I am so fed up with all these self proclaimed asses on facebook. All proud members of the mutual ass kissing society. That means there is a whole group of people with ziltch martial arts credentials except for the titles they bestow on themselves."Ill acnowledge your'e a master if you acnowledge Im one too". Now all these jerkoffs take turns sending each other master certificates one after the other. Plenty of "in the spirit of budo" and "ous ous" Meanwhie I looked at plenty of videos and saw nothing but a bunch of fat, out of shape wanna be's pretending to be FMA and JKD instructors. Wearing gi's no less. And with more electrical tape stripes on their belt than you can imagine. If they stayed with their Karate I wouldnt mind, but. I learned JKD and Kali from the TOP. Dan Inosanto and Paul Vunak.Ten years, not one weekend! If anybody knows good Kali from bad, and good JKD from bad, its me. Im not saying Im the best there is, Im not. I have plenty of seniors in the JKD/Kali world. Im very good at what I do, thats what I hear. Blade Smart is a brand name, thats all. Its not an excuse to make my self a founder and grandmaster.There is only one Sigung/grandmaster in JKD and he's dead. Period. Sifu Chris Kent talks about all these wack jobs that think you can just put another word in front of JKD and make it your own. Call it something else but not JKD. There is only one JKD and that was Bruce Lee's. No combat JKD, no street fighting JKD, no ultimate JKD. Just JKD. Nobody is just happy with the truth. I want all my students and friends to know, everything I do must have the utmost in integrety. I will never join any organization to be a master, dont want to be recognized as a master especialy with some self proclamed wanna be's organization. My knowledge is Bruce Lee to Dan to me, Bruce Lee to Richard Bustillo to me, Bruce Lee to Larry Hartsell to me.Bruce to Dan to Vunak to me. No middle man in my lineage. Wow that felt good. Thanks for reading, Barry.
