Boogeyman Martinez Rants About Students Prioritizing Family & Work Over Training Time

Richie “Boogeyman” Martinez is a 10th planet black belt and brother of Geo “Freakahzoid” Martinez. He is the head of 10th planet San Diego. Boogeyman earned his black belt in 10th planet Jiu-Jitsu in a record 3 years and 11 months which makes him one of his fastest student to earn his BB ever (His brother Geo earned it in 3 years). Boogeyman is also a pro MMA fighter and is signed to Titan FC, and has been break dancing for about 15 years.

Boogeyman recently wrote an interesting post on the 10th planet San Diego, directed at his students.

There is a massive 50% OFF  SALE on Video Instructionals at BJJ Fanatics, which feature quality instructionals from Tom DeBlass, Craig Jones, Dean Lister, Bernardo Faria and many more….(Type in the code ‘BJJEE” and you will receive a further 10% discount on your purchases)

He stated even though they pay him, that he can’t consider as his students, people who don’t attend his 6 am or 6 pm classes at 10th Planet San Diego…
There are 5 different class times during the day at 10p San Diego, including the 6am and 6pm classes.
As a result, Boogeyman threatened that he wouldn’t promote people who wouldn’t attend those classes. He wants students to alter their personal life schedule so as to attend his classes.
This is quite inconsiderate for all those that have families and demanding jobs…

As a result, a series of memes making fun of Martinez’s announcement were created. This one was a joke translation of what he meant to say:

And this one (fake)
