Assuming I compete, there's going to be some ill feelings when I compete against my former teammates.
Am I making much ado about nothing?
No. You are right.
There is no sport quite like it within martial arts I don't think...
I'm Checkmat and if I was told about a great seminar at the GB club with Rickson I wouldn't go out of respect.
Also you have to look at the lineage of your instructor and think are you proud of that? If not you are in the wrong place.
