    If dudes are depressed enough to lie about shit, go right the fuck ahead. Claim to be a recon airborne ranger master captain sergeant all you want. Saying it doesn't make it true.

    Protect the authenticity of BJJ!

    Lots of Mcdojos out there and BJJ is starting to get more Attention and I'm glad there are people who would chew him out (regardless if it deserved a video or not)

    We must stand on the front lines against all that is Mcdojo!

    Btw, Uncle Henatch is the best in BJJ and would have tapped this guy out for the video. Porra!

    After watching the video, I see ruben's point.


    Also, fuck. If I hadn't joined the military I'd be a blackbelt by now :/

    You tell it somewhat anticlimactically, but it's a good story.

    Not much of a story. I had this Purple belt join our gym over a year ago. He got his rank, supposedly, through a Gracie Barra affiliate. He kept telling me that he was a four stripe purple and left right before getting his brown. I found that unusual considering the school was only 30 minutes away.

    So after rolling for a month at my place I finally got on the floor with the guy to access his skill level. I felt that at best he should've been a mid blue belt but I didn't know the criteria for the other school. He kept asking me when he could get his brown I told him he wasn't ready. Finally I told him that if he could go to a competition and sweep his division I'd award him his brown. He got his ass kicked.

    In December of last year he left my school and went to another school. He showed up there with a brown belt, rumors flew around saying that he got his brown from me. I sent a message back up the grape vine letting everybody know that it wasn't true.

    Last month he showed up to work out claiming he was a brown belt and that he got it from the other gym. After he left I called the founding instructor and asked him if he awarded the guy and he said he hadn't even heard of the guy.

    Two weeks ago I get back from vacation and the guy is standing there in the middle of my floor wearing his brown belt and a gi from the other school. I point at him and told him "No! Take that belt off" and I walked away. He said okay and started to walk over to me. I turned around and told him "I called the instructor who would've awarded you that belt. He doesn't even know you. I don't even want you part of this gym, get the fuck out."

    Blank look on his face he turned around to started to walk out. It took all I had not to call him onto the floor and teach him a lesson.

    I spoke to Ruben yesterday and got his side of the story. I don't think I would do anything different if I was in his shoes.

    Personally, I would be cautious when publicly humiliating someone whose grip on reality may be tenuous. What if he comes back for some kind of twisted idea of retribution. I think I would have confronted him privately with a trusted witness present. Then make it clear that the BJJ community is fairly tight knit and this will not be an advisable stunt to pull again.

    I dunno it's a very sketchy situation, you don't always know the full details of someone's mental state no matter how 'normal' their behaviour may appear.

    After hearing the story in full, I don't have any compunctions about Alvarez's behavior. I think he walked a pretty fine line between setting the guy straight and keeping his cool (perhaps leaning towards the former at times). The impression I got from Alvarez's account is that the guy's problems went beyond wanting to show off and more into the territory of pathological lying, which I guess helps explain how something so absurd came about.

    Either way, the dude's got issues, and even as he was apologizing and admitting he had lied he was offering excuses and attempting to cover his ass with more lies. Falsehood clearly comes very easily to this man.
