suuuuuuuuuure. me too! um...yeah...too bad there isn't some kind of a sarcastic face too
Your right. Has anyone seen this certificate for 10th????
Nope. Never seen it for 9th either.
I remember Demasco being promoted to 8th degree, and then all of a sudden Mattera was a 9th degree. I even heard a rumor that he Mattera went to japan to get the degree, but I'm pretty sure somebody must of mixed that up with some china trip story. Anyways, if you are a master at 5 degree, how can you be more of a master? Those 6th and up stripes are just politically driven.
I agree with you there 100%.
No one has. It doesn't exist.
Makes sense to me
This what he probaley did.
I don't think he is a Tenth degree because no one has seen his Tenth Don certificate of rank.
Ah no. Cerio cut all ties with mattera back in the early 90's.
Funny! He could have saved himself $100,000 or so if he would have just put the stripe on himself oh wait he did do that.
Dude that is too funny and proabaly true.
In most other arts and Counsel of Sokes (Grand masters) award one to the level of "Above Ranking" (10th Dan). I've never heard of any govening board do this for any of these Masters. Except for Nick Cerio who was the "Real Deal".
cerio was the real deal, i concur with you on that!
