"Obsession Isn't Healthy, Boys" detailing the timeline of harassment from members of BSMA
"The Hypocrisy Of The Internet" detailing the events surrounding Dale Dugas and his faux challenge
Since the beginning of Dale's challenge, he has asserted that he was going to fight both myself and my instructor. I even offered him the opportunity to visit us both at the same time when Hatfield sensei was here (August 28th to September 4th). Now, after we went back and forth for awhile I then met Dale's demands to simply name a time and place instead of "pushing it back" three weeks until Hatfield sensei was here, because "a real man just fights and doesn't postpone," is what I kept hearing. Of course after naming such, Dale failed to show up not once but twice. I won't go into too much detail, as this has all been documented in the article above, but anyone with any measurable critical thinking ability could figure out that Dale had no intention of showing up and was simply blowing smoke as usual.
Just in case he was crazy enough to actually show up on a random night of the week, I then stated that if Dale (or anyone from BSMA) did not show up at an agreed upon time, he would be trespassing. This is simply because I run youth classes, and I don't think any reasonable adult believes any children should be exposed to this nonsense. This was on August 10th (the dates will become important shortly). Even still, he asserted he would see both me and Hatfield sensei "in three weeks" regardless of that statement about trespassing so it was clear he had no issue with it and would still grace us with his presence.
But then, something miraculous happened. He disappeared! Dale went from making videos nearly every day for over a week talking about how he was going to cripple both of us, right up until August 19th when he just stopped. He went silent without a trace of him on BSMA, and certainly no mention of seeing us soon. Maybe he was busy training, preparing himself for the 1970s no-holds-barred "open combat" kung fu death match we were about to engage in? Only one way to find out, right?
That's a negative, ghost rider. The entire week Hatfield sensei was here came and went without a hiccup, and surprisingly without a single word from Dale since August 19th.
Now, in fairness his admitted alter ego "Gerald Greysmith" claimed to have pancreatic cancer and it looks like the acupuncture clinic Dale works at is going under, so perhaps he had more important things to attend to...
Fortunately, my ego is not so fragile as to be shaken by those who hide behind fake profiles and beat their chest on the internet without even so much as having been in the same room as me. Throughout all of their failed attempts of declaring us "frauds," and everything else they've done in an effort to smear our reputation, we are still here. We are still teaching, traveling and sharing. Our very existence is the bane of theirs, and success truly is the best revenge. So BSMA, keep yapping like the chihuahuas you are, the big dogs have better things to do.
