    Ben
    Typo, I was referring to my activity on the forums here not forms. I am also not a black belt in typing :)

    I wasn't implying anything but I understand where your coming from. If anyone asks me about what I have done I'm completely honest as I have been here with you.

    Thanks for taking an interest. Stop by if your ever in FL.

    Usually with the added implication: "you obviously don't have better things to do, losers".

    Would you care to address the points raised previously by Karatemom? Were you discharged from the military, and if so, why?

    Depends, when we get the angry teen or fraud yes. When it is a guy, who is legit, but may be playing with semantics it is only implied.

    lol,

    Not in this case. I was referring to why I'm not on the forums as often as I was when I first joined. I joined this forum in 2007

    I have not been dishoroably discharged from the Army. I have in fact never been in the Army.


    I am also an Eagle Scout, married, own 5 akitas and enjoy long walks on the beach, but none of that has anything to do with whether or not I have been teaching quality martial arts for the past 15 years.

    I joined this forum because I beleived in the superiority of modern training methods and application focus over traditional arts. Isn't that what this forum is all about?

    Still not addressing my points. I doubt I'll be in Florida anytime soon, but thanks for the invite.

    I wouldn't exactly put it that way,but it's close.

    Whenever someone makes claims about rank, experience, etc., in the martial arts here, they an expect to be questioned. Thus my questions about your Judo rank and experience. Which you answered openly, that is a good start.

    BTW, I don't envy your dog food bill with 5 akitas, nor the cleanup duties involved!

    No it is one of many aspects of this forum. I mean if we go back to the original purpose, of this website, it is about investigating claims in the Martial Arts world. So, asking you for verification is following the original purpose of the website.

    Thanks God for Sam's club :)

    I have no problem answering questions and discussing martial arts, that is why I came here originally :) I just don't need to see this degenerate into a trollfest.

    Thanks for the professionalism Ben, that isnt something that is commonly found on the internet :)
