Dan Camarillo on his Nickname:
Just about everyone at the Ralph Gracie’s had a nickname. It took me a while before someone gave me one.
This is actually where I got my nickname, “ARMHUNTER”. I was training hard with a friend of mine, getting ready for the JiuJitsu Nationals. During one of our training sessions I armlocked him a few times, he turned to me and said, “Dang, its like you’re hunting the arm.” Then he said, “That is what we should call you, Armhunter.” I love the name, infact I have won about 90% of my matches by arm bar.
