    Joseph Louf - ATD MMA? Beverly, MA

    Hey everyone,

    I'm just checking on a school called ATD MMA in Beverly, MA. I found this by a facebook post on Joe Lauzon's wall. There is a guy on the thread named "Joe Boston" telling Joe that he's cutting weight all wrong and being a very strong keyboard warrior. I found out that he trains at ATD MMA (is in the instructor in fact). Under his credentials it says that he is a "4th degree black belt". The whole thing is fishy...

    http://www.atdmma.com/americantotaldefense.html

    "Sensei Louf has studied martial arts since he was 7yrs old. Moved to Miami/Fort Lauderdale area where he worked at some of the best schools in the business like Black Belt Champions & American Top Team where he studied under great martial artist Ricardo Liborio. He studied Muay-Thai under Guru Master Toddy. Sensei held the ISKA Featheweight Kickboxing Title & currently is thinking about a career in MMA. He has 3 black belts in 1st Degree in Tae Kwon Do, 2nd Dan in Aikido, & 4th Degree Black Belt in Okinawan Shorinji-Ryu Kempo Karate. He is Currently on his way to his 4th black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is a certified personal trainer, dietician, & nutritionist."

    So you've started a thread and you have a list of claims, now you should start doing some research. Look up the orgs, see if he's listed, shoot some emails. MABS threads should have research, not just point everyone in the direction of someone and ask them to do it.

    "I had a friend who went here. Things started out okay, however soon the leader began to be so disrespectful cursing at the students including young children. Eventually it was too much to bare and my friend decided it would be best to respectfully leave and that is when the true abuse began. The leader and his girlfriend began harassing my friend writing her the most insulting things I have ever heard. What kind of way is that to talk to a customer who has paid you for services. Please think twice before joining this place especially if you have young children unless you would like to pay someone to verbally abuse and harass you."

    Sent the following to ISKA Admin in FLA. Hopefully I'll get a response:

    Dear Mr. Respold,
    I hope this e-mail finds you well. I'm reaching out to you today in an attempt to verify a claim made by Mr. Joseph Louf.
    Mr. Louf claims to have held the "ISKA Featherweight Kickboxing Title" at some point in the past, but in doing a web search I am unable to verify this claim. Mr. Louf is not listed anywhere on your site as being a champion or ranked by your organization:
    http://www.iskaworldhq.com/index.php...ult&Itemid=270

    I noticed that the amateur champion section of your page is currently under construction. Perhaps Mr. Louf's accomplishments would be listed here?

    Mr. Louf's claim can be found here (bottom of the page):
    http://www.atdmma.com/americantotaldefense.html

    Any assistance you can provide to verify this claim would be greatly appreciated.


    Regards

    Sorry I'm a newbie. I started digging into his claims about being a 4th degree BJJ black belt and can't find him under anyone's lineage. Not Ricardo Liborio, I mean if he is rocking a black belt someone somewhere must have given it to him.

    A Mr. Joseph V. Louf of Salem, MA was arrested for DUI in 2011. Listed as 34 years old at the time. Most likely the same gentleman (he claims to have graduated from Northeastern U in 2000, which would've made him around 22/23 back then).

    Mr. Louf also claims a past residence in Oakland Park, FL.

    Oakland Park is in Broward County.

    Could also be the same Joseph Louf.

    I don't think he's claiming 4th degree in BJJ. His punctuation isn't very good in his bio... I think he's claiming that if/when he gets his BJJ BB, it will be his 4th BB earned. I still think claim is BS, but it's possible he's a brown under Liborio. Will e-mail someone over at ATT to verify.
