- John Smith: perhaps someone only the wrestling community would know. My favourite American freestyle wrestler - current USA coach. Amazing competitive record and all-round takedown genius.
- Richard Norton: one of the best martial artists on the planet. All-round paragon of excellence - the person who taught me never to accept mediocrity. An amazingly proficient martial artist.
|John Smith 2x Olympian / 4x world champ|
-David Meyer: a great martial artist whose moral compass is set to true north. Once he came to realize that there was a better and more complete style of Jiu Jitsu down the road, he not only closed his school but suggested that all his students go and join up. David is an inspirational being.
