$10,000 Challenge to William V. Aguiar III!
When Grandmaster Lawrence Day brought us all together again in the Year of the Black Dragon 2012 each of us who were named to the Council of Patriarchs was given a chance to address the membership. When my turn came I said this, “Remember always that the name of our brotherhood is fighting. One of the reasons I learned Karate was so I didn't have to put up with bullies. Win, lose, makes no difference. If you stand up for yourself, you earn respect.”
Posted below is my $10,000 Challenge. This page has been on my website since 1995. There have been no takers. Not many people have the resources to set up such a match but, it will not be held under any other conditions.
The few that did have the money, didn't have the balls...
For many years ownership of the infamous Black Dragon Fighting Society, founded by Count Juan Raphael Dante, has been in question.
Several years after Count Dante's death, a one-time friend, William V. Aguiar Jr. of Fall River Massachucetts, who raided Dante's dojo and absconded with a large collection of memorabilia which he planned to later sell for profit, claimed to be the new Supreme Ultimate Grandmaster of the BDFS. This claim was later disproven in Federal Court.
His son, William V. Aguiar III's, claim to the Black Dragon Fighting Society name and logo is based on several fraudulent misrepresentations and has never been effectively used in commerce by him except to harass and extort the true members of our most ancient and honorable martial arts fraternity.
He would like to pretend he wants to "go old school" and "settle this on the mat" to see who is the real master and worthy to lead this club. Well, I'm old, and I've been to school and I'm fed up with your bu****it! Here are my terms to get in the ring and kick your candy-ass. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! Put up or shut up!
As an additional stipulation, William V. Aguiar III will sign a notorized legal document transferring all rights to the BDFS logo, name and trademark to me in perpetuity BEFORE the match, because he won't be able to sign after.
"Now, I do not make this Challenge lightly. Nor with belligerence toward anyone. I have proven myself too myself many times and I know that the true test is getting up each day to joyfully participate in the sorrow that is one's life. What these Challengers want is to do that, to prove themselves they are worthy and overcome their own insecurity and lack of self-confidence. And, I say unto all of you that this journey is an internal one. That peace and harmony come from within, not by imposing your will on a world that will not change to suit you, but will continue to change in spite of you. But rather by making this inner journey and facing your own dark side. That is the lesson of all religions, of which martial arts is but one. Of which Ninjitsu is but a part, of which I am but an infinitesimal speck. Certainly not worthy of all this bluster and rancor.
I have never done anything to any of you people. All I have done is try to perfect my own character, live a fair and honest life, and share what little I have learned with those who have gone to the great trouble of seeking it out. For this crime I have been called a fake and a charlatan by those have no idea where I have been or the things I have done. I have been robbed by my publishers, cheated by the government, and endured the slings and arrows of those who have not one-tenth my skill. I have not asked anyone to accept what I say as The Truth, only as A Truth. I have demanded no tribute, conquered no lands, imprisoned no people. I am the innocent victim of attack by those who cannot or will not behave in a civilized manner.
So, if you write in popping off at the mouth, looking for a lesson, you've have come to the right place. I don't take tests, because I have nothing to prove. I give tests, because I am a Teacher, and have State certification to prove it! So, if you want a piece of my ass, come on up and get you some, 'cause I got plenty and I love to share. But, don't bite off more than you can chew. 'Cause you ain't seen bad yet, but it's coming and it looks just like me. You put up the money and I shall be most happy to embarrass you in front of all your friends. 'Nuff said."

I William Aguiar, am the Head of the Black Dragon Fighting Society. The most senior member is John Cole who was a Green Beret serving through the 60's & 70"s.
John Cole earned his 4th to 6th Dan black belt from Count Dante and William Aguiar
was already a 2nd Dan in Shorin-ryu while serving in Okinawa and judo/juitsu 1st Dan between 1964 & 1975.
He also taught and ran a B.D.F.S Dojo in his city he lived in under Directorship of Count Dante and William Aguiar.
John Cole also trained me growing up and mentored me all my life to take my position as B..D.F.S head. John Cole is the oldest known in the B.D.F.S and is the most senior member 81yrs young,
There is a man Donald Miskel who claims to be the head of the B.D.F.S. but was a white belt student in Count Dante's Dojo for only a few months he claims to be appointed to head of the B.D.F.S. family by Lawrence Day who admitted he only met Count Dante 4 times so how did DONALD MISKEL AND LAWRENCE DAY become heads of the B.D.F.S. THEY LIED.
Lawrence Day now deceased rip.
That dose not stop Donald Miskel from still being a Fraud.
Donald Miskel has no legal authority, membership or rank at all in the B.D.F.S
The youtube link shows Lawrence Day saying he only met Count Dante 4 times and Donald Miskels skills.
With this being said as head (William Aguiar) of the Black Dragon Fighting Society & owner with legal authority over the B.D.F.S.
Declare, John Cole is the head of the B.D.F.S FAMILY.
Count Juan Raphael Dante (born John Timothy Keehan; February 2, 1939 – May 25, 1975) was an American martial artist figure during the 1960s and 1970s who claimed he could do extraordinary feats such as Dim Mak.
Keehan was born in Beverly, Chicago, on February 2, 1939, to a well-to-do Irish American family. His father, Jack, was a physician and director of the Ashland State Bank, and his mother, Dorothy, occasionally appeared on the society pages of the Chicago Tribune. Keehan attended Mount Carmel High School and boxed at Johnny Coulon's 63rd Street gym, and after graduating from high school he joined the Marine Reserves and later the Army, where he learned hand-to-hand combat and jujitsu techniques. He trained under various martial arts masters during the infancy of Western interest in Asian martial arts during the 1950s. Most notable of the early masters he trained under was sensei Robert Trias. Keehan, after gaining his black belt in karate, went on to become a sensei himself.
Keehan was the Midwest director of the United States Karate Association (USKA) until 1962. He left that organization in 1964 to form the World Karate Federation. In 1990 a new World Karate Federation unassociated with Keehan's was formed.
In Chicago, Keehan co-promoted America's first full-contact style martial arts tournament at the University of Chicago on July 28, 1963, and hosted many other such tournaments during the 1960s, pairing practitioners of different styles against each other.
Keehan also worked as a hairdresser.
Keehan grew disillusioned with conventional karate instruction's focus on ceremony, tradition and protocol over what he felt to be "effectiveness" and began developing his own style that he would promote as "street-effective". Through these efforts, he developed a system that became known as the Dan-te system, "Dance of Death" or sometimes the Kata-Dante. Theoretically, by learning all of the steps of Keehan's "Dance of Death" you were thereby an effective fighting master.
In 1967, Keehan legally changed his name to Count Juan Raphael Danté, explaining the name change by stating that his parents fled Spain during the Spanish Civil War, changed their names, and obscured their noble heritage in order to effectively hide in America (the surname Dante being in fact of Italian origin). (Count Dantès is the protagonist of Dumas' 1844 The Count of Monte Cristo). Keehan was prone to boasts that furthered his reputation, his most notorious one being that he'd participated in secret "death matches" in Thailand and China, winning by killing opponents before crowds numbering in the thousands.
He began heavily promoting himself via comic book ads as the Deadliest Man Alive. One had only to mail order for his instructional booklet World's Deadliest Fighting Secrets (in which he outlined the "Dance of Death") to also receive a free Black Dragon Fighting Society membership card. These comic book ads account for much of Count Dante's lasting notoriety in pop culture.
The various enmities culminated in the Dojo War incident of April 24, 1970, where Dante and some of his students performed a dojo storm on Green Dragon Society's Black Cobra Hall. According to press coverage, upon entering the school, they claimed to be police officers and attacked the rival dojo's students. The brief battle resulted in the death of one of Dante's friends and fellow sensei, Jim Koncevic.
Former mob lawyer Robert Cooley states in his autobiography When Corruption was King that he represented Count Dante during the trial following the 1970 Dojo War incident. Cooley recalls that Dante was ultimately acquitted but not before both sides were given a stern lecture by the judge citing everyone at fault. Cooley also suggests that Dante was a mastermind in the notorious 1974 Chicago Purolator vault robbery in which the amount of $4.3 million was stolen. While not one of the suspects in the trial, Dante was allegedly questioned by Illinois grand jury and ultimately passed a lie detector test. Dante died shortly before the trial was completed which resulted in the conviction of all but one person involved.
Count Dante died in his sleep of internal hemorrhaging caused by a bleeding ulcer, on May 25, 1975.
In 1972 Count Dante LIVED half in Fall River Mass. and in the mid west where he was planing on moving to Fall River for good while in Fall River Mass. he did several local promotions and shows with William Aguiar
