I read the threads you send me and I belive I have to answer you to erase any misunderstanding
Excuse about my bad english.
First at all I really appreciate if you don't publish or refer this content for two reasons, lets see how serious you are:
1: Its about Mr Luke Holloway and he is the one who have to answer propertly, not us
2: You are the ones who made the accusations so as far as I now you are the ones who have to prove it with more proof than "aparent silence" on the others or asking us.
Menawhile all we have to be carefull becouse all you are accusing not only relating to Luke, also could unbalance the fighting for lives soupport,would not be that way or be fair, but you know that it will.
Once I recived the mail and read it I send it to Luke, also this answer becouse I belive he is the rigth one.
Seems that your mailing want to put us a distrust sparkle more than collect info and I dont like at all..as I told you once all this is finished we made the decision we want untill that you are asking at the wrong ones.
As seems its all about credentials I give to you us before say anything more:

I prefer not translate them for misunderstandings with my bad english.
We made the Instructors courses on Belgium and we were really enjoy it, we where people from diferent profiles some were special forces and some who, I can tell you, they have to know real how to fight on streets becouse of his jobs require (I'm not gonna give you names for the same 2 reason I mentioned before and becouse I guess you send the email to everyone on raw combat so let they answer)
We where involved on martial arts more than 20 years and we prove a really bunch of diferent disciplines (kendo, kempo, krav maga, a long etc...) even if we dont have credentials about them, its normal when you are involve in it.
We like Luke's techniques and yes, may be there some things you can make different ( I never train a martial art who have ALL effective in ALL the scenarios, belive that is a wrong assumption) but I can tell you that he REALLY know how to teach, motivate and give the structure of a class a method and a sense of what is teaching you, like it or not, believe it to be effective or not. and as far as I know this is all about.
It is also noteworthy, at least I know the respect he has for the other disciplines and he not believe that he is teaching of "the ultimate system", and if you really are in the martial arts world, which I have no doubt that, you know that this attitude is VERY difficult to find, at least in Spain. ("mine its the best others sucks!" wrong but normal attitude from "masters" even students)
Also tell you that at least that he wasn't focus or concern on take money from us for the trainings, as a lot of "masters" from others disciplines like to do and also i REALLY apreciate.
I have no idea if the allegations are true or not but today the teaching method seems effective our students like it and will continue using on regular clases
Please don't continue writting us and contact with the one you have to.

I don't think these people understand that if they perceive they are legitimate, they need to honestly appraise the information about Holloway. There is such thing as guilt by association, and he will drag them down.
Thank you for replying,
I appreciate English is not your first language.
I have covered some of the points you raised below, but do not feel obliged to respond. I will not contact you further.
Despite what you may think, the people asking questions, want the truth, whether good or bad. You people are in the best position to provide your side it.
All the best.
Just to be clear Luke has been notified by others previously and chose not to respond.
The Charity and Martial arts are not dependent on each other, I personally appreciate that at heart you are good people, though some would suggest that the charity could be used to add legitimacy to a questionable situation. The real test would be if the charity work survives regardless of the outcome of the martial arts issue.
In regards to 'proving it' I feel that the people have provided proof, if if you feel they have not, you can request that they do so on the forum. If they fail to provide proof their claims will be removed.
