    I believe there's a Grapplers Quest going down in Vegas that weekend. Perhaps that's it?

    Wagney Fabiani is a very good grappler. He is a member of Dede Pederneiras' Nova Uniao team, with the likes of Joao Roque, Vitor Shaolin, BJ Penn, Charuto Verissimo, Thalles Leite, John Lewis, Marc Laimon, Leo Santos and Robson Moura.

    Wagney is the winner of the Brazilian qualifier for this year's ADCC. He submitted Jani Lax in the opening round and lost to Rani Yahya of Rickson Gracie Jiujitsu by points (2-0, takedown) in the quarter finals.

    Maybe you can trade some high amplitude throws against some Flying armbars or flying triangles.

    That's a pretty ignorant post. The guy goes to a University to practice wrestling... obviously he's looking to sharpen his standing grappling technique. You beginning BJJ guys drive me nuts with how ignorant you are. BJJ is a terrific sport, but like every other MA, it has weaknesses. Its weakness is standing grappling. Good for him to cross train.

    I train with wagney and he's abu dhabi level world class fighter. Wagney goes to guelph for practice, not to learn dipshit.

    I'm not a "beginning bjj guy", 100$ says ill take you to school in jits/mma/wrestling.

    well there are world class level wrestlers at Guelph. Don't hate on someone for working on their game. We all want to get better, so roll with it.

    There's def great wrestlers at guelph altho i do prefer brock, but saying that you can teach an abu dhabi level/ TKO SLW champ is just ignorant... Wag's a great guy and im sure he'll show you some jits in his free time or you can jump by toronto bjj.

    I'd actually love to go down there one say and wrestle with you guys, I hear its great there...



    and shut up lobo,

    Brock is a great school, with lots of talented wrestlers, but they're pretty one dimensional in terms of style.
    Also between 70-85 kgs, Guelph is the deepest room in the country.
    And last thing, if you read my post, I never said I'd be able to teach him anything, I said I'd like for him to teach me in exchange for training at Guelph. And he obviously respects the club enough to come train with us. Whats more I don't think anyone gets as good as he is without being open to learning from whatever source he has access too.

    cross training is the only way to be a complete martial artist because all arts emphasize different things, there is nothing wrong with being a bb in one art and a beginer in another
