Anybody Know This Guy
« on: June 04, 2003, 10:43:38 AM »
Grandmaster Smith: who appears to be all of 17 makes a lot of claims, such as 9th dan in Shotokan, 7th dan in Aikido.  
What got my attention was his claim to be 6th degree in Kajukembo.  Perhaps our youngest Sigung?
Anyone know who he is?

He would be funny, if I didn't think he might be able to get away with it.  I love the fact that there are only something like 3-4 members of his "organization".  Personally, I would be shocked if any of his claims are legitimate.

The choice of the name "Smith" is at least a wise one.  Hard to prove wrong with such a common name.  Is this his real name?  Somehow I doubt it.

I love the part about... no, you don't have to prove your rank... we "trust you".  Just pay your money. ;)

Well, I just tried to send our young GM an email.  It got bounced back.  Perhaps he already has enough students.  Or maybe someone has already dealt with him!!   ;D

Interestingly enough, he actually looks a lot like one of my students.   ???   (James, is that you?   >:( )

The time doesn't match with his age, he should be 70 years old

It takes many wise acts to be considered a wise person, but only one foolish act to be considered a fool
