Ricardo Almeida on Fraudulent Teachers
Just like his teacher, Renzo Gracie, I have a ton of admiration and respect for
. For those of you unaware, Ricardo is a 3rd degree black belt under Renzo Gracie and former MMA fighter:
Here are some words of wisdom he shared on his site the other day and I couldn't agree more!
"Instructors who don’t train with their students are a fraud.
A lot of the time it’s because they’re scared of getting subbed in front of the group.
The day I get scared of getting subbed I’ll stop teaching.
(L-R) John Danaher, Gene Dunn, Renzo Gracie,
Ricardo Almeida, Matt Serra
And I hate tapping out!
It’s not because I’ll think I’m worse if I lose a match or sparring session.
It’s because I’m a perfectionist, and I’m really bothered by technical blunders.
Being a black belt has nothing to do with invincibility; it has to do with the art of improving on what we do and persevering in the midst of adversity."
