Has anyone ever heard of a hapkido or jung sim do grandmaster by the name of Doug Vess. I've ran across a self-proclaimed 7th Dan who claims to be the personal disciple of Doug Vess. Supposedly, he teaches on the East Coast; however, I can find no information about Doug Vess on google or a host of meta-search engines. I've called several schools back across the country that teach hapkido and jung sim do with no one who has ever heard of the guy. If anyone has any information, please respond. I'm curious to hear what you may have to say. I'm starting to think that the gentleman who claims to be his student is probably a fraud. Possibly, this Doug Vess does not exist. You never know, considering the proliferation of charlatans in the martial arts community these days.
