wow, that was a pathetic display of martial arts non mastery.
So Po let random listeners come in to try and survive 30 seconds of "po"?
Larptastic display of flailing and falling about...misdirection I'm sure.

Next time I get my butt kicked I'm going to jump up real quick and raise my hands in the air like I won.

sounds like a real piece of work. I think a lot of these "masters" count on people's sympathy to not out them for being less than masterful. I'd like to go on and kick his ass in 30 seconds...they can do whatever??? strike/grapple etc? that would be awesome.

...... this makes me sad...
what is this guy's real name so I can research him up..
also that video does not work...
Im sorry but you fail at making a OP investigation post.
but thanks for finding a great person to investigate.
Here's what my google-fu has unraveled.
his website is: Http://masterpos.com
Clip of his "Demo":
/////Need about 25 minutes to critique his video. (I need to go buy liquor to sit through the whole demo without wanting to stab myself in the eye.)
////Still reading up on his claims/research to organize into a better post.
///more to come..
/this would make good footage for a future FMA sucks month.

Great Action picture.
Note the oversized Judo Gi that he hasn't sized/shrunk properly.
as well as the cheap ass looking roundshield and short-sword/gladius? (i dont think its a gladius. looks more like a euro short/small sword. Western Weapons MAists please correct my ignorant ass)
edit: on second thought. Is that a motherfucking wakizashi he is using with that shield?
I also love the numerous certifications/titles/awards:
Lastra Brotherhood of Arnis : by the late Mang George.
Cert. of Attendance Ju Jitsu
Cert. of Appreciation Milloy High (Demo)
Cert. Federation of Practicing Ju-Jutsuans
Cert. of Appreciation Jung Ga King Fu
Cert. of Appreciation Nutley Auxiliary Police
Cert. of Appreciation Spring Garden PTA, Nutley NJ
North American Black Belt Federation : 7-21-96
Nutley Police Crime Prevention : 11-17-96
Plaque from students : 7-21-95
Best Seminar of the Year Dr. EA Moore
North American Black Belt Federation Participation : 5-28-95 ( Arnis Demo )
North American Black Belt Federation Cert. of Rank Kali
Member of Chamber of Commerce
World Martial Arts Hall of Fame Life Achievement
Cert. of Membership of World Martial Arts Hall of Fame
Man of the Year Philippine Martial Arts, World Martial Arts Hall of Fame
Looks like all of it is bought/fake accolades/certifications except for maybe the lastra brotherhood of arnis which I've never heard of.. but I'll get on to researching that and following up on the legitimacy of that claim.
Martial Arts Experience:
40 years in various methods of Kali, Aikido, Karate, Kung Fu and Ju-Jitsu.
Additional Training includes, Fencing, Boxing, and Kick-boxing and Grappling
Master of Stick, Knife, Whip and Stick and Knife-Fighting.
///Way more to come. =)

That's ok. You could look at any of the "Classic" threads in this section to see an example of a OP investigation thread.
a OP investigation post typically consists of
* Summary/Introduction of the School/Instructor/Individual in question
* The false / misleading / questionable claims the thread is meant to investigate
* The information you've managed to dig up in support of your claims (if you claim he is a fraud. then you must back it up with corroborating evidence. (this forum has several lawyers on staff so legal threats don't really scare bullshido that much.)
* Your personal experience, etc. and if you have a agenda. be sure to be open about it. (in this case you appear to be). Transparency is good. You have nothing to hide. I'm sure he has plenty.
* Usually closing with some kind of open-ended inquiry. (Can anyone corroborate his other claims/confirm/affirm this bullshido)
and Links, Videos and other interesting material about the individual/school/instructor.
The more entertaining the OP thread. The more it gets read, the more it'll show up in google and the more people will contribute.
So try and organize your claims a little more clearly instead of all blobbed up in one paragraph if possible. (Im a FMA nuthugger. ergo I love all things FMA. especially investigating FMA bullshido.)
Additionally, Could you fix your video link? or post a different one? I can't see it for some reason. It sounds like a better video than his demo. It also sounds like there was an additional/earlier/older thread on this individual. Would you mind linking it in this thread? or editing your OP to include it for reference?
More specifics/details about his operation would be great.
He sounds like he's up to his shoulders in debt from your description so far.
Could you go into details/specifics about the length and extent of his training under Amante P. Marinas? (Who I haven't heard of... but there are alot of smaller less known legit FMA teachers/systems/arts out there.)
and to answer your original question with regard to rank or titles in FMA.
There is no formal ranking or what not in FMA (Kali/Escrima/Arnis)
Guro = Instructor pretty much. Anything else like Maginoo Mandala Uber Weapons Master of All things. or Grand Ultra Tuhon or Superchief Tuhon Guro is more or less self-masturbation. In FMA, you generally aren't known by title but by reputation.
I wish he had the nerve to try FMA bullshido down here in texas. We got a couple of Former WEKAF World Champion guys (Doce Pares system) here. the head of the North American Pekiti Tirsia Kali Organization and a couple of Modern Arnis OGs.
I think a good next step woudl be to contact write/e-mail (both preferably) Opie and Anthony once we have documentation demonstrating your claim that he is a fraud.
shock jock radio djs would love to expose a Bullshido artist on the air.
Hell they'd probably try to arrange a challenge with a legit FMAer for shits and giggles.
I would pay a large amount of money to see this guy take on Crafty Dog of the Dog Brothers in a Gathering.... sadly it would be the most expensive 30 seconds of my entirely life... but god it would be worth it.

That video was really really bad. Why the shades? he's agent smith now?
So who, in the world of martial arts takes this guy seriously? does he have a following, or is he a lone tool?
Is he just a shamelessly self promoting media whore? What does he do to stay in the focus of the media????
