Loop35's account is very enlightening.
kickassfighter, I don't believe your instructor has ANY formal training in BJJ let alone credentials to teach or advertise to consumers that he is qualified to teach BJJ. That is what this thread is about.
I believe the ISKA World Championships in Orlando, within the past 5 years or so, have included grappling divisions. Depending on where this tourney falls with the NAGA dates in Orlando I would be willing to take you up on your offer to demonstrate the quality grappling and BJJ instruction you are being provided by Mr. Cave.
If we can't meet up in competition you are more than welcome to come and train at "American Top Team - Orlando" while you're in town.
Hope to meet up with you or train with you in July.
Thanks for the invite. I think a training session will be much appreciated. I would like to get some more info from you and I would like to share some more info with you. Can you somehow send me an email address or link where I can contact you directly? Much appreciated.

Is this Newbietown? zomg lolololol great thread OP!!!
ISKA lolol. I love when watching the tube that **** comes on ESPN. It's like an icebreasker for all those who have never heard of BJJ or MMA.
Joe "Wow, that is so awesome! I'd hate to meet him in a dark alley!"
Me "meh, I hope i DO!!!"
Joe "Oh, so you can do those kicks?"
Me "Sit down my friend, there is much to discuss <reaches for UFC 1-7>"
We host an open mat every saturday from 11:30 to 12:30 at the academy in Cape Town. It's open to anyone from any club, and is free. All are welcome.
Since this was bumped yet again.
This is what instructors should do when questioned and it is this easy.
Odd claim against Mark Tripp's credentials, his response. - No BS Martial Arts
No, it doesn't have to be on bullshido, it can be on their own website.
