Hey guys

Haven't been able to get on here in a while, but I haven't forgotten this place

Anyway this week Mikey Triangles from my club had a friend from NY come down to visit and train with us for a few days at Alan Belcher MMA Club. he's a real good black belt under Joe D'Arce and one of the head instructors at Vamos Mixed Martial Arts in New York, but Mikey thought a fun way to introduce him to the class would be to slap him in a white belt and have him talking a little bit about how great he is because of his 8 months of kung fu training and experience watching Ultimate Fighting. Everyone was ignoring him until we started doing some live training, then it got fun. Here is Alex at my gym pretending to be an annoying know it all new student with an 8-month kung fu background, enjoy the clip!

I hope you've been keeping up with my vlog, had a few good episodes since the last time I posted here, and if you missed them check them and some more cool videos out at and also check out for more updates on my training camp for Michael Bisping!

no your an idiot our gym is more of a family atmosphere. there are no egos there. im one of the jiu jitsu instructors there along with Mikie "triangles" Sanford and Alan of course and we always strive to have our training revolve around the team. we cross train with many other gyms and have people from other gyms come train with us all the time

It was humorous, but perhaps the wrong lesson is taken. None of the humiliated members of the Belcher team will ever take it easy on a new member again. A day of laughs could cost the academy future members. What do I know, but this could be a culture killer.

Alot of great trainers have a pretty lackluster career. Belt system in BJJ is merit based at any decent school. Perhaps your experiences differ?

With the ego`s as high as they are in MMA & Jiu-Jitsu....I personally thought that it was outstanding.

requires a basic understanding of JJ to recognize the humor
