Somehow I just keep having memories of this guy pop into my head.
Hey Dux-Klay, are you fighting in the Austin XFC show on Sat? I'm sure a guy with your accolades could Main Event a show that size. Actually they pay guys like Liddell and Coleman to appear there. I bet they would love to have a "NHB Fighter of the Year" show up.

I am not but his students need to know if he can only test them to green in KM, and that looks like the case,

Oh by the way want to expalin this report? Like you said you gave us enough to research. I've been holding onto quite a few interesting things.
This goes to misrepresentation.
Still checking things though.
Here is another interesting link

Good stuff is it fake.....very interesting.
I must say I'm extremely impressed by the ability of forum members here to search out the truth. Several of you started out playing more of a devils advocate role only to find out that the trail they were following did indeed start to take some unusual turns.
I was thinking more about this last night. Put yourself in Mr. Lonis shoes for a minute. If I found out that someone posted my resume from my website and wanted to know some answers what would I do? Logically speaking I would have choosen to NEVER even post on this forum. Espeically when I know deep down that there are some major inaccuracies and misleading points on the resume in question. I would just ignore the inquries and move on....afterall I have a business to run and a livelyhood to keep. It's all just "net" chatter anyway right?
So that poses a deeper question. Why on earth would he choose to post and open the door for more investigations performed by various forum memebers? Especially when you know that they will eventually find out a few things? This part really puzzles me. I don't have a point to make I'm just kind of "thinking out loud" here. I'm really curious as to why he would participate and why he continues to participate on this thread?
It seems pretty simple to me. Either you WANT to clear the air and come clean or you DON'T. Why all the strange politician double talk?
What "would" have happened if he came here and posted something like this: Ok, fellas I'll be honest here. Some of the things on my resume are a bit padded and even over stated. Afterall I am in business to sign up students and this is my career. As a matter of fact upon looking at my resume again I think I should make a few "updates" and even some editing may be called for. I truly apologize for any toes that I might have stepped or feathers that might have been ruffled. Thanks for keeping up on things and in the future I will do my best to keep things straight.
What would be the response to that? For one I would think that this thread wouldn't be 53 pages long....that would be a start.
Again, just thinking out loud........and Mr. Lonis if you are still reading these posts I would like to let you know once again that I am NOT Klay Pittman. I really think you should leave any comments about him or your relationship with him OUT of these posts. Serioulsy......he really doesn't have ANYTHING to do with what has transpired here. I do know Mr. Pittman and if anyone else does you would know that Klay (Pittman) isn't the most "net forum" savy. He still has trouble trying to figure out his email from time to time ( I mean that as a light hearted joke just in case someone thinks I'm jabbing at him).
I am also curious if Jim Thomas is actually a Dr. or uses that title from one of those diploma mills or martial arts title sellers where you can become a Soke for like $50.
Anyway, there must be some type of effect. Many instructors don't post. They also tell their students not to post. I was part of an Org. that did this.
It is actually really smart. Everything is conjecture and you can refute everything in person. Yes, I did this to.
Problem is you( as an instructor affiliate) start reading and two things happen:
1) You leave.
2) You stay.
Yes there are many inbetweens but it really boils down to these 2. People with a huge influence probably started leaving. He had to stop the money loss and he thought throwing out a few names a numbers would work.
He also hoped phone calls would be enough. He didn't count on people being so thorough.
I know I'd be fighting if you guys put an income like this in jeopardy:
