    How did BJ Penn get his black belt in 3 years? I heard it generally takes 7-12 years to get a black belt in BJJ, how did he get it so quickly?

    Was it legitimate?

    I don't believe the guy ever worked, it may be he just trained all day every day with a high class trainer. Mind you, I don't train bjj so what do I know

    It is why he was nicknamed "The Prodigy".

    Quite legit

    His nickname is the prodigy for good reason

    He obviously put countless hours into his bjj training as well

    Definitely a high level grappler and my favourite fighter years ago

    Because he's a legend and one of the most naturally talented combat sports athletes ever. He won the Mundials soon after he got his black belt and had plenty of success beforehand. That should answer any questions about legitimacy.

    He's very flexible. Can do things that would otherwise take a lot of practice.

    Bj used to train with Ralph gracie . After he left the school, ralph called him a traitor motherfucker. I'm not sure if ralph called him that because he accepted a fight with a gracie or because he left the school.

    He lived and trained with Ralph Gracie multiple times a day for hours a day.
