I just signed up to the boards and need to know if this guy is a legit Gracie JJ intructor. He says he talks to Royce alot yet I asked Royce on the forums and he said he doesn't recall the name. I don't want to learn from a guy who lies about his credentials. I think he is talking out his ass. He always has stories about them talking. But anyways a friend told me people on here can uncover the truth on these people so I thought I would give it a shot. The website is usajiujitsu.net.

Yo, do a search for the Gracie. Theres a link some where with someone you can email and they will tell you if he is a certified Gracie Jui Jitsu Instructer.
OR you can ask for pics of him and Royce or other Grace family Members.
I train under Francisco Mansor who got his black belt from Helio. He was in Japan with Helio when he fought Kimura and has pics of it and ****.

i'd be very suspicious if royce doesn't recognize him. post the link to his site on royce's board. there is a picture of him on the site so royce can get a look at the guy.

When he says he talks to Royce a lot, does he say over the phone, in person, or on a chat group? I mean Royce "talks" to a lot of people every day. Heck I even "talked" to Royce before. Now ask him if he remembers Jeremy. ha.ha.ha.ha...
The question to ask is where did he train for the BJJ? Who was his instructor? Does he claim Royce to be his instructor? Did he go to BJJ seminars where Royce may have taught? You need to ask more in depth questions about his background and what he means when he says he "talks" to Royce.

Ask on the BJJ forum on the Underground. You'll get a quicker reply from a broader section of the community. Royce is not affiliated with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu(tm) anymore. It's possible that when this guy says "Gracie" Jiu Jitsu, he means post-Royce Torrance, or Carlson, or Renzo, etc.
If he turns out not to be Torrance affiliated, don't let Rorion find out, or there will be big twubbo.

nm about Torrance affiliated, one of my friends just yelled at me that Royce is still affiliated with Torrance and that I am an idiot. *shrug*
