I did not certify Mr Bueno in any system what so ever. He presented a Carlson Gracie Ni Dan certificate as verification to join my organization. He does not represent Yudan Sila Bela Diri.
All certificate that I sale are only templates for schools to make there own certificates with their own seals.

Awesome first posts. Thank you very much. It looks like Lazaro Bueno was collecting as many "Honorary" or association certificates as he could.
As far as BJJ certification goes which is the one that will get most of us annoyed: Rilion Gracie's school responded to two of us and indicated that Lazaro Bueno had trained with them and was a white belt in BJJ.

To those who read this. At Yudans Sila Bela Diri we accept members and recognize their ranks based on the certificates that they provide us. We have since changed the policy based on fake certificates being presented. We do not promote anyone accept those who are my students. I am not a certificate mill. You will not get a promotion certificate from me without training under my curriculum. This guy submitted a certificate as his current rank in BJJ and we issued him Rank Recongnition based on that. It is not certifying him or promoting him. If he is not true then of course it will come to light. All of the Rank Recognition certificates are digital with a digital signature. ALL PROMOTION CERTIFICATES from Yudan Sila Bela Diri have my personal signature and live HANKO SEAL not digital. So for Uncle Skippy that posted this you should have contacted myself at YudanSila to have inquired about Mr Bueno. I will be removing his membership until I can verify his credentials are actually 100% true. Mr. Bueano does not represent anyone at Yudan Sila. Membership and Student is not the same. Membership is no different from having a membership at the local YMCA. Membership just means if he wanted to go to any Yudans functions he would show his membership ID which he Mr. Bueno does not have. He opted out of membership credentials. All my official members wear the Yudan Sila Bela Diri Patch. Anyone wanting more information may contact me at 917-338-1569 / You can also meet and train with me in Harlem NY
This is how I got involved with Mr Bueno which was through Facebook and this is his original email which I keep on file for all applicants.

Carlson Gracie Junior called me today (at a terrible time, naturally) about something else entirely (wanted to see if I was interested in hosting a seminar with a friend of his), and I remembered to ask him at the end of the conversation if he'd ever heard of Lazaro.
It shouldn't be any surprise that he said "I never heard of the guy." Since I'm still half-convinced this guy's entire thing is an elaborate troll job for the world, and the dude doesn't have any students, I didn't give Carlson any details on why I was asking, just said "it came up."

A few weeks ago, I emailed Professor Romero 'Jacare' Cavalcanti with regards to Mr. Bueno's claim to training at Alliance BJJ in Miami, as documented here:
In my initial email I enquired as to whether Lazaro Bueno had attented Alliance BJJ and trained under Professor Cavalcanti - and if so, the extent of this training, and whether or not Mr. Bueno had been awarded any rank in his time there.
I received a reply a couple of days back. With Prof. Cavalcanti's kind permission, I can quote the following for you:
I don't remember Lazaro Bueno being my student, maybe he trained with me for a short period of time that's all.

Is he actually teaching or offering classes? I thought the main reason the thread fizzled was that, despite the certificate farming going on, he didnt actually offer any instruction at the moment.
actually his ultimatebodyguard site does suggest he does private lessons now
