I have been trying to avoid this, but I just can't hold back anymore! Is it just me, or is anyone else with longtime experience in Bruce Lee's fighting methods sick and tired of seeing these so-called Jeet Kune Do "masters", "grand masters", etc. on Facebook and other places of the internet who are certified by out-and-out FRAUDS, posting their multitudes of "grand master of this" and "grand master of that" certifications all over the place? It takes many, many years of VERY HARD WORK to "master" anything, much less be considered a "grand master" of something (takes a lifetime)! Some of these guys look like the might be in their late twenties or early thirties! I am saying this right now ... WHAT A JOKE!!! Get real people! I have been involved in the martial arts now for FORTY-FIVE YEARS! While others have referred to me as a "master", I do not use the title, as it is more of an honorary thing anyway as far as I'm concerned! Whatever happened to HONOR and HUMILITY in the martial arts? Sure, someone may want to be certified in Jeet Kune Do, but if the certificate comes from a FRAUD, then what good is it? Either GET REAL and become certified under someone who is LEGITIMATE, or be prepared to one day suffer the consequences! If you are one of these people, you are just making a fool out of yourself and ripping other people off! Time to WAKE UP and smell what you are shovelling, because it doesn't smell so good! Sorry to be so blunt, but I am sick and tired of FRAUDS in the art that I have worked all of my adult life to be qualified to share with others! No one is going to be upset with you for deciding to change and do the right thing, but many are going to be upset with you when they find out how bad you have ripped them off! GET REAL and do the RIGHT THING or start calling what you are doing SOMETHING ELSE! I don't expect much response from this, but if it makes you uncomfortable to read it, you may want to think about some things ... as in making a few changes! It's never too late to do the right thing!
