    In Europe?

    Leo Negao, Raphael Haubert, Roger Brooking, Marcos Flexa, Fabricio Werdum, Roger Gracie, Braulio Estima, Carlos Lemos Jr, the Sukata brothers and Nelson Solari all live in Europe. I am sure there are a few more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

    Creepy moment the other day involving my friend, myself and two girls that looked older than they were. Under 18 is still not an adult in my opinion.

    Oh yeah, Eduardo and Xande at BTT London are black belts also.

    Relax, my friend, 16 is perfectly legal in most states. (Yes this is all I have to contribute to the thread)

    According to bjj.org, there are approx. 952 BB of various degrees. This is of course, not an exhaustive list.

    I am English. 16 is not the issue. 14 year olds are. 14 year olds that look like 20 year olds. I swear to Christ, girls are dressing like they are older more and more. What's ironic is older women try to look as young as possible. No woman wants to look or act their age.

    Never will I understand women. I think the problem is we're trying to apply logic to the equation and logic simply has no part in any understanding of womens behaviour.

    Any man who says he understands women is either deluded, gay or WAS a woman before he became a man.
