    His claim of having earned a "bachelor's degree in education from the University of San Diego in 1984" is suspect. I emailed the office of the registrar at the University of San Diego and received the following reply:

    I don't have a record of an Emile Wright at USD; he may have attended our School of Continuing Education, but they don't grant degrees. If you contact him and he feels this information is in error (he may have attended under another name), please have him get in touch with me.

    The registrar's email address is registrar@sandiego.edu.

    I never even questioned his academic credentials, but his pattern in consistent. They always want to be a master, a professor, a Soke, or some other such. The Olympic thing bugs me, but the Navy SEALs claim burns my ass. With the Stolen Valor Act having been challenged in court, justice may never prevail.

    I am still waiting for Veri-SEAL to provide information on his alleged service with them. I spoke with a couple of his students, and he seems to have a cult-like following.

    Ran across this turd of a video on a Youtube search...


    Also, I found that he has an MMA fighter for "No Decision Apparel" named Corey Waide who shows Mr. Wright as his fight trainer. He shows a 3-4 record on their website, however I can not find anything else about him anywhere.

    Parlor tricks LOL. We used to do those demonstrations to try to draw students in. Sometimes we pulled kids (and even adults) in, because they wanted to break bricks. I have come so far in my understanding of martial arts since those days.

    Mr. Wright also claims to have trained many black belts, who have become champions:

    Martial Arts Academy is run by Master Emile Wright the light heavy weight champion for twelve years. He has several black belts including Jimmy Frick and Gean Fletcher whom are both thrid dans, Robbie Connafield and Brant Schoenbeck whom are second dans, and Chris Criswell, Sabrina Criswell, Brandon Bates, and Peter Soddy whom are all first dan black belts. His most famous student is Steve "Nasty" Anderson who held the world heavy weight championship for twenty-two years.


    In his classes, Coach Wright teaches kata, sparring, kick boxing, jiu jitsu, grappling, self defense, twelve different weapons, and rape prevention.

    Classes are $10 a week or $40 a month Monday through Friday from 4 p.m to 5:30 p.m.

    Ages range from 4 - 65.


    *Coach Wright offers a home study program. Dvd's are available!

    One of the people he lists is Steve "Nasty" Anderson, who I found out was pretty dang good and pretty popular in the 1990's. If there's a karate guy out there who knows how, this may be an easy way to confirm or deny some of his claims. P.S. This was taken from the Info section of his facebook.

    You have to remember, if he trained for a few months or a year it validates the claim. We have had this issue come up before.

    What i find interesting is that there is an Ernie Wright of the Chargers, but no Emilie that I can find.
