I believe Banks was on my e-mail list for the October tourny/ I know the other you speak of (Sonnon..cough...) has been personally invited and asked to participate in many of our events since the first battle of brooklyn. Never brought a team.
Nobody expects the SAMBO inquisition!
Hey Steve, it's Tugboat. With all these SAMBO teachers out there with their killer techniques, I'm surprised they haven't brought their students to all of the tourneys that you hosted. Heh, instead of outing these douches, you should invite them all to the Freestyle SAMBO tourneys.
It appears so...
So even though I was premature in saying the blog post was down, it now certainly appears that he is reading (or has someone reporting back to him) what is posted on BS, doesn't it? So he just keeps pulling down pages and ignoring emails if I'm reading your comments right. That's a good way to prove you aren't bullshido...
Maybe he is reading here, maybe our sambo forum...who knows. I am sure my e-mail let him know people were digging around again.
BTW, no reply yet from him of Mercer (his supposed sambo teacher)

I think I should fly out and check his SAMBO credentials.
It's not cool to make fun of people with learning disabilities, guys. Considering that even fucking gerbils learn from their experiences, this guy's handicap is truly severe.
The 2nd link's website is not down. If you go to the top (http://williambanks2.com) you'll see that the entire site which was previously all about the "family style" spider SAMBO, is now essentially the same as the spartan gym site. This is what I meant when I mentioned the site was "replaced". He overwrote it. Interestingly, it was still more or less intact as a SAMBO site this morning right before I culled this thread out of the original spartan gym thread of his BJJ claims.

Edit: It appears he's also overwritten the http://unit6tampa.com site with the same information, too.
 Yes, I know it's a bit moronic to not download every last page I could find of his SAMBO website before this culling. The site is not in the wayback machine, either. Since this is Steve's baby, I hope he has copies of what he needs.

Reason: added the unit6tampa.com observation.
I don't know if you name was Spiridnov, Oschepkov or Kharlampiev you may be able to make a claim. But Mercer- kinda the wrong national origin for a MA that fairly recently came out of the nation of origin.

Why is Sambo such a whipping post these days? Probably people are just ignorant of the lineages and such. If I opened up a BJJ school in my area and claimed I was a black-belt, I can think of about 15 peeps who would roll in and kick my lying ass within minutes. Deservedly so.
If I can get my $-situation back in order, I will be putting the "will travel to kick your ass" on my header. I've feckin' had it with this BS!!! I'm gOdDAmnED piSSed off at this cRAp! Jesus help me understand WTF is wrong with these idiots or give me more frequent flyer miles! RAGING RANT!!! ANGRY WHITE LOSER!!! GROwlLL!!
Sni93r S4mb0..are you kidding me? How many more stupid-ass leglocking-non-inventions do I have to hear about before the year ends?
You set it up and I will chip in to get you up to Bellingham WA.:icon_twis The question is will the distinguished master of sport world champion take you up on your challenge?

Now we are talking. But make sure the Bellhingham Dick actually fights. So he can't blame the horrific failure on his unsuspecting and most likely hard working and honest students.
