    My call has been proven correct at every competition I've ever attended. As both a participant and spectator for my fellow students.

    So is the issue here the certification of stylists for money?

    The "white dude creating his own Asian-named style"?

    Both?

    I wasn't questioning anyone's physical skill.

    But...

    Bullshit is bullshit. You can't escape that.

    Now we're just playing the "last word" game.

    If you can't see the [bullshit] comparables I've shown - given the website we're on and what gets discussed under the principle of "Bullshido" and, you're unable to even concede that, at the very least, I may have a point, then you do have your eyes closed.

    Actually, the very first reply I posted to you said, explicitly, that your concerns are valid but unncessary. There is nothing unreasonable about your concerns. But the only thing I have to offer you is my word on the subject. If that's not good enough, there really isn't anything more I can say.

    Not questioning YOU at all Mav, only the association your teacher has with generally accepted bullshit. I don't expect you to like that, but its a fact never the less. I've presented you the very text which exists on your teacher's website and of that from which he's the President there of. Accept it or not, as I said that's your call.
    Obviously people on forums don't have the experience with the people I train with that I do, so I'm willing to give the benefit of doubt before "WHOAM GONG SAU".
    Pleeease, you're making my eyes ache with all the rolling.
    ..//..If you want to take out your frustrations with the fault's of this site's investigations on me or my teachers, by all mean do so if it will make you feel better. It isn't something that will bother me.
    Really ? It bothered you enough to edit a previous post.

    I don't need to physically know your instructor to question the obvious and self professed association he has to circle-jerking bullshit.

    I know you don't. I didn't doubt that since your first post.

    I don't think your skills, your teacher's or your training mates are in doubt here, however there are some organizational issues (WCAF=Sokeship Council?) which can be seen as lacking integrity .

    If you ellaborate a bit, i think the doubts about these organizational issues can be solved. Your word have value for those who know you, but clarifiying the thing won't hurt.
