You're right. I'm extremely jealous. I just want what you've got. Please tell me about all the rigorous demands I'll need to prepare my mind and body for in order to become a prestigious Black Scorpion ninja. Oh, I'm sorry. Was that honorary?
What about an Associates of Science in Counter Terror Tactics? That sounds like it must have involved extensive education, preparation, practice and evaluation. I'm sure you must have some interesting stories to tell about your time pursuing that degree. Let's hear it.
Look buddy - you're full of ****. You know it and we know it. I'm sure you've had some training of unknown quality and quantity. You would have been better off if you had left it at that. Instead you chose to inflate your qualifications with fifty pounds of worthless certifications which you proudly framed and hung in your gym.
You sought out those worthless certificates and displayed them boldly. You listed every one of them on your website. You did those things in order to enhance your image and credibility and to bring attention to yourself. Your image and credibility are in the gutter, but you did get the attention you were after. Congratulations. 1 out of 3 ain't bad.

Your military background, accomplishments, career, etc are not the point. There are plenty of veterans, career security professionals, and altogether awesome folks on Bullshido.net.
What is the point is that you live in an egocentric, delusonal fantasy world where you have more questionable ranks, accolades, and self-serving and totally unsubstantiated "credentials" than anyone else on the planet Earth.
You make Ashida Kim look like he could be totally legit, because he ONLY claims to be a magical ninja master with death touch and mind control skills.
The old martial theme of "emptying your cup" seems lost on you. Your ego isn't just writing checks...it's the LendingTree.com of bullshit.

It turns out the Black Scorpion Ninjutsu Society is founded by the world renowned "Ninja Bob" and potential membership in this elite organization is restricted to people who are 14 years or older and have $20.
Also of note is that you must request membership from the BSNS international headquarters, which is apparently a PO box in Nashville.

By coincidence I'm watching "Return of the Jedi" on UK TV at this very moment. Yoda indeed.
I marvel at his skills (OK, I didn't read it as it was the proverbial wall of text).
Frankly I have enough trouble trying to stay on top of Syllabus as it is never mind finding the time to address all my shortcomings by training in other arts...

Milwaukee, Wis., November 28, 2012 -- The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is alerting small businesses and consumers to be wary of a new vanity awards program linked to the notorious US Commerce Association.
The program, operating in Wisconsin as either the Madison, Milwaukee, Appleton or Green Bay Award Program, notifies businesses via emails that they have been selected to receive a Best of [local city name] Award for their “exceptional marketing success.” The award program honors “the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the [local city name] area.” The BBB believes the program’s actual purpose is to persuade businesses to spend $80 to $180 for an award plaque or hand-polished crystal trophy.
The emailed press releases announcing the awards are virtually identical to releases sent by the US Commerce Association, a Los Angeles-based business with a history of soliciting businesses for awards. The US Commerce Association has an “F” rating with the BBB, the lowest possible.
The new awards program uses the website www.awardprogram.org (or local.awardprogram.org) and customizes the name of each award, depending on the recipient’s location. An aromatherapy business in Boca Raton, Fla., recently was notified it had received a 2012 Best of Boca Raton Award in the “cosmetics category.” A car wash business in Minneapolis recently was awarded a 2012 Best of Minneapolis Award in the “automobile washes category.”
Randall Hoth, Wisconsin BBB president/CEO, said the awards are potentially misleading to both businesses and consumers, who may not know how the awardees are chosen.
“Strong, ethical businesses should refrain from publicizing these awards on their websites or on other marketing materials,” he said. “It could backfire on them if customers look at these awards with skepticism and cynicism.”
An Internet search found several businesses publicizing the awards on their websites. Among them:
A Goodyear, Ariz., minister who was named a winner of the 2012 Best of Goodyear Award in the “psychics & mediums” category.
A West Haven, Conn., martial arts academy that was selected for the 2012 Best of West Haven Award in the “martial arts training” category.
A Chattanooga, Tenn., comedy club that was selected for a 2012 Best of Chattanooga Award in the “nightlife” category.
An Atlanta magic business that was named recipient of a 2012 Best of Atlanta Award in the “corporate entertainment” category.
Several Wisconsin businesses, including a funeral home, a nanny service, a family service organization, a pet-sitting business, a locksmith, a chiropractor, hair salon, web design company and a Milwaukee inner city congregation.
Frank Moceri, a retired Internal Revenue Service agent who runs a St. Louis area tax business, said he had been solicited by the program, which he described as a “ridiculous scam.” The email directed him to a website with a personalized press release and offered him a chance to purchase what he called “a very expensive customized vanity award.” He declined the offer.
In addition to their near-identical news releases, the BBB found other connections between these "Award Programs" and the US Commerce Association. Much of the website content is the same for both businesses. Also, several news releases from the US Commerce Association were from a person identified as Kelly McCartney, the name used to register the website awardprogram.org in May 2012.
Attempts to contact representatives of the company were unsuccessful.
The BBB offers several tips to avoid losing money in a vanity award program:
Learn everything you can about who is giving the award. If it is coming from a mystery company, chances are they simply want your money.
If you didn’t apply for an award or the group cannot tell you how you were nominated, chances are the award is not legitimate.
Most legitimate awards do not come with costs for the recipient. If there is a cost, scrutinize it even more closely.
Ask specific questions about how your company or organization was chosen for an award and find out how many similar awards are given each year.
