Thomas Daw: Fake Martial Arts Grandmasters and their Death Threats

Be very careful, faithful readers. Do not let anyone ever threaten you in person or online and ignore it.

There are many people who claim high level martial arts rank who are in actually nothing but liars, cheats and conmen. They belong to these fake martial arts associations in which they cross grade each other in their martial arts and accumulate a ridiculous amount of rank that would never be humanly possible to achieve in one lifetime.

As many of you know, there is a infamous fake martial arts “Grandmaster” fixated on me, who loves to post up some rather disturbing posts using some of the most horrific words you can say to another human being in English.

This fake “Grandmaster” is one Thomas Daw. He lives in St. Austell Cornwall, UK.

Thomas Daw is not what he claims to be.

He claims that he is a “certified” 10th Dan Grandmaster.

Daw is no such thing.

I first encountered Thomas a few years ago while friends at Bullshido.com were investigating some fake martial arts rank mills here in the US; the VKA (Valadez Kempo Association) and the SKKA (Shorinkenjitsu Kempo Karate Association). His name was being associated with these martial arts fakes.

There seems to be many of these pay to play rank mills popping up here in the US and other Western nations. Sad, when you think how this effects the martial arts industry and makes fools of the people who actually train and teach real systems of martial arts.

One of these fake martial arts rank mills is the Black Dragon Fighting Society (BDFS), which uses the signature of a dead martial arts teacher John Keehan, who was infamous for changing his name to Count Dante. Keehan was not what he claimed to be, and any of his toadies are not what they claim either. BDFS offers rank in ANY martial art you want rank in. No matter if they teach it in reality or not. This association is only concerned with your check clearing than telling the truth. Daw is a paying member and had his fake rank recognized in an effort to appear legit.

We found out Thomas had posted up some videos on youtube in which he claimed showcased his 10th Dan level skills.

In actuality these videos showed a man moving around with the body awareness of a rank beginner not that of someone who is a supposed 10th Dan “Grandmaster”.

Yet when Daw was contacted and asked about his training background, the only answers that were provided is that he trained in Tae Kwon Do and received his 1st Dan Black Belt and then split when the training became difficult to create 3 new martial arts systems. He claims to have created Daw Ryu, Orange Dragon Karate and UK Karate.

When asked about his supposed 10th Dan rank, Daw responded that he was also an 8th Degree Black Belt in Snake Fist Karate along with other ranks in fictitious made up martial arts systems he was crossed rank in.

I kid you not.

Snake Fist Karate.

This is a home study course you can purchase from the SKKA Academy. You can find links to this at Snake Fist Karate showing you that you too can purchase this material and receive your fake made up martial arts rank as well.

Over the years, Daw has not only slandered and libeled me, he has done it to a few others. When Daw draws a bead on you, he emails you calling you a Gay Pedophile, a Troll Cunt/Pig, Human Scum, Inferior, etc.

He seems unable to communicate in any other way. For the record, I have never threatened Thomas as he has done to me multiple times. I have not called him anything other than a fake fraud who is not what he claims to be.

If you want to check out what others have been subjected to as well as gain a little different perspective, check out my friend Jackie Bradbury’s blog at Thomas Daw at the Stick Chicks Blog

After you have offended his fake made up martial arts lineage, in his blog posts and emails, he will go on about how you should kill yourself and that you are nothing but scum and inferior to him and his incredible skills.

His nickname for me is Troll Pig. And he has signed off his posts and emails telling me to die Troll Pig. I have emails where he goes on and on about how I am just a fat Troll Cunt or Troll Pig.

Ahh, don’t you love how this certified martial arts “Grandmaster” acts?

Daw has posted several times that he has NEVER been beaten in a fight.

This is due to his never having been in a real fight.

When people start posting up about NEVER having lost a fight, or never been scarred or injured in a fight, they are taking the piss (a British expression meaning someone is pulling your leg…), as real fights are a far cry from what you see on movies and TV where people are not seriously injured compared to reality.

Last Friday, Thomas decided that he could not handle the truth of his not being a real martial arts “Grandmaster” any longer and decided to take it upon himself to tell the world via his WordPress blog, that I was DEAD.

You read that right, Daw’s title to his blog post was Dale Dugas is Dead.

Yep, this was the actual title of his blog post.

Check out the screen shots included on this blog that are unaltered and show exactly what Daw posted on his MFMASociety WordPress blog.

Daw said when he saw me that he “was going to kill me and put my head on a pole”.

He also said he “would cripple me”, and that “Bruce Lee could not beat him”, as he is beyond him in skills.

Now, not only is making death threats illegal on the internet, it is illegal to do it in person as well.

In Florida the statutes are pretty clear on this subject.

Here is the actual statute on threats:

784.048 Stalking; definitions; penalties.—
(1) As used in this section, the term:
(a) “Harass” means to engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such person and serves no legitimate purpose.
(b) “Course of conduct” means a pattern of conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose. Constitutionally protected activity is not included within the meaning of “course of conduct.” Such constitutionally protected activity includes picketing or other organized protests.
(c) “Credible threat” means a threat made with the intent to cause the person who is the target of the threat to reasonably fear for his or her safety. The threat must be against the life of, or a threat to cause bodily injury to, a person.
(d) “Cyberstalk” means to engage in a course of conduct to communicate, or to cause to be communicated, words, images, or language by or through the use of electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person, causing substantial emotional distress to that person and serving no legitimate purpose.
(2) Any person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person commits the offense of stalking, a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
(3) Any person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person, and makes a credible threat with the intent to place that person in reasonable fear of death or bodily injury of the person, or the person’s child, sibling, spouse, parent, or dependent, commits the offense of aggravated stalking, a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.

What Thomas Daw did was to commit a felony crime here in Florida.

I imagine similar laws being on the books in the UK.

Thomas, of course, deleted his entire collection of WordPress Blogs, as they showed a history of cyberstalking as well as his death threats. He does this. He will post up a big bad threat and then remove it and then claim that he never did any such thing. Delusion is strong with Daw, yet he fails to understand how technology and how it works against him.

So beware, faithful readers of fake martial arts “Grandmasters”, they are not what they claim to be. And seem unable to do anyting but threaten your life rather than tell the truth.

FYI, I have contacted my local police force here in Tampa and made a formal complaint against Thomas Daw.

I also contacted the Police in Cornwall, UK as well.  As I want Thomas to get the obvious psychiatric help he needs.

It does not excuse what he did, but I have no real ill will towards Daw.  I want him to get help.
