Per a prior post , If you know someone has stolen rank what should the people who have earned it do?
Stand by and let the injustice slide?
Say your piece and let others say why did you do that...he is not hurting you..
I say rank Thieves hurt all who earned it.
MY point here is if we let fakes take over then our art form DIES. Because no one will repect an art form that lets everything slide.
I know a person that I have personlly trained /and trained with (36) years I know he is now wearing 4 stripes. Which means S I - Senior instructor who a year ago could not get though orange / purple sheet. No 5 or 6 forms but he is now wearing 4...
Lets try to keep our standards up and to boot out the rank thieves.
PS my rank comes from Richard Planas.
20 years + in the arts
4th degree black belt
declined Rank from Shurinji Kenpo ( 2nd ) and Kun Tao kung fu...( 5th ) Did not earn them no need wearing them.
