    Is this the guy who has been doing BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU for 1 year, but did a bunch of other non-brazilian jiu jitsu for much longer?

    It would be much like Marc Kompanyets who won the Mundials at blue belt after training about a year. Of course...he also had a black belt in Judo, but if you don't mention that the accomplishment sounds much better.

    the judo in brazil is also alot more hardcore in Brazil and the groundwork is bound to be better than the average judokas turtle and hide strategy.
