Given that there is no evidence I can see of you doing these things, I'm not sure what the issue is.
    Thanks! That's the truth in a nut shell.

    This is what I checked. most posters were on there saying drop it but it would be good to stop the bs before it spreads! Thanks

    No Sir, we do not generally remove posts from this website. An exception to this rule would be if for example someone printed child pornography here.

    So let me see if I understand this.

    You tell a woman who visits that you teach BJJ.

    You currently do not have a BJJ instructor at the school. They went through an army course that has some BJJ techniques.

    Another instructor will return in August. (What is their name?)

    Why not simply suspend the class until this instructor returns in a couple months?

    Looking at the correspondence he was fairly clear that the instructor was not a belted BJJ instructor, and it's possible to teach a grappling rule set as long as you have the basics down, especially when teaching beginners. That said, I'd expect one serious discount on all of this. A third of the normal price, maybe. The point of keeping the class open is so you don't lose the students, so you have to make sure you aren't fucking them over.

    Also, has your Level 3 guy kept up at all? Those classes are one shot deals, and while they do put in a serious amount of time with them I'd want to make sure that he's actually done some rolling recently. Combatives tournaments have a format that's actually scored by BJJ rules IIRC (I think it mixes in some wrestling too for takedowns, but I could be wrong) so if he's done competitions that would be good information.

    Oooh oooh, can I teach you a lesson too? Maybe color coordinating your gis and accessories? I'm awesome at that.
