It's my mission to put this man's career as a scammer to an end. We will help all his victims and we will hopefully put this man in his place- behind bars or in major trouble with the law so he can pays his dues from all the years of life as a criminal.
Abdeslam (Assou) Hamdaoui
You may know of 'Prof.Harvard' from Champion BJJ in Arlington Heights on Rand Rd.
You may also know him by a couple of other names, Assou Harvard, just Assou but you may not know his real name is Assou Hamdaoui.
He refuses to put his real name on his OWN business website. He has changed his name to run from his shady reputation.
IF THIS DOESN'T TELL YOU ENOUGH...READ ON.
* He may have convinced you that he is from Brazil, but don't be fooled.
* Many have reported that he is Arabian or other Middle Eastern ethnicities, but indeed he is from Morocco.
* He uses his charm and dark complexion to convince you that he has trained in Brazil along the Gracie family, when in fact he can't speak a word of Portuguese.
* He claims to have a 6th degree Black Belt. This is false. His site says he's a Gracie Barra black belt. This is also false. He was an instructor at Extreme Couture and they fired him. Gracie Barra also yanked their name off his school when they found out he had sketchy info.
* These are the black belts listed in the Federation Paulista: http://www.fpjj.com.br/info/faixaspretas.htm
. Not surprisingly he is not listed.
* He has scammed thousands out of their money, signing unreliable contracts and there are many reports that could be found online. Simply google 'Assou Harvard' and you will reveive endless search results- NONE of them are positive.
