    It has already been done, the gym owner is on the UK BJJ UG fb page handing out aggression and being defensive and says he will ask Leo Caldas but is being standoffish and rude.

    more updates and some misogyny from the academy owner:

    The last two show the owner being very rude to one of the BJJ girls asking questions about the lineage.

    UPDATE: http://i40.tinypic.com/2db6ipj.png

    Anthony Pillage, gym owner allowing Leo Caldas to teach at the Coventry gym, has refused to provide details of lineage, and states that nobody has any business questioning it.

    Any ideas on how to proceed?

    Lineage is for sale. Its a scam. Look at the guy in front of you and see if he can grapple. If you turn your business and money over the the right people, you have lineage. If you don't, you have no lineage. Thats how that works.

    There is a Leandro Calvas associated with COJJ (http://www.cojj.com.br/comment.php?comment.news.1855) in some capacity, but he doesn't appear on the FJJB database (http://www.fjjb.com.br/links/diplomados.html) as a blackbelt (Or any other database that I have access to, which is pretty much all of them.)
