    So I was at the Worlds. I learned a lot and I mean a lot from everyone, and the stuff I saw made me love the art, not just the sport of Jiu Jitsu, so much more. One thing that will always bug me though, is the guy that didn't say excuse me, when he bumped in to Rickson. I'm still debating what that was all about. This leads me to an important question in regards to martial arts etiquette. Is it me, or is doing what that guy did, regardless of what school they are from, an absolutely horrendous act of disprect. Or has the alliance/gracie rivalry come to this and we should accept it? To me it's just huge amount of disrespect.

    maybe he was dumbfounded and didn't know what to say?

    I wouldn't look too far into this... maybe if the man bumped into Rickson and then proceeded to enter a stare down...

    oh shit, you're right. we have fallen down on the job, as no one else brought up what a crazy show of disrespect that act was. the house of rickson has been shamed and now there must be action. this injustice cannot stand any longer. why don't you head up a posse and go find those scoundrels. teach them the meaning of r-e-s-p-e-c-t. now to make sure i cover all my cliches, get strapped and bust a cap in his ass.

    Are you talking about Sergio Moares' camp after he tapped Kron?

    if i bump into strangers on the street i dont apologize to them

    first of all because im not some pussy ass bitch who walks around apologizing to everyone in my life

    secondly because i dont walk around apologizing to everyone in my life

    and thirdly because its usually their fault for bumping into me, i ignore them

    Don't you know the legendary events that followed!!!?!?!?!?!?!?


    that night Rickson went to the Alliance Temple and demanded the Arm of the man who bumped into him at the tournament. When Jacare kindly explained he couldn't give Rickson the mans arm and offered 1,000 apologies Rickson Armbarred the Entire Alliance team to DEATH! And thus began the Legend of Rickson Gracie and the Five Finger Armbar Exploding Heart Technique.


    true story

    dude, they were celebrating. he probably didn't even know if that was rickson. and if he did who cares. Do you think Rickson really cares that that guy didn't say excuse me??? Fuck No!

    here's a thought... look where you are going and you won't have to apologize to anyone

    LOL. True story: a man in Tokyo abused his wife by applying an armbar her while drunk. She ended up suffering internal injuries to her shoulder and died as a result.
