    ..of course there I was trying to help the jerk, and oh look, he is still a jerk.

    Not Morton but Moron!

    i'm gonna give them a call or an email.

    but this is what i bet happened, he gave them his nidan cert from moo sul kwan and a check for 70 bucks and then tested for a sandan in TKD. thus continuing his process of laundering rank.

    You forgot the part where he doesn't actually test because of his numerous injuries. :icon_wink

    actually, wasn't the "test" whether or not he signed his name on the bottom of the check? coupled with whether he properly addressed and stamped the envelope?

    I suspect its was whether the Paypal amount met the minimum requirements for said dan grade.

    I suspect it will only be a matter of time before he starts claiming JKD rank by doctoring some of Dan Inosanto's certificates.

    He connects his claim to a specific school & instructor. My guess is that this instructor doesn't know who Matt is, or, if he does, has not actually given him this rank. The school is 2 hours from his home. I highly doubt he's made regular trips there to train & then to test.

    I think it's safe to assume that this instructor is not "in" on Morton's story any more than the Gracie's or Mr. OlenKamp (sp?) was.
