    I think the kaobon guys are LL. But marcelo brigadeiro isn't over here anymore teaching, u think he went back to Brazil. From what I know of chatting to brig when I interviewed him and following his blog....mark scanlon is the highest ranked lutador in UK at the moment. But I could be wrong.

    I have trained at Kaobon with Brig, he's been back in Brazil for a while now but Luis Besouro Jnr and Juliano Ninja Pin have been over in the UK teaching whilest he has been away. Paul Sass, Terry Etim and Mark Scanlon have also been covering the classes all of whown are great coaches.

    That's my understanding, too. I noticed a few chaps gym-hopping when Briga left (*cough* belt-hunters *cough*), but there has been no drop in the quality of coaching. Terry seems to do most of the classes now, and his coaching is excellent (as is Scanno's, Sass's etc.). Of course people will be missing Briga - he's not just a top coach, he's a really genuine fella too - but the senior lads in the gym are keeping the LL spirit alive and well.
