There is the mention of the fact that he is Afghani, and this is not to be racist or anything but here is something, that isn't
If anyone has read the book "Kite Runner", (which is a very good story and written by an Afghani), there is a part where the main character talks about how it is a cultural thing for them to inflate stories. I don;t have the book on hand, but in it there is the example where if someone says that their son is a doctor the kid probably passed a Biology test in school.
On my deployment to Afghanistan, I noticed something like this but not to the extent of this guy. For example, we needed to rent vehicles on the base. The contractor (Afghani Local) says he's got great vehicles. Practically brand new. You can see where this is going without thread jacking.
Culturally, there is a lot of the "save face" issue (different form Asian version) that occurs, but the extent here seems very over the top.
The Legion thing doesn't seem far fetched if you look at our history and hear about people lying about their age to enlist while young. However, the point about how it would have made more sense if he supported his uncle the king rather than enlist. Also, checking on Family lines is going to be hard since I remember when we went looking for people, you had to ask around, and you were looking for info on "Fazal, son of Mohammad, with a brother named Habib," and the brother part was the only thing that distinguished 3 families.
Just some info so you know what you will be getting into, although the chance for the to be done on Regis may be worth all the trouble.
Nice work Necroth. I saw the judging of the matches but hadn't gotten NEARLY as far as you.
With regards to the French Foreign Legion:
"Legionnaires can choose to enlist under a pseudonym ("declared identity") and a declared citizenship. This disposition exists in order to allow people who want to start their lives over to enlist. French citizens can enlist under a declared, fictitious, foreign citizenship (generally, a fracophoneone, often that of Monaco). After one year's service, Legionnaires can regularize their situation under their true identity"
per wikipedia....which is still wikipedia.
So technically, he could claim to protect his royal standing he went in under and retained an assumed identity.
Like Van Damme
And this entry can be used should anyone claim that Zahir Shah's exile is the reason little information remains about the Younossi family's heritage and any claim that they are exiled from the country. "In April 2002, while the country was under American occupation, he [Zahir Shah] returned to Afghanistan to open the Loya jirga, which met in June 2002. After the fall of the Taliban, there were open calls for a return to the monarchy...Hamid Karzai, a prominent figure from Zahir Shah's clan, became the president of Afghanistan and Zahir Shah's relatives and supporters were handed key posts in the transitional government." (All emphasis courtesy of me, not the site.)
I believe Karzai's brother hasn't returhed to Afganistan and runs a resturant on Charles Street in Baltimore - not sure how he'd react to random requests about his family though.
And on another note, the blockeracademy.com appears to be run by a 'Hummingbird on Crack' - and you'd have to be to fit all this in
What was Pierre's full name?

Which kickboxing organizations did he compete in? Has he fought anyone notable? Who?
Who awarded him his Jujutsu and Aikido black belts?
How possible is it for an ex-amputee to return to the ring and win?

Well kids, a little google-fu and I've found TWO of the belts, but that third one has got me stumped.
So at least two of those belts are quite affordable.
OMG. That is the WWE belt. Good lord. I am so ashamed not to have caught that. Good job.
On the other one, though, it is clear that it's a custom made job with a different center logo, so the "event" he supposedly won it at might have actually had it made by this or another company deadling with the same manufacturer. But the WWE belt...there's no reason for that one. Total BS.
Nice work on teh Google Fu.

However, the fact that he appears to be partially legit makes it tricky to determine what he's exaggerated and what he's being honest about.

Reason: because necroth basically did this part already
the Shaolin Temple does not have a belt ranking system. this guy is an idiot and a liar. and if he faught pro how come you can't find any fights ot articles anything. i can find kickboxing fights from 1980 none of his. complete bs. and if he was taught zen buddism then why is he mugging people hahahaha what a freak.
Is he real?
I wonder Solus knows him in person? He seems to have no proof of whatever he claimed, yet he has convinced some of people around him in the city. (Although I saw some of his certification which issued in early 2000, on his facebook)Do you know anybody mugged by him? I heard that he lived in NJ before. I wonder, if he's a come back from a foot injury, where is all the records before the come back?
