I don't think anybody is saying anything bad about that particular UG member.

Besides, I generally don't judge someone's ideas based on anything other than those ideas.

I am not anybody special. I'm just a random internet forum poster who likes grappling. I also don't expect anybody to judge me based on anything other than my ideas. I had a good Grapplers Quest a few years ago and tapped a brown belt and a black belt using leg lock strategies similar to what Reilly Bodycomb teaches. This is really not anything special. A lot of guys have done the same. The video of those matches was posted in a few different places including this site. It's not really anything spectacular. My brother has also taken a bunch of medals in the advanced division at Grapplers Quest using similar strategies. I only referenced it earlier because someone raised the issue of whether I was working only on theory.

Not my point at all.What I am saying is I know who he is,and he knows his stuff. As far as your statement,here is what you said," I have tapped BJJ Brown and Blackbelts",now you are changing your story to having a good day a few years ago at a Grapplers Quest,and tapping a Brown and a Black that day. As in singular,not like you inferred posts back,that you have tapped multiple Blackbelts.

I like Gi and no-Gi,I am a 4 stripe purple belt. I have trained both,liked both. In my opinion,coming up in the Gi produces a better grappler,however,I respect the other side of the argument too.

BJJWRESTLER - "BJJ Brown and Blackbelts"


That's not what I said I put a space before belts so that it wouldn't look like I was implying multiple black belts. But, it doesn't really matter. I stated that my wins were humble, nothing fantastic, and that I would hope my ideas would be judged on their own.

It's cool, we can just agree to disagree. No big deal.

The thing is,and I am sure you have noticed,the approach you have taken when you post, not just showing your admiration for the no-Gi game,but the hostile approach you have trying to prove the point that no-Gi/Submission wrestling is superior to the Gi game.
You try way too hard,dude. Otherwise, you will continue to get heat on here.

Like I've said before, the thing that I believe is that the gi is not necessary to do well in no-gi.

Heat? Even the existence of this forum seemed to cause friction with certain people for a while. hahahaha Why? I don't know.
