Awesome stories, as many have said before, you really should write a book, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. So I take it this guy is/could be a former member of the SAS?
Is this stuff fact or fiction? Either way it's good stuff!!
LOL! He is real, its just his writing style that is so engaging that it made you to question it.

how the fuck does he manage to make us wait so long for the fight! Simon, you should write a soap!
As we paired off to pactise the technique,Brett the English guy introduced me to a guy who i could
practise with.He instantly reminded me of 'Jay the Animal' from Carlson's London.Same mad look
in the eyes,friendly but tough demeanor.There was a difference though.Jay The Animal is about
5ft 6inches and weighs about 95 kilos.Built like a small gorilla from lifting steel all day every day
in his job as a welder.Blokes like this don't look like bodybuilders,they get shaped differently
from lifting awkward bits of metal up stair cases and stuff.They look more like primates as i've
mentioned.Well this partner of mine was built just like Jay with no neck,short legs,long arms and
a barrel for a chest but he wasn'r 5ft 6 and 95 kilos,he was 5ft 10 and 120 kilos.
Blimey,a freak of nature i thought and wondered how much damage he did in sparring as he worked
his way through the class.He was a lovely fella though,very humble,asking me questions.He wanted to
know the secret of my guillotine which i shared with him.Just feeling his strength filled me with
anticipation for later.
The next technique Rey showed was a lovely shin grab from bottom half guard that allowed you to post your
other hand on the ground and pull your trapped leg out and take the top of turtle position.Nice.
The third and final technique was how to turn the attempted shin grab into a kimura if your opponent
tried to pull out of the position,and inturn how to change the kimura into a wrist lock.Very slick stuff.
Great read have fun with my brothers

It was time to spar so i politely waited to see if Rey would pair me up.He didn't and i watched as various people asked each other
if they'd like to roll.No one asked me so i prepared to watch the first round.The 2 fighters i was most interested in were 'The Fridge'
and the highly ranked student whose grade i didn't know.The Fridge was about 6ft 2 and 275 pounds (130 kilos) and he wasn't fat.
The other guy whose place i had taken in the warm up was perhaps 6ft 2inches and about 95 kilos.I was amazed when they started
rolling.The fridge was moving in an exceptionally athletic way for such a big guy and was obviously very skilled at BJJ.
But the other guy was a technical wizard.Using pure skill he effortlessly answered every attack by The Fridge and punished every mistake
the big guy made.This was superb jiu jitsu and i was worried.He certainly had the skills to give most high level opponents fits.
I asked Hereford Brett what belt level this guy was.His answer didn't surprise me- "Brown Belt 4 stripe"
