What happened to the BJJ tournament?

I think it's awesome we can read about people's views and why they are training, what they hope to get out of it, how it's going for them; I don't care how validation seeking it appears, as long as it is informative and entertaining, go for it! There's also FEW PEOPLE that actually open up so much as battlefields on this site when they write posts for good or bad.
It's a bit pretentious, but that's not so bad.
More importantly, when he is trying to take a moral high-ground over Devil yet then writes about doing the exact same thing;
despite having taken the opposite stance within a week,
i think it deserves being pointed out.
Everything else is just weaseling on his part.
There's little you can do for friends that you speak to and warn about bullshido if they've made up their mind.
What happened to his holier than thou altruism?
Invite the mate to a class.
Heck Sirc claims to have paid for 6 months of DTTs BJJ classes.
You could tie him in a knot, scream in his ear and take his hat!
"Little you can do..", please, that goes against the basic premise of this site.
I don't know where you get that from but that's not what he said happened.
I'm sure battlefields went over all the usual points, like he said in his follow up, and the friend would have smiled and said something like "yeah, cool, but I really like it/I don't really have a problem with that now/naw, he's the real deal no matter what you say".
So you either say your piece and leave it hoping they'll come back and talk to you when they're ready for something real, or you have a massive falling out with them and don't have them as a friend any more. It's the same deal with religion, I feel.
No, because you can show him what works.
Why are you guys tired all the time?
It is TIRING to continue to argue about it in a public space. You can't force a change of mind, you can only hope they will change their mind or at least think about what you've said. He seems to have achieved this and also provided an entertaining thread.
I link and quote were i accuse people of lying and hypocrisy.
I think the attacks about the lack of honesty or an intention to lie about items he has written about have fired everyone up.
So good ol'fashioned racism 'my race has been mistreated the most' fight now? I guess...continue?
"Races have", i win.
