Great description, you know any guy blue or above who has been taught by someone with the surname "Gracie", especially Royce, is going to be worth his weight in gold
in terms of teaching BJJ, compared with 80% of people out there, who have a black belt, under a lot lesser skilled instructors.
Remember,it's not what you got it's how you use it,lol
