If he is a legit black belt I would like to drop this.
Here's his official website: http://mma.metrohosting.info/
Sensei Perry started his martial arts career in 1990 training in Jui-Jitsu, Karate, Kick Boxing and Tae Kwon Do fighting. That was before the Ultimate Fighting Champions made Jiu-Jitsu the most sought after martial art in America starting in 1993. When Al started training in Jiu-Jitsu it was an obscure art with few practitioners. In 2000 Al created MMA Fighters and hasnít looked back since.
Don't let him do that. It's an amateur mistake and can lead to you acting like an immature ass.

Inform him that simply offering up his lineage will clear the whole thing up.
Most likely, you'll have to disclose your own lineage to maintain the appearance of fairness and professionalism if you haven't done so already (I don't have time to read the links right now).
I find it troubling the way they circled the wagons like they did. Something's definately not right there. Anyone who has legit lineage has no problem sharing the info. Hell, anyone who has legit lineage is proud to share it. Kick his ass if you can.
I agree thing is it is myspace. We all know the crap that goes on in those forums.
I'm not trying to give the guy legitimacy but, his STUDENT fired this **** up. He didn't say anything until MT went to his website forum. Now, the circling of the wagons does bother me.
Now we all know how this works. Dumb student makes a challenge/Claim teacher has to act hard while covering his ass.
I would have found an email address and asked him off the net. I would have told him I'm posting the info I found but, I'd have been a little less confrontational.
Many TMAers are dicks when it comes to linage. As shitty as it may feel, you have to stroke that ego to get information.
This is coming from experience of emailing and trying to get information.
So you gotta roll with one of his students first before you get to have a go at the main guy?. Any terms of the challenge laid out?
Yeah I actually had all the CMA legends pop up when I read that.

You get your ass whooped.
That is one of the things that worries me, regardless of his legitimacy or lack there of.

if he was legit wouldn't he respond more maturley to someone asking his credentials? i cant imagine anyone who's ever instructed me behaving like that
