Jack Williams claims Rhadi Ferguson as his student. (at the lower right corner)
"The pedant is he who finds it impossible to read criticism of himself without immediately reaching for his pen and replying to the effect that the accusation is a gross insult to his person. He is, in effect, a man unable to laugh at himself."

OP, have you searched or posted over at JUDOINFO? I browse over there sometimes and RF seems to be an active contributor.
You might get a faster, more complete response from RF if you were to post there than by sending him an email - but you should still send him an email first so that you can honestly claim you asked RF before posting.
Judo has a bit of a different culture in this regard. The rank standards being centrally set and administered by a promotion board rather than your teacher (at least for any serious rank, generally brown belt and up) you're more a British Judo Association black belt rather than being a 'Liborio Black Belt' like you might be in BJJ.
