Malachy Friedman, coach of Kimbo Slice, UFC’s Hector Urbina and Leo Kuntz was a black belt instructor at the “#1 SCHOOL FOR MMA TRAINING IN FLORIDA.” “In my opinion, American Top Team is the BEST MMA camp in the country!” – UFC Commentator and Podcast guru Joe Rogan. After training and coaching for over 8 years at American Top Team headquaters, in Coconut Creek, Florida; Malachy decided to bring the ever evolving Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to ALL STAR TOP TEAM – Charleston, SC. Malachy Friedman received his black belt under legend Ricardo Libório; widely regarded in Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) as the top black belt ever produced by Master Carlson Gracie, and an all around legend of the sport. Liborio was recently crowned 2015 ADCC Superfight Champion by defeating Mario Sperry. Liborio created two of the best teams in the world one being Brazilian Top Team and the other American Top Team, one of the MMA world’s biggest powerhouses. “There are probably four or five great teams that are capable of putting out world champions, and American Top Team is one of them.”- UFC President Dana White.
