*tompkins team. Everyone super humble and friendly, great guys. Horodecki is a savage though he has a mean streak hahaha, gotta watch out with him. 
 

Also shout out to Malcolm Gordon. He's a wicked fighter, flyweight, 12-3, #1 flyweight in Canada. Has some wicked Kimura set ups from Rowan Cunningham's system and overall just slick. 
 

I did a few rounds of wall/cage wrestling to help him prep for a fight, they just pulled me out of class and asked me to try to drag him down for a couple 5 minute rounds. I outweigh the guy by like 40 pounds and he was 5 steps ahead the whole time. He's a G!

I loved this team back in the day! Sucks Thompkins died way too young.

They were the best! Just not the same without him but it is what it is. RIP Tompkins, legends never die! 
 

also shout out to Chris Clements as well! Great coaching, simple savage and effective.

 

and Jesse Gough, crushing the BJJ coaching there now, such a good dude. 
 

So good for a small team out of London ON

I never got to train with Hominick, but I saw him training at the gym once. He was unbelievably fast. I had no clue who he was at the time.

I've trained with a lot of great MMA and BJJ peeps including some BJJ legends.

 

Lets see but biggest name?

Probably Rickson back in 98. For MMA would likely be BJ Penn or Robbie Lawler. I've been fortunate to train with a lot of notable MMA fighters and BJJ greats only because IMHO, it was really a small circle back then, Now they are big names..back then if you trained with them people would say that's pretty kool, nowadays they say "No way! You trained with Royler Gracie?" Or Royce? 

Probably cause I'm getting pretty old.

Not really "trained with" but did a seminar with Rob Kaman. Used to read about him in the martial arts magazines when I was a kid and even at over 40 I was totally in awe meeting my childhood idle. He was a really nice guy and taught some great stuff

 

trained at same gym as saenchai in Thailand and that was awesome too.
