This is the most awesome site to date, www.carterhargravefraud.org says this:
Carter Hargrave Ending Fraud In Martial Arts
Help Stop Fraud In Martial Arts Support Carter Hargrave In His Program
"There were many so called JKD teachers claiming to teach the art that Bruce Lee founded, while having had no contact with any legitimate organization or even teacher of the original art" says Carter Hargrave President of World Jeet Kune Do. "Now you cant do an internet search without either myself or my Federation coming up on the top of the list for the past ten years in a row at least. We have stayed the number one Jeet Kune Do organization in the world by giving the students and the public the best learning experience and that means quality authentic instruction no matter where in the world you are."
Eliminating Fraud is where the World Jeet Kune Do Federation comes in. On the Official Website of Jeet Kune Do www.worldjkd.com or www.jeetkunedo.org there is a worldwide school and instructor listing that a prospective student can research and find authentic teachers in your area without the fear of getting ripped off or be a victim of a scam or fake teacher that is only in it for the money.
For those that have no teacher nearby that they can contact in person you can order the distance training and ranking program that has taught more students Jeet Kune Do than any in martial arts history."

Both of the sites from my last 2 posts were taken from Google's cached sites list, during a search for Carter Hargrave Fraud.
I received this via my YouTube channel, I guess in response to my comments on Hargrave’s over 20 accounts, and various videos. Especially his AMAZING knife attack video! My comment on his knife video was this: “he looks like an epileptic going into a convulsive fit holding a knife”.
His letter follows:
“Well you insolent whelp. It appears you have your defimation, slander, and unprovoked attacks against our person and intellectual property, so you have our undivided attention because of your unprovoked attacks. Well you have our attention now. Our attorneys are preparing to file suit against you in state court in Tulsa, so be prepared to pay for your theft of our intellectual property and your interference with our commerce and slander.
The address that we have for service is:
<Last name and address omitted because that is neither my name, or address>
We should begin in the next thirty days. If you have an attorney please forward his information to us, and ask them if they will accept service for you. Be sure and post this letter online so your known associates can see where you are heading.
Hargrave Martial Arts
Division Headquarters of Hargrave Arts LLC.
Tulsa, Ok 74152”
I am guessing that this is a standard form letter that Hargrave sends to his MANY detractors, and anyone who questions his God like credintials. This is the 3rd such letter that I have received, and have yet to see any type of subpoena or summons, but then again, it appears Hargrave is fishing for my name on the net. Keep trying CH, if you would like to come onto Bullshido for a little conversation I would be more than happy to provide you with my name and address! The truth will set you free.
Fucking learn how to spell if you are going to threaten people with lawsuits and any type of litigation. That **** irritates me to no end. We have many threads where a guy sends an alleged cease and desist and it is chock full of grammatical and spelling errors.

So here is a video posted by Carter Hargrave of his website... A video, of his website. Let that sink in for a minute. Also, before Hargrave deletes all the comments on this one I would like to post them for prosperity. These are not my comments, but other random viewers who will probably receive fake cease and desist letters in the near future, you know since the First Amendment doesn't apply for Carter Hargrave:

This guy is an idiot."
TheKode wrote: "Wow, more self promotion from the grand master poser himself! Its amazing... You own 118 domains, all of which are self promoting, and still you put up a new page seemingly every week. Anyone who is interested in this loser please do a search for "bullshido carter hargrave", or do some research for yourself! Search any search engine for carter hargrave, and every single website that pops up is owned by hargrave himself. unbelievable! or just watch his knife video HAHAHA what a joke!!!"
All of my posts have been deleted by Hargrave prior to this post.
I wanted to make a permanent record in case of future litigation.
HE can remove the video whenever he wants. Things on the internet rarely disappear.
Just a point of clarification frogninja, the video(s) you commented on were they on Youtube or his website? Because if he posted them on Youtube and you commented on/copied them there isn't jack he can do as per Youtubes terms of service.
