Insert whiny message
That's very unfortunate. How did it happen? But I wouldn't give up. You can still keep learning without sparring: watch videos, train technique, work with a grappling dummy till things heal. In the end it's all self defense which is something that will always be useful to you so there is no reason to stop learning and training.

1 time someone jumped guard on my knee.. and now i doing a overhook toss..
i wanted to say yes to a fight again.. get some respect back.. and now its all gone.. so many hours of therapy.
im just very pissed. i wont be on here for a while.
thanks for the nice words.
I know the feeling, I've done mine twice now and I'm left with a very unstable knee. i acknowledge that there are some things I can't do anymore but it's more important to me in the long term to be able to train and teach what i know than to be able to compete now. At times like this it's easy to question whether it's worth carrying on with the training but i believe it's such an important thing in my life and to my sense of who I am that it's worth continuing even if i can no longer train how i would want to.
Best of luck and keep positive

Frank Shamrock has fought several times with no acl or mcl, it can be done. Of course take some time to heal your acl up, but dont let an injury stop your training.
Hey man, that really sucks. I had all last year off training basically, it was a right shitter at times... felt like I would never heal and never train properly again.
Hope you recover quickly, don't lose the fight man, never give up!
