    mike I just wanted to send you an e-mail
    because I've been getting several virus e-mails sent
    to me. This new virus is attaching itself to e-mail
    accounts everywhere.

    I just wanted to let you know that I don't send anything
    out with an attachment. So if you receive something
    from me that has an attachment. It's not really from
    me and please don't open it.

    I just wanted to let you know in case my accounts are
    ever attacked. Talk to you soon.

    Nice of him.

    shall we use this thread as discussion?


    Ok he goes into Psychology in the first lesson.
    Nothing wrong with it, he seems to say, look at your mistakes and correct them



    "Have you ever had to grapple someone that made you feel
    like youhave claustrophobia?"
    :)

    Did anyone see the pic Phrosty posted in the MMA forum? lmao!

    No it's not.

    He's very open about it.

    If you ask him, personally, he will tell you chat most people would not be able to follow it to the letter, and thus their result won't be quite as spectacular.

    He gives two reasons for this. One - the way he proposes people train is a lot more boring than the convention. I believe it involves insane repetitions of technique drills. You would literaly be doing the same thing for hours and days.
    And secondly, he doubts most people will have the dedication to stick to the program.

    However, he thinks that most people interested in grappling would benefit from it to some extent, depending on their goals, time availiable, etc.

    But in any case, I am not a spokesperson for this guy. If you're interested, talk to him directly. He's very approachable (at least was a couple of months ago) and takes the time to explain things in an intelligent manner.

    "He, Lloyd somethingorother, actually got his legitimate BJJ blackbelt in 3.5 years, and he describes how he did it. Aparently, he can not compete anymore due to an injury, but when he did compete, he did well. His current students that compete perform well."

    ok, so therefore his "program" isn't realistic for most people who have to work or study for a living?

    Actually, this guy is legit.

    I have talked to him on some forum or another about this program of his, and it's actually somewhere along the lines of what Punisher said - train, in a certain way, every day for many hours.

    He, Lloyd somethingorother, actually got his legitimate BJJ blackbelt in 3.5 years, and he describes how he did it. Aparently, he can not compete anymore due to an injury, but when he did compete, he did well. His current students that compete perform well.

    I started getting the email from that sight a while back to see what it is about.

    A bunch of positive visualization and self talk

    I think you misunderstand his take on things, he is not going to certify 'Black Belts'. His focus is giving advice to help people training grappling skills.

    I get the impression his first tip would be: find a competent instructor. . .

    I'd agree its a consumer issue because most of these guys will be forced to admit the limits of their knowledge by competition. Of course one of them could go off to some small town and open his BJJ school and sleeze by without ever being truely challenged.

    Well, the reason this doesn't worry me much is because real grappling arts constantly get out there on the mat and fight! And many also do some form of sport BJJ or NHB. So frauds that got their mail order BB in a coupla years will be easily exposed, either by their poor performance on the mat or their unwillingness to actually fight.

    The competitive nature of MMA and NHB make it difficult, IMO, for frauds to exist. I know there may be a few. But they should always be rare.

    Regards,
    Matt
