Like "Oh hey, can I get a picture with you, a renowned X degree black belt, so it looks like we trained together, even though I just met you?"
Don't sweat that kinda stuff, bro. I know the feeling of people getting starstruck around great instructors. I get to train with a fourth degree blackbelt a couple of times a week, but I get starstruck around guys I look up to. Royler's seminar was pretty rough for that.

Still, hopefully you'll get to work with Draculinho at some point. The guy is a legend.

Also, not a bad run at the tournament. Keep working hard. You're game is looking great.
