Well yeah but I mean in most business you can't plagiarize without financial repercussions.

That's real disturbing, its like a doctor that just watched house MD.
Im going to e-mail this page to my friend so his wife unenrolls. Is there anyone else I should contact to report this type of fraud?
Perhaps now would be the time to invite Mr. Armen K. himself to the thread.
I also find no record of him with
I looked at the http://www.afaa.com/ site but could not find a way to search for certificate holders.

Not a problem,
I just sent this a few minutes ago.
Mr. Armen Keledjian,
Some questions have arisen about your school and website.
A discussion was started here:
by a prospective student.
Please join in as your personal input would be valuable.
If you are unfamiliar with Bullshido it would be in your best interests to read the stickies.
My research shows that may also spell his last name as follows - Keledzhyan
(as opposed to Keledjian)
The IKBA is a legitimate organization with some very good fighters; if he was indeed a World Champion under the IKBA and can provide some sort of proof, I would imagine he's a very talented nak muay. The usual outlets (Google, YouTube) don't provide much information.
@andrewa, noted, thanks
sent to IKBA
To whom it may concern,
I would like to confirm an IKBA claim.
A prospective student made an inquiry here;
about an instructor that claims to be a "3 time IKBA World Champion."
Is Armen Keledjian (Keledzhyan?) a 3 time IKBA World Champion?
If true, the dates and details of the championships would be appreciated.
If this claim is false, could the IKBA make a public statement to reflect that?
Thank you for your time.
