Paul Cave - martial arts / MMA instructor?
I was given a leaflet recently advertising this dojo. The instructor claims to be a black belt in pretty much everything, but having watched Royce Gracie in the early UFCs I was especially interested in "Specialised Tuition in Brazilian/Russian Jiu Jitsu".
He *may* be a great kickboxing guy, but I know there are lots of clubs jumping on the BJJ bandwagon and wanted to find out what qualiifications he has to teach. So I sent an email to ask...
Heres a scan of the leaflet
Heres his website

Hi Mr. Cave,
I'm very interested in brazilian jiu jitsu and I see from your flyer
that you specialise in teaching it. Can I respectfully ask what belt
you have in BJJ, and who you've trained with please?

Please allow me to respectfully respond to your request regarding
the abilities of Shihan Paul Cave. Firstly a name would have been in order. Secondly, if you have any doubts regarding the abilities of the head of our style, I invite you to come to a class and experience first hand what we offer. The training and gradings that Shihan Paul has done over the past 35 years is unexplainable and most defenitely not to be justified to someone that does not even introduce himself.
