A 4th degree friend was contacted by a famous BJJ guy's representative and asked if he would like to buy a certificate from the famous guy --who he has no relation to, he's not in his lineage, etc.
The representative said for $200 you get 1) a cert 2) aT-shirt and 3) listed on a website as being "legit" according to the famous guy.
It's NOT a black belt and it's NOT an affiliation. It's just a certificate from the famous guy --something you can use for marketing or whatever.
He also said if HE (4th degree friend) could find other BBs who wanted certificates from the famous guy, he would get a taste. (Sort of a MLM type situation?)
Apparently this is a new thing that the famous guy and a couple of his brothers are doing.
Anyone heard of this or been approached...???
