is he a fraud?
Hey, I'm new (duh) so i don't know if this man has ocme up yet or not but I thought I would ask. Dr. Rod Sacharnoksi, supposedly a Dai-Soke, 10th Dan, and head master of Juko-Kai. Umm I had heard that this man was a questionable person in his truth. Does anyone know the truth about him?
without research or caring, i will say yes.
with research, i will decide later -

Rod previously was the subject of various threads on E-Budo, alleging that he had committed all kinds of Bullshido. So Rod sued e-budo, and several of its members, and last I heard this suit had gotten thrown out of court. So if you ask me, would you go train with Rod or take his representations at face value. Probably not.
He was at some point challenged regarding his claimed USJF 8th dan in judo.
Turned out he was a shodan.

I don't know.
I just enjoyed reading stuff like this on the website linked some posts above, like:
His accomplishments in the martial arts are well documented. He can be found in the Who's Who of Martial Arts. During his big demonstration days he was even on late with Johnny Carson.
Acclaimed as the "Father of Modern day Ju-jutsu" and "Father of Non-Asian Soke."
He is the founder and developer of the world famous Juko-Ryu combat Ki arts which permits specially trained martial artists to take full power strikes and kicks to the vital areas of the body without injury.
He trained the Dallas Cowboys football team in the special hard Ki methods of Internal Energy, and has also trained Ross Perot's personal bodyguards and security specialists in Defensive Tactics and specialized personal protection.

Dr. Rod Sacharnoski was awarded an honorary 10th Dan in Bujinkan Budo By Soke Hatsumi of Japan. This Honor was bestowed upon him by Shihan John Willson who is member of Juko Kai International and Bujinkan Budo. Soke Sacharnoski has developed a ninjitsu program - Juko Kai Ninpo in which it is based on his studies of Soke Hatsumi.

Sound legit to me:
