So rather than actually trying to provide proof, you resurect the thread with nothing other than a bunch of stories about you and your instructor.

All I can offer is that I saw the two of together at the seminar and I find that strange. Nobody has answered that, why would the head of his own school/organisation do that?
And someone else said he isn't. Thus no real information. Yes, I read the whole thing.
Surely Inosanto knows who he taught and who he didn't and likewise certified - and as for the post by Cake - if you bother to read the full post - somebody called UltimateJKD states he is certified .
Again you are trying to assume what other people are thining. Please stop doing that. It accompishes nothing.
I mean, Almeria's acting strange, my instructor couldn't afford his fees - so he cut them. Came to Dublin for a Seminar where he could be said to have just about broke even(2011, before I was a member) . What's he in it for? Prestige? And why haven't the Inosanto organisation just said don't train with the guy? In which case what's he doing at Inosanto seminars?
My instructor is humble, he breaks down content well for me, and he gives me material that I ask for. What does that mean? Only that he is competent in my opinion. Still not relevant.
I can only go by what I have seen, Diesel. He came across like a humble guy. Broke down the seminar contents for us and went into some detail on them - gave my instructor other material he asked for.
We leave threads open so that people can post if they get information that is relevant. Not so that people can revive them, just to complain about the fact that no one has posted anything relevant while also not posting anything relevant.
You're right about one thing - if this is how ye conduct yourselves then I think ye should just close the thread.
Life sucks sometimes.
Because I have never seen an open investigation that furnishes no proof yet leaves it's accusation hanging in the air for two years, seems a little unfair.
No one cares who you train with. No one is questioning your certs. No one is questioning your opinions. Facts is what people want to know. If you want your own thread to post all of your own informaiton and opinions in, go start one.
Give me an email and I'll post a pic of me and Almeria and my instructor. sure on Inosanto's page he has a pic, not great I might add of the Valencia seminar dated Nov 24th. And we're all in that pic(at least those that were there the two days)
