    That very last bit in Hillary's comments is somewhat where I was going with the IBJJF question earlier. If anything I was guessing that IBJJF was going to wait to see what the Vieira brothers were going to do about this, and it sounds like they might be doing the inverse. Hopefully, one way or another, one or both of those organizations contacts Barvo directly and asks him those questions point blank.

    Anyone check out the latest Team Beast website? It has the Vieras bros logo and CheckMat logos all over the home page. Surely the Veiras bros have recourse to legal action based on the fraudulent use of their name and organization? Is there a need then to wait for the IBJJF?

    Please be sure to read the entire thread. Matt is using the logos with Leandro's permission; the use isn't fraudulent.

    Leandro and Leo are currently seeing if the IBJJF does anything before they make their final decision on Matt's status in Checkmat.

    From the UG thread:

    Hillary Williams posted the following response from CheckMat about Matt Barvo:

    No, he's not a black belt. Nor is his school affiliated. If he wants to start over with us at white belt, he can, but that's the only option.
    Hillary also said that "[the Vieiras] want links to anywhere still up that claims CM affiliation. Please PM me."

    It also appears that the Team Beast web site is down (http://www.teambeastbjj.com)

    From the UG thread: (sorry, posts are coming in quickly)

    GOREILLAMAN posted the following regarding Todd Bjornethun (purple belt under Matt Barvo):

    Todd in no way tried to defend Matt or his actions. Todd gave Matt the benefit of the doubt but is no longer associated with Matt and told him to take his name of the website(which is now down).

    Todd thinks Matt needs to shutdown the school and believes that is already in process. If Matt tries to keep the school running we have a backup plan for that.

    I"m not usually fond of that sort of thing, but I think in this case I might actually enjoy it. This barvo is a slippery one. I'm guessing he'll be changing his name again (maybe the last name this time) and getting back into the action soon enough-which sucks.

    Updating here, since I can't post on UG yet: Barvo's closed doors, and at least a half dozen of however many (not many) students he have are joining a legit school in town.

    I also heard a funny story from a teammate today, who had rolled at the Boise State BJJ club that Barvo ran for one semester. Said that Barvo was a nice enough guy, but that he only really rolled with the women, shirtless, for 25 minutes at a go and seemed to be doing some pretty unethical things with his and their bodies. Just a little bit of salt for the fatal wound.
