All Lubbock students who are reading the thread, who still have grievances with Larry or are pursuing legal action, please send me a PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks.
miller what are the division and weight class of the guys your bringng to the tourn
I know for sure there are 2 heavyweights, and I am for sure in the beginner division. There is another of us who is about 170 and there is Miller, who by the way is a human rubber band and he is impossible to tap out. The first time I rolled with him his arms and ankles were turning at angles I can't even comprehend.
Also, I talked to grandnat offline, so I am anxious for him to be there and to get his opinion on my skills, but he has already given me some tips and stuff, so I am excited.
First off, I apologize for using this forum for something off topic, but SDave, is there any way I can talk to you offline about some training stuff not related to bullshido. I posted my email, but so you don't have to search its email@example.com
I have some questions I would like to ask you about training and stuff. Thanks.

Let me direct you to the first page of this thread. It'll be a while till you catch up...
I am bluemans friend here in Lubbock and have a lot of knowledge that eveyone in here is talking about and questioning. I have not had time to complete the research that I feel I need to do to answer most of your questions, as there are so damn many. I am also an ex instructor under Larry Lonis. I also have numerous photos that I could post if I was smart enough to do so. I have inside knowledge of his workings and schools and finances. Tell me so I dont have to reread all the post, what is it that you are looking to find in here. His ranks, schools history, finances. Tell me what it is your looking to find and I will answer you the best I can.
Have you ever seen him compete in a MMA competition? Where, when, and whom did he fight?
No Sir, I have not. I have though heard him and his girlfriend (at the time) discuss a tournament that he was in and he admitted openly that he was beat. I believe about a year or 2 ago he was to fight in a MMA but did not do so and I believe money was why he did not.
Also, since I am in Lubbock, I think I know who agent cooper is. Agent are you in Lubbock also? Sorry, it is hard to keep up with the forums there are so many.
Blueman...did you know Ron Craft, or Manuel?
Also...when you taught for Larry when did he start going by the name Clay and did he explain why?
And, what's the deal with the 4th Dan in his own system? (Tai Gi Gaku Karate Do) Can you elaborate on what he was a black belt in?
Those are just few for now.
Yes blueman..I'm in Lubbock and have been for close to 20 years now.
Yes sir, I know Ron Craft and I think I know Manuel, not sure on him. When I taught for him he went by Larry Lonis, but I just assumed the Clay was a middle name or nickname. The Ta Gi Gaku that he taught was his own system and he told us (students) that it was not recognized and was honest about that part. He stated it meant "of many forms" I think the 4th Dan was either in TKD or Shotokan. I dont remember. As far as Ron goes, he was always straight with us as far as I knew. He never claimed to be a super-ninja death star fighting spider man. He was pretty sincere and reserved. I will tell you this, I learned from a lot of these guys and that was really all I cared about, was learning things I did not know. Please remember that I am borrowing blueman name and PW. At least till I get my own.
Blueman did he mention any details about his rank or participation in "Israeli Attack Safe Defense Systems" while you were there?
Ron did wear a black belt when he taught BJJ didn't he? Did you know that he was only at a blue belt level in BJJ though?
Same goes for Manuel.
Larry supposedly had a black belt in Shotokan from Daniel Thompson....as far as the 4th degree goes...well, that came AFTER he made up his own system.
I learned from a lot of these guys and that was really all I cared about, was learning things I did not know.
Where have we heard this before? Interesting to say the least.
