    Reggie Hoover: A Kenpo Soke?

    Anyone ever hear of 'soke' Reggie Hoover? He popped up today on my history group. With all the accomplishments this guy lists, when does he have time to eat, breathe, sleep, take a dump, or anything else? I've posted a message asking him what, exactly, makes him a soke. Can't wait to read his response, if there is any.

    so he paid to join some organizations and then moved up through the ranks by getting other people to pay to join the organizations.

    Is that about right?

    This says it all.

    By the way, a google search for the Eagle Tiger Federation turns up a lot of hits that show it 'partners' with other questionable organizations.

    This is what a google search for Valadez Kenpo turned up (the website was defunct):
    "Valadez Kenpo Association...a global martial arts organization committed to uniting all martial artists, regardless of style."

    Right off the bat, that sounds like some Ashida Kim bullshit.

    This is the only background I could find in a quick search for Valadez Kenpo
