    i ttt'd the thread on sherdog and resisted the temptation to suggest you could post one of the funny videos of people in your gym doing weird stuff and getting annihilated for fun.

    Southside is not a Dinky Ninjas gym. Has some affiliation with the griphouse (guy who trained there opened it) and has some DNFT coaches coaching there Guy, Dean and danny .

    I want sure on this thanks for clearing up. Have trained there and its a decent gym with brilliant coaches dean, danny,guy, kenny etc its closer to me than actual griphouse in possil. Im just training cos I enjoy it not to be a fighter or to compete in anything. Have trained at griphouse in possil and before that when it was in maryhill really decent guys coaching and training just wish I had time to train enough toget to a level where I could have competed but never really had the time. Good to see you guys getting the recognition u deserve now.

    Cool article .

    "Dinky" as in were the name originated,was associated with a territorial gang from the area in which we trained back early 2001+

    We were labelled by a friend of a training partner as wee ninjas from the Dinky.

    I thought it must of came from Dumbarton. I was through there recently visiting a friend of a friend who just got out of jail and he kept using the word dinky. It's the only other time I've heard the word used. Anyways cool article.
