I saw a BRIEF post on this guy on this forum from 2007. I have found what he lists as credentials. I am into the Filipino Arts very much and "thought" I knew who was who. But until a Kali Instructor sent me this guys Martial Arts WRAP SHEET, I almost fell off my freakin' chair. If this guy is the real deal, I want him at my place for a seminar. If he is NOT, I want to leave this in your lap and have a fantastic headache to try to figure this one out....I KID YOU NOT, This is what he lists as his certifications.

I did see the first one and did use the search function, which didnt help, this was sent to me from a Tuhon of Kali. I have no idea what his name was, only Snake Blocker. So is Mike Obenwhateverthehell, his real name?

Don't know about all the rest...but apparently he trained under Redfeather for like three weeks according to hearsay information from one of Redfeather's former students.

Haha, thsi guy pops up every once in a while.

It was hilarious, they had him on that show, "special ops mission" or whatever. It was clearly evident by the way everyone treated him that he had no fucking clue what he was doing.

He was on deadliest warrior, too. He's a douche.

Yeah, he was on Deadliest Warrior. He was talking **** to Chuck Liddell and Chuck pretty much put him in his place. Like "Ohhhhh you got to hit me when I'm moving for it to hurt me!" and Liddell was pretty much like "Dude shut up" (Not exactly what he said, but it might as well have been)

not much time to be fencing unless it was an all day every day kind of thing.

Dude, trash talk is the name of the game on Deadliest Warrior and that's pretty much the same argument that goes on every single match since it's almost always speed vs. power. I think we'd all take the opportunity to talk crap to Chuck if there was zero chance of actually having to fight him.

That's why I don't watch that fruity ****, other than the mandatory one episode to see if it sucks as much as it seems.

Our own Snake Plissken is a legendary interweb cock-blocker.
Far more dangerous.

Many of these people who claim to have "one year" experience in many different martial arts jumps out to me as someone who trained for a limited amount of time in a given fiscal year....not constantly for 12 months.

I think it's shady when a list of someone's credentials is tl;dr.
