    I have heard that there are three black belts in the state of Alabama, I was just curious if anyone knew who they were. I know that Puccio in B'Ham has one, I think Johnny Lee Smith in Cullman, don't know the other one.

    imagine if you had to roll with Elvis, that sweaty bastard would be dripping all over you. You'd probably have to tap for fear of drowning.

    There is a Gracie Barra affiliate in Huntsville owned by a blue belt, and they had a black belt come in to take over. He wasn't at the last tournament we had, so I'm not sure if he is still with them. It's a Helio Soneca school and I'm sure he visits every now and then. Their website is here.
    I train under Puccio by the way, if you have any questions.

    Yep July 19th, it's a no-gi tourney. I'm not sure if I'll get to compete this time, but we'll have a gi tourney in a few months so it's all good.
