If you have a few hours/days to spare take a look at the following forum thread:
The juicy bits are in the more recent postings. But really, this is the kind of thing that can potentially ruin good martial arts. In the past I thought the subject matter of the forum (a particular individual and his organisation) were amongst the good guys, but it appears not. Alarm bells first began to ring when I recently read that the person concerned acquired a 10th Dan and got himself involved with those silly World Head of Grandmaster Jolly Nice Time Soke McDojo Councils.
I hope it gets cleared up soon and I hope the martial arts community isn't too badly effected by it.
Crazy world! Whatever. I just promoted myself to 17th Dan. Would you like fries with that? :-)
