Important – Read the Admin reply in the comments below.
Being that there was an immediate and overwhelming response, as can be documented in the comments below, concerning this article what we did was leave it up to the readers as to the disposition of this post. They voted and so we are removing it. This is the first time we have decided to exercise our right to edit or delete a post. We did this because it became obvious that Mr. Arel is a legitimate Jiu Jitsu blackbelt and he was vouched for by other reputable Jiu Jitsu experts. The writer had a concern and their concern with respect to Mr. Arel was found unwarranted. We left the post and its fate to our readers. The readers voted to remove it unanimously. The comments will remain at this time that were posted as this clears Mr. Arel’s and Mr. Togno’s name and left a record of good things said on their behalf. Thank you to all who had a part in this and remained professional.

Additional information as of 3/14/2013. A video has surfaced of Roberto Gordo Correa in 2012 talking of or about his relationship and training with Mr. Arel. In this video he specifically states that Jeremy was a purple belt when he started with him in Brazil and then earned his brown belt. He then went back to America and then later returned to Brazil and earned his black belt same as his brown belt under Mr. Correa. Mr. Correa and his background are unquestionable in Jiu Jitsu. This further solidifies his reputation as an outstanding member of the Brazilian jiu jitsu community. The video can be seen here: http://youtu.be/U8NOx9RlNVE
