    What kind of info? That's a very vague question.

    They use the phrase Muay Thai Cardio Kick Boxing.
    That certainly makes me grimace and leads me to believe they are not beyond using deceptive word choices.

    Regarding Young Lee, the chief instructor, it says he's a pro MMA fighter. He has a page on Sherdog but is listed 0-0-0

    http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Young-Gun-Lee-3889

    However, I found this one vid on Youtube:

    Its in Jungle Fight, a Brazilian MMA/kickboxing promotion. The fight starts off with a flying attack being thwarted with a Mortal Kombat spinning sweep, then ends with Lee Young Gun being caught in a mean-looking armbar.

    His title "2X World Hapkido Champion" should be researchable. Typing "Young Gun Lee hapkido championship" into Google yields 5 results, 4 of which are his website and one of which is his Sherdog 0-0 page. This was pretty much the same when I tried looking up his WKO title as well.

    I also tried looking up the orgs he founded, the YGL International Hapkido Association and the Hapkido & Jiu-Jitsu Alliance. Both direct to his website again and then lead off to unrelated pages. The same thing happened when I looked up "Youg Gun Lee Machado BJJ". If these two orgs he runs exist, they don't seem to have any online presence besides a mention on his website.

    This is all from cursory Google searches, but it seems suspicious that a world champion's claims would all lead back to his own website and nothing else.
