He seems to have bought into the whole "Yoda of BJJ" persona that has been placed on him. I respect his knowledge, but not the way he communicates. It's pretentious, condescending, and unnecessarily complex. It's possible that he's just playing a character now. Internet fanboys are creating these eccentric gurus. I blame Joe Rogan. He's become the Oprah of potheads, and assorted rejects.
