    I had a friend from NY come down to visit and train with us for a few days at Alan Belcher MMA Club. he's a real good black belt under Joe D'Arce and one of the head instructors at Vamos Mixed Martial Arts in New York, but I thought a fun way to introduce him to my class would be to slap him in a white belt and have him talking a little bit about how kung fu grappling is basically the same as BJJ. Everyone was ignoring him until we started doing some live training, then it got fun. Here is Alex at my gym pretending to be an annoying know it all new student with an 8-month kung fu background, enjoy the clip :icon_lol:

    The picture below shows Alex at Marcelo Garcia's 2011 ADCC training camp (in the black gi):

    Some of the best stuff wasn't caught on film. Alan Belcher was on the next floor and told all the students that our film guy was getting footage for a road to competition video he wants to put together, so camera guy couldn't make it too obvious. One of the purple belts here actually grabbed his iphone and managed to find Alex on google before the class was over. It was a fun gag.

    Extremely well done.

    The concept, music, and camera work were all on point. Very funny stuff.

    These kind of pranks isn't really funny in my opinion. Making others feel frustrated and stupid.

    Looks like these guys had a good laugh, and maybe some of them learned something about themselves as bjj practitioners as well.
