Thread: Bullshido Artist Ralph Severe

Case in point, my edits to the write-up (as yet unaddressed by Cy, so I don't expect to see them published) included adding "Mr." in every place where an individual was referenced by last name only. My reasoning was that the Martial Arts Encyclopedia should strive to be objective and (reasonably) respectful, in order to avoid appearing as nothing more than a polemic.

Cy has been busy but will deal.

That is in fact the correct possessive.
I'll try to PM you something on this subject by week's end.

I just returned from almost two weeks in Texas. I enjoyed the fine spring time weather, that tried to blow our tents away and filled them with near-freezing rain. Tent makers need to understand what it takes to camp in Texas, then build a tent that can stand it. I spent the next week training. Well, three days of it. I was on leave, after all.
Only after I returned to Mississippi, safely out of the possibility of reaching Dallas any time soon, I received this message:

I am working on website stuff, and I'd like to point out that the big thing is where you show up on the search engines. I suspect Ralph and his butt boys are attempting to use that knowledge to "shift" what people see when they google his name.
It also explains why they are creating sites with similar names.
It obvious to me that "google search" is the only battlefield Ralph is trying to engage on...."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

Maybe also one added clarification:
Dear supposed unknowing readers,
By now, there is no real doubt among us Bullies that Ralph Severe is just simply full of ****.
He claims several black belts in kicking arts, yet has the body complexion of a manatee. REAL Tae Kwon Do/whatever instructors don't have that.
He claims to be an expert on military-like weapon fighting, yet has next to none military expierence. REAL military combative instructors don't do that.
He claims a black belt in Judo, yet when asked, posts bizarre videos of him swinging sticks and work hammers around. REAL judo instructors have no fucking clue what he is doing.
The many, many pages in this thread may suggest we're still discussing the truth of his claims. That would be wrong.
If at all, what we're discussing about now are SEMANTICS, like, is it possible that he got a degree saying one, but meaning another thing, or that there is something else to see in his demented ramblings that might help us shed new light on the situation.
But is there any doubt that he is a liar, and conscious about it?
At this point, pretty much not at all.
Do not waste your money on training with this man unless he becomes honest about his own training record.
