Does anyone have documented proof of the 2nd and 3rd Dan rankings achieved by Capt. Smith? There is ample proof of his Shodan being awarded in Japan, but shortly after the award of Black Belt rank Capt. Smith appears in America, and is given a Captains commission. Thereafter, I have no evidence of his higher promotions or even his belonging to, or working out with, any Judo organization. All replies will be treated quite seriously, as Capt. Smith was one man ahead of his time. Thank you, Tom
