    I second the notion, let's start a separate investigation for them.

    I agree completely. I was just pleased to see that he Tai Chi instructor at that university was not claiming some sort of legitimate academic rank but rather that it was an honorary title. You know, silver lining and all that stuff...

    You might consider enlisting the help of "quack watch" as they have assisted in the exposure to several diploma mills in the past.

    You know, I tried to give him benefit of the doubt, too. I figured maybe, just maybe, he really did have legit training under a fake black belt and bought nutrition certificates out of a naive decision to do some resume padding.

    But seeing he also bought two other certificates, it's looking a lot less innocent. Especially considering he is using his certificates to prove his "authority" to the fucking cult he never has denied running.

    And by the way, when I was in Nashville last year, the local news was doing a special on people in jail for opwning diploma mill certificates, so it's not like it never happens.

    1. Cameron, for all of his crappy ukemi, isn't claiming to teach judo, nor is he claiming a rank in judo.

    2. JF is not exactly into investigations, even if they deal with judo. Rather, the members would encourage those to report an offense to one or all of the NGBs and let the NGB deal with it.

    3. It's not apparent that these fake degrees have impacted the judo community.

    Cameron came onto a thread that was laughing at the concept of Combat Ki. He wrote a few worthless posts that demonstrated his desire to have cult like followers instead of teaching martial arts. Cameron hasn't been heard from in several pages, though his cronies have been a bit mocked. Somehow, I think the only interest you'll get from the JF is from a dual member with an interest in and the time to dedicate to exposing Eastern Martial Arts Brainwashing Fake Credentials Academy, or whatever it's called.

    ^^Um, what?

    I didn't mention Judo Forums, I "seconded" the notion to start a separate investigation on Bullshido concerning the diploma mill, which has been started. Look before you post.

    Did you post in the right thread or are you mixing up two different threads?

    not to u1ysses, but the guy who quoted your post I just quoted, endorsing your post with a big hug among a multitude of smilies, and then said that he was only endorsing a separate investigation into diploma mills...

    what? if you wanted to restrict your approval to just doing a separate investigation, then why quote the entire post? Alternatively, why not state you're restricting your endorsement to just the idea of doing an investigation of diploma mills, and not the idea of trying to get the JF involved?

    IIF, I couldn't remember the names of the diploma mills that were brought to my attention by Cameron. My bad, I made up a name for the illustrious FL institute represented by a private aol email account. I haven't looked enough at BS to see your threads dealing with combat ki and all that hooey. Again, my bad.

    Sorry to bump an old investigation, but there is a strange new development to this:

    Remember how the site was down? Well, the site is back up, proudly displaying certificates we already called him out for:

    http://creotology.com/Grand_Master_C...;s_Career.html

    In a message to me over Myspace (page 10 of this thread) he claimed:

    I have not been involved with the juko-Kai for about 13-14 years and at that time it was with a Soke Pate who was under Sacharnoski....My new site will reflect only my rank in kempo-jujitsu and Yawara Jujitsu and that is all I will teach if, I ever decide to reopen a school.
    Curiously enough, most of his certificates are Judo-Kai. However, this time around he kept the Sex Way House certificates off.

    And it also appears that his "Martial Arts" school is back up...except minus the martial arts. Apparently, and correct me if I'm wrong, he's just using "martial arts" as a way to establish credibility in order to be a motivational speaker and/or cult leader. I'll allow you to read for yourself:

    http://creotology.com/blog/at-las-ve...dents-a-month/

    In other words, you pay him to stand around and breathe.

    Thoughts on what to do next, if anything?

    report him to the state licensing board for practicing psychology/social work without a license. Here, he's admitting he's fucking with people's brains to help them attain whatever he thinks is mental fitness. Last I heard, mental fitness, helping people with self confidence and self esteem issues was the domain of mental health professionals. A black belt in a dubious martial art hardly constitutes the academic qualifications for this.

    First , I'm still trying to learn how protocol goes here so be patient if this goes a little slow....
    Early 90's when I first met him. He use to frequent a topless bar I worked at. To be specific, some times we would see him every night at
    the club. A place called Bottoms Up. I can tell you that his conduct often warranted expulsion, And on two incidents that I am personally aware of was asked to leave. How do I know this? I was the one whom escorted him out, along with his little groupies.
    Now I don't have to get in to specifics as to what it takes to get boot scooted out of a bar, let alone a topless one. Just a glimpse of what
    Grandmaster Pooba left round these parts! :glasses2:
