Ralphie the Rump Ranger... so sad really. No way he will EVER be legit, or have the rep he wishes he has. So like the pathetic little troll he is, he lashes out at anyone who he is jealous of.
I understand Ralphie, and it explains your anal fixation..."Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." -- Hericletus, circa 500 BC

Pity me all you like. I'm not going to vouch for certifications that I don't know anything about, and neither will I call him a liar, for the same reason.

If I were any of his LE "friends" I would't be too happy having my name associated with a person who is behaving as he has done all over the interwebs.

That makes him a liar.
Yes, I agree he is playing games. However those games are a lame attempt to avoid the questions being asked.
So again, to each their own...."Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." -- Hericletus, circa 500 BC

But if I might speculate just a little, it may be that the judo training was informal and the rank was awarded informally by whoever he trained with. I do NOT know that, I'm just speculating. The reason I say that is that I have known him to train with other instructors on an informal basis (like the BJJ training), and in those settings I doubt he is ever on their student roster at all.
Or you might be right, he might have made the whole thing up. I don't know why he would want to, but I suppose anything is possible.
I do wish that he'd quit playing games and just be straight up about it.

it really is that simple.

I might be missing a trick here but does Severe count these certs as genuine? I keep seeing his 'F.A.K.E.' remarks but I honestly can't tell if he's being sarcastic or not.
I've skipped back about 10 pages and can't figure it out. Either way, if it's for trolling or not I'm pretty sure it's illegal to forge any kind of official document in the states, even for fun.

Now after weeks of his games no one here is going to accept such an answer either . Fact remains he made claims on his website and other websites relevant to the skills he claims to teach . He cannot back up those claims . Instead he has chosen to act like a petulant child .

It useful to remember at this point, the provenance associated with the booj paperwork, the papers Hatsumi won't let the historians look at to verify, but holds them nice and far away and says "See they are real!"
Boojers, regardless of whether they are good at budo, or larpers, or whatever, have already sold their souls certificate wise, maybe it doesnt matter to them and they don't care, maybe they force themselves to believe the story is true against the overwhelming contra-indicators. Who knows? But in order to be a good little boojer, you either beleive in what are quite likely faked papers, or you simply don't care because for you the quality of the training outweighs the historical accuracy, or for some other reason.
But it's hard to imagine a dyed in the wool boojer is the kind of person that takes certificates and paperwork and such with much seriousness.
