It's amazing to me how anything can be bought.  I know that I'm working hard to earn my black belt (got the bruises on and off to prove it).  If it were really that simple, everyone would be doing it.  Nothing like earning and deserving something.  I've always been taught that it takes blood, sweat and tears to earn something worthwhile.  I know that is true here, in Ironman, and in life.  Keep training to remain strong.

aloha,
Brandi

The chances of those certificates having credibility are the same chances that my check is in the mail- slim and none!

Mark,
Talked to Mike last night and he told me that some people are not sure what NWMAA is doing on ebay. Let me assure you and anyone that you have a conversation with about NWMAA, that we ONLY give black belt certificates to qualified black belt instructors/students.  If they use our ebay certificates, which is the same price as our regular price as seen on www.northwestkarate.com they still must prove to us that they are actual certified black belts.  They can do this three ways:
1)  Send us a copy of a signed of black belt certificate   75% do it this way
2)  Give us the name and number of there instructor or person that promoted them %15% do it this way   and
3)  Send us a home video showing us that you know your curriculium for your rank
10% di it this way.

Reason for the Board to approve the ebay certificates is to reach out to more black belts world wide. We had 986 members before ebay with about 85 being black belts, now we have over 1,000 with the 42 new ones all black belts. We have 38 states now with black belt NWMAA members and when we decide to go Nationwide, we will have roots set in many states. Hope you can explain and understand our motive. One day we will be a world wide organization, but to do so, we will need spokespeople through out the world.

Lot of Love and Respect
