am I a fraud ?
I have a little problem...:5baby:
I begin my martial arts training with my grandfather who teaches me knifefighting
I have no proof whatsoever of this
I dont have any photos and the people who saw my training hate me, and if you ask them they will call me a liar
I am beginning toteach my son , and I discover that I like to teach
I dont know how to teach if I dont have any background ( certificate ) to show
There someone here who could advise me in what to do ?
As long as you don't claim credentials you don't have it's not fraud.
What are your goals? If you're trying to set up a school in a US strip-mall, then you're going to need some advertising, and "teaches grandpa's shiv" ain't going to attract much business.
If, however, you just want to get a few students and build it up from the ground, then don't make any claims at all, just teach. If what you teach is good, the number of students you have will grow.
Martial arts humility, ftw.
this is exactly What i want to do

Video tape what and how you teach and post it here. Than we might be able to judge.
that is a good idea!!
