    De La Riva's academy is in Rio but he has associations worldwide. I have my own academy in the Greater Buffalo New York area. De La Riva comes twice a year for seminars. I am his New York state representative.

    I've been fortunate to train under two of the greatest instructors ever and yes we have lots of open guard instruction from De La Riva.

    I train under Dave Lamond, in Icho Yama Ryu Aiki-Jujutsu ( Judo, Miyama Ryu, Techonouchi-Ryu, and H2H blend and Daito Ryu) and Daito Ryu Kodo Kai. I train under him in Woodbridge,Va. I am a Nidan.
    While we have a strong grappling component, many of us crosstrasin as well, so things from BJJ, Sambo and catch go down on our mats as well.
    Bruce Chui, of Modern Arnis/Small Circle Jujitsu is a good freind of mine and we get together and train sometimes.
    I also have done some FMA with Proffessor Dave Wink's FullContact FMA/IMA group.

    I hear Pedro Saur is 30 miles up the road from me now, so I am contemplating going there once a week.

    I train under:

    Allan Manganello
    He is out of KY
    On November 4, 2006, Allan was promoted to Black Belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu by Pedro Sauer.
    In 1994, Allan began studying Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with Relson and Royce Gracie and became the first person to introduce Gracie (Brazilian) Jiu-Jitsu to Louisville. Relson and Royce told Allan about their brother Rickson whom Allan met and became good friends with, earning his Blue Belt from Rickson Gracie in 1996.

    he comes up to mass about 4 times a year.
    i have been working under him sence 2002.
    and another teacher name Chris out of Ma...

    Well, you show up he shows you a move or tells you the move. He typically then asks a series of questions outlining the primary benifits and purpose of the move.

    Then we pair off and do exchange drills. We start with the feed switch feed switch. We then move to the feed counter, switch, feed counter, switch type of drill.

    Each of these drills is done at 70 to 80% of speed and power.

    Then we move to the mount / escape drill.

    Then we move to grappling and practice a few moves for a while. Typically 5 one each side of a submission.


    After that we do full on 100% full contact sparing for standup and then move to full contact submission.

    This is our boxing class each class is different but I don't want too fully reproduce his format without his permission :)

    Needless to say they are not for the meek.

    I train at kore kombat fitness under team Yamasaki in Winchester, VA. I just started training a few months ago my husband is a blue belt and his instructor was looking for a girl to train with his wife because she didn't want to train with a bunch of guys so I have been doing it with just the two of us, but as long as I have a babysitter I go to the regular classes too try to get some more experience.
