I am fully aware of what I wrote. I was in fact referencing his constant reference to his black belt getting there in July.

You know I'm sick of this thread being in the Fraud section. If you're going to conduct investigations and accuse somebody of being "Bullshido" then know the definition.
We know about your post on the UG:
If you don't like a school then you don't like it. If you want to humorously bash a school with a little "OMFG LOL", that's one thing; but you're trying to tear down a school with an apparent reputable instructor. Now if you guys want to be pretentious and elitist, again that's up to you, but you don't have to be colossal pricks about it.
For the record if you have a problem with it I'll be at the Mega Throwdown in Boston this year. You guys are more than welcome to fly over and teach me a lesson.

He answered all the questions except for the Jiu jitsu. If he would have simply said we teach army combatives, not Bjj. Because army combatives is not Gracie Jiu jitsu. Its a lot more than that. like I said in a previous post if he would have reached out to the Bjj community about losing his black belt, there are plenty who would have helped out covering the classes, and I would have volunteered, free of charge to help out Until their instructor got ranked in Bjj

*edit to clarify*
Running a grappling program in the interim is fine as well. You don't need to have a GJJ black belt seal of approval on your ass to run a no-gi grappling class. There's many programs that put out capable submission fighters that don't have any formal rank in BJJ at all. If this guy is keeping the school running until he can find another instructor to fill the gap of their BJJ credentials, and isn't promoting people in BJJ, then there is no fraud here imo.

For the record, yelm is an internet elitist asshole. I find it utterly hilarious that you fought and have a winning record, but sit here and stir up ****. Go roll with these guys if you think they are so terrible and shouldn't be teaching. I find it funnier that you come here and don't tell the entire story to why you posted on bullshido.
Do everyone a favor and explain why Mark flipped out. I may not agree with everything he said, but I NOW completely understand his tone. I also understand his defensiveness and anger directed at SJ and OS.
