What about "reputable" orgs. that send letters stating that you have been nominated into a "hall of fame" then add "send a check for X amount of money and you will be inducted into the hall of fame" ? Isn't that Fraud? Also, what does that say for the martial arts instructor that goes for it? Isn't that Fraud? I was always under the impression that there could only be ONE PERSON inducted into a "Hall of Fame" as "Instructor of the year". I always thought that Martial Arts was about Honor , not Ego . I see nothing wrong with making a living by teaching. But to take advantage of the publics "lack of knowledge" is sinful.
