    "Deserve titles, credibility, and notoriety..."

    They have them. Sifu, Master, Grandmaster, Senior Professor, etc. If you are not satisfied with Grandmaster, then who knows why Doctor would do anything for you. Furthermore, it is a title you did not earn. Just because you have mastery and have earned titles in one area of life (martial arts) doesn't mean you deserve titles in other areas of life (academia). This is ego, pure and simple.

    Also, this may not be a direct scam, but you also have to take part in this "Hall of Fame" program. I'm sure this benefits the program somehow. Always read the fine print.

    Yeah, my colleagues in academia aren't asking to be made Shihans, and when I taught at West Point I didn't ask them to make me a Lieutenant Colonel. These are separate ideas!

    And when I was a TA and "covered" a class or two for a professor while they were out of town, I never once thought I should be called professor.

    They are very separate ideas and constructs and sets of requirements.

    People who truly work hard for Doctorates go thru the channels and then some guy who is not satisfied with his title collection needs another one?!

    I guess it can't be helped. The more unlegit you are the more you try grasping for titles to try to prove you are legit.

    Its so sad that my mere words fall short and even typing about it.

    When I was in Civil Air Patrol, I was never at any time under the illusion that my CAP rank of 2LT afforded me identical respect and benefits to those of a US Air Force 2LT.

    This is the same kind of thing right here and there's no need or use for it.
