Blue belt turns full time BJJ Athlete after submitting a black belt via heelhook during sparring session
He admits that he took advantage of the black belt that stopped sparring by pointing out to him that he was knee reaping: "I cannot believe that he took the time to explain that I was doing something illegal, I just heel hooked while he was still talking. I guess you should be ready at all time...just like a fight...right?".
Since this event that he described as pinnacle in his career, Jack has quit his job working at the local bank to concentrate on training full time: "I need to reach my full potential, I just realize that I had insane talent that I cannot waste it working an 8 to 5 job, I could make heaps of money fighting in nogi competition and doing seminars, I heard of this Aussie that went from purple to like ADCC competitor high level over two years, I even downloaded his DVD..it is the bomb..that how I learned to heel hook people, it has been my favorite submission...especially on the sparring partner that are not aware that I will attack them with this IBJJF illegall submission".
Jack has no remorse as he is convinced that he is a modern samurai and samurais do not follow IBJJF rules: "Back in the days, samurais will knee reap and heel hook all day every day..bro #porrada!"
Admittedly, his dad was not very supportive of his new choice but he got convinced after Jake showed him the instragam of the famous Gordan "the king" Ryan.
Dad was very impressed of the hespect that Gordan showed to his dad "big gord" but mostly he really liked the pictures of Ryan's sister.
Jack took the initiate to create a facebook athlete page which has reached 23 likes overnight: "I guess that things are getting pretty serious now I am an official athlete. I need a presence on social platform for my fans. I even reached out to Future Kimono for sponsorship. I heard heaps of sponsored athlete are getting free gear like one BJJ gi per year to rep their brand. I might even get a special edition with my name on it later on if I can increase my rep. who knows?" says the overnight born athlete.
Meanwhile, Jack also created an instragram account which consists of several pictures of bowl of acai, coconut water, water melon juice and motivational post such as "success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out"
I tried to contact the black belt for this side of the story.
Unfortunately, he did not want to elaborate any further on the incident.
I just heard that he might have purchased the DVDs from John Danaher: leg lock system.
We hope that only his self ego was injured and not his ACL & CCL.
In the month time, Jack will be moving to Auckland with the worst traffic and real estate problem in New Zealand to join a club that is affiliated to 5 times world time champion: "I know he only comes once every 2 years for a three hours seminar but to be the best, you have to train with the best. I will make the most of the 3 hours seminar by taking notes and drill the techniques later on. It is not just an occasion to take a picture with someone famous, you know!"
To conclude, the Jack's girlfriend did not approve of his new plan. Jack broke up with her and he described as a hater (just like the rest of them), no one should stop him to achieve his full potential and live the life of a full time of a pro athlete.
