According to some local martial artists, he dropped out, and got a mail order black belt certification. I have friends who trained with him and know for a fact that he included ITF hyungs in his curriculum when he taught back in the 90's.

    Are you from Sioux City?
    He spelt it Taekwon-Do
    Only the ITF say taekwon-do. The rest say taekwondo. Sadly, I have never been to the states...

    Unfortunately (for him, and for people like him), that's an opinion supported by much less evidence than is readily available for the reality of Santa Claus. "Because the Bible says so," and forgeries in historical records written centuries after he allegedly lived, do not a watertight case make...

    So, if we re-engage our common sense and our critical thinking, we can immediately see that not only is he full of **** on the religious angle, but he's obviously in need of learning a bit more about Asian language before he starts talking out of his ass with piss-poor mistranslations and over-simplifications. He's just another mono-lingual American trying to sound intelligent and failing epically while doing so.

    :angry4:
    Matt,

    I apologize for not bringing this up the first time I responded to your post. I actually just thought of this today. Based on your use of critical thinking, couldn't/shouldn't Sifu Starr's account of his relationship with the late W.C. Chen be just as questionable as the existence of Jesus Christ? If you look through "The Making of a Butterfly," there isn't even a single photo of Master Chen. I believe someone remarked on another thread/site about how convenient it was that Sifu Starr claims to be Chen's only living student and nobody seems to know where any of Chen's relatives are or if he has any.

    Exactly.

    Can I get an amen?
