A couple of years ago there was a trend of “catching” fake Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts. It looked like everyone wanted to catch their own fake BJJ black belt and film it. Do you think it’s a good thing? We most certainly think so!
On a few occasions, some guys didn’t want to stand by and watch it, so they took matters in their own hands. Exposing these would-be black belts is by far the best way to deal with them, because you don’t get caught up in legal consequences and thanks to the Internet, they won’t be able to pull their stunt anywhere else.
#1 Gracie Jiu Jitsu
Here’s what a facebook statement from Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy said:
“A Gracie University member, Mark McMahon, is misleading people to believe he is a 2nd degree jiu-jitsu black belt at HighKix Martial Arts in Latrobe, PA. Since it is very common for legitimate BJJ black belts to join Gracie University (and take the blue belt test) in pursuit of the street self-defense components of jiu-jitsu, before posting this, we needed to confirm that Mr. McMahon had not earned a legitimate black belt from another source.”
#2 Mike Palladino
Palladino, a BJJ brown belt at that time caught, Jay Queiroz pretending to be a black belt in Marlboro NY. Check a video of this comedian teaching guys techniques. It’s hilarious.
#3 Ruben Alvarez
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Ruben Alvarez confronts a person trying to pass as a Black. It was a bit weird that black belt wanted to attend fundamental class right?
#4 UFC Gym Texas
UfC Gym in Flowermund Texas did a huge mistake by hiring this guy to teach their BJJ classes. His name is Jeremy Varney and he was exposed by Justin Farwell. You can see in a video that this fake black belt acts like a kid when he got exposed.
At the end of the day these guys got what they deserve. But what’s with the rest of them? How many of these guys are still there in our neighbourhood pretending to be something that they’re not? How many of mislead kids are still training at those gym thinking they’re doing the right thing? Go out and expose these guys. We want this trend to come back as soon as possible.
