He is NOT a Carlson Gracie black belt:
Also, I wish I could say that I photoshopped the following image, but I can't. His 2nd "dan" BJJ cert:
The instructor who "granted" him the 2nd "dan" in BJJ is here:
His "instructor"s credentials, from the website:
I'll wager my 458 varrots that his guy doesn't have verifiable lineage to back up any of these claims either. Thanks for the lulz.
Shihan Farouk has trained in the martial arts for over 30 years. He has studied various arts such as Karate -do , Judo, Aikido and Silat. Shihan Dr. Kirk "Farouk" Gibbs currently holds the title of Judan (10.
