    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Are you a master and do you even read the forum descriptions?

    How many instructors out there use the term "Master" or "Shihan" or "Hanshi" either before or after your name on your business cards or when writing a letter? Have you ever looked into the origins of thse designations? Have you checked out how they are used in Japan or Okinawa? The majority of those individuals using those terms have not really looked into it very far. Most of these terms are not used in correspondence of on business cards or in any written form other than very official documents in Japan or Okinawa. Americans caught on to these neat sounding titles and began to use them as commonly as taking a pee in the bushes.

    I guess it give us a feeling of self-worth or some sort of status to say: "Hi, I'm Hanshi Goobertoes" or " My name is Kiyoshi Muttonhead Smith", who are you?

    Get over it! Your status elevation exists only in your own mind.

    This thread doesn't belong here and should be moved. Newbietown would be right but YMAS would be much more fun. I could use a new noob pelt.

    "Tom Kagan spins in his grave and the fucking guy isn't even dead yet." -- Snake Plissken

    I'm not sure where you're going with this?

    You obviously know nothing about this site if you would even post something like that. Read more, post less or in your case never again and get your ky-jelly out. You are going to need it. Stooopid noob.
