    When were you at BTT? Whats your name? A lot of guys pass through. I have a hard time remembering names if they arent a Blue Belt and up.

    Are you freaking serious?! "UFC victory...go through the past victors and see." You resurrect a thread after a year and half (which had ALREADY been resurrected from a THREE year hiatus) to basically tell us to "go do some research"? You can't throw ONE name out there? No? I'm supposed to go through 100+ UFC's, what...1000+ Pancrase fights? And poke around? And then go back and try to cross reference every single one of those fucking names to see if they bought a Tony C DVD or something? Yes, I want names. If you can't give them to us then go away. Your post is ridiculous.

    I think so. There is so much in fighting in the community it is ridiculous!

    Remember CACC gave birth to US folkstyle AND pro wrestling.

    I am afraid that alot of these guys keep the pro wrestling "shit talking" even though they are trying to push the sport as a legit grappling art.

    It really discredits the sport to a degree that not only are many individuals considered frauds, the style itself is considered BS by many. Just browse these forums to see what I mean.

    As far as Tony getting trashed, not sure what, how or why or even if...but at the least he was smart enough to get a video testimonial at some point from a respected pro wrestler with ties to Japan, legit CACC and Ad Santel.

    Agreed. If I could use ancient cultures to repsresent modern grappling communitites, I would say the Catch guys remind me of the Celts/Gauls. At their zenith, their influence spread far and wide, and they were known to be fierce warriors (and had many early victories), but disorganization and a lack of unity ultimately led to their downfall, while their neighbors progressed around them. Let's not let history repeat itself!

    Regarding Tony Cecchine: His lineage is thus, Henry Gehring --- > Stanley Radwan --- > Tony Cecchine --- > His students.

    Now stop fucking freaking out about lineage.

    I know of Augie Rodrigues. He is definatley one of the best grapplers in the mid-west and heads up Panda Grappling in Chicago. I believe h was in the RANKED top 5 or 10 if I remember.
    For Augie to seek out Tony that really does say alot. I know Shonie is/was one of Augie's instructors.

    My basis in sub-wrestling is catch style and I can verify that Tony know what he is doing from watching those tapes. He explaines the moves and the whys pretty well.

    Do I win the thread? Have I answered the questions you had about his students? Can we get over the bullshit about Tony now? Tony made me a doubter into not a believer but someone I can see is legit and tries as hard as he can in that one post. I'm sorry tony for my doubts.

    cecchine and matt furey have challenges to their credibility simply because they do not compete. doesn't mean they don't know what they're talking about or can't fight. think your local high school wrestling coach is no good cause none of his students are in the ufc or elite competition? it's ridiculous.

    I posted on this thread a long time ago, I'll reiterate: he might not be a bjj black belt equivalent ( I'd guess a purple belt + a lot of unorthodox technique) but his videos are excellent and it's clear that he is a humble, legit guy.
