Thread: Verified Belt Rankings of UK BJJ Students

    What/who decides who's verified and who's not? Is it case of being registered with the IBJJF or something? I've recently started training with Crazy Monkeys and I didn't see them mentioned once on the list?

    It's already been said... post on EFN. As long as one of the guys who run the list can verify it they'll add it on. Who are Crazy Monkeys? I've never heard of them before.

    Crazy Monkey is Rodney King's (of ex-SBG rather than savage police beating fame) organisation.

    Oh right, I remember... wasn't there some nonsense about "Monkey Jitz" before?? It's BJJ but it's not BJJ?! Something like that iirc.

    so should I run for the hills or? Would any possible promotion (I'm hoping they let me wear a white belt soon) be null and void?

    It's just their BJJ association. The website is full of stuff about competition being secondary to self actualisation, or something, but their lineage is legit.

    You don't have to earn a white belt in BJJ, everyone's a white belt until someone gives them a blue one. Where's Phil's gym? He's on the Crazy Monkey trainer list but I can't find anything on the internet about him being a BJJ black belt.

    Hang on, have they said you can't wear a white belt yet??

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Phil Holden probably isn't a BJJ black belt.

    Hahaha no I was just joking about that, I'm not that green about martial arts, it was just my self debasing sense of humour ;-)

    Darwen, just outside Blackburn. I would just go to the Gracie Barra in Burnley but I can't do the night they train.
