Texas Top Team Martial Arts Academy
Ok. This investigation is being jacked from TXMMA here.
cuz no one has followed up on it there.
We are better at that sort of thing than they are. I hope this'll get PanAM and some other TXMMAers to participate.
It's kind of old but interesting.
Here's the gist:
Guy has registered the name Texas Top Team Martial Arts Academy
was whining and indignant about taking **** from the MMA scene about it
after posting on TXMMA with a initial post consisting of
Funny because I don't remember seeing a million posts asking about that elite Texas Top Team Martial Arts school thats whooping everyone in the local fight nights.
"Many people have been asking when we will be adding a grappling class, we are now in the final stages of doing so, by the end of September we will have a regualar grappling class, with a great instructor teaching it who has competed and fought before if you are intrested or would like more information send us an email or feel free to give us a call and do not forget to check out our myspace page, thanks and remember Keep fighting the Good Fight..."
His spurious claims about his instructors which are the purpose of this thread to investigate:
While he's not being a complete asshole. the rest of the thread is him trying not to mention the names of the instructors and refusing to answer the rest of the questions on the thread. When comparisons to Tiger Klay and Layn Von Erich are brought up.
What is everyone's deal besides Pan Am Silver(thanks Man) everyone is throwing up negetive remarks towards us. I never labeled my school a MMA fight but as it says in the title Texas Top Team MARTIAL ARTS Academy. We offer a varierty of programs and are now adding a grappling/submission program. We just opened up and are trying to build up our school.
* Our boxing instructor has real ring experience with a 4 and 1 Pro-Boxing record and a 20 and 7 Amatuer record, which is more than I can say for others.
* Our submission Instructor has competed in various tournaments including the world games and has a MMA record of 3wins 1 loss and a grappling record of 45 wins and 5 losses.
* Our Karate/Kickboxing Instructor has competed in many tournaments including Submission Wrestling and Karate tournaments.
I am not bragging saying we are better than anyone, we are just trying to come up and do what we love, I am not here critizing anyone I respect all and expect the same. As for the ring we do not have one yet we are looking for one at the moment, but that does not mean we can not teach boxing. As for charging others for the use of a name I had to pay for it to get it registered and why would I sell my name and school anyway, do any of yaw on here run your own school? Anyhow if you want more information let me know. And yes we do have heavy bags, jump ropes, thai pads, focus mitts and several other equipment any thing else?
He indignantly replies:
also his words on the thread don't lie in with the ones on his myspace page for his school. (His myspace is: http://myspace.com/texastopteam)
No he did not lie about how he did he is straight and upfront about his record he has been traing for years under many greats including Guy Mezger any more questions
He claims not to be teaching MMA but to be teaching TMA.
It clearly says MMA in the upperleft.
The instructors he lists as teaching on his school
-Chris Ramirez (no record found FC Fighter)
-Ray Wright (no record found FC Fighter)
-Elias Lopez (1 win, 2 losses, FC Fighter)
-Luis Marquez. (no record found, FC Fighter)
Source: His myspace page for his school.
I see no evidence for the claims he gives for his instructors.
and I believe he's being dishonest about the way he's promoting his school.
His pictures on his page look like all kiddy krotty. (Karate Sucks month material I suppose)
Anywayyy since he was dishonest about his schools representation on txmma I figured it wouldn't hurt to open a investigation thread here.
I can't validate his records. Wondering if our boys who did the awesome background checks on Layn Von Erich, Sex Offender, Martial Arts Teacher, Massage Therapist, who made six figures, etc etc.
can find anything similarly interesting about these guys
My google-fu hasn't revealed too much. as of yet. I'll update if i can find anything interesting. Should I message him to come on here and defend/validate these claims as well?
