Atama BJJ Forum member Sugarfoot recently suggested we come up with a new color for the screen names of BJJ black belts. I have a deep list of stuff that the site needs, so as a work around, I would like to offer any black belt on the Atama BJJ Forum a platinum name, noting that they are a black belt, noting their city and state, and linking to their gym or the academy they received their black belt from.

I am the official records keeper for MMA, so for MMA fighters I can readily verify background. There does not exist at present an equivalent for BJJ, so it will be tougher. Therefore, in order to set the name Platinum, I am asking for:

1. Your real name. This will become your screen name. If you have a nickname that you go by in the community, that too is great. If you are particularly attached to your screen name, it can stay provided your name is in your account.

2. A compelling online reference to your rank (could be your site, images on your Facebook, etc). If there is nothing online about you, I am not suggesting that your rank is not legit. It does however mean that I can't verify it. The online reference will be linked to your screen name.

3. The name and url of your gym, the gym you teach at, or the gym from which you received your black belt.

4. Your city and state/province/country. This too will go on your public display. Note, 3 and 4 could be the same.

5. Your lineage, which will be kept on file.

I mean no disrespect in asking for these question, and am not suggesting that I am some authority as to whether someone's rank is legit. I am just trying to allow people who have given so much to the sport to have some due recognition if they post here.

Obviously anyone abusing the system will be get bounced, and will have earned their place in the Creep Hall of Fame.

Anyone interested is invited to email Kirik@MMA.tv

Yah, given the kinship between BJJ and MMA, and the fact that this is a BJJ forum, the focus at present is on BJJ black belts. Judo is obviosuly a phenomenal base for MMA and a phenomenal combat sport; it not a statement on the relative merits of BJJ and MMA, at all.

Thanks. Halfway there as a purple belt. Just wanted to check as I'm a black belt in judo too. Very cool concept! Phone Post 3.0

awesome concept...although I don't see why people can't keep their screen name as long as their real name is verified. I mean shit...a lot of these guys have had their screen names for 13+ years
