    What say ye TJH? How do you justify being promoted by your own students and your support of Dr. Gyi and his questionable ethics?

    I think I answered you questions, and amazingly, managed to do it without insulting you.

    Now, here is a simple, easy to answer question for you.

    You?

    I'm just curious why a conviction is the deciding factor in determining a person's merit... I know a lot of people who aren't "guilty" of violating any laws, but who are reprehensible, untrustworthy, and of questionable ethical and moral standards.

    If there is a consensus that a given individual has, on numerous occasions, lied about his/her history, background, etc., then why bother with such a person in the first place? Perhaps they possess some technical skill that they are capable of passing on, but why would anyone want to spend time (and money) doing so? If it's a well-known fact, established by the personal, first-hand testimony of many people who have had direct interaction with said individual, I don't see where a trial and conviction are necessary.

    But whatever. People pull blinders on for all sorts of reasons...

    It really all depends on their convictions.

I teach anywhere from 25 – 35 seminars a year throughout North America and Europe. If you check the WMAA website at www.wmarnis.com you can see if I’ll be in your area. I leave next Thursday (Jan 27th) for a tour in Sweden and return on February 7th. Feel free to contact me at my school (Horizon Martial Arts) before or after my trip. My school number is 716-675-0899, and before anyone asks, there in NO “Swedish Bikini Team”. I was crushed to find out it was an urban legend!

    Respectfully yours,
    Datu Tim Hartman
    World Modern Arnis Alliance
    Who I am has nothing to do with whether TJH is a fraud or not and KR has already admitted that he wouldn't believe me even if I did reveal my ID. I'm content to allow the facts speak for themselves. Anybody with a whole brain can decide for themselves. Keep rounding up more of your flunkies to defend your BS Hartman.

    FINALLY!! A voice of reason, or perhaps just someone who ISN'T affiliated with Hartman.

    Perhaps, but it does go a long way toward establishing whether you're just here pursuing a personal vendetta/agenda.

    and KR has already admitted that he wouldn't believe me even if I did reveal my ID.
    Though I've been at odds with KR in the past over any number of issues (hey, Kaith, how's things?), I don't blame him for telling you that he's not going to waste daylight on you or your issues unless you man up and ID yourself for the audience at large... Bottom line, your complaints don't matter if you don't show where you're coming from in forming them. Jaded ex-student? Competitor in the same business arena?

    I'm content to allow the facts speak for themselves. Anybody with a whole brain can decide for themselves. Keep rounding up more of your flunkies to defend your BS Hartman.
    What facts? There's a FAQ answering and rebutting everyone's complaints that he "self-promoted." I don't agree with the process they followed, but it's relatively common knowledge that anything above 5th/6th degree is honorary only, anyway. Those grades serve to identify the leadership of a school, style, association, etc., and are really not indicative in any way of skill. So if that's all you're hung up on, Remy promoted him to 6th personally. That'd imply he's legit enough...

    Enjoy.

    Actually, I was informally instructed by one of Hartman's students while living in Japan. Never joined his (TH's) association (which may be why my emails to TH have always gone unanswered), so I'm not officially affiliated with him, but I do trace my Modern Arnis lineage through him, for sure.

    Ah. Thanks.

    Yet another who does not realize that in Asian culture it is uncouth to refer to yourself with your title--made up or not. Must confess whenever I see someone sign as a "shihan" or worse, "sensei" or, even worse, "soke," no . . . wait, let us not forget "Supreme Grand Master," my Bullshido Detectors scream.
