Also, a blue belt is a beginner belt, about 6 months to a year to get, and if he trained at a crap school, well, there goes that. Good to know you had a "skirmish" (we call it a roll) and tried your hardest to beat some guy up and now pat yourself on the back. We like guys like you at our place, I'm no black belt, never claimed to be, just a good purple belt. I wasn't bragging, just giving you my experience with off duty cops which is a lot of experience.
Open invitation to come up to the north east and get some mat time. Let's see how it works out for you. Oh, and with an average of 8 years to get a BB in BJJ, real Gracie BJJ, the stuff the army uses, I think you're speaking from ignorance when you say they're a dime a dozen.
At the time The Alliance was the only MMA school in my area, but I also trained submission grappling, but it wasn't the magical "Brazilian" style made famous by the mystical Gracies.
How is Henzo by the way, still claiming he has 400 wins without a defeat and still hasn't answered the 20 plus legitimate fighters that have called him out?
BJJ Black Belts? Shall I start to name all the guys that "claim" to have "earned" one and still suck on the mat? Let's just start with Vitor Gracie. Oh wait, that was only his name early on when he was allegedly "adopted" by the all mighty Gracies, he fights now under the name Vitor Belfort and he has (3) submissions in over 30 fights. Yeah, there is a black belt if ever I have seen one. *yawn*
I don't care what your experience is, or where you train or what words you want to throw around, disarming the cops is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.
What is going to magically happen to crime when your at the dojo in your GI and don't have your sidearm? Or when you are sleeping? Or, oh I don't know, WORKING a real job?
All that sh1t is just going to pause for you to get back to crime fighting mode after a quick change in the mall bathroom into your Superman Underroos and tacticool gear?
You encountered the smallest percentile of cops and can speak for ALL of them to be worthless and should be disarmed.
And to think Nero was the most arrogant man I had ever read words from.
