It's true, Grand Master O. E. Simon, founder of Temple Kung Fu & Simon's Karate Studios is set to be inducted into the Canadian Black Belt Hall of Fame this year!

He is on the list of inductees as Dr. Olaf Simon:

How come every Martial Arts 'Hall of Fame' is full of people nobody has ever heard of?

Kind of an oxymoron, with an emphasis on the moron.

To me, a 'hall of fame' indicates just that. Bruce Lee, Dan Inosanto, Bob Wall, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture and other defining MMA athletes, even Steven Seagal. These are famous martial artists, not 'Harry from down the road who has been teaching TKD for 30 years' . By all means acknowledge that sort of thing if you wish, but not with a Hall of Fame, as its misleading.

I'm disgusted with the 2 HOF I know of. It's more about politics and who coughs up the money for induction. Meanwhile far deserving karateka are left out.
