    I signed up on mginaction.com, and I was watching one of the rolling sessions, I think it was labeled as July 2010 no-gi. Marcelo was rolling with this blonde kid, and I was very surprised by how well he was doing. I know they were just rolling and Marcelo was being nice, but still. Anyone know who this guy is? Just curious.

    No, it isn't Ben Aspren or however you say his name. It was somebody else. The guy did better than Ben.

    I am also not a member, and while he does not have blond hair but is brown, i know josh waitzkin trains under him a lot and does pretty well for himself.

    even if it's not him, the guy is an interesting read. world champion chess player at a real young age as well as a champion in "slap hands". he's featured in sam sheridan's "the fighters mind".

    Nope. I am pretty sure that isn't him either. I guess Marcelo just has a bunch of really good guys training under him. I was just impressed because, though he did get tapped a few times, he was able to avoid a sweep out of the x guard and I think even countered Marcelo's guillotine once.

    Is it a tall, skinny kid with spiked hair? If it is, we called him Crazy Horse, he used to roll at BlitzCenter with Marcos Santos before Marcos & Marcelo combined schools.

    He was tall and skinny. His hair was short but not spiked. Could be him...idk.

    Someone showed me the videos, and I'm pretty sure you're talking Alex Vamos. He's a black Belt under Joe D'Arce, but I don't think he's a natural blond,lol.

    Yes. I think that is him. Looks like him. He seems to be a pretty good talent.

    He dyed his hair blond around the time for Worlds.

    Yeah, he's very good. New black belt but had a lot of competition success at each rank. he's got an academy on long island with his brother, and i have a few friends that train there. he's fun to watch too:
