    Cool. I would like to hereby mention that I am a 3000th-dan practitioner of any style you can think of.

    Please note that by your suggestion, good form would dictate that you would have to have a similar ludicrous rank to make an accusation.

    I am a college graduate about to begin a TA position during grad school (undecided as to where I am going as of now). If you would like me to purchase a diploma mill PhD, so I too can hide behind a fake doctorate, then I will in order to have his "rank".

    Nope

    No, I just happened across the World Hombu Dojo Association website and was doing some research about them.

    That's true

    What I meant was someone highly ranked such as a "Master." I didn't literally mean you need to be the Grand Puhbah.

    This doesn't make your assertion any better.

    Thanks for the clarification, but honestly, you're still wrong. It is precisely your attitude which is a huge problem in martial arts, and allows everything from resume-padding all the way up to outright fraud.

    "Surely you can't be questioning Sokitumi Sensei! He was training with Bruce Lee, Morihei Uyeshiba and Mas Oyama before you were even born! Perhaps in another 20 years or so, you'll have attained the experience and depth of training to make such an outrageous accusation, but until then, sit in your horse-stance, and make sure your payments are in on the first of every month."

    I stumbled on this thread after Goggling "Frank Williams & scam",

    One of my close associates called me & said her clients had been defrauded out of money by a Premier Martial Arts school in eastern N.C. so I researched, low & behold I found an old buddy at the helm, Mr. Frank Williams.

    Just a little reality context on Frankie Williams as I've personally known him for years. He suffers from a mental condition that presents itself in numerous forms. These manifestations include mania,delusions of grandeur & several other characteristics that lead him to see things differently from others. He is a different man when he is on his proper meds, but he often neglects using them because he fashions himself a worldly warrior above such things. He is an important figure in the Havelock N.C. region & he provides a positive outlet for many of it's citizens. That being said it's common knowledge to those in the true martial arts community that he has basically paid his way to appear highly decorated. There is no malice in his intent but he is definitely unstable a lot of the time. I plan to visit him soon & discuss the whereabouts of funds for some of my colleagues, I will have this video recorded to have a legal piece of evidence if it gets dicey. I will link said video here for you all to see when the event takes place.

    Peace
