    And it was like being in an inner city movie by Spike Lee. It was ghetto as hell. I swear you could grow crops on the floor because of all the dirt. I had to go barefoot because I was working on my kicks. My feet ended up having crusts of dirt after my workout. It was mostly blacks, hispanics, and a couple of dark asians working out when I was there.

    I also got yelled at for kicking the bags...apparently I can't kick the bags because they wear out quicker that way. Wat. So I just worked on my hands, elbows, and telegraphed my knees and kicks instead.

    Despite the atmosphere and how the crowd looked...I got treated with respect nevertheless. No one gave me shit at all, and it was cool seeing these inner city kids spending their time at the gym.

    They had a boxing ring too which looked pretty beat up...and I swear if I become wealthy I want to help this youth center out big time. The guy who runs it has been in the news often because he's struggling to keep the gym funded. Got to give him props for his dedication.

    I'm not being rascist at all...and I chose my words carefully :mamoru:. I'm tempted to post a cage crib style video so I can show you it.

    I'm the soap guy, and hit me a PM for a sample. All I ask in return is an honest feedback of the product. My username has always been the same.

    I'm creating a line of handmade organic and vegan soaps for combat athletes. Each of the soaps will have ingredients that have antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.

    I handed out samples a while ago to a couple of people here, but very few gave back feedback...so I'm handpicking whom I send out samples to this time around.

    Been working on the formulas for awhile now, and they've improved a lot from my first batches.

    Its only bar soap at this point, only because we throw in exfoliants that actually scrub when you use the bar. I believe its more effective than liquid soap in that aspect because you need a puff or washcloth to get the same effect.

    It's shaped in a pretty compact design because its intended to be thrown inside a gym bag. My gym bag is a small knapsack, and it settles in perfectly.

    I'll throw you a sample either way because I know its going to change your mind about bar soaps.

    When I go back to the youth center...I'll make a cage crib video ftw

    Thats kinda like my gym except its all Polish people and Mexicans.

    The gym is funded mostly by the city though. They bought us a new ring which is pretty nice. Before we just had wrestling mats and ropes going between two walls.

    Yup, and I don't mind it in my bag because it kinda deodorizes my stuff too.

    This youth center is lucky to still be funded by the city. This place almost got shut down because of local budget cuts or something.

    Same here...and I end up wasting a lot of bodywash because it splatters all over the shower when you rub it on your body. Having washcloths and puff suck because having another wet and soggy item is something you don't want in the bag right?

    Nothing beats the feeling of actually scrubbing your body with soap.

    I was in the shower scrubbing for a good hour today after my workout. My feet were literally black from the dirty floor. I also scuffed up my elbows pretty good...so I washed the rash real well too lol. I think getting aids from that gym is no fun.

    Just send me a PM...and make a video when you try it out :rofl:

    I hate having smelly hands. I used to get that funk a lot when I only had one pair of wraps and didn't wash them often. For some reason the stench just sticks even after washing. I know better know, and plus those were the tests I subjected the soaps to. If the soap didnt get the smell out...it failed.
