I wasn't quick enough either roper.

I guess that someone was slagging off how he performed. Which division did he compete in?

There is nothing on google on this guy. Sure, you can have an off day in competition at any level.

Where's the begrudgery? And who said he was a black belt? Is he?

I officiated at his group and it was a tough one, all draws. Not even a hint of a submission in most fights.

well its all a bit fishy to me if he is claiming hes a BB, Black belts dont have "off days" dont get me wrong Eoin and Tom have great Jiu jitsu and are tough competitors but ive rolled with Black belts and its another league, anyone thats rolled with JK can see this, tbh it pisses me off because JK, myself, Andy Ryan, Owen roddy, and everyone else out there with blues purples and black belts have put alot of time and effort and sacrifice into achieving our grades, then some guy claims hes a Black Belt and comes 4th in his division!?!?

Irish Bedgrudgery?????????

yeah thats it

There was no claim made by him to me or any officials at the competition that he was a black belt. There was a rumour and someone attached this to his name.

He told myself when he registered he was training two years. Is this too short a time to begin teaching/coaching? Well I started coaching in UCD after about 4-5 months training, and I'm fairly sure JK started showing people what he learnt the day after he started zhoo zhitsu so should we stop coaching?

On the day he came up to me and said that he had only been training 2 years and didn’t think he should be in the advanced division.

He seemed sincere, so maybe it is someone else who is trying to advertise him as a black belt?. He seemed genuine and was enquiring about the next few competitions so im sure we'll see more of him in the future.

The case of the suspected black belt has been resolved. It was just a really, really, really, really, really, really dark blue belt.
