    From Gracie Mag, cool read. On a unrelated note, how cool would it be to have Keenan join the 50/50 team?

    Garry Tonon is a brown belt under Tom DeBlass in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He was invited to compete in The BJJ Kumite brown belt tournament at Team Lloyd Irvin in Camp Springs, Maryland the week of December 9-16. Here is the first part of the story, direct from Garry, as to how it panned out for him, what he expected and what unfolded for him:

    Wow- quite the mind fuck. Did you also have to give your email address? Or was all of this for consent to be filmed?

    I am picturing Seph's cat sitting on a plush throne and deigning to accept Gary's gifts. "You have performed adequately, human. You may pet me."

    Terrific set-up to this story by Gary. He's got a nice flow to his words and good descriptions of his thought process.
