    Would you expect typos to appear on a Kodokan diploma?

    OK, now I am officially calling BS.

    Here is Mr Morton's Level 1 GJJ Instructor "certificate" again


    Here is a legitimate certificate of this type belonging to Chet Schemahorn ( http://www.angelfire.com/la3/lagrangejj/main.html )



    And here is a superimposition of the two:


    Notice that Chet's cert contains the full border, name in smaller and different font, and is signed by Rorion and Helio.

    Notice that Mr Morton's "cert" is a cropped fragment of this very image, with his name and Carlson's sig added in Photoshop?

    Total flagrant BS. Shame on you! Don't you know we're smarter than that here?

    Several things strike me as odd about this image from the get go. The area where the name is written in has tell-tale signs of Photoshopping. The text is perfectly in focus, for one -- And there are slight irregularities in the background noise/texture around the name, as well as an odd box-like distortion around Carlson's signature.

    In order to see this better, I ==edited===

    In addition to the odd features of this image, there is the puzzling presence of Clarlson's name and signature on a Torrance Academy document. I phoned the academy and asked them if they ever, at any time in the past, issued any kind of certification with Carlson's name on it. As you can imagine (given the family feud), this was met with an immediate "Never!"

    Please explain.
    This may be the single best investigatory contribution post I have ever read. Astounding. Bravo.

    This (and the reported typo--can you point it out to me?) calls into question his Judo rank as well. What's the method for checking out USJF and Kodokan dan ranks?

    I just spoke with Victor Camacho at the Torrance Academy. He is checking his records for any interaction with Matt M. Morton, but he confirms that it is impossible for Carlson's signature to be on any certificate issued from Torrance.

    I just emailed him the original Morton "cert" image. I'll give an update when he replies.

    Oh man... this is bad on so many levels. Rorion WILL sue over this stuff.

    But, outstanding job on the forensic computer skills!

    I sent Victor Camacho a link to the thread, and an invite to contribute if he likes.
    Does anyone else find it odd that he is claiming Black Belt rank from ROGER? Isn't Roger's academy in bloody London? That's about 10 or so years on the other side of the pond to get that rank.

    I'll do a similar analysis of the other images, but its pretty much a moot point now. He's officially full of ****.

    WW--it's possible that Roger came in for a seminar and promoted people studying at a satellite/affiliate school run by a 1st degree BJJBB (or purple/brown) under Roger.

    2nd line of diploma reads "is herewith licensed to ran in the Second Dan of"
    Note the word is "ran" not rank. Not a spacing error. 4th line begins "or the great progress", not of the great progress.

    No mention of his rank in Yudo? Seems odd.

    I think Asriel trains at Roger's school.
    Maybe he can ask if he has the time.
