NAGA Comments: 

Anthony Argyros is what NAGA is all about. He is a dedicated grappler who puts it all out there when he gets on the mats. The enthusiasm and genuine love he shows for the sport is immediately apparent when you speak with him or compete against him.

It would be an honor for either Kipp or Joe to grapple Anthony in 10 years.
