absolutely not, i just like knowing who people have trained with and who i know. its nice to find people who maybe know my instructors or i know theres.. maybe make a few friends. no competition from this guy...

To me, that's just a big block of names and grades, and doesn't mean anything. How long did you train under each of these people? And to what level? From a quick glace at this list, it could come across as dojo-hopping.

nah, no dojo hoping, most of these were separated by years. i actually hold my dan rank under grandmaster giacobbe. after i earned my dan ranking i than began to study various other styles but hold no significant rank in any.

It's only important if a significant amount of time was spent with these teachers. I could write a 'who's who' of Karate Sensei, who's courses etc, I have attended. But it not the same as week in week out training.

most of them i have spent alot of time with, others are seminars/classes i took.
