Yeah, I'm elite...for the first time in my life...and with a 0-9 record too!
With my record, do you know how funny it is when I go to the tournaments and they say I am a Master?

Once I went to a BJJ tournament and they said that neck cranks were legal for everybody. You could tell who the BJJers were and who the sub grapplers were. Half of us were shaking our heads as if to say, "WTF?!, that **** is illegal for a reason." The other half were licking their lips and rubbing there hands together in an evil way.
The Non-BJJers took out their frustrations on some of us that day.

**** elitist Bjjers. Post up your grappling profile anyway. Who cares if you're not in the club. Besides, it would annoy the purists.
Or you could just start a better thread...

Im going to make a separate thread thanking Omega for his contributions to the Gracie Jiu Jitsu cause.
In his professional fights, you can clearly see omega trying to work the takedown (Gracie Jiu Jitsu) attain a dominant position on the ground (Gracie Jiu Jitsu) and sometimes even finish the fight with a quick guillotine (Gracie Jiu Jitsu).
On top of that, Omega is skilled at hitting his opponents fists with his face so as to tire them out and wear them down that he may take advantage of an exhausted opponent (Gracie Jiu Jitsu).
Lets make a poster with his photo and BJJ plastered all over it so all those who see it will properly recognize him as a BJJer.
