    I don't think I.A.S.D.S. exhists. At least not as a legitimate enterprise in the martial art world. L'Onis is apparently a 1st dan bb at most in tae kwon do/karate of some form. And literally has no other black belts what so ever, which means that his student Audio is actually his highrank. I love it.

    It doesn't appear that his Ta Gi Gaku Karate-Do system exists either.....or the American Alliance of Martial Artists.

    So it appears he made up fights, sytems, and associations? At least he sets the bar (for lying) high.

    You are never colorful, surely you jest. By the way I hear that there is a UFC62 with several "NHB Fighter of the Year" award recipients going on at my place tomorrow night. With beer and brisket.

    Perhaps, I will find myself so fortified by Shiner, texas cow, and televised violence that in a moment of weakness I might front the several hundred bucks to make MYSELF "NHB Contributor of the Year" via the US National Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Granted, I will have to pay like $300 for the "award banquet dinner fee", but yes, I assure you I will have earned the reward.

    Might be an expensive way to prove a point, but Hmm. 1bad65 perhaps you can stop by and give me some ideas for my honorary title.

    Okay, I have posted the photos I took of Mr. Lonis' school in Lubbock. Here's the link:

    http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/mattrm...nShZFBSuR0BMvU

    Let me know if there are any problems with the link.
    Also, they are not the greatest of pics, but they do show the eviction notice.

    You know Arclight I would. But there are 2 reasons I can't.
    1. When 2 badass fighters of our calibre get together, bad things can happen.
    2. I promised a guy from my gym we'll do it there.

    Call me and I'll tell ya details/directions.

    Also, I think the pic below is appropriate for Dux-Klay and his current situation:

    In the pic showing the font of the school..just to the left of the door. That is the Ta Gi Gaku logo.

    Also..notice his name says "Clay" not "Klay"

    Wow, were my pics good enough to keep everyone quite, or is everybody taking a long potty break?

    After that...I ran into him again when he opened his first school under the Ta Gi Gaku thing and he then started claiming the 4th dan thing.
    How much time passed between when you met him as a 1st dan and when you met him as a 4th dan? and how much time should it take for a 1st dan to reach 4th dan in Tae kwon do? I would guess anywhere from 4 years at least, giving a year + for each rank(pay to play) to 8 years at most. but probably even more if it was from Okinawa, which should have a more elaborate time-table for it's ranking system than the bb factories around here. if this is the case there would need to be a minimum of 4 to 6 years in between meeting him for the tiger to actually hold the rank of fourth dan in anything.
