Just saw on the Gracie mag Fb page. Anyone got any news as to why?
States personal issues?
Wishing Toko the best! Be interesting to see who will coach him now...
Hope he finds a good mentor. Seems like the kind of guy that could go off the rails very easily.
I'm sad to see him leave BTT. Murilo was a mentor to him. I am sure it was not an easy decision. Wish Toko the best.
Well, they can't exactly call him a creonte, can they?
He should hook up with terere
Where is he going?
Nova Uniao would be cool for him. I don't know if they have guys his size though...
Is Bustamante still there?

Fuck you ^
bustamante IS BTT, so i would assume so...
Just someone who I train with mentioned he'd heard Bustamante had left. Didn't mention a source though.
Cawsie77, Murilo Bustamante is BTT. He owns BTT, so no, unless he sells BTT....
"Fuck you ^"
Was he wrong?
TV - Cawsie77, Murilo Bustamante is BTT. He owns BTT, so no, unless he sells BTT....
That's what I said. But the lad was insistent? Maybe he's read something wrong somewhere.
Nobody turned on anyone, you dont know the teams business and dont know the story behind his departure. He wasnt kicked or left on bad terms.
As far as the original comment, it baffels me that AMERICANS who train under the Carlson banner insist on throwing mud at BTT for something that happened 14 years ago, and that had nothing to do with them, and in all probability didn't train jiu jitsu at the time, let alone under Carlson himself. He is held in the highest regard at BTT. He is the Grand Master and is respected as such. My coach trained at his school his whole life.
Furthermore if anyone is in town for tournaments feel free to drop by and voice your opinion on the subject.
