A tip, when documenting a claim he makes that you believe is questionable. Provide links, and screen captures to prevent a he said/he said problem from arising.
What in your personal experience made you decide the guy was not legit, when you formally had believe otherwise.

if you wish to have this thread temporarily hidden (moved to the BBC. PM a mod like Samuel Browning.)
Since this is a BBC thread now
will he still be able to update this thread with the juicy new info/tidbits?
or shall I PM him to becoming a contributing member? or did ya'all already work something out.

He can't receive pms since he has under 50 posts.
damn. well im sure he'll update with the info anyway. you can just merge it in later.
This is looking to be a bullshido classic thread already.
Im loving these videos. Im saving them to disk for the day Bullshido has a Kali/Escrima sucks month.
I wonder how many welts "master" Po has by the end of the day due slapping himself for sound effects.
I just found this site and read a post about "Master Po"
As a former student of his I can tell you he Robert Rivera is a fraud.
He taught like ****, in fact he would go down to his apartment during class and return to say good bye when class was over.
He taught Kapilian Kali in Nutley, NJ but closed down in 2003 then tried to reopen in 2005.
He trained on Long Island so he says in a basement. And claims to be a 40 year MA practictioner. I never trusted the guy and always thought he was shady.
I see now why he cant keep a school open. He now speaks on the Opie & Anthony show on XM radio.
I know this don't belong hear but I don't know my way around the site and wanted to tell you guys the mistery of "Master Po" or his real name Robert Rivera.
not as many as he should have from others slapping him.

as a note:
there is a "Po" post in the "Tom Fox" thread that I reported that should be merged over.
Why would they talk to him? I must have missed something (the headlights of my intellect are but birthdaycake candles)
Do the real deal guys not know, or just not say? My tiny brain is imploding to think he's got cred.
