The site advertising this e-book does not say who the author is.
You know how pro fighters have full time trainers, coaches and managers? Well, let me share a secret with you. I am one. I train, coach and manage top amateur and pro MMA fighters. And I'm going to let you take a sneak peek into our inner circle. Get ready...read every word of this letter! I have prepared a special report called:
"WIN YOUR MMA FIGHT: 3 Keys To Successful Training, Diet And Preparation For Victory In An MMA Fight."
The site made no mention of who was giving this narration. So I did a whois and found this:
Kundagawa, Yoshi email@example.com
The Do! Team Inc.
1135 Terminal Way
Reno, Nevada 89502
4163525568 Fax -- 4163525568
So I e-mailed the support address firstname.lastname@example.org
who is the author? (is it Yoshi Kundagawa?)
what fighters has he trained?

Thanks for your reply,
you didn't answer my question though. Which fighters has he trained?

So my question is, who is Yoshi Kundagawa, which fighters has he trained, and what is he trying to hide?

He looks like a guy that has a high degree of proficiency with the keyboard.

Going to a local place, a dojo if you will, costs a lot of time and money. Time and money I do not have. What better way to kick some tail than by staying at home and having all the time I need? This is the best way I have ever seen to learn how to master the art of martial combat.
Wow. So, he doesn't have time to train but, he can watch DVDs.
It also links to this website

Okay a little more.
Here is a website dedicated to his articles that is updated regularly.
He does a lot of "DVD's are great" articles. So, I seriously wonder how he can train a MMA fighter.
Here are some interesting tidbits from his blogs/articles
I'm a brown belt in karate, and I take my black belt grading later this year.
For my students, I want them to know a little bit more about it, and the way that it works.
Unfortunately, his school was too far away for me to attend regularly at least, not without breaking commitments to my own school, where Im an assistant instructor.
Ive been practicing snake style Kung Fu for going on 8 years.
Ba Gua Zhang showed me a better way
Let me share what I have learned about cardio kickboxing with you.
Shaolin kung fu.............After basic combinations are mastered, the student can learn some more advanced Shaolin fundamentals. Grappling and joint locks are great skill sets to learn because they are very practical and often have a huge impact on the outcome of a fight
He has training in other arts but, I can't find any that support MMA.
Unfortunately someone will have to waste their money and buy the book. If it is just about how to train (calisthenics, weights, etc) proper diet, and psychological aspects of the game, it may not be complete bullshido.

Yeah, but how can a person write about what's good physical and psychological training, dieting and stuff for MMA fighter (and make money from it) if he's never trained/compete for MMA nor trained competitive MMA fighters????
Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.
My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

It's not really his fault. Our society teaches people that nobody wants to read real books; the big money is in ridiculous wishful thinking. How much money has "The Secret" made?
Still, what a jackass.

Yoshi Kundagawa is a freelance journalist covering the martial arts world. Too much time at his computer eating donuts reduced him to couch potato status. He's on a quest to recapture his youth and fitness.
Then this gem:
I treat martial arts somewhat as a sport and as a workout routine, but I'd be lying to you if I didn't think it also had some practical utility as a self defense technique, and a lot of the classes I teach focus on self defense, particularly in teaching classes to women and teenagers, in particular mugger defense and knife defense.
Recently, I've had to give some thought into teaching knife defense. Knife defense and martial arts techniques sort of mix, and sort of don't. When we spar in class, we focus – and we focus a lot – on not hurting one another. Knife defense has to take a different approach.

I tried to contact him through various phone numbers, I left voice mail messages on them
The plot thickens.... I did a search for the business address "1135 Terminal Way, Suite 209" and found this gem of a domain:

Calling the number I get a voice mail with some woman named "lolita". Left a message.
so I want to ID the fighter pictured below with his hand up.... apparently from Ultimate Cage Wars. Unfortunately most of the figters don't have pictures.

So I spoke with Chris De La Rosa on the phone and re-itereated my questions about which fighters yoshi had trained.
He said thaet he was keeping it confidential because he hasn't publicly traind anyone.
He said that they are up and comers that I haven't heard about them.
At one point he said "It's just a $7 book, why is it so important?"
I explained about the investigation and who Bullshido was.
I asked him about the 1135 Terminal Way Suite 209 address and he said he didn't work there, he works in ontario, not reno.
He said he was very impressed with my ability to find this information and he was curious to know how I did it, I him to check out this thread.
He told me that he will be giving my phone # to Yoshi Kungadawa.
