    I have always been curious as to what kimos ethnic background was, according to wiki his mother is german but what was his father? Italian? but than how does he have a hawaiian first name? Also what exactly was his martial arts background as he was billed as being a tkd practitioner and i remember seeing a clip of him performing tkd kicks on a bag before his fight with Royce but I read this wasn't true and if that were the case why was he wearing muay thai shorts when he made his debut? How did he learn how to give Royce such a hard time?

    He's part Eskimo on his step-father's side.

    I mean where did he learn how to fight? Was he simply an ex football player who studied gracie jj tapes and was given a pair of muay thai trunks by Art Davie that night?

    I believe he was just a guy with a menacing look, who had street/bar fights. Davie gave him the black belt in TKD, to make him seem legit.
