Synado - 
BayviewJiuJitsu - Sounds like someone is trying to hype up a Royce Gracie affiliate since Royce is mentioned as "challenging" one of the fake bb's and your also accused of not being able to "hold par" with Royce Gracie blue belts. Is there some affiliate near by? Have some badass blue belts come into your school doing the Gracie Train?

Based off this post I want to make a preemptive strike for Steve Hall who is Royce Gracie affiliate in the area to avoid finger pointing. I was thinking of visiting Luis but made a post on here and Steve invited me over. I told him when I was there that I was thinking of going to Luis place because it closer, but his time was off. Steve said he was a cool guy and said nothing bad about him. Just before this spirals into some wackiness. I know Steve used to post on these boards and might chime in at some point. But if it is a Royce affiliate, I am sure it wasn't Steve. This is when I just dropped into town on a visit. I also trained with one of Gerbils students who was a nice guy and very sharp. I have respect for both of them and don't want some OG math turning this thread into a mess.

Steve Hall is good people.

As legit as they come.

Steve Hall and I are good friends. He is equally shocked by this post.

I guess as a academy owner, you need to protect your reputation.

However, you got your Black Belt from a legend like Gordo- no need to even respond to criticism of your skills or legitamacy.

If I ever get my black belt from my teacher, I will laugh at anyone who suggests that I don't "deserve" it...(while eating a bag of chips and soda in front of them.)

I see on the Screamin Reviews website that there is a link to "file a complaint". Would you like the Atama forum to do a lil complaining?

I followed the link from the original post...

http://screamingreviews.com/warning-of-fake-bjj-instructors-and-blackbelts-in-north-and-south-carolina/?goback=%2Egde_166112_member_222103048

You will see a blinking red link (button) up in the top right corner that says "file a complaint"

Not only is Jeremy Arel a super legit Black Belt, but he's also one of the most generous academy owners I've had the privilege of visiting with. And he's kicked my butt every time I've trained with him. :) 

Awesome teacher, too.

SiuHung - Gerbil, I don't know you personally and have never trained with you (although I'd welcome the opportunity). Your youtube vids are always very detailed and helpful and I have no doubt whatsoever of the legitimacy of your rank. I always am impressed with the selfless sharing of your knowledge.
Forget this fool, recover and get back on the mat. It's just some desperate Ahole who's trying to get a rise out of you.

I guess that didn't come off the way I intended. I don't know Steve Hall but I wasn't trying to point a finger at him. I figured that it was probably a student and probably a blue belt who had stopped by Gerbil's and had a chip on their shoulder. I thought the references to Royce were pretty random and pretty specific. You don't always hear people specifically reference Royce Gracie Blue Belts when comparing others. Just my thought, didn't mean to offend anyone. Phone Post

It's unfortunate that he simply retracted it. He should issue an update with a formal apology. People who have read it, aren't going to notice that it's now missing... He did say that he would update the post with whatever response that Gordo gave.

Send a cease and desist letter to the website host for slander.

They will say they aren't responsible for content but maybe that can get them to give you information on who is Phone Post
