    Dutch guy - bjj blackbelt in England?

    Alexander Leijten -- Anyone heard of this guy?
    I don't think the BJJ commiunity in England is that big so a bjj blackbelt should be well known.

    Nope, not heard of him. Who does he claim to have got the belt from? Roger Gracie would be a possibility but it was mentioned in a recent thread that he only has 3 Black Belts under him:

    *Ray Stevens (Promoted 04/2008)
    *Nick Gregoriades (Promoted 09/2008)
    *Alex Faria (Promoted 06/2009)

    Most 'black belt academy' styled places are mcdojo belt mills on contracts etc, that doesn't mean that it is, but that's the typical marketing here.

    Can't believe i forgot about Pardoel!
    yeah he's awesome too, and also in oss if im correct.

    Thing is, we don't have too many bjj clubs, its coming, but as far as i know we only have 2 black belts residing in Holland, ofcourse some bb's come over from the usa or whatever.
