Well I guess the Gracie franchise would rather risk tarnishing its name then missing out on a few $.

This Dojo is only capable of rewarding blue belts and no higher rank. The kid here is qualified to teach their combatives course, and nothing more. Considering the Gracies will award a blue belt based on learning online and submitting a video of yourself performing the basics, I think everyone is blowing this a bit out of proportion. Good for the kid on being an entrepreneur. No doubt his Dojo would fail if there were any better alternatives in the area.
