I'll certainly be there to learn and hopefully grab a little media time too. I am particularly fascinated with his lineage - coming from the Franca/Fadda side of BJJ - one of the few (if not the only) non-Gracie to learn jiu jitsu from Maeda and who helped propagate the sport throughout the country with his own schools.

Really interested in what you can find out about the difference between his style/emphasis of BJJ as compared to the more widely spread Gracie stuff. Can't say I know much about it, but I'm keen to learn!
