FLASH NEWS UPDATE......
KARMA DOES HAPPEN!!!!!!
There is a Blog Website, "Bullshido" that has more than several people intent on destroying my life. It is all based on supposition and has NO BASIS on FACT!
The 2 culprits are:
"Stunt Thug" Charlie Parrish and
Chuck Hardin, so called "Bullshido Investigator."
Let's go over one at a time shall we?
Charlie Parrish, basically a frustrated wanna be actor that dwells in the realm of "B" movies doing stunts and whatever he can. I met him through a great stunt talent, Tina Mahler, who I had hired to be in a film . The rundown that I got was...he was a great coordinator, military guy, and had not worked for 5 weeks. GREAT, let me help him out! An audition was happening at my gym, The House of Champions in Van Nuys California. I invited him and his crew. Most of them were very good. I found Charlie to be most lacking. We did knife and pistol disarms for the camera. (he looked pretty pathetic on the video)
I brought a Special Operations, Large table book to show the director and video guy what we could bring to the shoot, and to ask them in particular what thy wanted.
Weeks went by after the audition that I helped run. Then one of my actor friends informed me that the filming had already started for the project, and he thought I was part of it. Come to find out, I was "backstabbed" out of my position by who? Mr. Unemployed for 5 weeks...Charlie Parrish. Soooo, the UPM, unit production manager, Jacov Bressler, felt bad and invited me down to do stunts.
I showed up on location an was greeted by Mr. Parrish and his British speaking crony wearing a martial arts t-shirt.
Charlie and his buddy pulled me aside. Parrish then asked if i had a problem...and insisted he had not stolen my project from me. He then said he had researched my Military Backgound, and thought I was full of shit. He then questioned my martial arts background and said he researched that too. (contrary to what Charlie Parrish said, he issued no challenge...I would have gladly accepted)
Mr. Parrish insists that I made claims about what my background was. Regardless of the truth, the only damming proof he continually points to is a Bio written for the House of Champions website, that I DID NOT WRITE. Including mis-spellings and wrong dates. (it happens daily in Hollywood...stuff gets printed WRONG!)
Research? He does not have my real legal name, correct birth date, social security number. He states he talked to Delta Force developer, now Hollywood producer, Eric Haney...and Haney did not know who I was. REALLY. REALLY? Why would Sergeant Major Haney OUT an operator? Much less to some half cocked numbnuts questioning credentials, that is full of shit himself? Parrish states: "I showed Haney a picture from the Frank Dux video...Haney commented that Billy was wearing a Black Beret with a 7th group flash on it, not good." HELLO, adjust the contrast on your monitor, the Beret Was GREEN. This was raw video that had not been "color corrected." In indoor conditions, hunter green can look black. Thought an industry pro like Charlie could figure that out.
Martial arts background? I invite anyone to ask each Master that signed off on my "Shihan" 5th degree masters ranking I was awarded at The House of Champions from the United Martial Arts Master Council, if I am the "Real Deal." The Chief Grand Master, Bill Ryusaki spent several weeks watching me teach, perform, and running an all Black Belt class that he headed, to determine if I deserved the rank. By the way, in HIS Black Belt Only class, I excelled as one of the top of the ranks. In one of his badly informed blog posts, he makes fun of The House of Champions by saying the only person of note from there was Cecil Peoples, and then said he was not noteworthy and a bad UFC judge. Master Peoples was and is a pioneer in the martial arts. He, at one time was ranked the #1. tournament competitor in the days of Chuck Norris, Joe Lewis and Bill Wallace. Other notables from the House of Champions? Peter "Sugarfoot" Cunnigham, and Benny "The Jet" Urquidez to name a couple of world champions.
I was ranked number one in my region for 2 consecutive years 1977-1978 by Karate Illustrated Magazine in Professional Karate Kata Competition. I was also NATIONALLY ranked. Feel free to ask karate legend and writer for Karate illustrated, Roy Kurban about how good I was. He's in Arlington Texas.
Oh and back to Charlie Parrish. On the latest project...a REALITY SHOW, he was on..."Special Forces Mission" or something like that, they quote him as saying he was...get this.."A close quarters hand to hand combat specialist." Looking up that US Army MOS...huh? Is that an 18 designation? FULL OF SHIT.
The open challenge is still there Charlie Parrish! Martial Arts? Okay, a fight, no problem! Bring ALL your industry friends. All your stunt thugs. We could even charge admission for charity. But wait, there's more! Before we step in the ring...kata, that's right, you do one, i do one...self defense, including weapon disarms and knife., Then there's Judo throws, I will call them out in Japanese, you do it and then you say one in Japanese, and then i do it. But wait, since we are talking MASTER GRADE MARTIAL ARTS, weapons...I do staff, sai , and kama...you decide which one to show your prowess in ok??? Also, in the ring, you make the call. Muay Thai? Full contact Karate? MMA? Bare knuckles everything? Let me know. Enough on Charlie Parrish, can't wait for the beat-down baby!
Now the lovely Chuck Hardin...can you say bullshito.net? Latest article at the bullshito website, is an expose on the TRUE CHUCK HARDIN! A PIGVOMIT FRAUD. He has co-erst, intimidated and extorted from everybody he has so-called investigated. Check it out at: www.bullshito.net He is being sued for illegal practices, slander, and libel. No investigator's license, to name a few things. He is also a part of the POW network...last check, was an outfit that ran out of a garage.
Before Hardin wrote his libelous article about me, he tried to extort false information from me via email. His email basically stated:" If you do not change your statements about "Frank Dux" and say you lied for him...I will have to write an inflammatory article that will ruin your life. You have 48 hours to change your statements." Okay. Everything I have stated about Frank Dux has already been proven in a court of law. I was a sworn witness...there is a "gray area of witness tampering here.
#1. Hardin never did, and will not ever have my REAL legal name. Billy J. Burke is my show business name and my name used to protect myself.
#2. His assumption about my birthday is wrong too.
#3. He does not have my social security number .
Without ANY or ALL of that information...how does one conduct a true and full investigation. Much less make any assumptions. When i was in Dallas Texas, with the Special Forces Association there... My best friend, Captain Brown, 12th group , and I, were suspicious of a guy that had just signed up with the association and group (a different 12th group team). We had his 1st and last name and rank. WE TRIED TO GET INFO ON HIM. We even went as far as Fort Bragg. And guess what?NO INFO (no soc number...no info!) He later broke his leg in a parachute jump, and he was rooted out then. Brown is in Hot Springs Colorado and can verify that! (he is 5/19th grp special forces division commander)
How many REAL OPERATORS give their real names on the internet or anywhere? Why risk your life and the safety of your family by exposing any real information. Does Mr. Hardin work for THE BAD GUYS. If he can get EVERYTHING ON ME with his limited skills and information...I guarantee the Chinese Government, Colombians, or Mexican cartel members would love to hire him.
Chuck Hardin, names some sport judo associations etc. that will verify all Dan rankings in this country. Really? There are Japanese organizations like the KODOKAN that have a hard time keeping up with their ranks. He threatens: "If anybody studied under Billy Burke their belt rank does not hold up." Amazing! Many that have studied martial arts with me over the years have become champions, not only in tournaments, but life. My Masunaga sensei from years ago told me: "the only thing a belt does is hold up your pants." Anyone that has trained with me can vouch on my martial arts prowess. Start at the top with Grand master Bill Ryusaki. In fact, by request, I can give everyone a list of all the masters that were on the board that appoved my 5th degree, master Instructor's black belt.
Mr. Hardin and his cohorts at Bullshido.com have been found totally lacking in their martial arts expertise and ranking. Much less, illegal attempts at information gathering and printing plain bullshit about people. Hardin is in BIG TROUBLE and being sued by others he tried to defame!
I have nothing to prove to Bullshido.com, or anybody. I need not expose myself for people's lack of knowledge.
UNFORTUNATELY, in this day and age of internet blogging, anyone can write anything and can claim to be an expert, AND DESTROY a persons REPUTATION. I made the mistake of being the strong and silent type. THIS DOES NOT HELP. My ex-fiance said that said she read through 48 pages of bullshit on me and DID NOT KNOW WHO I WAS!!! Amazing! Her ex, Mr. Esteban Cueto is in the STUNT COMMUNITY with Charlie Parrish. HE POINTED OUT THIS GARBAGE TO HER AND WAS IN BED WITH HER IN LESS THAN A WEEK. Maybe he should join Charlie in our Martial Arts match. WHAT A SNAKE!!!! (this blog crap was written in 2006!!!)
NEED TO MAKE A COMMENT? OR GIVE ME A QUESTION? I WILL ANSWER EVERYTHING ACCUSED OF ON THE DEFAMATORY RAG SHEET, HYPE-DRIVEN BULSHIDO.COM Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I AM FIGHTING MAD! I LOST WORK, THE LOVE OF MY LIFE BECAUSE OF THIS BULLSHIT. PAY BACK AND VENGEANCE WILL BE MINE . PRETENDERS WATCH YOUR BACKS!!!
