Big Aaron Gardiner from EPIC BJJ is having a crack.

He's a Judo Brown Belt, BJJ Blue (who's really at least a purple) and should have a pretty good chance.

any reason why u say aaron should be a purple?
i saw him compete at the nsw no gi bjj comp earlier in the year and lost. he didnt look that amazing as to warrant purple belt status.
he is a big guy for sure, and im sure he knows his stuff, but what makes u say he is purple?

Everyone can have a bad one and lose on the day. He's basically bulldozed every comp he's be in.

Not trying to derail the thread from the Judo comp, but considering Aaron won 3 of 4 Divisions at the 2008 PanPacs (coming 2nd to Ebersole in the no-gi open), countless state circuit comps and the 08 Machado Nats, I've heard more than a few appropriate people comment that he should be promoted. From my discussions with Aaron, he's waiting to go back to China to get the belt from his 'real' coach, Chet Quint.

Anyway, back to the Judo comp.

Checked out the comp for about 1.5 hours. Some pretty good matches. Saw more than a few guys who obviously are doing BJJ with their Judo (unless De La Riva sweeps are taught in Judo?).

Saw A LOT of drop seoinage attempts that usually resulted in scrappy scramble and a quick matte call.

Pretty good IMO.

p.s Aaron didn't end up competing due to messing his knee up in training.
