    Correct me if I am wrong, but if I recall properly, Anthony was taking privates at ATT with (a) pro fighter(s). Whether it be simply grappling privates or MMA may be germane, however training privately with a pro does bear some note.

    Not that it means much in the grand scheme, except that simply referring to him as a "BJJ White Belt" is misleading.

    Meh, I was trained by Joe Scarola, Pete Sell, and Matt & Nick Serra when I was a white belt. Best training I could ever hope for, but it didn't give me superpowers. I learned and progressed at my own rate.

    would like like a big, bright shiny new nickle or a tiny, dirty, little old dime?

    I'm not claiming Anthony should have walked in with 'super powers' but the financial ability to purchase an extended series of one-on-one private lessons with active pro fighters in what is arguably the top competing gym is a liberty not afforded to all.

    Again, if I am not misremembering.

    Sifu Abel is my only reference point for that term. Never heard it before or since.

    I am only posting to point out the use of the phrase "grappling privates." I assume the cull thread will be synonymous.

    Remind me to not piss off UK Judoka. The phrase "Ukrainian wrestler" makes my balls shrink.
