    Set me straight.

    In general is it frowned apon to promote a bjj program while wearing a judo black belt while being ranked a purple in bjj. Or just a little shifty.

    Depending on exactly what you mean by 'promote' it sounds at minimum slightly unwise.

    If you have to ask, you may have answered your own question. If I was a black belt in Judo, I would focus on Judo and integrate bjj on the side, but I wouldn't in good conscience be able to sell the idea that i am an expert if I only held a purple belt just my 2.

    Yes it's pretty shifty. Yea it's kinda frowned upon. People will assume because you are wearing a black belt, and promoting BJJ that you are a BJJ black belt. Wear your purple belt, it's more honest. And there is nothing unimpressive about a purple belt IMHO. I'd take a lesson from someone wearing a purple belt any day.

    By promote I mean to make a promotional video for your website. I'm leaning towards your slightly unwise.

    You weren't very specific on what "promoting" bjj meant. It almost sounded like you wanted to open a bjj program with a purple belt while being or wearing a black belt in judo. If you want a specific rebuttal ask a specific question. It sounded like you were asking if it's ok to mislead or use one belt to promote another form. Not being a dick or anything your question was vague at best.

    I think "is it frowned apon to promote a bjj program while wearing a judo black belt while being ranked a purple in bjj. Or just a little shifty." Is pretty specific. I don't see why it would matter rather it was me or not wrong is wrong.

    But if it makes you happy no it's not me.

    It was a vague question in which the medium of the "bjj promotion's" context would be applied. If their doing a video wearing their purple belt that's one thing, but you didnt specify whether the black belt has their own judo school, and they are trying to add bjj into their judo program while wearing their black belt from judo, which ultimately makes a big fucking difference. If they are attempting to teach "BJJ" while only wearing a black belt they earned in Judo, well you answered your own question, yes it's dishonest, and they would fraud to purport anything other than their actual earned rank.
