Hello, there is a gentleman here in canada by the name Len Meyer who says he just arrived from South Africa about a month ago. He makes some pretty fantastic claims about his coaching ability and who he has trained in Muay thai.

I googled his name, and the only thing I can find is a very sketchy and poorly made self promo page. http://www.bebo.com/Profile.jsp?MemberId=2620462910&MID=2917502090

He claims to have trained fighters who have competed in K1, but it seems fishy to me that the only thing I can find on this guy is one website. I'm hoping someone may be able to shed some light on this fellow. Is he a legit internationally recognized Muay Thai trainer or is he some weirdo who's a legend in his own mind?

Thanks for the help in advance.

Nowadays you actually have to go to a club to train.

Ah the good old days.

Are you looking to train with him? Do you feel you might be getting scammed if you do? If you answered yes to any of these questions then continue looking for information to see if this is a place you want to sign up for to train at.

Or is this just another OG witch hunt?

No, I wouldn't train with this guy myself; he looks way too sketchy and no one seems to have heard of him. He has approached a club owner I know making grandiose claims and wanting to teach classes there, so I'm checking in to him since martial arts clubs seem to attract a lot of retards and freaks.

Rather than writing him off as I feel I should, I'm giving him some respect and taking his claims seriously, just in case he isn't full of shit.

No witch hunt here, so take it down a notch.

He seems to have been more involved with boxing in S.A.

Thanks for the tip DowntownMB. I e-mailed them and they haven't ever heard of him either. I guess that settles it then for me.
