    Rickson has been living in Brazil for most of the last 3 years. He hasn't been in the academy more than a few times during that period, to my knowledge, and so it's not surprising if he doesn't know some or many of the current students. He has always been extremely gracious about giving pics, shaking hands, etc., whenever he's in public.

    Haha that story about Rickson is pretty funny. Rickson probably has a main instructor there and doesn't teach all the classes so he didn't recognize the dude.

    his left hand i that pic has a very gorilla like quality to it, as in if he gets you in it, you aren't getting out.

    speaking of grip, i hear todd was dq'ed for a unfair advantage due to his phenomenal grip power.

    rolls died in 1982.
    he reincarnated as kron in 1988.

    Agreed - it's like a paler version of "Dartanian" from 3 Musketeers or something. Not a good fit for him.
