regarding your post i knew a guy where i live who opened up his own style in a sports club. He called it "Nin Budo" & wore a red & black belt giving himself high status. I spoke to a friend of his who was a master of Vo Vi Nam & even he joked with me about his friends own style & master staus.one of their black belt instructors is being accused of raping a minor.
Did you watch the whole video? Because as soon as the dude narrating that video compared the two clips, he made the same exact point I bolded, very effectively imho. And then pointed out that the sprinter would also survive a SD situation where running away was involved. And that heavier dudes (and women for sure) that train well and can manage their weight can dominate sports like Judo and jiujitsu.I have seen the first video before. She was struggling. But comparing these two videos and the people in them is about as far apart as you can get. One appears to be an average/casual possible beginner. The other, an elite athlete. It is just not a logical comparison. I am sure you can find plenty of videos with 'overweight' black belts holding their own.
The lady in the first video does appear bad, maybe very bad but I do not have enough data to make that decision and I am not going to cherry-pick a video to try and make a point. We have no idea what the outcome of that testing or competition was nor the ladies background or how much she may have improved.
Sometimes a visual like the video you cherrypicked just does not tell the story.
Bullfrog? Hmmm tasty!athletic abilities are impaired look at any fat fighter & see how they gas out. now a big fat blob might throw a lucky punch but a lighter fitter athlete will in my opinion 99% win.
be honest if you walk into a new dojo (and this is the thread subject) & the "Master" looks like a bullfrog what will be your first thoughts? be honest.
this is why i mentioned a big belly. I see overweight black belts( more so in the states ) who can´t do techniques like a young fitter man so their movements are sometimes adapted for their lack of mobility & fitness.
This guys puts it perfectly..
ConclusionYoung handball players categorized as obese according to %BF exhibited lower scores in basic physical performance tests. In more detail, increased %BF values seemed to negatively impact running performance, vertical jump, and aerobic capacity after adjusting for body height and mass.
The Associations Between Physical Performance and Anthropometric Characteristics in Obese and Non-obese Schoolchild Handball PlayersThis study investigated the relationship of body fat and fitness measures in schoolchild handball players.

This was not that person.
Now, I'm not going to say it's nice to call people fat, and I never like to judge other people's performance in any video.
But he's asking, if that's a black belt, attempting to show a whole room of people (and by extension the entire internet)...what exactly?
Now, if she goes and starts a school as a black belt, it's not "fake" per se assuming she was granted it by whomever she claims. If she starts making other deceptive claims, this video...could become a big problem. Especially where people's money is involved. If I had kids and sent them to her school, even signing a contract for lessons, and then somebody showed me this...my money's coming back.
This is why successful scammers like Ashida Kim never, ever do this stuff on camera, btw. It's all behind the Inner Door.
