    Kevin chan deseves his black belt....
    2005 worlds (silver)
    2005 Pan Ams (bronze)

    There are some BJJ players in the UK that certainly dont deserve there grades.........

    Got to be honest though, BJJ is getting watered down compared to years ago!

    Kevin Webb of Gracie Barra Birmingham is still a purple belt! He is one of the best people ive ever trained with!
