Found another one of Yoder's certifications, this one from the International Budo Register. As can be plainly read on the page, it was gotten simply by e-mailing a certificate to them. Interesting that this is on Weebly; it seems to be where a lot of these rank mills are based.
I'd also like to note that, as can be seen on this site, the rank sent to the IBR was his 5th dan in "Hapki-Do Police Methods", which was most likely also garnered online, so we have a pretty clear illustration here of how one fake e-rank can beget more.
For some reason his 10th Dan in Wakazamurai Kokusai Budo jumped out at me on the IBR site.

No point in reporting him... Hanshi - Soke Sefik Gulten has a bigger trophy case: https://plus.google.com/photos/11499...745?banner=pwa
Yeah, I ran down the Wakazamurai thing some weeks ago. See post #35.

Maybe Bob thinks he can actually get people to believe his BS, if he is part of legit organizations?
Who in their right mind is going to take Bob seriously?
Other than other LaRPfeST Ok Soke Organizations, no one.
The only thing those guys take serious is his credit card transaction or check clearing the bank. If I sold pieces of paper for a hundred bucks, I would feel guilt and shame for cheating someone. These chumps take pride in it and likely believe their own bullshit.

For what it's worth (admittedly not much), I'm probably only about 15 minutes from this guy if anyone wants any follow-up. I'm not suggesting I go kick his ass...judging from his bio he probably does have SOME training (Will, Choi, and Greene are/were real teachers of a sort), and I don't particularly want to be jumped by some delusional guy with a basement full of knives, clubs, etc. I could try to talk to him or something, though, if that would be helpful . Just throwing that out there what with him being so close...
It would be interesting to get a look from inside. My parents live near there, so I might be able to do it sometime, but I have no idea when that would be. I, for one, would love to hear what an actual class from this guy is like.
