Now I did have one problem with your site and I'm sure you know what it is since I told you I went to American College of Martial Science. Yes, the pseudo-master part was the only thing I found offensive. Not so much towards myself but to people who have never learned martial arts and are going by your website.
For instance, if I go by your description of a pseudo-master I definitely fit the bill. I love to talk about my old training days, I've been inducted into several hall of fame's, I've got the unaccredited degree, I'm in dozens of organizations, I have pictures with just about all the people you see in black belt, and I'm a fifth degree black belt in numerous styles.
But on the other hand depending on what style I'm teaching I wear a simple uniform with one or two patches. I'm recognize by my peers in all of my organizations. I can jog the mile in seven minutes even though I'm overweight and have medical problem. But if you were to ask any of my students who, are mostly adults they would tell you I'm in really good shape and that I need to slow down because I'm pushing myself too hard. Something that may be really different from your average pseudo-master is that I don't own a actual building to teach from and majority of my students I teach for free and give them everything from the boards they break to some of the equipment they wear. And last but not least you can find all of my instructors with the exception of three because they have closed down there schools and stopped teaching.
So I would like to know based on the information I've given you do you consider me a pseudo-master or my mentor and former instructor XXX and if so why. Because I need to be able to explain to my students who read your website why you consider me to be this "pseudo-master.”
