    Stunt-Thug, 'bout time you showed up here. Thought maybe you'd fallen off a building for the last time or something. Anyway, I'd look into his questionable Echanis claim, and to the very disturbing questions that has been raised not only about Echanis' martial arts background, but whether he ever actually served in Vietnam as a sniper at all. Something really smells here, and as I said earlier, Bob Duggan is well known for his outspoken brutal honesty. If Billy lied about Echanis, then he can be assumed to have lied about most everything else.

    Billy boy smells like a questionable character who may have fabricated a whole web of bullshit. I think your nose is probably right on here. But like Fake said, you're gonna have to do the research and verify it before you can post the big F word here. Actually, you got off pretty lightly compared to what I went through first time I posted here.

    Had your eyes closed.

    Unverifiable linage was/is the biggest thing to hurt MA. Kung fu is the worse. RBSD is the second IMO.

    Google anything with words like 60 second knockouts or Special forces Martial Arts. You will be surprised.

Because of the nature of my job, phonies are dangerous to life and limb. I try my best to look out for my stunt people at all times. Much like the military, it is a tight circle. I met this guy and immediately got the sense that he was bullshit. I have an inquiry being pursued at USSOCOM, as well as at SAG and through Veriseal, to check on his military allegations. I brought this to you fine folks in order to be thorough. If he is bullshitting his military background, what about his martial arts pedigree?
    Welcome Stunt, good to have you on board. You'll notice that it does not take long to get the ball rolling downhill pretty fast here when an apparent MA Bullshitter is propped up for questioning.

    Let us know what you hear from your military inquiries.

    Mongo is a long time poster here and currently trains in Japan (judo and BJJ) and has always seemed to be fairly dialed in to the etiquette and history behind training and Japanese MA's. His criticism of the 8 year old shodan claim is well taken.

    I appreciate every ones attention to this matter and indulgence of my newbie mistakes. Rest assured, I will list all proof as it comes in. So far, his claims to be a member of 19th group Special Forces are absolutely false.

    Did anyone read the bio's on the other instructors? Jacov Bresler who was a member of the Navy Seals in Isreal and trained two years with Frank Dux. The other instructors mostly talk about how they loved Bruce Lee and very little about training experience.

    Just from this information on the head instructors the whole place seems a little shakey.

    As to my movie stuff, there are no oscar winners in my resume, but if you like schlock horror, you have probably seen some of my work.
