    The guy has over 4,000 facebook friends.

    Assuming that he doesn't use mass-friending, like, for game applications like Farmville, the number of people he is connected to likely suggests that he has access to a fairly wide audience.

    So, unless we're dealing with a complete lunatic who friended 4k people to spam them with his megalomania, where does this audience come from? Like, is his exposure to the MA world really completely via the web?!

    If you go through both threads, you will see he has multiple instructors that used him for rank. It is a good little market when you really think about it. You have no rent, you record in a park or basement, no utilities, cheap websiteand facebook is free. Ebay takes a percentage and you have no students to worry about. There were hundreds of people buying the ebay certs and dvd/vhs no telling how many paid full price on his website. Seriously, if he did that for years he probably made and extra $5-6,000 a year doing nothing.

    We have no clue how many purchased through his crappy website.

    Minus a few posters, tell me who couldn't use that extra money?

    Hiro, he had trained or associated with these groups and then went off to claim rank and pretend to teach. That isn't a hoax that is pure Bullshido.

    I have 2 facebook friends in common with this guy (both of whom I know and train with or have trained with in real life), neither of them know him nor have any idea about him other than the fantasy he presents on Facebook, both of them also have several thousand friends it's just a Facebook thing where some people gather as many 'friends' as possible.
