    I have to agree with some of Abels comments, Cy likes to call people cowards and liars when they disagree with him, but is unwilling or unable to back it up.

    If the instructor was legit, you would have been able to find him in short order.

    If Cy was making his experience up, he would be an idiot. He is smart enough that (if he was going to lie about his experience) he would have picked an art where he could lie with impunity. There isn't exactly a shortage of them.

    Likelyhood at this stage, however, is not enough. If it were anyone else, the procedure would be to investigate the irregularities in the claims. And so it must proceed. Can't say I envy the position you are in at the moment Mark, but keep up the good work.
    It is what I hope to be the case. However there is a problem with that position. I can't say enough how much I want to drop this, but I have to be the EXACT same way I was with Matt or Ralph, or Steve, or now Chuck.

    Yet I suspect I am going to have some people upset with me no matter what I do.

    Also, as far as the "harping" on Judo, it is I, not Chuck or anyone else here, doing the investigating. So I reject your premise on both counts.
    Really? So if he is lying about his Judo(as painfully little as it was) he then is lying about everything? Thats nonsense. Find a better argument, I did.

    Exactly, its what he DOES with the info he gathers thats in question. Endlessly twisting and churning info or ignoring basic facts that would end the argument are not in the realm of "investigation".

    Well i believe MTripp will do his best to clear this up without being biased one way or another. It would be troubling if Cy was only junior rank and passing himself off as Kyu rank because in my xp there is a huge difference between the two. I help teach our juniors and our junior brown is the equal to a orange or green belt in the adults if they are lucky.

    I'm trying to stay out of this thread but, this right here is the perception he has put forward to his detriment.

    Interesting, but you mis-stating my position then refuting it is called a straw man, and again I reject it.

    I also reject what YOU claim to be nonsense, or feel to be "better."

    The plain fact is, I can, and will, know the truth about that claim. No one can hide it, or spin it. YOU can say it doesn't matter, but there are a great many people, who are very afraid of how this is going to turn out. I submit that they disagree with you as well.

    You see, the idea that one of the head people on the site that exposes false claims, is actually making false claims himself, that would be the end for him. It would have to be. THEN, there would be a justifiable reason to look into everything he did. I think that is a waste of time, but it would have to be done as the credibility would be shattered at that point.

    I care not one wit if you understand that, or think it valid. I assure you, THAT is what is being discussed in hushed whispers around here.

    But do go on with what YOU think is important......

    PS: You are now on ignore; and clearly you are projecting who YOU are into others.....
