I'd like to share some WTF moments during BJJ class.

-Two years ago. Guy emails me about training. He's a purple belt under Ari Galo (Carlson Gracie Team), from Luxembourg. I welcome him to our school. Guy shows up, with blue gi and purple belt. Guy gets handled by the beginner white belts, and murdered by the blues. Turns to me and says: "It's because I didn't do a proper warm up. I do yoga every day." Guy never returns...

A month ago I see this kid at the Dutch Open, competing in the WHITE BELT division for another team. And losing. I walked up to greet him, and he couldn't even bring himself to even look me in the eye...

-Other new guy keeps trying to choke his opponent with his foot. While getting smashed and passed over and over. I ask: what on god's green earth are you trying to do? He says: Well I saw this GREAT move on Submissions 101...

I heard friends in the States complaining about this, but now also in Holland we have to guard ourselves against the shit moves of Ari Bolden...
