Now "sharing his knowledge" is a very odd way to put "teaching other Americans his martial art", but it makes sense that you'd use such phrasing, since the linked-to PDF doesn't actually contradict anything Rice claimed. In fact, it says:
So, which other Americans did Lalic teach? Zero point zero zero. He performed some demonstrations in several American states. Believe it or not, attending a demo and sharing one's thoughts doesn't actually rise to the level of becoming some teacher's student. Otherwise, every human being that ever went to go see a Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown is a student of the lion dance and any number of gongfu styles. Anyone who wandered by any park in the morning and stopped to look at the old ladies waving their arms and dipping at the hips are students of taiji now.
Forget YMAS, this thread belongs in Trollshido.

Chen Xiang. He even touched me, and told me stuff, like "Slow, slow." I would never call myself a student based on that single seminar experience, and were I his student I wouldn't consider seminar attendees to be his students.
Your bit about seeking Larry's attention is ridiculous. There's already a Trollshido thread for that.

These guys have the upper hand on you when bickering because of that.
What you don't think any of them have erectile disfunctions or their wife left them for another woman? Or they gambled away all their savings? Or they got fired from their jobs for being incompetent? Or lost their kid in the subway? Or even all of the above?
They know about your failures so they can use them against you, you don't know about theirs.
Stay anonymous man this is the internet, you ain't gonna get much useful advice if you post your story here anyway. Try maybe asking your friends or family.
You're just going to find a lot of piss-taking and distasteful comments online.
I guess what I'm trying to say is: Be cool and be careful what you say.
Noone's better than you although they make it seem like the case.
...And you seem to be buying it.
Everyone has their insecurities and their mistakes.
Everyone here just happens to know about yours.
Just be cool man.
I know that was a long time ago but **** I noticed that everytime you bicker with someone or similar you get this **** back in your face.
Very...dishonorable. To bring someones failures to their face at every opportunity.
I guess this is offtopic but we're in trollshido anyway.
Good luck with your investigation man I hope your questions are answered.

And that's even assuming that a) "Bill" is telling the truth and b) that "Bill" didn't take his training sometime after Rice put up his website* and c) that "Bill" isn't the second American referred to by Rice and d) that "Bill" is American.
*Believe it or not, Rice isn't obligated to set up a series of Google Alerts in order to find out if someone else from the US trained with this guy, and then change his website to read "One of only three, no, uh...four, well four and a half because that guy was only in town for a week" etc etc.

So let's see if I understand what is going on.
A previous poster named "Son of Rex" says Rice told him "________________"
This was a lie because "________________________"
Rex will not elaborate or provide any more details. True False
You have not yet talked to Rice to see if he admits or denies he said "_____________"
You do not have any other evidence through social media, websites, etc that Rice claimed "_________________"
Okay, while it is true we consider verbal statements made to third parties, its the weakest form of evidence one can use. So if you want to be taking seriously you need to find more support, otherwise Rice says "I never said it" and the investigation goes no further.

" I'm pretty sure SoR and/or Larry's wife manage his site", " I felt it was implied", " I took that to mean"," I seem to recall"... this is some of the vaguest nonsense I've ever read on Bullshido. Dude, you've got nothing more than supposed statements from an alleged student and have apparently made no effort to get straight answers from the man himself (and no, sending Sifu Rice an email to let him know you've already called him out is NOT due diligence). This isn't just a witch hunt, it's an incompetent one.
