    Hakeem...I knew you would say all that. Please read again the part about IMPLICIT versus EXPLICIT.

    You can call yourself a Grandmaster all you want. You have no credibility.

    If you are taking money from people to teach them based upon your claims of grandmastery, then you are a fraud.
    You knew cuz your psychic; right. I assure you I will enjoy the rest of this site BULLSHIDO and finally give you people a rest and concede to your wishes to let this thread go. But I must retort once more just for sake of an amusing cyber-debate if nothing else.

    http://www.hypnoathletics.com/
    I have NEVER led ANYONE to believe that I hold any LEGITIMATE martial arts credential so your argument has NO WEIGHT! Through careful re-reading of the posts about me on this thread NONE of your arguments against have any weight what-so-ever. And by legitimate I am sure you mean from some bureacratic, established organization that oversees tis sort of thing. Everyone that takes the time to discuss it with me knows I abhor that type of sytem. I do my best to trump it every chance I get.

    "I do not claim any loyalty or lineage to any martial arts, combat, or fighting groups or organisation whatsoever with the exception of my own that I have founded; including the mercinary group "Red Coin" (blood money), International Martial Artists Rebellion (I.M.A.R.) and CapThaiKido (CTK).":new_infin

    EVERYONE who speaks to me about fighting skills knows I am an outcast self-taught rebel who has decided to bounce around to learn from different people and have enhanced my natural abilities through persistent, logical and intelligent practice with many different sparring partners, street-fights, tough-mans as you call them and other events.

    YouTube - Re: ninja canadian - talkin shit again
    This is a great video, which by the way, one of this guys videos was posted on BULLSHIDO to support a ninja thread. SwordSage is his YouTube name. It is basically my train of thought in fighting.

    For you to say that it is not about credentials anymore, but about credibility is merely backstepping because you know you are wrong.

    My credibility is shown by the OBJECTIVE FACT that professional boxers, black belt martial artists and kickboxers, jiu-jitsu practitoners who I work with at Bodies in Motion Encino and Northridge, call me first to teach their classes when they need a sub when many others are available to choose from. Oh, and none of them know that I call myself a GrandMaster because the only place that was ever publicly announced was a here on BULLSHIDO and before in a PRIVATE message that then became public. So it is not that they call me to teach for them because of a title they think I hold or anything I have IMPLIED.

    It is because of postitive results, which lends itself to positive feedback and my continued success. I am an outstanding practitoner of whatever I choose to do and help other people by sharing my self-taught knowledge in Healthy-Living and Self-Defense.

    They would not continue to call me if I was not doing a great job. This goes for other systems I have gone a non-traditional route to learn such as Yoga and Pilates, which I have been teaching for more than 4 years now. People have been hurt by others with certifications in these disciplines, like personal trainers, coaches, fitness class gurus etc and I have never had this happen, and recieve high praise and regard for this. This can be verified by calling the establishment.

    I know the human body very, very well because I choose to spend every day and more than 15 hours every day dedicating myself to the study of it and the mind and spirit. I study, practice and teach every day. This very simple formula: STUDY-PRACTICE-TEACH; I have been using daily and with the goal of engaging only in transactions that benefit all whom it effects as a foundation. I stick to these philosophy religiously. It serves me quite well.


    BTW. Many of my opponents were trained wrestlers from USA wrestling, some boxers from PALs and other gyms and martial artists for example, from Steve LaBalle's East Coast Karate and Capoeira Explosion to name a few. The fact that I only have that event on video, and that it was not sanctioned by some red taped governing body means nothing about credibility. It is only your opinion.

    Regardless of what you say, I have pressure tested myself in a way I felt appropriate in the street against dangerous people who of course were non-compliant and in amateur, tough man and other forums.

    I have factually, and anyone who knows me through every stage of my life from 10 yrs old forward will testify that I have never, ever, missed a day of training how to fight. Even when I was in jail, homeless or the mental hospital. It is this very dedication which led me out of that crap.

    I thank you guys for your dilligence. But by not considering the facts that I do not claim a lineage, and that I never said I got credentials or credibility from anyone, is a LIE on your part and IDIOCY from anyone who would follow that lie.

    To make your arguments against me you have lied or misread what I have posted which is still published and available for examination.

    All you people are defending are simply your own opinions about how a martial artist or a martial art develops. You are DEAD WRONG about me, nothing you write or say can change that.

    Stick to the Ashida Kims, Yellow Bamboozlers, Ninjers, Head stomping Willie Dennis' and other fakirs. The only thing SAD about this thread is that some fool decided to start it in the first place and that I actually thought you were intelligent people who were either mistaken or mislead; and attempted to remedy such mis-representation.

    Apparently what you are lacking is the understanding through experience what someone who is dedicated can do on their own BECAUSE YOU HAVE NEVER ACCOMPLISHED OR DARED TO ATTEMPT TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT I HAVE ENDEAVORED TO DO WITH MY LIFE AND EXPERIENCES.

    The evidence shows you are just a bunch of conformists who live in a limited world of brainwashed fantasy SCARED and terrified by anything that does not fit in with your childish status quo and box that you choose to live in.

    Your story about your father was your usual pathos. When presented with logical questions requesting explicit responses, you presented an emotional anecdote to deflect the inquiries. Matt Morton loves that tactic.

    Throwdowns are group events. You show up and work out/roll/spar with other individuals. Your participation would have answered all questions about your credibility categorically. All this information has been readily available to you. It is not our fault you disregarded the dozens of throwdowns held annually. We do not bring the throwdown to you...you find one in your area and attend. This is not a secret. You would have to deliberately avoid this info for you to not have it. None of this is my opinion, it is objective fact.


    If the environment was any different, you would be at MAP

    If you have ever accepted money to teach anything you do not hold legitimate credentials in, than you have committed an ethical trespass in my opinion. Your own moral compass is between you and your conscience.



    The claim of "Grandmaster" implies a ranking and/or certification from a regulating group of people qualified to evaluate you. You do not have to tell an explicit lie to be dishonest. If you have ever allowed anyone to believe that you hold any legitimate martial art credentials, than you have lied IMPLICITLY, as opposed to EXPLICITLY. It is just as dishonest.

    THere is an easy way around this. I don't care WHAT you call yourself, and I don't care WHAT you claim to know, if you have a record. If you claim to have been taught turkish oil wrestling from space monkeys while traveling the 8th dimension, it would not matter if your VERIFIABLE fight record was 21-0. Your record becomes your credibility and your credential.

    It is OK to be self-taught IF you pressure-test yourself. I don't know how to make this clearer to you:

    It is not our fault you came here claiming to be a grand-master. It is not our fault that you spouted bad poetry and silly anecdotes when asked for clarification. It is not our fault that you kinda made yourself look like a fool when you first showed up. You want us to treat you nicer? SHow us where we are wrong. Go get yourself a real, sanctioned, full-contact fight record and come back.

    Unfortunately, you have an uphill battle with us. SOrry about that.
    No one was lead to a specific conclusion of me officially teaining Government or Law Enforcement, my original post says the word unofficially:

    "I have taught mixed martial arts unofficially to members of the Dade County S.W.A.T. team, Broward County Sheriffs Officers, (despite my record United States Navy personnel..."
    http://poems.hypnoathletics.com/2006...pthaikido.aspx
    And so because you have seen it "so many times before" then because A, B and C did it then Hakeem is also? A bit hypervigilant maybe? You guys spend your time looking for BS and I think you may find it even when its not there. Except what you may at times fabricate, as with me. Is it intentional? perhaps your own insecurities? I do not know. But I am sure that it is wrong in my case

    BULLSHIDO brought Hakeem to BULLSHIDO. Y'all came and found me, which is actually quite flattering. I did not come here claiming to b a GM, someone at BULLSHIDO, found an online post titled something like "Backgrounder for my Potentials", a private message to people who wanted more info about me and so I wrote it; - then, it showed up in a public forum somehow.

    Uphill battle: OK with me. Never inplied anything, the posters here ASSUMED. It was assumed that I was passing myself off as someone who came from a lineage of a regulating group, or as you say "a ranking and/or certification from a regulating group of people qualified to evaluate you", when in fact, the post that most people started to shit on me for says:

    "I do not claim any loyalty or lineage to any martial arts, combat, or fighting groups or organisation whatsoever with the exception of my own that I have founded; including the mercinary group "Red Coin" (blood money), International Martial Artists Rebellion (I.M.A.R.) and CapThaiKido (CTK)."
    http://poems.hypnoathletics.com/2006...pthaikido.aspx

    I mean, for someone to assume I implied anything with that is just plain ignorant.

    And accepting money for something I have no legitimate credentials in? Come on! Who can give me legitimate credentials in a practice I created except for me? Like it or not. I am great at what I do and have proven myself as an instructor of Healthy-Living and Self-Defense.
    YouTube - KappaGuerra: Capoeira, Boxing, Wrestling - The Beginning [1999-2001]


    Never went to great pains to imply that any credentials were handed down to me by anyone. NONE of my comunications to anyone come near to implying this.

    Everything I communicate to anyone who pays me or I train for free, EXPLICITLY knows that I have no more ranking in any form past a white belt.

    I am very proud of the fact that I am self-taught and make it clear to anyone that I meet, that this is the case.

    I even explain that I believe that the GRANDMASTER title is self appropriated by me because I have a unique set of skills that are the result of my personal research and persistent, hard physical training and labor.

    Again:
    "I do not claim any loyalty or lineage to any martial arts, combat, or fighting groups or organisation whatsoever with the exception of my own that I have founded; including the mercinary group "Red Coin" (blood money), International Martial Artists Rebellion (I.M.A.R.) and CapThaiKido (CTK)."
    http://poems.hypnoathletics.com/2006...pthaikido.aspx

    My "bad poetry" is your opinions BTW and not shared by the majority of my readers.

    The silly anecdotes were because I was messing with you guys cuz I figured you for a bunch of dumb-assholes who did not deserve my respect, due to being new to this forum and not understanding why people I don't know would go to such lengths to dis someone they have no experience with.

    As for looking like a fool, well, that's just my dry and questionable sense of humor. Many people, such as the pro boxers and martial artists I roll with feel just the same about you guys when they have read this thread. It is all subjective.

    Why does there have to be a sanctioned record in someones bureaucratic organization for something to be a tested Martial (combat / war) Art (skill / practice)?

    I have used it under "pressure tested" conditions with non-compliant and trained opponents in full contact and other events as the above videos demonstrate.

You didn't lie...you implied. Spare me the over-intellectualized response about what you actually said and meant. The implication was obvious, as we here have seen it too many times before.

    Have won lots of amateur competitions and never claimed that beating drunk people or my crazy dad was the foundation of my practice, it was simply an inspiration to train and better myself and move on from such a life and environment. I have a lack of knowledge of TMA perhaps, but not of fighting and systematically training and documenting my progress to create my own practice.
    Your story about your father was your usual pathos. When presented with logical questions requesting explicit responses, you presented an emotional anecdote to deflect the inquiries. Matt Morton loves that tactic.

    As for the throwdown in my area, one of the very first things I did was to give my phone number and the location of my gym. If anyone really wanted to get me into a throwdown, or give me the opportunity to prove my skills in the so called "ego-free" environments it would have happened then. But instead, a bunch of cyber trash-talking went down that just lent itself to me not wanting to be cooperative.

    I actually like this site a lot and think it does a great job of exposing real frauds and MABS. But I have never defrauded anyone, taken their money and hurt them. Never made false claims. Everyone that trains with me experiences positive results that last. I have never injured, lied to, or degraded anyone I have shared my experiences with.

    I just told the truth about my life and the inspiration it gave me to train mostly on my own. Sure my life was screwy and wierd, but who's isn't? Not many. So all I did was tell my story.
    If you have ever accepted money to teach anything you do not hold legitimate credentials in, than you have committed an ethical trespass in my opinion. Your own moral compass is between you and your conscience.

    How is that fraudulent when by my own admission I have less training than a 12 year old TKD Black Belt? That is all in my online writings. Never claimed to be a master of capoeira, or muy thai, or aikido.

    I did claim to be a GM of a practice that simply had a combined name, which served the purpose of reminding me of the 3 TMA philosophies that I was looking more deeply into.

    You are an adult right? It is your responsibility to check the thread or get in contact with people organizing the event.

    Nope, not the other way around.


    But instead, a bunch of cyber trash-talking went down that just lent itself to me not wanting to be cooperative.
    You realize this is why you are called arrogant. You not being cooperative does nothing. The event happened, people had fun, you chose not to go.

    It is not, I repeat not, a posters job to get you to show up. If you wanted to go, you would have appeared.

    It is that simple. Anything else is an excuse on your part.

    The end

    The fact you think your absence, and lack of cooperation means anything shows your arrogance.

I used to train with two marines...that doesn't mean that I can say, "I train the US marines."

    The truth is, (by your own admission) you have less training than the average 12-year-old TKD black belt. You can obviously kick high, and you obviously have a very high opinion of your own skills and your personal intellectual development. What you have failed to do is convince a group of individuals knowledgable of the subject you profess to be expert in that you are in fact anything more than a garden-variety dilletante in that regard. I have asked politely for you to clarify exactly what it is that makes you a grandmaster. Your response has been bad poetry, pathos-laden allegory, and unverifiable anecdotal evidence.

    You display many of the classic traits of a martial arts romantic who wants the skills without the work. Have you won any competitions? Hold any titles? Defeated hordes of ninja? What have you really done? Fighting your drunk father, while an inspiring story, doesn't exactly mean anything. I was bouncer, and I have fought with dozens of drunk people. They are easy to control and victory is a relatively simple thing if you know what you are doing. The fact that you list this as an accomplishment is indicative of your lack of knowledge on the subject.

    I suggest you attend the next throwdown in your area, and allow us to see if you are as good as you claim to be. You may be an extremely competent fighter, and if you are you deserve respect as such. But you sound like a teenager with a Bruce Lee hard-on eveery time you speak.

    If I am wrong, than it should be a simple thing for you to prove it.

    FOr the love of....

    Hakeem, it isn't even about credentials any more. It's about credibility.

    You want it? Legit credibility for being a real fighter, from real fighters? Go out and get some real fights. Not local frat-boy toughman scraps, not anecdotes about your mis-spent youth; real fights. FIghts against opponenets with skill and training, with lots of witnesses. That's where credibility is.

    Right now, all you really are is another guy with some athletic gifts and more ego than sense about it. You have potential...go out and explore it if you dare.

    Otherwise, man, let it die. This is getting kind of sad.
