    karateinstructortraining.com: I probably don't need to say anything more, but I will.

    So, I'm relaxing and checking out things on Facebook this evening, enjoying my cognac, when suddenly I notice something I usually gloss right over: those stupid, targeted ads on the right hand side of FB.

    This one, however, is a doozy.

    WCRB Karate?

    What the fudge is that?

    World Champion Rod Batiste Karate.

Once this is pledged, other self-improvement concepts gradually appear, such as confidence, and self-esteem.
    I like that he put master in quotes. Nice touch.

    No Youtube videos for Rod Batiste or WCRB Karate, no wikipedia entry, and the Google search for both pulls up little more than local services/review sites that don't amount to much- oh, and nothing on a search of our site either, thus this thread.

    The WCRB site seems to have nothing about the program itself, the training, techniques- nothing but a somewhat ominous reference to Behavioral Modification.

    So, there you go. Who wants to make $80K teaching martial arts, no previous experience necessary?

    I want to repost that Jim Carrey video, but it may be in poor taste.

    In 1981 he was known as "Pro Karate's Don Quixote". Apparently.




    Nobody in "Washington DC or the surrounding area" fancy giving this a try? You can submit your "Infromation" on his site and it looks like he'll call you back. Should be an interesting chat if nothing else.

    This just brings about mental pics of this guy weilding home made cattle prods. My Ick alarm is at about 9.5. I bet "Master" (ewe) has zippo in the way of real credentials that would allow him to design a behavior mod program that stood half of a .0001% chance of effecting any sort of long term change. If he did he would have called himself Dr. Batiste. I can't find a copy of his "program", his credentials or the underlying philosophy to his program anywhere. I would hazard it is Highly entertaining if anyone can find

    Found 1 article. Bwahahahaha! This guy couldn't buy a clue. His program targets very stable happy kids in Kindergarden, 1,2, and maybe 3, that come from happy, upper middle-class stable homes. In other words the kids that least need any sort of behavior modification. I would hazard there is still a massive drop out rate within the first 2-3 weeks. I guess that is why he needs so much support. Odd, it's shaped like a pyramid.
