    UK BJJ blackbelt lineage in question. Leo Caldas in Coventry.

    Hi all,

    The UK BJJ UG facebook group are trying to gain knowledge of a Leo (or Leandro) Caldas's BJJ lineage.

    Picture of Leo Caldas wearing his BJJ blackbelt:

    'The way of the spiritual warrior ' gym in Coventry owned by Antony Pillage, Leo Caldas runs the BJJ classes here:

    Video of Leo Caldas rolling:

    Some screencaps from the UK BJJ UG facebook page:

    Post about Leo allegedly telling a BJJ guy's sister via online dating site that he was a BJJ world champion:

    ( Part 4) http://i44.tinypic.com/2r3giep.png

    There is also a UG thread made about this, I am screencapping all of the UK BJJ UG posts because facebook deletes them sometimes during the investigation. I will be sending screenshots over to a few posters over there who have helped with things like this in the past.

    Can anyone confirm if they know Leo Caldas and can verify the legitimacy of his blackbelt?

    Thanks Bullshido.

    There's an e-mail address listed for Way of the Spiritual Warrior (lolname). Maybe someone a little more British and a with a little more BJJ knowledge than me could shoot them an e-mail posing as a prospective student looking for more info on Caldas' BJJ qualifications?

    i have no dog in this fight (other than hating when people refuse to answer lineage questions) but that doesn't look like a BJJ black belt to me, it looks like a belt from another art (kanji on the belt would be odd for a BJJ practitioner.)

    now, of course if he were a legit BJJ BB, then he could wear whatever black belt he wanted to, but it does seem odd considering the questioning of his rank, and all the claims of "proof is in the pudding" from his supporters.
