    Dear Mr. Rowse:

    My name is Samuel Browning and I am a member of Bullshido.net which is a message board concerning the martial arts community.

    I was reading your blog about Mr. Ferriss and I noticed that you said.

    " he IS a champion kick boxer and world champion cage fighter -"

    I've run a standard computer search on Mr. Ferriss's name through Sherdog.com (which reports on Mixed Martial Arts) and Mr. Ferriss does not appear to have a single professional fight recorded. This is quite unusual given the assertion that he is a "world champion cagefighter". By contrast if you search the name Royce Gracie you will find records for at least 16 fights, dating back into the early 1990s.

    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/fightfinder.asp

    My question is whether Mr. Ferriss told you that he a "champion kick boxer and world champion cage fighter" or you assumed he was, based on something else he said to you, such as that he had beaten other world champions.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter and your anticipated efforts to clarify this matter.

    Sincerely yours,

    Samuel Browning

    Mr. Ferriss's claim that he holds a world record in Tango checks out.

    "Dear Samuel,

    Thanks for your email.

    Please see below the record information requested.

    Most Tango spins in a minute

    Tim Ferriss (USA) and Alicia Monti (Argentina) performed 37 tango spins (giros) in one minute on the set of ABC's 'Live With Regis & Kelly' in New York, New York, USA on 15 September 2006. During the attempt Ferriss maintained the tango embrace (abrazo) and Monti maintained the classical ocho stepping.

    Best wishes,

    Okay, does anyone who follows the fight scene in Japan or China know of this guy?

    Would he have fought in Pride or K1?
    I don't think it's possible to be the "National Chinese KickBoxing Champion" unless your Chinese. Although "Chinese KickBoxing" could just mean San Da, which is what the tournament footage is. From the looks of it I think that the tournament was probably held in Taiwan. I couldn't get a clear look at the characters on the banners, but to me they appeared to be Complex (Traditional) Chinese, which would indicate the location as being Taiwan or possibly Hong Kong.

    You may want to check with the Kuoshu Federation. I think they hold competitions in the U.S. , Vietnam, Brazil and Taiwan rather regularly and the results would not be posted in Sherdog or FC Fighter.

    I've asked several friends who are currently living in Japan about cagefighting. They couldn't think of a professional org that uses a cage, but would keep looking.

    I had a chat to Darren Rowse this afternoon - he was very helpful.

    His information came from Ferriss' website (he mentioned the 'about' section - perhaps he was referring to 'biography': http://www.4hourworkweek.com/ferriss-bio5.htm). He said he had no independent verification of his credentials.

    Rowse' stress of the 'IS' in 'he IS a champion kick boxer and world champion cage fighter' was for comic effect.
