Anyone have any insight on this? Obviously it works...Mike "The Prowler" Fowler was a Purple Belt last year...A Brown Belt at this years Beast of the East...and now a Black Belt!! Not too bad...2 High Belts in less than a year. My opinion is that Lloyd Irvin is using the American way of the "I want it now" approach. Otherwise he wouldn't be offering a Balck Belt in 3.5 years.
