    Union, NJ: Freidun Younossi - The Iceman Lie-eth?

    Was watching Regis and Kelly at work and Regis started talking about this amazing martial artist that he met at the gym.

    Pulled up the guys website and found some pretty crazy things on it.

    http://www.fredtheiceman.com/index.html


    this is from his bio page...reads like some bad action movie.

    My name is Freidun Younossi. I was born in Afghanistan in 1963, into the Barakzai Dynasty, which was ruled by my uncle King Zahir Shah. My family ruled the country and we lived in the Royal Palace. At age three, I was kidnapped by three men in broad daylight and taken to a house, where I was held hostage for two weeks.
    My father's cousin, who was the Chief of Police--along with an army official--assembled a team of soldiers. They went door to door throughout the surrounding area of Kabul until I was finally rescued. The kidnappers were executed immediately and I was brought back to the palace. Within a short period of time, my parents notified me that I was going to learn how to defend myself.
    I was sent to Shaolin Monastery in Songshan, China. It was there that I learned the principles of Zen Buddhism, meditation, and the art of Kung Fu. I was the only Muslim Afghan in the monastery, where I lived for approximately seven years. It was there that I met Jackie Chan and Jet Li during belt-promotion ceremonies. My education was in the Chinese language, which I had difficulty picking up because I am dyslexic.
    Every day I was trained to be a warrior. I learned the ten-finger technique to kill a man. Next I was sent to Thailand to study Mauy Thai and then on to boarding school in Germany. While in boarding school, I robbed a pedestrian passerby. I was picked up in the red-light district a couple of days later and put into an adult penitentiary. During the short period of time I was in prison, the Soviet Union commenced war on Afghanistan.
    I joined the French Foreign Legion at the age of sixteen. I was trained in special forces at seventeen and dispatched to Djibouti, Africa. I carried out twenty-two missions. One night, my unit was ambushed and twenty-five of my fellow soldiers were assassinated. Only two survived: I and another serviceman named Pierre. The attackers kept us alive to torture us for information, but we escaped by killing the guards.
    After I recovered from my wounds and my contract was over, I went back to Germany. I joined the sport of underground fighting in Europe, an activity that led me throughout Europe over the course of five years. By the age of twenty-four, I had engaged in over 400 private fights.
    I then moved to California with my family. In California, there was a huge bodybuilding movement, which included the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger--a seven-time Mr. Olympia and breaking actor. I had the honor of training under him for a year. I also trained with Peter and David Paul, who were known as the Barbarian Brothers.
    I got married and moved to Minneapolis. My marriage, however, broke up after a year. So, I picked up and moved again, this time to Union, NJ, where a friend from California was living. I began underground fighting for extra income. I also started offering physical training services, work that I continue to do for various clients--whose goals range from overcoming the debilitating effects of illness or injury to simply getting into better physical shape.
    I began kickboxing on a professional level in 1982. My current professional record is forty-eight KO's, two draws, and zero losses. I went on to be the twelve-time World Kickboxing Champion and two-time South American Champion. I hold a ninth-degree black belt in Shao-Do-Kahn, as well as an eighth-degree black belt in Sil-Lum-Gung-Fu. I have also mastered Aikido and Jiu-Jitsu.March 29th 2007, I logged my forty-eighth career knockout. Pictures from the event are now on the photos page.

    Fishy? It sounds like downright bullshit to me!

    I don't think you could join the FFL at 16 anyway

      Competition Record

      * 50 Professional Fights
      * 48 Knockouts
      * 2 Draws
      * 0 Losses
      The ego on these guys is usually evident in their 'proclaimed' records. They just can't stomach the thought of a loss....

      PS - Good catch Hannibal, found this on a FAQ FFL site:

      The age range for joining is 18 to 40.

        Agree ...I just loved the 10 finger death technique. Thats twice as deadly as the 5 finger exploding heart that was taught to Bill.

            Well, we have him on one lie, so there is no reason to believe the rest.

              Direct from the French Foreign Legion website:

              You must be a male aged between 17 and 40 years (for minors under 18, parental consent is required on a form available in French Gendarmeries or Embassies outside France)
              SOURCE

              Looks like that might not be a lie after all.

                17 to 40 with minors UNDER 18...in other words, if you are 17 we need a waiver.

                I still say he is talking out of his arse

                  "It was there that I met Jackie Chan and Jet Li during belt-promotion ceremonies"

                  Jackie Chan was a Peking Opera school graduate, not a shaolin guy. In addition I do not believe the Shaolin temple has belts as such and even if they did I very much dout they have "guest speakers" in attendance.

                  The more you read it, the more it comes across as a joke

                    From watching his videos he doesn't look like some super terminator 20x champion he just looks like a big guy with moderate amount of training and decent athleticism. I would be surprised if half his claims are true.

                      He may be a decent fighter but those claims of his are just waaayyyyy out there.

                      suprised he hasn't said that he used his buttocks to smother a grenade that was thrown at him and his friend Pierre when they were ambused.

                        Regis.

                        Which brings to question:
                        Why were you watching Regis<?>

                        Guys like this Iceman chap. The more they talk, the less they've done. It's like some form of pathological overcompensation. Really. If he had only done 1% of what he had claimed, it wouldbe considered a pretty full career...but it's still not enough. Really, like his 2nd cousin the police comissioner and the soilders COULDN'T have taught him to defend himself so they sent the Muslim nephew of a King to a Shaolin temple.....and then joined the FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION as opposed to his home army in a sign of solidarity to his uncle, the King...

                          I saw it too while I was painting the nursery. Regis first said he had met the "World Kicksboxing Champion" at the gym on Monday. Then he said the guy was "The Iceman."

                          I honestly thought he might have met Chuck Liddell at a gym in Manhattan--that could happen, right? I was smirking to myself "That's former champion of the UFC now, Philbin."

                          But no, it was far more entertaining than an "I met Chack" story.

                          Is this our big chance to get Bullshido.net mentioned on Regis and Kelly? Let's send him a t-shirt and a detailed debunking.


                          However, is it impossible that he met Jet Li and Jackie Chan at the Shaolin Temple? You CAN study there, including full-contact kickboxing, right? And Jet Li at least is much beloved there for making the Shaolin cool again with his early films, right?

                          I think his 48-0-2 record and world championship will be easier to debunk.

                            I hope this guy is joking for some reason. If not he will be a prime example of someone who can fight but still be full of shit which is pure Bullshido.

                              I call bullshit on the whole thing - even his kickboxing record is probably padded more than Kate Moss's bra.
