I can't tell you anymore...other than that with Tony lies and truth are so intertwined, he is able to brush most criticism aside. It's a question of asking the right questions...like an investigative journalist...his reply on this site is an example...he has tolld you the truths he wants you to hear, but will sidestep the critical issues...on his web site, he doesn't tell specific details of where he is speaking next...so the hosts can't be alerted to the facts BEFORE he gets there...like I said, he is VERY cunning and crafty...
Hahaha - Stephen
He covered himself well
On the point of the tournaments, in my opinion, he is going to keep downgrading the scale of it. Hopefully until the point where he will probably stop having to say he is a 3 time world champ in just "Kung Fu". but this means it will be hard to have any information on the competition.
Zero creative licesence is great to know.
Al Caponey wise, he states he was in there.
He had to say this due to Caponey being one of the main points in his book.
But he speaks of him being there with a certainty that he has never used for any other facts, therefore its possibly he was there! gotta keep digging here.
Filehelp. The obvious question is, has he ever been held accountable for any of the killings that he readily admits to on some of his youtube videos?
It was 2006 in New Zealand. I can't tell you anymore than this other than that we were with him for six weeks. At the end of the tour, and as a team, we concluded there was a lot about Tony which didn't ring true. Before the tour, we had calls from various martial arts groups wanting information about his 'world champion status' but we couldn't provide. It was only after intense interrogation that he revealed that he was involved with a 'the rare branch' of Kung Fu...and how secret and sensitive the code was...and how he wasn't allowed to give out any details...etc etc ....all we know is the fights for 'the championship' took place in a garage. Tony has been able to weave truth and error and market it nicely.
Ask Tony who the originator of his 'think' presentation was...and all the material he has for his 'Release' conferences....
Will send another email when we have 3 or 4 good questions.
I Will ask about accountability of murder.
Bigguy, I think that you should ask Tony this directly, not that i don't think its crucial information, but because you would be the best one to ask him these questions.
Post your email/Youtube id/Contact info on my wall and I will send you his working email.
So tiger stroking, cauldron of molten-metal carrying, camel riding, SWAT body-guard kung fu world champ Tony, has been nicking his evangelising material as well?! No way. Who would have thunk it? Ha! Ha!
There is a God. And he's put Tony Anthony here to keep us all amused!
I want to post Anothony's segment on when he became Lo Fu Zai, "master in the way of Kung Fu" by completing Tar Shui, the test of teh tunnel in Shangdong. (Shaw Brother's gold)
But before I type up the 3 pages, does anyone have a copy of the audiobook of Taming the Tiger? would be a lot easy to post segmenets from that.
As I would love to see Ronin's and Omega's responce to that chapter.
A very well crafted response! Proves nothing in my opinion other than that he is skilled at is craft.
