View Full Version : Company claims to have a SEAL martial arts instructor

25 September 2010, 11:55
I wanted to start martial arts training again (before I get too old).

Bay Area Fire Arms claims have a navy seal as martial arts instructor.

The man's name is Niko Load.

The webiste is: http://www.bayareafirearms.com/martial_arts.asp

I did not think it appropriate to call and question the veracity of the claim.

However, I do think this qualifies for this forum as the company is advertising a SEAL for purposes of increasing membership.

If he is legit, great! If not, not cool.

I would really appreciate a confirmation of their claim concerning Mr. Load.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Failure to post an intro.

Navy and SEAL are always written in the manner.

My bad! - I thought it was included as a registered user.

I am a family man, 46 years old, and work for a small government agency.

I am thinking about taking martial arts again and noticed the advertisement from a local gun club.

I have heard that many men falsely claim to be SEALs, so I sent the post above for verification.

I have read the stickies on how to assess whether someone is telling truth. However, as this is a company making public claims, I thought it wiser to request assistance from the administrators of this site.

Any assistance is very much appreciated.

Remember the song "Ballad of the Green Beret"?
The line that goes "men who mean just what they say"?

You just stepped into a lot of that, regardless of color of cover!

Thank you for the clarification and patience.

(I was somewhat confused between profile vs intro).

I have posted in intro per your request.

No one with the last name of "Load" was ever a Navy SEAL. Funny name though. He must be a load.

The website is amatuerish at best. WTF is an "Uzzi"?:rolleyes:

Looks like a bad joke. Go spend your money elsewhere.

Check out that website. It's like "Bubba's shootin school". Just call BR549 or swing by the trailer park for more information. Hilarious.

Instructor Bio:

Dean Abu

Dean has been shooting since he was eight years old. Like Scott, he is a big fan of the Glock line of semi-automatic pistols.

Dean is known for his great focus .

I'm sure Mr. Glock is thankful for Dean Abu's highly qualified endorsement. :rolleyes:

This has got to be an elaborate practical joke.

Sweet baby Jesus......please make it stop. Sorry, I just cant help myself. This is awesome.

Do you know that by doing nothing, you can be sued for not protection your flock. We have a wonderful presentation for all church leadership to see.

To date there have been over 50 pastors shot down in their own churches in cold blood. Not to mention other innocent people who have been shot. 4/08/09 Another Christian church mass murder in California this time. Gee this could never happen in my church, wake up!! We are are not people that sugar coat anything, We will tell you the truth. We are a direct action group. What is the proto cal if you have a person arrive in your church, and begin shooting everyone? I'm not a gun person, it does not matter, by law you have to have a plan in place. We are not called to be a victim. We will teach your church staff what to do, when no one else does. The large church in Colorado has a plan in place from four years before that they put into action, and the gunman was neutralized on the spot. We must break out of denial and protect our congregations .Denial has no survival skill whatsoever,and is very destructive, and you cannot ignore the possibility of this occurring. The second thing is what if there is an earthquake, terrorist strike, nuclear blast? What do we do? These are the subjects we will cover in our training. Call today to set a date for training. This is not an NRA Course.

Jesus wept. The NRA breathed a sigh of relief. :biggrin:

Oh my God I cant stop......

[quote=]Disaster Management Consulting / Training

This course is designed for corporate America . How do you evacuate 100's or 1,000's of people, in the even of a major disaster, earthquake, fire, terrorist attack, active shooter. The mind set to survive, keep a cool head, follow your proto cal.

An evaluation of the buildings will be done, dangerous things outside like bombs, and easy kill zone. Call for more info.

What are you saying? You dont think he's a SEAL? :eek::biggrin:

I'm sure wearing a SEAL T-shirt is "proto cal".

Cue the 'Jaws' theme...

Fortunately, I already have kettle corn on standby. :biggrin:

Good Lord. Someone please, please, please go to this guy's school and film it.

"Kimmie", sweetheart -- you see that pretty large area you've left uncovered/untouched by your hands? Yeah, you wanna go ahead and fill that in, put some skin on it. In short, imagine that instead of a pistol, you had something else, err, in your hands. OK, so mucho skin contact is important in that other case, just like this one. The objectives might be reversed -- in the one instance you want to control the object SO there is a shot and in the other you want to control it WHEN there is a shot -- but yeah, get a lot of more of your hands on the, err, item.

BTW, "Kimmie" appears HOT -- whoever goes to the place to vid them needs to confirm this.

Edited to add that I'd put the pic up of what I'm referring to, but apparently I only have like .92mb total attachment privileges (I noticed this some days ago, but forgot to send the admins a PM that I think the software is being wierd)...

"Spent a long time on the island of Maui upcountry ...."

Dang, did I miss out on a battle ribbon? :biggrin:

26 September 2010, 12:48
I would consider filiming a class, but I think my time is better spent with my kids.

(Preparing them for the zombie apocalypse -- that's a good one).

Thanks again!

Wow, that chick is SMOKE-in'. For a brunette, I mean.

Sharky, it is important to point out that "Proto Cal", is pronounced in the same manner as The Lady's Man pronounces "Courvoisier"

FAT something picture....I would have posted to comment to that pic, but I have the problem with attachments that I mentioned above. I'm ASSuming that is a chick on the outside of the car? There are at least two pics of that situation on their website, and neither give me enough confidence to state that the blonde is a female....
