General AJJ question
I hit a search on this, to find out what it was, because some douche in my town has opened up shop, and is claiming to be a purple under Steve Crawford. His name's Jayson "Uncle Belico" Hawkins. He's running his gym "Hawkins MMA" And his mouth all through Southern Oregon. Any of you AJJ guys even heard of this guy? This is the one place I could think to verify his story.
I found a guy called brandon Hawkins MMA easily enough on youtube. He's got a pro-fight against a pancake of an opponent who he dutifully smashes but not very impressively. I'd say look for yourself and decide what he's worth.
He's not listed here : http://www.crawfordsmma.com/site/vie...SchoolTree.pml

I assume he's come here because a couple of staff members of the site are associated with Crawford. Or maybe he didn't know that and just thought someone would do his homework for him.

That would be great. I did as much homework on him as I could, but since this is "THE" martial artist resource, I figured I'd ask here.
