Kokusai Dentokan Bugei Renmei

Osu,

Im still working on the website, I have only about 60 percent of the photos up i intend to put on the site. Sensei Hobbs has many more that are not digitized in his records. I can not find any more pictures currently on file that actually show him being awarded his other ranks, but ill see what i can do, since so many seem to think i and my teacher are not what we say we are.

I'll get more pictures if they exist of him receiving his other certs, if someone wants to see them. Check the site out completely. You'll see Seiki Toma, Shian Toma, and many others.

Yeah that's him and that's Toma......which proves he and Toma were in the same room and nothing more.
You're not getting my point about the "photo op" scam people are doing these days. Read my post about Mr. Sugino's dojo again. I had my photo taken with Bob Sapp........so wwhat...
Also "master" Hobbs needs to lift up that left arm since the tonfa shouldn't be pointed downward. He also might want to fix those wrists too. Those are mistakes my kyu ranks make.

Seriously, dont waste your time. I am going to unsubscribe to this thread as it will never go anywhere.
There is no way in hell a guy that is my age or maybe a little bit younger could have "a" 10th dan let alone 4 in a legit way.
 
Osu,

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO READ THESE TO A CERTAIN DEGREE!

Well i tell ya what, anytime you are in the St. Louis area stop on by and I'm sure I can arrange for you to see them. I am not a liar and neither is my teacher. Do with that what you want. The truth is the truth even if you dont accept it.

Osu,

I have spoken to my Sensei and he expected no less, because of all the people out there that "claim' such things and when a real one comes along they dont believe it. I will be posting to the website within the next day or two, full color photos of all his major Dan certificates. His latest ranking in iai jutsu he has not received yet from japan, but those will follow.

Byrd Sensei,

In the broader scheme of things, I think Mr. Rousselot's approach of making unsubstantiated accusations, while admitting that he is unwilling to make an effort to objectively review any evidence, does more damage to his own reputation than it does to anyone else.

Unfortunately, there will always be people like Mr. Rousselot out there and they are a complete waste of time in my opinion. In a way I pitty them.

Respectfully,

Dave Fulton

The certificate on the far right of the webpage

http://www.dentokanhombu.com/sensei.htm

Or shall we call it how to spot the fake dan certificate.

First of all dan certificates from Okinawan or Japanese teachers are hand written.not printed out with a word processor like this one is.

The kanji at the bottom for Hanshi look as if they were written by either a child or a foreigner not an adult Japanese/Okinawa

This seal or hanko as they are known is an extremely cheap variety that one buys at a 7-11 in Japan and is not the kind used on important documents or dan certificates.

This is too easy to forge or copy and would never be used on a "real" certificate.

This reads it is certificate number 2.
That means that dojo has only given out 2 certificates in its entire existence. It has nothing to do with the dan grade or how many of that dan grade were given out it denotes how many certificates have been given out.
Kind of like the number on a check has no relation to the amount of money to be paid out..its for tracking purposes.

This one is a 10th dan and was awarded by Bruce Heilman of the IKKF..last I heard Bruce was an 8th or 9th dan so I wonder how he can give out a 10th dan.
