I wish I had seen this post but I just recently signed up for this blog and moved from the El Paso area. Interesting...
Thank you for your response. Understand that most of us on this site merely want honesty and evidence to be revealed. Nothing more. The last thing that we want is another pissing contest. My suggestion is to read through the thread and find the specific problems people have presented and retort. Again, thanks for your response.

He talks about winning the pan ams but there is no mention that he did it at blue belt and in a senior division. There is a world of difference between a black belt gold medalist in the adult division as opposed to the say senior 3 division at blue belt. For one, most of those divisions only have like 3 competitors to begin with. All that being said no one is saying your instructor can't grapple, just that he grossly misrepresented credentials which is a big deal to most of us no matter how much you respect the guy.
