So . . . . Justin Martin? Is that the heavyweight from UFC 12? In 1997?
Regarding your post Enlightened1:
Just to let you and everyone here know that I know who you are. You are either Justin Rose owner of Bushidomartialarts.net or one of your students. And if this is not you Justin Rose or your students than let me be the first to apologize. But only you would know so much yet so little about me. Either way I am considering legal action regarding your post on Txmma.com and Bullshido.net. And I like to thank the guys at Bullshido.net for making me aware of this Libel issue. I'm sure you guys on this form are all witnesses of the accusations made here. I will need help from Txmma.com and Bullshido.net to get the ip address of Enlightened1. I will email you guys personally regarding this matter.
Just a little history about Bushido Martial Arts and Justin Rose for you Enlightened1 your instructor Justin Rose used to work for me. I gave him a job at my school as an instructor and also at the staffing agency I used to work for. I tried to help him as much as I can and also paid $1000 to Mike Bussey for the mat that you guys are rolling on. Hopefully when you are cleaning it Enlightened1 you will think of me next time. We decide to go our own ways and I wished him the best of luck. I've heard many things from students that left his school and came to mine. I'm sure he did the same from mine. You can't please every student, nor can you make everyone a fighter. But hearing about this post from one of my students really distrubs me about you Enlightened1.
I don't register my school on this site here for a reason. I like my privacy and my business is lucrative like you said it is. That is why i didn't care what you guys said about me in the past. Since I am opening 2 more schools and I own 3 already. Yes I do hire insturctors to work for me Like Danny Torres or I would send my instructors to learn. If you look at all the other schools besides mine. I'm sure they don't claim to be an expert at everything. But I do notice that Mr Rose does (Bushidomartialarts.net). By the way before I hired Mr Rose from Bushido he was never able to provide me with any cerification regarding his Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Aikido, Boxing, Muay Thai or Judo. So before you accuse me of being a fake look at yourself and your organization. I'm not accusing anyone just assuming at this point. Why would some one spend so much time talking bad about some one. Just like the Allen Mohler incident I'm not saying I'm as good as Allen but does that seem obvivious why people do that. So I say to you Englightened1 if you're done counting your nickles and dimes HERE'S MY CREDENTIALS FOR YOU. And one more thing only your instructor would know this much about me because he only assume of what he didn't know.
1996 Olympic Demo Team Coach- Ming Tran, Joseph Tran, and members of Champion Martial Arts Academy was on the 96 Olympic Demo team the owner Bing Tran paid me personally to come and train the team at their school
in Littleton Co
Trained various State and National Champions- Derrick Loo, Daniel Loo, Ritchie Gallegos, Patrica Gallegos, Lim Nguyen etc ( just to name a few of my students from the top of my head)
1993 Open International Kickboxing Studio in Aurora Co ByIliff and Chambers ( my partner was Gerald Curry ranked 3rd best kickboxer in the World and was also the Chief of Police at Lowry Airforce Base)
I don't know where you got the 3 mos of training from Enlightened1 only your instructor knew I trained with Danny Torress 2 yrs ago for 6 mo not 3 months but he did not know that I owned and operated A Kickboxing School back in 93.
I trained with Danny Torress 2 yrs ago and Rick Alexander for 3 months to prepare for a fight. After I was able to tap Adam Arredondo pro fighter on Sherdog. With 3 months of Freestyle wrestling from Rick Alexander I sent Tony Bernal to fight at Steve's Armstrong to fight instead. I didn't feel like it was fair for a professional instructor to fight guys off the streets sometimes with no real training. I'm not the type of guy that would lower my belt just to get a win. And I already have too many medals and trophies at my school. Too bad they didn't give away belts back then.
By the way I never have seen any of your instructors accomplishments. And I only trained Tony for 2 or 3 month of MMA which is true because he was already a Tae Kwon Do student with extensive fight experience in TKD. After his debut at Steve's Fight Night I didn't feel the needed to prove myself anymore to your instructor that Tae Kwon Do students can't fight. But to Adam's Arredondo credit he did get me back the following Thursday. That's why Adam and I have been good friends since then
US Armed Forces - You don't have to be in the military to compete. It was held at Lowy Airforce Base
Battle of the stars- My gosh my partner Gerald Curry and Larry Shepperd host this tournament
Lone Wolf Tournament- Was held after first UFC held at Denver Co there was a
craze in Denver, Co after that. Bing Tran hosted that tournament and I also was one of the sponsoring schools in that tournament. Enlighted1 I still have the flyer if you like to see it.
International Fighter and Team Vietnam Coach- The U.S. Open is held every year which brings black belts from across the world from each country and their respected fighting teams. Yes people do get knocked out( Need I say more)
Last but not least trainer of various amatures, professional, and UFC fighters- look up Justin Martin 6'0 186 lbs on sherdog fought in PRW, WPC, IFC 5,3,2,1 and UFC 12 Judgement Day. Justin Martin lived and trained with me in Aurora, Co for several years and moved to Texas and trained with Andy Anderson also a UFC fighter.
The reason I don't mention his name to your instructor Enlightened1 is out of respect for Justin. He would still be fighting if it wasn't for a terrible accident that has parlyzed him for life. I don't need to make gains out of his suffering. I moved here to Texas on behalf of Justin Martin and open my first school at The Gym owned by Mike Bussey back in the late 90's. At the time Mike already had various UFC fighters at his gym. I only taught TKD because I didn't want a conflict of interest with his other programs. And TKD was the dominant martial arts($$$$$$$) at the time.
Now that I have my own schools I teach Tae Kwon Do for kids which is my roots and also MMA which I have crossed trained for many years. I feel like TKD is a good martial arts for kids to learn discipline and respect. Which I see there is a lack of these days. And I teach MMA for adults which is more practical and efficent for self defense reasons. And fighters are just the loyal guys who almost live at my school. Got to find them a hobby.
That being said I don't need to be on here anymore. I make money the traditional way. Hard work and I don't need to bring people down to get there. Too bad there are instructors out there like yours. Enlightened1 if you are a Busidomartialarts.net student I respect your loyalty. My students would have done the same. Now you know the truth and if you don't want a lawsuit then you need to apologize to me and my students and everyone on Txmma.com and Bullshido.net. I've got 50 hits on my website from Txmma and 30 so far from Bullshido.net. I think you've done enough damage to yourself for me to build a strong case against you enlightened1.
And last thing yes I do have various UFC fighters that come to my school for seminars or just to train with my guys but I never claimed to train them. I already have my own fighters to be proud of.
By the way Felipe It's me Franc Nguyen I've trained at your school before and Allen was very nice to me and Tony you guys have a great school. I would do the same for you or any of Mohlers Students in Arlington and Gp. And I will have some fighters for the next smoker. Arlington Fight Club is now ArlingtonMMA or Arlingtonmma.com call me Felipe if you have any questions.
To everyone on this form my name is Franc Nguyen and I'm the owner of Arlingtonmma. I don't like to talk about myself always been a private person. You got my credentials now and I hope you see a bigger picture now. I let you be the judge. To sue or not to sue email me your suggestion. Honestly I don't care for his money he needs to feed his family and his kids. But I can't stand disrespect.
thank you Txmma.com, Bullshido.net and everyone,
