    Dan Racimo is a life-long white belt who does marketing and design to pay
    for his training.

    His contributions to OntheMat include marketing, media and print vendor
    management, and overall queasiness.

    He urged us to mention that he does NOT contribute to the music selection
    for OntheMat. We asked him to explain why but he mumbled and changed the
    subject quickly.

    His other training endeavors include cage matches with his wife and two sons
    at his home in Los Gatos, CA where his fighting record is 1-5-300.
