    ordained Zen Priest (1972) from the Rinzai Daihonza Myoshinji Division of Honazono College, Kyoto, Japan.

    Rinzai?!?

    Oh, it's on like a muthafucka.

    I'll look up the college, but I'd be able to tell you if he's real with one conversation.

    He is indeed claiming to be a Yamabushi. Here's from his website:

    Master Skornia is a Yamabushi, a Zen Mountain Warrior. As a Shaolin Priest of Zen, he goes to the mountains evey year to train, study, and meditate for a month in the seclusion of the forest. In the tradition of the Shaolin Zen Priest Warriors, it is Professor Skornia's hope to continue to teach and learn the ultimate Truths of good techniques of the true Karate.

    Um...Yamabushi had nothing to do with Zen. They were Mikkyo. He should know this.

    Here is the University's homepage

    It's used by the Rinzai sect. I also think they are the ones in The Temple Of The Golden Pavilion in Kyoto.
