    From my perspective he is more than welcome to continue teaching gi/no-gi grappling so long as he isn't claiming to be ranking people in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu simply because those people would then be given the false impression that their rank would be recognized by the BJJ organizations. If you aren't worried about affiliating specifically with BJJ related entities, then teach whatever you want, call it Grappling, and go about your business.
    At that point your worth rests solely on your ability to teach and the performance of you and your students on the mats. If you decide to take the extra leap and claim that you are a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blackbelt teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, then someone is going to want to see some verification of your credentials in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

    At that point if you're unwilling or unable to provide them you start to look awfully shady.

    Teaching BJJ does not in and of itself imply any affiliation other than whats on the dojo door. Other than that, I agree with what you wrote.

    It implies that your rank will be recognized by other BJJ instructors, which may or may not be important to the student, but should be acknowledged.

    If you go from an independent school to an affiliation, you can usually just register your belt then and there. As for visitors, its a petty instructor that takes a belt off a visitor because of politics. A belt implies a certain level of skill in jiujitsu. All of this other stuff is fucking up the art.
