He owns and runs the Gelinas Academy of Mixed Martial Arts (GAMMA), also known as the Cultural Martial Arts Academy [1]. He is one of the founding Dog Brothers as well as one of the founders of the Brazilian Top Team Canada network of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academies in Canada. Gelinas began his training in a style of karate known as Chito Ryu at the age of 14 [2]. Since then he has trained in many styles including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kali, Muay Thai, Judo, Kempo, Kajukenbo, Jun Fan-Jeet kune do, Silat, and Capoeira. He obtained black belts in Kempo (1973) and Kajukenbo (1975) [2]. In the 1980's he received a Muay Thai instructor credential under Tom Harink

There was a sound problem with the first one.  Looks like they corrected the sound and re-posted it.

The worse thing about seeing yourself on these things is realizing how much you don't look like what you think you look like.

Thanks for posting the link Professor. First time I have seen this piece.
