Nope. The highest Cerio ever promoted anyone to is 8th degree.
Did mattera promote Paul Taylor to 9th?
Or, did PT go to shaolin temple?
He is my favorite person. Isn't he yours?
From what I remember he got his 10 from the Abbot at Shaolin Temple and he just went from 8 to 10.
I think Demasco was given rank the same way after he performed the Iron wire form.
I question DeMasco's certificate though...all the characters say is "this guy does cool stuff."
The abbott of the shaolin temple awards kempo people 10th degree black belts??
Man, some things are just priceless.
LOL! I know...seems interesting, doesn't it? How can one get a rank from someone that doesn't train in the same system at all?
Gotta love it when you have lots of money to spend on rank...
Day by day reading this board, Yohan slowly learns the source of my cynicism.
He gave it to Himself. I've been to the united studios web site in the past and he claimed cerio gave him his ninth degree which is false cerio promotted anyone past 8th degree.
This can definately be an answer at this point, seeing as we have seen it numerous times on this thread.
What the hell? Didn't I say somewhere earlier that it was awarded to him by Jesus? Why are we still discussing this?
Like it has been mentioned before, those who give rankings to themselves are very suspect, others who are not in their system seem to be clearly better at seeing it though.
The world is not 6000 years old, man did not sin, and we are not talking about a one either, are we? Hanshi is a good name, one not usually taken lightly. IMHO
So what is the problem, clearly some sort of mistaken bias.
Yes you did...I think it was the Holy Spirit that did it though...or maybe it was God.
Good reputation from where? HIMSELF!! Black belt magazine which he bought!
The only reputation Mattera has is being a con man.
=X...man, there needs to be a face with a shush thing or something. lol.
I think that it's TOTALLY legit for the abbott of the Shaolin temple to award people 10th degree black belts in KE?PO! :Angel:
