I have an official Black Belt in Vale Tudo issued by Ashida Kim himself. I'm also now an official member of the Black Dragon Fighting Society. It cost me $55. A little background: back in March, Kickcatcher solicited for someone to buy a blackbelt from AK with little credentials to prove that he was doing as such. Ashida Kim had been completely denying that he was selling blackbelts and was checking/testing rigorously to keep unqualified people from doing so. We all know that was a crock of ****, so...... I told him the total truth about myself, in that I'm only white belt level/kyu rank in several martial arts, and he still issued me a black belt. I specified Vale Tudo because we thought that'd be cool.

the first picture is signed by Ashida Kim "director emeritus" with Chris Hunter as the CEO and the second pic is signed by Ashida Kim and the CEO name I can't quite make out, I believe the surname is Javier, but I'm not sure.

I suppose now you can strap on that cape, and have a fly around the dojo.

Now it's time for you to open a school, and charge $$$. You have been given the keys to the kingdom. After you build a following of morons who believe you are a dragon in human form, get them to build you a castle in the woods for free...
Also, let us know when your first 'Ninja Porn' novel is coming out. Maybe you can get Ashida to endorse the cover with a pithy comment.

I don't want to rain on your parade, but why, for the love of all that is holy, would you give 55 bucks of your money to Ashida Kim? You didn't prove anything that we already didn't know, and while a black belt 1st dan in Vale Tudo is cute, I don't see how financially supporting this lowlife is worth it.
You say what about my rice?

Hey, you think he'll give you a black belt in anything? I want a black belt in Ninten Do. And I'm sure he gives out black belts in Tek Mai Do all the time.
