    Cade is often found OntheMat recording everything in sight. He has released his own best selling compilation of footage entitled "Grapplebook". When not training or filming, Cade is also one of Southern California`s most popular house Djs.

    Marc Laimon probably loves the sport of jiujitsu more than anyone we`ve ever encounted. The man literally breathes, eats and sleeps jiu-jitsu and has a personal tape collection that rivals the OntheMat library. (Rumor has it he will step off the mat long enough to school someone in Halo however).

    Marc has been contributing to OntheMat for sometime now, and is the editor of the best selling "ReMix" and "Tournament Tested Techniques" series. He is currently training his team at Cobra Kai Jiu jitsu in Las Vegas.
