I would think that with the strong system of grappling that we have in the state a Black belt would wnat to set up shop somewhere in Iowa.  Now there is an arguement that we are not going to pay 100+ bucks a month to train there and that they would not be able to make a living off of it.  Unlike myself, most instructors do not pull down 50,000+ income from their schools in Iowa.  I am fortunate and the front of a BJJ school makes my Jamaican Hash business go much smoother.

You raise an excellent point. Plus, your delivery guy wasn't at the "spot." You'd better check where his loyality is.

Actually Jamacian Hash is brown and I am still working towards that BJJ belt.  I have a DKNY with a platinum belt buckle that represents my "other" style.
