Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for the latest episode of "fake BJJ black belt exposed".
Introducing Tearion Scott, the owner of Seminary Jiu Jitsu and the "Polygamist BJJ Brown Belt" (as dubbed by none other than McDojolife) who has decided to promote not one, but TWO of his wives to the esteemed rank of black belt.
Now, before you start congratulating these lucky ladies, let me remind you of a little something called "the proper practice in the world of BJJ."
According to the rules, only a black belt with at least two stripes on the red bar can promote students to black belt.
But hey, who needs rules when you're getting promoted by your husband, right?
Now, I know you're all thinking, "So what? It's just a belt, who cares?"
Let me tell you, faking belt rank in BJJ (or any martial art for that matter) is a sensitive and completely unacceptable practice.
Not only does it devalue the hard work and dedication of legitimate black belts, but it also puts other practitioners at risk when they're rolling with someone who may not have the proper skill level.
And let's not forget, it takes an average of 10 YEARS of training to earn a black belt in BJJ.
10 YEARS! So, when someone just "magically" earns one, it's a big red flag.
And if that wasn't sketchy enough, just a couple of days later, the wives decided to return the favor and promote the brown belt to black belt.
I'm sure you're all wondering the same thing I was: "How does one even begin to explain this on their resume?"
But wait, it gets even weirder.
Our dear Polygamist BJJ Brown Belt claims that he had actually received his black belt in 2018 from none other than God himself.
That's right, you heard me correctly.
According to him, he received his black belt from God in a dream.

The video has all the evidence you need to see just how sketchy this promotion truly is.
Before I sign off, please let me know in the comments if you come across any other promotions that make you say "wait, what?" in the world of BJJ.
