John`s purple wasn`t the only belt awarded by Island Top Team`s head instructor during his recent visit to Toronto. Samir Seif, who invited Professor Robert to teach a seminar at his club, is a lifelong martial artist, and though he has been grappling in various forms for nearly 2 decades, had never pursued official rank in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu... until now.
