    Not speaking of thes world college ( for fear I may be sued in MI court and then shot by ted Nugent).When these guys buy their own ranks and titles they must feel like they should be good sports and sell others their ranks and titles.
    I wonder if you can also buy the tournament titlte. Heavyweight grand champion black for only $499; men's lightweight yellow belt $23.14; Womens grand championship black belt $253.99 ( that one's on a blue light special half price sale! Wome are attracted to sales)
    I can imagine going to the tournament/hall of fame get together and it's like a big flea market/yard sale. You just move from table to table checking out what you want to buy. One table has "used ranks" you can buy Chuck Norris' old 2nd dan for $800..well he doesn't use it anymore does he?
    For a few thousand you could proabably buy a 10th dan, get a college doctoring degree and be in the hall of fame, all in one weekend.
    I wonder if we would all get a discount if we went together in my car :car25:

    Do you have any idea how much Harvard costs a year? Hint: its over $30,000 a year.

    Lets get to the facts, however.

    1) How many people have applied to the WMACPR for rank of a 1st degree black belt or above in the last three years?

    2) Of these people how many of these people had their credit card payments go through?

    3) Of these people who put in their credit card information and were found to be able to to pay how many had their money returned or not accepted because your organization decided that their submitted background did not support their rank?

    If you wanna give yourself for $10 cheap guy, do it its your problem, but quality and accreditation have a cost here and World Wide. And the reputation came during long time period of quality time investment. But maybe you are the true Mc Dojo that just talk and the people don't pay for your knowlegde more than $1 because its what you are a costume to receive.

    The people are not jerk and they want to pay for quality and accreditation and that is what they receive from us. Thats why they pay us for test them, thats why they don't go to you for it.
    Wait? so if I don't pay you.. then I'm not really a black belt?

    NO WAY! sign me up NOW!

    Knew of a guy once who spent six years getting his shodan then went to another of these convienience store accreditation organizations and qualified under their requirements for a 6th dan. He decided he was good enough to not only open his own club but to create his own style. The thing is that his original sensei had studied for about twenty years and was only a 4th. These certificates are like solo sex, all the satisfaction but you don't have to work for it. Just don't let it go to your head and try competing.

    A friend of mine is a collector of titles. It started when she received an honorary doctorate through some error (for advancing human rights or something like that). After that, she became a registered minister online, and bought a dutchess title in Sealand. I should let her know she can be the Reverend Dutchess Dr Jordan 5th dan.

    Judging by the way he writes you would think he is just not intelligent enough, even though he's a doctor to understand that people that work to earn degrees both in college and in the dojo are going to resent the rip-offs that sell rank for dollars. I like the ad iI saw one time that read "Rank should be an honor not an expense". That's the kind of organization I would join.
    Trying to tell these rank-for-sale organizations that they are doing the wrong thing is like, well it's like beating a dead horse. :deadhorse

    I hope I'm not being that guy by feeding the troll, but I'm going to assume WMACPR's strange remarks are due to English not being his first language.

    WMACPR, I have a genuine question for you: why does your institution offer accreditation for the World Tae Kwon Do Federation?

    I see that in order for a student to apply for WTF rank, they must provide documentation showing sufficient training and experience for that rank. I would assume that the only necessary and sufficient training for a WTF belt would be attendance of a WTF school. So if a student had the training and experience needed for a WTF rank shouldn't they have already gotten that rank through the WTF directly?
