    The above post is incorrect.

    William Ting is not the author behind "framing the tiger" , A photo he had taken was edited and used on the site.

    It does look like there is a cottage industry creeping in of attempts to reinstate Anthony's reputation:
    http://www.forthesakeofthegospel.co.uk/

    The "Framing the Tiger" blog seems to be active with what appear to be people who have met Anthony:
    http://framingthetiger.com/2014/03/2...hony/#comments

    Another one:
    http://www.theway.co.uk/news-9517-ch...-uk-evangelist

    None of these blogs/sites seem to answer why Anthony lied but seeem to work on the theme "that he is a good Christian", "victim of a with hunt" by people who have personally known him.

    I suspect that Anthony is trying to reinstate his career.

    It also does appear that none of the people creating these sites are prepared to lodge an appeal with the Evangelical Union for an appeal for their earlier statement in regard to Anthony.

    Looks like Anthony has re-released "Taming the Tiger"

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Taming-Tiger.../dp/191084800X

    You would have thought with the various investigations and national press coverage he would have let it drop but apparently not. I'm scratching my head to understand what the hell he is thinking of.

    Three time King Fu champion? LOL. Judging from the date of the first review, I don't think he ever stopped selling it; through Amazon at least. But you can buy Cry of The Tiger, Which seems to be bullshit but authored by Angela Little, from eBay's young adult fiction section. The cover still lists it as an "amazing true story", however.

    The unedited report/investigation by the Evangelical Alliance has found its way online.

    Very interesting reading , especially Avanti's responses.

    Thanks for posting that - I've just quickly scanned it - there seems to be huge amounts of evasion by Anthony to some key questions. A very interesting read. I'm always amazed that people keep lying when the facts completely contradict them

    What is almost comical about this is that the people on this site are independent and have investigated his claims. The evangelical alliance also instructed Mr John Langlois OBE former senior partner of the largest law firm in Channel islands ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-langlois-obe-86510126 ) to investigate his claims and pretty much everybody "independent" came to the same conclusion.

    BUT this website defending TA by a Mr Ian Bruce http://www.forthesakeofthegospel.co.uk/ claims to have carried out an investigation in "an independent way" whatever that means despite already establishing an existing relationship with TA that extends to his daughter working voluntarily for TA's Avanti Ministries.

    Hardly a surprise then that they are now working for/running a new organisation together.

    Impartiality how does it work?

    This seems to be what I heard described on this site as a "jerk circle". The whole thing smacks of nepotism.

    I've just had a look at the website, it doesn't appear that the group is currently doing a great deal. Not surprising considering the reputation that Anthony has

    In this case to be fair in my personal opinion Ian Bruce and his crew are just more victims of TA's bullshit as opposed to being part of the con itself.

    Another interesting fact about the Forethesakeofthegospel website is that on the Q&A page on section 3 "Was Tony Anthony a 3 time World Champion?" there is a link to a video titled "Tony watching a class taught by one of his students" .
    Well I visited this school a few years ago and asked them about this video.
    They informed me that they had been contacted by IIRC Angela Little but id have to check to be sure but regardless it was somebody on behalf of TA stating that they were launching a book about Kung Fu and would they be able to film a class to help promote the book" They agreed and along came TA with a pile of books and a cameraman.
    They filmed for a little while and then TA gave out some of his books to the students then left.
    A few days later a few of the students came in to the school upset at the anti kung fu sentiment in the book.
    They had never heard of TA before let alone been taught by him and were FUMING about his misrepresentation of the video and the way he had gone about obtaining it.
    Im sure TA will spin his yarns about this "oh they are just unhappy because I dont do Kung Fu anymore" well if you are one of TA's current minions I urge you to contact the school (I have the details just PM me) they are very welcoming and exactly what you would expect a legit Kung Fu school to be like.
    Meet with them and compare his story to theirs and see what you think.

    I absolutely gaurente you that TA would never agree to meet them to discuss this 1000000000% NEVER.
    Despite having this faith in God to protect him and his 3 x World champion level Kung Fu.
    Ask yourself why that could be given that he already went there to film this video with his books?
    Better yet ask him and watch his eyes and body language squirm as his lies come out.

    Wow - talk about shady practice. Just to check - (I can't spend a lot of time looking at the video whilst at work) - is this a Chinese school or UK based?
