    Just found this on the internet. If this has been posted before, i apologize.

    http://www.geocities.com/global_training_report/mehdi.htm

    I had passed by the Mehdi Academia de Judo on R. Visconde de Piraja 411 in Ipanema more times than I could count. Sylvio Behring recommended that I meet Mehdi. So did many other people.

    Old judo guys like that are scary...especially if they have respect and discipline...with the Gracies or Mike Tyson you can kind of tell your gonna get your ass beat into the ground...with older judo guys like that you would figure you could just come up and steal their hemmorhoid donut...but then your flipped upside down and spiked on your head before you can even tell them your name
