Who, the Argentinian's?
I got my belt off e-bay for £3.99.
With regards the seminar if it were closer I would pay £45 to attend a 3 hour session run by Ralek.
Lol Awesome post
I would not just be proud of WW2.
The mighty Roman Empire was the most powerful in the world. Julius Caesar notes that our Druids and warlords were always coming over to mainland Europe and causing...
Why is this obvious?
In an international competition I would always support the British fighter. My loyalty to my country and my friends is greater than my loyalty to Carlos Gracie Jr, who I have...
Our Judo / BJJ club always has membership spikes in September and January (i.e. after summer and winter holidays)
When I was training judo in Japan a few years back it was the norm to do 2-3 hour randori sessions (sparring). This forced you to do randori very lightly and rely on pure technique. If you used any...
In MMA the value of a winning record all depends on who you fought. I know guys who fight amateur and have got their wins into double digits by fighting numpties.
lol excellent I agree
When the late Helio Gracie reached his final days he was unable to roll anymore due to illness. They should have demoted him to white belt!!
Or may demotions are bull sh*t??
At the moment you are still a youngster who has only fought five times under amateur rules. Congratulations on the wins. However, I would advise that you continue to learn your trade and act with...
It depends upon what you want. If you want to learn BJJ then go to Gracie Barra Birmingham. If not then no.
I've not heard of this group before. Are they a new governing body for MMA?
In my own personal experience I have found that the best base from which kids learn grappling is gymnastics. Every child who has walked into my Judo club with a Gymnastics background has picked up...
With regards self defence Wrestling is obviously much much better than BJJ.
I am going to quit BJJ and Judo and take up wrestling. That is if I can't find a club that teaches the secret art of...
The rules state the following:
So dirty and smelly people get disqualified as they step onto the mat!
At BJA and BJC events hygiene should be checked at gi control. If you have long finger...
My guys have to wear flip flops (or at least trainers) off the mat. If I see someone with dirty feet I will make them go and wash them (only happens about once per year). I have even made one of my...
I don't think that the Gracie University system is completely without merit. The guys will be learning something and able to perform techniques with a degree of competence. I just don't think that...
I don't need to roll with Roger Gracie to tell that he is very good.
I agree with you that rolling with a person is a very good way of assessing them. However, personally, I believe that...
No time limits is great until you have a couple of epic stale mate that result in the fighters, fans and officials still being at the venue well into the late evening.
Tap or give away position if you find your neck under pressure. There is no point getting injured in training.
It is now finally against the IBJJF rules and is cheating. Cheats lack honour and integrity and have no place in BJJ.
Eduard Folayang vs. A Sol Kwon was a great fight. Some good take downs too.
