Its a large concern of any professional man to be a respected individual in his field.

I hope that when I am a black belt those around me in martial arts will respect that. I think Ari can run all the seminars and sell all the instructionals he wants, but it will come at the cost of his reputation.

BTW my name is Ryan Quinn, I'm from NJ.

That write-up reads like an experienced JJJ guy getting his ass handed to him on the ground by a mediocre BJJ blue belt* and making the guy out to be the second coming of Rickson so as not to lose face. And even if he had the knowledge to evaluate Ari's BJJ, he probably wouldn't admit to bringing a fraud in for a seminar anyway.

(*Ari definitely didn't roll like a blue belt in 2010, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt due to the time transpired since his competition debut. Then again, he had already been grappling for what, eight years at that time?)
