    Yes, has a bad rep on the UG forum and has history of it in the UK.

    Conde has had issues in the past, but having trained with Israel I can vouch he is completely legit

    Sadly, choosing to associate with Conde will make many think otherwise. There are plenty of blackbelts in the UK, why would someone choose to affiliate to someone outside the UK who is known to sell rank? People will wonder.

    the world of bjj affiliation is a strange and often troubled one
