Luke Holloway claims to be teaching Military and Special Forces.
Given that Holloway has never served in either capacity makes it HIGHLY UNLIKELY if not ENTIRELY IMPOSSIBLE for someone of Holloway's age and or experience to be employed in that role.
You talk about certified and qualified - don't bullshit me by trying to equate the position of the Presidency of the United States against someone attempting to pad their resume.
The way you try to compare being qualified/certified but miss the all important bit being actually EXPERIENCED.
How much military EXPERIENCE has Holloway to justify his claim of teaching those professionals? How much Special Forces EXPERIENCE has Holloway to justify his claim of teaching those professionals.
I'm military with a career going back to 1983, and Holloway's weapon skills (firearms) are appalling from what he's presenting on the internet.
Given that Holloway lives in Japan, has Japanese students and you are yourself posting from Japan. That your first post just happens to be in this thread, forgive me for being just a little bit cautious about your motives for posting.

Several of Mimo's posts were moved to another thread as they had nothing to do with the topic at hand. That thread is linked above, it It is Fake's post.
If I was to hire someone to work for my company, I would ask to see their resume & do a background check on them.
Holloway's seminars add up to being over $1000. What he needs to understand is that someone interested in attending his seminar is HIRING HIM to provide a service. If he can't supply his resume, references, and pass a background check...
What company of any nature would hire someone who won't supply their resume, references, and submit to a background check? What company would hire someone solely based on "their word"?

At 1m16s in that vid when he goes down on his knees is, in my opinoin, the most useful form of self defense that his skills have displayed thus far.
Here he says:
As certified by the Australian Government in Risk Management, Security, Protection, Crisis Management, Sports Coaching and Work Place Training & Assessment (etc) I was able to structure things pretty easily.. things kinda just.. fell into place.
So he is claiming certification, I have a friend who works for local government in Oz, ill email her and see if she can find out about this kind of certification.
