    lol listen to the expert. Why do you think it is watered down?

    Just because there are more purples and browns around?

    Would be worth having him for a seminar mate! Nogi or gi!
    I asked Rob "G" the other week if HE would like to do a workshop, He said he would ask Braulio I had a pm back saying Braulio dident think it was a good idea I can only surmise that because Braulio was not making any money out if it he did not want his students teaching? I can see no other reason? we have always had a good relationship with GB.

    yeez.. How about just giving Kevin Chan props.. Any one who gets a black belt in bjj is someone to look up to. Its a hard road.. Esp under Roger, Mauricio.

    Dtec, Steve,
    YOu are not the only ones to have problems with bjj instructors.. Same like people having trouble with boxing coaches etc.. Not very cool to spout this on a topic of someone geting a bjj black belt imho.. Just give kevin chin some props.

    Note i am not Gracie barra, i dont even know this dude.. But take it somewhere else

    a bjj fan
    Insert whiny message

    Kevin Webb of Gracie Barra Birmingham is still a purple belt! He is one of the best people ive ever trained with!
    Kevin Webb is very good for sure, i think he may be injured at the moment(?) hope it clears up if so and we see him competing again soon. I would say he, Luciano and Mike Russell spring to mind as the best UK based purples at the moment but there are plenty who could be mentioned.

    In general i think the quality control on British Black, Brown and Purple belts is pretty good, you can see a fairly definitive list here: http://www.efnsports.com/forum/index.php?board=25.0

    I think i know the certain player you are referring to but it is unnecessary to mention it on this thread - if you feel that strongly about it, perhaps you could take it up with the black belt in question?


    Where's video of him being flogged by other students?
    Conveniently for them, Black Belts don't get belt whippings.


    No not at all , because Ive heard something today that not many people will have heard!....If you had of heard it you would agree....trust me.
    Well PM me and tell me then
