    Some instructors are OK with you wearing the belts you earned from different styles. My KK sempai told me it was cool to wear my current belt in BBT if I wanted to, but instead I dug out my old white belt and wore that one instead. Simply because I don't want someone visiting and seeing me being a higher rank than his other two students and wondering why their kyokushin looks a lot better than mine. This way they simply say "Oh, he's a noob" and it's all better for it. Hell, I'd wear a white belt all the time for all I care, belts don't mean ****.

    IIRC, one legal move is slipping someone's kick and elbowing them in the face while you reap at their supporting leg.

    I gotta say Im disappointed with some of you guys. You guys are raggin on a guy you donít even know. I will admit, Paul is an old friend of mine. I havenít seen him in some time but I trained with him for 6 years. Hell the guy lived in my house for 2 years.
    Lets start with the pic. Paul is the one on the bottom not the one wearing the gay shoes.
    For the years I trained with Paul he was one of the most knowledgeable, patient teachers I had. Im not gonna throw rocks but I bet you guys arenít half the teacher he is. He has legitimate belts in several disciplines and studied for 3 years IN BRAZIL where he won BJJ tournaments. He was already had a black belt in Judo and Karate by then but DAMB! Thatís not easy. He has opened kid schools at non profits for no money. He won a fukin Pan Am metal sambo for god sakes. This is great guy who has been contributing the the MMA community for over 20 years. He is the epitome of what MMA is all about. This guy is the original journeyman. You guys need to get a grip. There is no BS with this guy. If any of you had any class youíd call him and ask what the deal is. The owner may have asked him to wear the BB all the time, Who knows, non of you guys seem to.
    Usually this forum is great at weeding out the tards in the sport. Sorry to say but you guys missed on this one.

    He left brazil with a blue belt. The pic was taken after. He was in brazil in 98'.
    He started taking in 84 do the math. I dont care if it was 10 years ago. Your wrong.

    Then why does he list his rank in BJJ as "Green" belt? All that does is make him look like a complete idiot to anyone with any BJJ experience at all.
