This guy should make one of those TRS videos....
Obviously that has already been stated. It is being looked into.

I honestly didn't see a lot wrong with that reply, and although we can scoff and say "he and Frank Dux must be training partners" fact is we'd only be speculating that, and that's not uncovering a Bullshido artist is about, it's about PROVING that they are.
Going to his class is going to prove his 150 record how?
Going to his class is going to prove his championship how?
Yes, to gauge his skill we need to go to one of his classes. It still will not PROVE any of his other claims.
It is Fake: My meaning being is that if you can't prove that he hasn't had 150 victories, you can't disprove it either.
I know exactly what you mean.
Sorry, doesn't work that way. If you put the claim out there you should have the tiniest proof it exists. How easy is it to say I foguht MMA fights? Omega will provide his record but, it tends to be I fought MMA.
Yes, we know there were Vale Tudo and NHB matches before the MMA craze. We also know that all records of so called "underground" fights weren't kept.
The problem with the reply is summed up perfectly by
The burden of proof is on the claimant not us. Once we do everything we can it becomes the claimants responsibility to prove us wrong.

No, he went the Fran Dux route that destroys his records credibility.
There are other logical fallacies in that response and preemptive excuses throughout the reply.
No need to entertain them because everyone can see them for what they are.
I'm inclined to agree with you Fake, well said.
I just finished reading Mr. Ward's reply. That was... well, it was a whole lot of nothing, really. According to him, his record is only known to "the people who matter"; am I to assume then that in Chuck's eyes, none of us are worthy of knowing the details of his record, and that we're simply supposed to take the man's word for it, and that by doubting his word, it's a strike against the quality of our characters?
Way to go Mr. Ward, you've managed to spout nothing but a bunch of holier-than-thou baloney full of logical fallacies that just makes you look like a complete dunce and does nothing to help your "argument," whatever it is. Way to dig a hole.
I'd say this fellow and his claims warrant some serious, serious, SERIOUS investigation, moreso than what's been done so far. Is this the same sort of argument he used with the ASU board that hired him when they asked "What are your credentials, Mr. Ward?" I feel very, VERY uncomfortable knowing that this man is on a public university payroll when he is completely unable to validate his own background in a very simple manner.
I smell Bullshido.com front page material.
where is his reply? lol

Better yet, do we have any members who are attending ASU? I invited Mr. Ward to train at ATT-Orlando if he is ever in the area, but other than that I certainly can't get out to AZ.
