Whoa!! I never said he hosted the seminar, The Valencia JKD group did - he's from Barcelona. I just had a quick look around the web myself, I also found pics of him and Inosanto training together. So establishing some direct teaching/training with Inosanto - go google them yourself. I found he has interviewed Ron Balicki,who also claims to have trained special forces., seems to be a common theme with Inosanto instructors. True or not, buggered if I know. I checked out Inosanto's international and US intructors guide and I don't see Balicki - or Vunak or Bob Breen from the UK or many many more. What does that prove? Letting a fraud assist at a seminar being taught by his own instructor is not only rare, in a room full of other instructors - surely some of those other instuctors - if not Inosanto himself, would have been objecting to a fraud and not shaking his hand thus giving him recognition and perhaps, as you rightfully suggest, false credit. Why should Almeria have to show ye anything? Who are ye to question him? As for his advertising - well ye have certainly done more for him here than he ever could. I'm sure he's just using whatever means possible - I see the same for BJJ and MMA here - should I think ill of anyone who happens to be media savvy? I met the guy - so did Dan Inosanto - his teacher - they looked ok to me. Like I said - met the guy once - from what I saw - he knew his stuff seemed pretty humble - no big shot - never mentioned his military background training - but then I didn't ask. Maybe the Inosanto academy can clear it up - maybe you should ask the guy himself instead of the endless speculation behind his back?
