Sempre aprendendo com este homem e esses caras. Obrigado prof Renzo pelos truques 
Dia maravilhoso! 

 

It's just pretty awesome that the Sheikh of a country halfway around the world is one of Renzo's black belt and has made the gentle art a national sport there.

Actually, your implication could not be more wrong. He has been a life long martial artist and is also a black belt in other arts (sambo, etc.)

The story is that he was studying in NYC and while he was training Renzo did not know of his royal status. He would clean the mats and acted like everyone else.

It wasn't until a long time later that Renzo found out.

It was Nelson Monteiro in San Diego and Sheik was there attending school apparently no one new he was royalty and he didn't act like it.

His skills are supposed to be legit, as he has had the best grapplers in the world to his palace to train with him. If I remember correctly Nelson lived out there for quite some time and so did Sean Alvarez.

It took him a long time to get his black belt so I believe he absolutely earned it. He also created the ADCC which has been a great gift to the grappling world.

WithoutSpoilersdotCom - thought this was another one of your beast ass drawings. kind of disappointed

This is the first image that came to mind when I read "beast ass"... 

 

Nader, the sheikh is legit. He's been training with Renzo and flying him over for privates as well as flying in top grapplers consistently for over a decade. Renzo's got some pretty awesome stories about him too if you ever get a chance to talk to him about it.

I actually rolled with him back in I think 2001.

Whether he is a legit BB I don't know but I know he is very passionate about the sport and likes learning.

Because, like the X-Man Cyclops, his eyes must be covered with dark glasses to prevent the streams of oil that constantly shoot out of them otherwise.
