Sorry - too late to edit.
Forgot to mention - this "kongo" is also the same as for "Kongo Zen" - which is what the shorinji kempo guys are into.
Its the religious entity - 金剛禅総本山少林寺 (kongo zen sohon zan shorinji).
I've been looking into the People on the testimonials page too and I've come full circle with it. Other than the individual's own companies everything I've tried links back to social media or the ICA page.
Going to try meta searches on his international claims hoping that someone, somewhere, still has a site or archive he hasn't managed to lock down yet. Will screencap any relevant findings.
Found a list of all the arts he is claiming experience in at:-
As you'll see the list is huge and I couldn't capture the entire page but here is what I managed
If anyone can get a better shot, that would be much appreciated.
I've captured the bottom of the page which you missed out. Interesting reference to being a commando again. He also claims to have worked with various special forces.

Reason: Adding about SF experience
Pretty sure we have that InterMartialarts bio already, linked to on page 1 and screencapped on page 2.
My bad. It was linked on page one but not the list of claimed MA experience so at least thats one good thing. He really has been rather diligent about shutting down his old pages.
Cheers for the other half of the screen Scipio.
Yeah, it's a real shame he's shut so much down. Had I suspected a year ago that this guy was actually going to be able to make money selling his services to security professionals, I would have done this back then and screencapped his web sites. The guys who come on forums claiming to have invented their own martial arts systems are usually losers who live in their parents' basements, and aren't worth the trouble of investigating.

Others may have come across it but I did find an appearance of his on the BBC (no video unfortunately). This done when the ICA was still International Security Star Alliance. I haven't linked or screencapped because the article makes no further claims nor provides any other useful info but if you want it a search of the BBC news site will throw it up.
If not for the military claims, I probably would have passed this thread by.
