Lloyd Irvin is a hero to me and easily one of the most inspirational people I've ever met. I don't just admire him for his natural gifts and amazing talent, but his forever unwavering committment to the belief in hard work. Because of committs and interests elsewhere, I haven't been able to committ myself to training to be on a path to black belt anytime soon. But the work ethic and "can-do" attitude he instills in his students helps me with so many of my other endeavors. As someone who saw superb leadership in the United States Marine Corps, I can say definitively Master Lloyd is a first-rate leader and world-class instructor.
So if you have a moment, watch the video and learn something about a very underrated coach and instructor. Much is made of Pat Miletich and Greg Jackson for very good and obvious reasons, but I believe Master Lloyd has all of their ability and then some. I know what he's done for me and what he's done for others.
And the title "master", by the way, is equivalent to "professor" in jiu-jitsu language, so leave the smart ass remarks about it at home. It's a title of distinction that all of his students freely give him out of reverance. In my book, he's earned it and I'm happy to call him that.
