    I don't think I even buy his TKD rank...at least, not a black belt.

    I can't buy anybody getting to sandan in Kyokushin and being insecure enough to feel the need to lie about any additional training afterwards. Those things don't come in Cracker Jack boxes.

    LOL, that means you don't understand the poor quality of TKD in many areas. I had a guy offer me a 6 month plan once and this was a brick and mortar school.

    Spohn mentions in his interview that he was named Master of The Year for 2008 by the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame. I went to their website and indeed that's true. You can view the 2008 inductees list and Spohn did receive that award. According to Spohn, a student of his nominated Spohn without Spohn's knowledge, so it came as a complete surprise when he got the award.

    I looked through the website a bit and saw that the CEO and President is none other than Marty Cale who has been the subject of quite a bit of Bullshido himself. It seems that USMAHOF is intimately tied to the International Martial Arts Council which Cale also runs with some of the same staff from the USMAHOF.

    The bullshido is stacking higher and higher.

    Seriously? A six month plan for a BB? I had no idea that TKD had that many schools of poor quality. Well, I guess maybe he does have a TKD BB.

    This mouthbreather sinks even lower than Daw. Not only does he hold a katana like a baseball bat, he claims a special relationship with Christ. Did he get a black belt from Jesus too?

    This guy, Daw and Yoda should be brought together.

    Cage.

    Single elimination--no wait...just start all three of 'em and go with last-grandmaster-standing (who wins a date with a fat, zit-infested, agricultural-smelling cosplay girl).

    Add a couple of refs with cattle prods to make sure they don't just sit, discuss and then pray.

    The best you can say about this guy is that apparently he doesnt charge for lessons. But, you get what you pay for.

    Don't know if this is of any interest anymore, but I thought I'd mention it.

    Spohn, like Yoder and Daw, has a nice impressive "resume" of martial arts experience. I went through the info that the Truwaza site had on him but couldn't find any statements made ny Spohn as to who certified him/where he was certified. So, I decided to e-mail the site. This is the e-mail that I sent:

    To truwaza@yahoo.com

    I'm a little curious about a Shidoshi Geoffrey Spohn that contributes to your website. I read an interview with him where he claims the following ranks:

    7th degree in Saito Ha Shotokan,

    4th degree in Okinawan Goju Ryu,

    3rd degree Kyokushin Karate,

    2nd degree Aikido,

    1st degree in Tae Kwon Do

    The reason I'm curious is that he does not name who awarded him these ranks and when. Does he have a biography somewhere on your site that lists that info?
    I finally got this reply:

    To Me
    Today at 8:29 AM
    Dane -

    You welcome to contact him via facebook. As of December 31st , Truwaza will be taken offline for good. Thank you for your continued support of the magazine.

    Osu

    Torres , Sensei
    Now, if you look through the Truwaza site, it's easy to see that it's pretty much nothing but Bullshido. I just wonder if someone started calling out the BS and that's why the site is shutting down.
