    So the person in question appears to be a Don or Donnie Baker, who has a partner named Daniel Sombrano.
    Here is another nice example of their online presence:
    Attacked by Twenty:True Multiple Opponent Realities

    After fighting and dealing with three, I had to deal with twenty more who swarmed and encircled me. Didn’t see that coming.

    Punches, elbows, forearms, hammer fists and chops worked. Knocked out a few but knocked down a lot more of them.

    Kicks and knees wouldn’t work. There was just too many of them and they swarmed too fast.

    I wasn’t tired until I stopped fighting. Must have been the adrenaline working.

    Didn’t see very much, because it was too dark to see. I could only see the asphalt as my face was heading towards it from being hit in the back of the head and shoulders by a bat or two by four. And shoes kicking and stomping me, everywhere at once.

    Every time I moved my arms I hit someone, whether moving my arms forward or back. My fists and elbows were both swollen from hitting people, talk about close quarter fighting.

    You had to fight offensively and move quickly. Even your defense had to be offensive in nature.

    Trying to grapple or ground fight would have killed me. Too many attackers.

    Striking and moving was the best way to fight. Didn’t extend the arms too far, too many fists coming at you to block or parry. The further you extended your arms out the more you got hit; you opened yourself up too much.

    Being explosive first, having endurance second and finally having isometric strength last seems to be the best way to train for this.

    Nobody came to help only to fight me. My two friends were pinned to the wall by others.
    ...
    !!!

    Click here for the exciting conclusion!


    edit:
    This is the description from the instructors page of the school they teach at:
    The Academy's Instructors are highly trained and skilled. The Instructors have to undergo a strict regimen of training and a lengthy evaluation process. Almost all of the Instructors are certified Professional Protection Specialists or has serious military or other high risk operation background. In order to retain their position, each Instructor must maintain a rigorous training curriculum and attend weekly advanced level Instructor Training Program Classes under the personal supervision of the Program Directors.

    That's it, well except for a snazzy pic.

    Appears to be the same stuff as in this old thread, where you can find more people’s opinions.

    I remember the time I fought ten guys at once, I also brutally beat them all and escaped unscathed apart from my fists, bloodied only with my opponents innards.

    Oh wait no I just got the **** kicked out of me.

    I guess I need to learn some Lerdrit.

    Yes, now we can discuss his credentials without the Boran nutriders around. The Lerdrit thing is still out there.

    Please dont, I really dont want this to become a "Muay Boran is teh realzz" debate. I didnt want to do an investigation in MABS or anything, but i'd quite like to get to the bottom of his claims of fighting 20 men and teaching real Lerdrit.

    Seems like a pretty easy bottom to get to. Lerdrit isn't something tought to foreigners, or even unqualified natives. If there's an exception to that, I've never heard of it. And 20 men? Really?
