Yoder admits to taking seminars which, to me, is the same as buying rank when used in an unscrupulous fashion. The above link describes what goes into being a level 1 coach. Color me unimpressed with a two day course. Nope, I am not talking about the fitness or the workouts for crossfit, just the level 1 training course claim of certification. It reminds me of all the douches that used the GJJ Blue Belt seminar course as a legit rank back in the day.
I agree. I also looked into what it took to obtain certification. My only qualm was that on the website, Crossfit claims all certified instructors are listed in their database and Bob Yoder is not there. Maybe it is time to contact Crossfit and ask them if he is illegally using their name for profit?

The total years required is part of the Word document on this page.
I have a feeling that if we were to pursue the members on their list, each of them would be found to be a mouthboxer.
Are you ever going to answer the questions put to you? Or are you going to sit in the dark and cry?
Man up, as you started this drek fest with posting up all this fake ranks.
Since we were talking about honorary academic degrees;
"Awarded Doctor of Philosophy in Martial Arts & Defense Tactics Education from West Coast "
What is West Coast Bob? Can you provide a copy of your PhD please?
"Awarded the Counter Terror Tactics Association of Science from the Urban Tactical Operations Association Accredited by the American Modern Jujitsu Federation."
So the associates in counter-terrorism that you were claiming earlier is also an honorary degree that is accredited from the same pay to play organization from which you obtained you black belt in jujutsu?
"Chairman, USA, Martial Art Games Promotion Board, World Martial Art Association -WMAA"
You claimed to not train for competition, only for teh deadly streets. How can you be the Chairman of an organization whose responsibility is the promotion of martial arts as sport, when you outright reject competition?
Shall we continue? Because even a cursory examination of your bullshit claims reveals that your life story has more holes than a sieve.

Each 'little more' merits a brand-new rank.
Just to be inclusive, there's some old math in the new math: since zero is very little, doing nothing but some home-study counts as a "little"...and leads to another full and legitimate rank!
This new reality is so wonderful that, to experience it fully, one doesn't even need to drop acid.
NO! That can't possibly be! Bob doesn't pay for honors. They are awarded because he is so damn good that people can't help but throw belts and degrees at him.
