    I just started training last month at this new gym.

    I realized last week I've never once seen them clean their mats off(besides sweeping).

    Now I have ringworm IN THREE PLACES.

    :squint:

    Whats worse is I have 2 bars of fight soap packed up from when I moved and I was just to lazy to find them. :hs:

    Are you going to get a tattoo of the gym logo on your other arm?

    No, I'm just training their for lack of anywhere else to roll.

    That and I can't get any tattoos before I leave for basic.

    I was also told I can't fight before I leave :(

    When I got interviewed before I was accepted in to the Special Tactics school I mentioned I fought. It got relayed up.

    I got a call asking if I planned on fighting before I left. I told them I would like to.

    I was told, very simply, "no, you're not".

    I don't even know if they have a bucket and bleach.

    I'm half tempted to just show up with a mop/bucket/and a gallon of bleach.

    3.

    Where I lived at for college(our club).

    In Memphis where I drove a few times a week to train and actually get better.

    This one in Jackson where I live now.

    This isn't a great gym. They teach "MMA" only. So it is a bunch of kids that are trying to learn stand up, wrestling, BJJ, and GnP all at the same time.

    The instructor is a legit fighter, but he only has 3 nights a week he can teach for a few hours.

    But hell, it is a place to roll and it is a good group of guys to hang out and train with.

    i don't like the way it discolors the mats and pinesol smells better:o but theres like a cleaner you can get at dicks sporting goods thats specifically made for athletic surfaces and that shit is the bomb, but expensive

    no offense but military is some serious brainwashing, my old man was an officer in the Russian Military back in the day. and he got my ass out of there so that I didnt have to do service. I dont understand why people in US are dying to get into it..

    It started out because I couldn't find a job. Now that I've joined and I'm getting a chance to be a PJ, I really want to do it. I want to know I did something with my life worth doing, and saving lives is what I want to do. I've never committed to doing anything in my life, I always quit half way through. This is my chance to screw my balls on and do something that is really hard, but has a big payback. I want to know that my life made a difference.
