Style: tang su do
Not anymore, I would just say Karate or Tang su do....... I could be wrong though.. Because I've never studied any other style .. I've been to about 20-30 tournaments though and only fought against TKD students and won every time. The style he teaches does exists, but it's not his.. Because I've seen other students practice the same that never were affiliated with him. He's just not all he says he is.

Ah I see, makes sense. Tang soo do definitely exists and is the actual transliteration of the chinese characters for "karate", making http://masterbillskarate.com/about.htm make a whole lot more sense.
If you don't mind me asking, would you by any chance be willing to post what you know on his martial arts history? I'm having some trouble finding his school on the International Tang Soo Do and World Tang Soo Do websites, and a search of Pyung Hwa Do on google and all the popular Korean search engines (yahoo.co.kr, msn.co.kr, and naver) are only coming up with dunkin DOnuts (same "do" when written in hangul) and rants on peace.

Oh forgot to mention, I'm apparently more of a dumbass in Korean than I thought: Pyung hwa (평화) does mean "peace", but the chinese characters are 平和, which is still not karate. Does anyone know how I can edit that post? The edit button is gone.
However, the second part of the patch is DEFINITELY without a doubt still really horrible. Written by someone who took an intro Korean class or something, no doubt.

Style: Muay Thai
not to derail the thread here but take a look:
2nd video. listen for the sounds of labored breathing about ohhhhh 10 seconds into the light exercise, O I mean "sparring". The veterans of this school are obviously in phenomenal shape....

So you went there because he was cheap. You thought he was full of ****. Yet you kept going there to learn ****. I don't care how cheap something is... **** is ****. And you reciently recieved your black belt there. So do you have a black belt in ****?
Question is why did you stay so long if there is no value in what he teaches.

One day a real black belt started training there. he asked alot of questions. Where did you fight bill? who did you fight bill? then we'd go looking to see if it was true.
He basically doesn't lie to me any more yet doesn't answer my questions either because i told him i can't find anything on him about karate. his response to me is " i'm ex special forces you'll never find anything about me. besides i'm 11 time super heavy weight champ what else do you need to know?"
Being good promoters for our master when people would ask how did you lose the weight? i say proudly Master Bills karate. They laugh and walk away.
That is why i'm asking. Word of mouth answers better than asking the mouth. I'd love to know if other students of his regret supporting his BS when they were there.
Did you ever go say this to his face? That he is full of ****. Because I don't see anywhere on here where you did that? I don't like it when punks run there mouth on a computer and don't have the balls to confront someone face to face. You reminded me of a 13 year old girl.

11 time super heavy weight camp of what exactly? what organization recognized him 11 times as a world champion? Even if it's simple curiosity he should be able to easily answer those questions without a condescending tone.
He was Marine Recone in Vietnam.

They are almost all family matters. Look at the last name on several is Snyder. The one with Giullermo bill is the plantiff. The other two I don't know. And the social service thing I don't know. He's not a child molester. And doesn't seem like there is any criminal matters of him conning people. So why post this?
