    FYI

    Krood1 I emailed one steven ventura and got a pretty clear picture of why there is so much bitterness in the lama community.

    one wonders why nameless, faceless people want to come on here and distract from the issues at hand (end sarcasm)

    Let's NOT get distracted

    1. From www.GreenCloud.net - "The revered master adopted a young American boy"
    http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/foru...1&d=1197862616
    That's the adopting, he clearly isn't a boy
    LIE #1

    2. From www.GreenCloud.net - "holds 10 black belts in other systems of martial arts"
    After more than 2 years has refused to disclose the details except a claim to a black belt in Nisei Goju under a "Master Zuzio"
    http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/foru...&postcount=647

    Except that the head of Nisei Goju says he is not aware of any master by that name
    http://www.angelfire.com/ny/sanshou/Roldanletter.jpg

    3. From www.GreenCloud.net - "Sifu Kaparos has been nominated to the Kung-Fu Hall of Fame"
    DECEPTION! He got an award from the INFAMOUS "World Head Of Family Sokeship Council" which can be bought.

    4. From http://www.greencloudkungfu.com/acad...structors.html
    The claim is made that he met CTS in "the late 1980's"
    Both the testimony of Mike Parrella (who introduced Gus to CTS), and the Inside Kung Fu article prove this is ANOTHER LIE

    http://www.angelfire.com/ny/sanshou/ikf892.jpg
    http://www.angelfire.com/ny/sanshou/ikf893.jpg

    5. The videos of actual technique are posted to see. Compare CTS actually doing staff to the cheerleader baton twirling Gus does while calling it CTS material. It's been suggested that is yet another case of bullshido

    Already starting to look pretty bad and we still have some other outstanding issues

    http://www.greencloud.net/949615.html
    Where the claim is made "we are just an extension of the Green Cloud Monastery, which is still in Toisan China"

    A letter from China stating the monastery is a pile of bricks and no longer in operation is going to make that yet ANOTHER LIE

    I dont know if you were refering to me but you keep talking about the same thing. You have excellent credentials and you are very well spoken with a great history. Your issues seems to be that someone is making false claims. Why does it bother you so much? I dont know and i am not trying to be sarcastic I am just asking?

    Thanks to Tom Kagan for keeping this "on topic" (wow, is this post non-contributing?)

    I simply want to preserve the reputation of my late teacher and of the arts that he taught.

    So, if you are correct in that school owners receive solicitations...this would mean Gus was "nominated" but never purchased the ticket for the rubber chicken dinner. Looks as though Gus is not lying---but pretty deceptive I'd say. All he had to do was get the same letter as you did and he is technically telling the truth.

    This really sheds light on many many instructors with their HOF nonsense.
    HOF awards can be pretty scetchy. I get solicitations from such award dinners a few times a year. You can actually nominate yourself...and they seem most interested in how many place settings/tables you can fill.

    I know one guy who nominated himself for an award, did not get it after voting, and still uses in his bio that he was "nominated" for it. So, while Gus may not be technically lying by saying he was nominated, it is a big misrepresentation if he did not win anything.

    So often we focus on what we can't do, that we forget all of the things we can do. We also forget that many of the things we can do were not easy when we started.

    First, change the font to a normal size so we can read your post without going blind please.

    Second, I barely made it all the way through your post becuase it is just a long fucking junior high school yard soap opera (but this is natural coming from the ranks of Sifu Chan's students - can't you people ever get along?). You can cut out 90% of your post and still make your damn point about Gus, Parella, Ventura, Ross, and all the other Sifu Chan students who seem to consistently change alliances over the years (except for Innocenzi - He is awsome and always stayed out of the BS).

    I don't mean to be rude here, but this thread is not about reminiscing your good old days with Sifu Chan, etc. Nobody really cares (at least I don't). Simply make your point about Gus, Parella, and the others and move on...plain and simple.

    Rafael, you may have some points but you sound like a child and your post is retarded.

    Why would anyone calling themselves a Sifu (or anyone over the age of 12) write like that? Learn how to write and get your point aross and people may take you seriously.

    That's why it was moved out of the CMA forum. It was a random response out of nowhere.

    I mean if it is a serious enough issue, to make you post, spell your own name right.
