Nope he clearly says that he did not sell the gym
Heard about "issues" months ago, so I wouldn't be surprised if Kurt hadn't already gotten started on the move awhile ago.
The GB rumor comes from one of the new black belts being a former GB black belt. He did switch teams to Ralph Gracie And for personal reasons that can be found on Facebook if you really wanted to find out. No need to speculate.
Didnt kurt say that he was fired out of the blue? That there was no warning. Well it seems that ralphs story is supported by the timing of opening the school. I'm not saying one cant find a location, get most of the interior done, get all of the paperwork done, get the website set up quickly. Usually it takes longer.
I "heard" (meaning I can in no way confirm it) that months ago, there were changes made concerning the running of the school and what other BB instructors were or were not able to do. If what I heard was true, then I can see an adult wanting to not deal with it and start looking for an out. Who knows though.
Don't have a side, never met either of them, but people I know have trained with them a lot and have been on good terms with them.
It all depends on whar he said. I cant find the original statement. It sounded like he claimed that he was fired out of the blue.
If we can find his original statement and he says he was fired without warning then I would put more credibility to Ralph's story. Again, one can open up a brand new school without any prep time. It is very unlikely though.
Oh yeah, I'm not defending his "fired out of the blue" statement. In fact, I'd be more inclined to say that's all bullshit and he read the writing on the wall around late winter early spring of this year and he started talking to friends about what was going on. Made his decision then and started to look for a place.
So you think it was premeditated and Ralph's story is true?
I haven't seen where any details of the changes have been made public, but if what I heard was true then I know me personally, I would have started finding a way out.
Jerry coming from Gracie Barra is the new instructor.
Any more details on this yet? Seems like a sad situation all round.
