    Hi guys, I am actually studying for my exams and I try also to keep training. Last day I was thinking about JJB/grappler guys who have diploma. For example I know that Jeff Monson has a Master in psychology, Saulo Ribeiro has a degree in law, i'm not sure but i think that robert drysdale has one in history. Do you have any further examples of guys who succeed to keep training at high level and keep studing/or working ?

    Tyrone Glover (First Paragon BJJ Blackbelt) has a law degree from University of Colorado and recently passed his bar exam.

    Mario Correa has a masters degree in mechanical engineering.

    I also thought Draculino had a law degree and was a lawyer for a short time.

    i think your right about Draculino. He did that april fools thing last year and talked about going back to Brazil to be a lawyer. not sure what his standing with US law is though but no big deal.

    I'm currently in law school full time (2nd year) and am still training BJJ regularly. In fact I got my purple belt while in law school towards the end of my first year.

    Of course, you said "at a high level" and that's not me.
