    Right so Mr Rob who I highly respect by the way did you or did you not teach as a blue belt back in 2005? Now I know I act like a fool but im actually more clued up about this sport then I give myself credit for lol. And did you take trips to brazil to get graded etc. Now This is not aimed at you as I know your a serious player but iv seen guys rushed through gradings in the past just to make say Gracie barra more money.

    No I didn't teach as a blue belt.

    I've never been to Brazil, can't afford it.

    I've seen dubious promotions in pretty much every organisation, but I don't know of any by Braulio or at our academy, and that's all I care about.

    Quite interested in why you worded the questions the way you did... saying "did you or did you not" is implying that you thought I did surely?

    Also wonder why you ask whether I took trips to Brazil to be graded? I've never even been graded, I have just been promoted whenever Braulio decided it was time.

    But those things were aimed at me... you said "did you or did you not" which is how people ask if they are already assuming the answer. Also why does going to Brazil have anything to do with getting promoted? Those things were direct questions about me.

    Take it as you will I was asking you a question im not looking for a argument if it came across wrong then I appoligize you are a legit instructor and I respect you highly please forgive my ignorance my sincere apologies. I was on about when the jitz boom started and there was not enough black belts in the country to grade so a few was fast tracked from white and upwards. Sorry for making it look as if I aimed at you was not a personal attack on your school or reputation and if anyone thinks it was then it was me talking out of my ass.

    It's not an argument, I'm just confused at the wording you used
