    Sensei Al Perry just challenged me... for asking about his BJJ lineage!!! lol

    Ok, this started on myspace, and is now on Sensei Al Perry's own forum. Apparently this guy is leading people to believe he is a black belt in BJJ.


    Anyway one of his students started spouting off in a myspace group, and when I asked him the simple question of who his teacher (Al) got his black belt from he got belligerant and started telling me how his sensei was going to kick my ass, lol. Then he gave me a link to his school's forum, and told me to get in touch with his teacher through there, so I said fine, and put up a fairly respectful post, expecting a respectful response, but what I got was hilarious. I think I was challenged by his teacher, lol!


    Anyway I accepted his challenge, and I can assure you there will be video footage if it goes down (the guy is right in NJ).


    Here is the thread on his forum:

    here is the original myspace thread:

    I am seriously cracking up inside :)

        Mike, you know *exactly* what's going to happen...'

        1. You'll never get a straight answer as to this guy's lineage.
        2. This fight will never happen. Somehow he'll let you know that in his cowardice you're beneath him and he won't actrually show up.

        And btw, kinda hard to look someone up on NAGA when you don't know their real name, lol. Yeah, let's just look up "Michael". That's almost as bad as looking up "Dave"!

          Blue Belt. I got my belt from Fransisco Mansor, but I currently train under Joey Scarola (no jokes please)...


          that was suprisingly easy...


          and while I'm a blue belt I actually decided to start competing at purple belt in my next tournament. I've won my last three blue belt tournaments (gi) without giving up any points except for one takedown in the last one. I have also compete at Expert level no-gi, and have done well.

            My last name is Sanford for anyone who cares. I think NAGA spelled it wrong a few times in the past though (like Stanford, then my first name could be Mike, Michael, or Mikey), but if you look me up on the NAGC results they have it right: "Mikey Sanford" (pretty sure I'm the only Mikey). I also requested that they change my name in all 2007 events to "Mikey 'Triangles' Sanford" for just that reason, lol


            and this guy doesn't live far from where I usually compete anyway. I am not above going to his school if he's seriously challenging me.

              Yeah, I thought you'd give me an answer like that: straight, simple and actually answering the question. I would bid you "go woop this guy's ass" but as someone else said there's little chance of a fight ever happening.

                Well, if by some fluke the guy actually graces you with his presence, you must post video.

                  Basically what everyone is going to say is leave it alone.

                  Seriously, you let another poster get you into a challenge with a guy who has no verifiable outrageous claims.

                  Now, if you prove mecho=SenseiAl, you might have an argument. We've seen ranks of legit BJJ practitioners get screwed up here at bullshido.

                  What if this is the same scenario.

                    well that's what I am trying to find out. If he's legit then I will drop it, if not I'd like to drop him at this point. He's managed to get under my skin.

                        yeah, but I haven't been on subfighter in a while.



                        Anyway does anyone have any evidence supporting this guys claim? anything at all? even word of mouth? because I've never even heard his name before...


                        If he is a legit black belt I would like to drop this.

                            Don't let him do that. It's an amateur mistake and can lead to you acting like an immature ass.

                            There's nothing unreasonable about wanting to verify someone's rank as long as you remain professional. I'd suggest posting another respectful post on his forum. Tell him you aren't interested in being a BJJ enforcer or disrespectful, but that you care about the quality of your art and that many people out there are claiming rank in BJJ who have none so that they can bolster their school's enrollment. Inform him that simply offering up his lineage will clear the whole thing up.

                            Most likely, you'll have to disclose your own lineage to maintain the appearance of fairness and professionalism if you haven't done so already (I don't have time to read the links right now).
                            Shut the hell up and train.

                              I find it troubling the way they circled the wagons like they did. Something's definately not right there. Anyone who has legit lineage has no problem sharing the info. Hell, anyone who has legit lineage is proud to share it. Kick his ass if you can.
