    Where did you find that out? I looked over his website and could only find his extreme love for all things "Chute Box". I'm surprised there weren't pictures of him with Silva and the Rua brothers at a seminar somewhere.

    Is MMA larping okay then? Can I be an MMA larper?

    I'm gonna go buy some sprawl shorts and a Tapout rashguard.

    What he is driving at is your "word" isn't 100% confirmation.

    Did you guys email each other?
    Is he ranked in BJJ?
    Is he claiming actual school instruction or is he self taught?

    Your answer of 6 years 15 years with no context doesn't help.

    He said he was a MT instructor at RIMA in Raleigh. He didn't say anything about his BJJ rank, but he said he could train me for a fight.

    Good deal. Well, at least he's willing to communicate. I guess now would be the time to ask the hard questions with a soft tone.

    Wow. Well, with that statement, he stepped all the way in it didn't he?

    Talked to my coach about it, turns out he got kicked out of RIMA because he was telling people he was an instructor. He was only there a few months before he pissed off the real instructors there.
