Fabes -  If Henry is saying no, that's all I need to hear. Phone Post

According to the email from Rob who asked the academy owner who promoted Antonio, Antonio trained with Rickson for 8 years in the 90s. Does one simply train with Rickson for 8 years and completley slip under the radar? It seems unlikely, and Henry's answer helps to paint a better picture.

Anyone able to contact Rickson directly?

Limao was the main instructor at Rickson's academy in the 90's.

Manganello would know a brown belt under Rickson. He travels to the UK doing seminars now still.

Actually bro, the claim is specific to the Torrence academy before Rickson started his own school, so I am estimating on or before 1994-5.

I  know Rener and Ryron. But in reality, I'm not interested in spending time on this thread. But for anyone interested. Call the Academy, during business hours, and tell whoever answers you have a question regarding  someone who made claims about the Gracie Challenge. They'll probably put one of the brothers on the phone. Then they will ask Dad.

Forgive my ignorance, the question is specific to whether Antonio received his brown belt from Rickson in the 90s, how is it linked with any claims towards the Gracie Challenge? And I would call but im not USA bound :(

Pleeeeeeease drop a line for us Zipp? Nothing untoward or offensive, we just need to know if this guy is legit or not.

If the guy was at the Academy, then Rorion would remember him. I think Rickson was there in the 90's. 

Yeah, I got 10 vote downs today. Must be the RED circle on my back :-)

So, let me get this straight... this guy is claiming to be a brown belt since 1994-ish?? That's some serious sandbagging.

You would think that his instructor, the legendary Rickson Gracie, would have bumped him up a rank since then.
