...Or why it is always a good idea to do some basic research prior to taking up a martial art, rather than after the fact.
The site avvo.com has a question from someone who apparently has had a run-in with an apparent "kung fuka".
First off - the individual claimed to have paid in the excess of 10 grand (holly smoke!) to be taught by a fake 10th degree kung fu black belt - only to find that the master was an obvious fake and that there's no Chinese governmental kung fu organization that awards black belts.
The person managed to get a third of the truly insane tuition fee back from filing a lawsuit through a small claims court.
A few minutes of research could have saved the individual of being royally taken for a ride ... kung fu style.
