Tuning in a little late to the discussion, I have a few thoughts.
1. I salute your investigative spirit. Please take screen shots of everything relevant to include the fb pages, youtube videos, websites etc.
2. Please do not be passive aggressive with your questions. In other words, it's not relevant whether this happens in other countries. Just state your case and the claims you're making and move forward. No one, anywhere, wants a BJJ purple belt to mean nothing. That it is in a country you're not familiar with is only relevant if you can establish that it is relevant (ie maybe there are few or no BJJ blackbelts in his area.)
3. I'm sorry, but Chessman, you do the reputation of London and the UK no favors with your poor command of the English language. I know it's not determinative of the validity of your post, but it does have some effect on your credibility. Please try to work on some basics such as spelling (flies instead of fly's) homonyms (there instead of their, write instead of right) punctuation and the like.

Well, I don't know the guy, but as far as I can see they are competing in regional competitions. If they weren't legit our and Croatian guys would choke them silly.
Ok.... Now I haven't been here in a while, but how the **** did you become a moderator?
